I ordered from Moo.com and UVCards. The quality of UV cards is much better than Moo. I'd suggest going with them. Moo is cheaper though and are still nice cards. UV cards just seems better quality and their strict printing guidlines give you the results you expect. Also, UVcards had a black friday deal where it was 50 bucks for 500 cards. Couldn't pass that up! Came out to about 70 bucks after the UV coating and round edges.

Here's a shot of my Moo cards. I don't have a shot of the UV cards yet though.

^^Thanks for that, have never used UV cards before. Just ordered a pack of 1000 from Gotprint. Shipping to Canada was double the price of the cards themselves :|

Should get them next week!

ew, don't use vistaprint..I already made that mistake, it's not a product any real professional should feel good putting their name on.

Absolutely correct...

If you go on to Vista Print the website you can create your own for all sorts of different companies and it is really cheap too :)

Agreed, their cards are cheap as in cheap quality. They lure people in with low or free prices. I've read many people posting on here about problems with quality of what they get back from them.

This is the place I've used. Double side color (can use your own images without extra cost unlike VistaPrint) thick, glossy paper. $1000 for $25 plus shipping. http://www.printdirect​forless.com/business-card-printing.html (external link)

Call me old fashioned, but I prefer to keep the back of my sailing Instructor cards plain white so that I or the recipient can scribble down little reminder notes.

White (or silver) on thick black card always looks good...

Some great cards in this thread. I too like keeping some white space so people can scribble stuff on them. My first card is targeting my event/wedding/portrait clients and the other is for commercial/architectur​al clients.

Although not photo related, my bus. cards were double sized,,folded in middle giving 4 areas. could put more info on them,,without looking cluttered, also had one face for jotting notes or quick quote, always left back side blank. The big advantage,,,they stood out from the crowd,,people always did a double take when you handed it to them,,,plus you always give it to them fold so when they put it down it stood up on its own, standing out from the hoards of regular cards. A inexpensive way to diferenate you from the rest.
