    Looking for get about 4 sets of 500 business cards printed :) Would love to see where is the cheapest place (without sacrificing too much on quality). We’ve tried vista print before and the quality is subpar. Looking to spend under $80 for each 500 set.

    Any suggestions guys :)? We’re in Sydney!

    I’m on my second set of business cards. The first was from Vistaprint, as I got sucked in by their somewhat misleading advertising – sure, the base price was very cheap, but once you add all the little extras and shipping it ends up costing the same or more as the local places. The quality of the cards was very ordinary.

    My second set of cards I got printed recently through Dark Horse printing They are local, the quality was exceptional and it worked out to $80 for 1000 cards. I couldn’t be happier.

    Please note that in both cases I designed the cards myself, so I have no experience with the design services at either company.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers,
    John

    As in any industry, you really get what you pay for!

    Lower prices generally means the stock/printing isn’t as good or that your celloglazes will peel up in no time.

    Can recommend Jake from Emroy Printing for superb quality – I would give him a call and see if you can work something out for the 4 sets.

    Good luck :)

    Ordering first batch of business cards right now! I got the designs ready and was just about order from Vistaprint because they have a special offer up and running. But they’re not worth it?

    I got the designs, and only need cards for me and my partner.. 100 each.

    Hi Nick,

    I just received my business cards, $56 including delivery at Red Print.
    It’s 250 cards. The quality is pretty good but there is another option for $99.

    http://www.redprint.com.au

    BUSINESS CARDS
    Full colour 2 Sides on thick 350gsm card with UV varnish
    250 for only $49

    Next time, I will go with the $99 option but for now, they’re look good (not cheap though).

    Regards,
    Mel

    I use expresscards.com.au for all my printing needs. Quality is expensionals and prices are very competitive. With business cards I usually get 1000 mat laminated $70 (no other costs such as shipping).

    They are very professional and if there is something wrong with your artwork they call you straight away to notify you.

    They’ve always got a special, and no, they’re not worth it. I got a set of their ultra awesome super dooper cards, which were so bad that I binned them. They did refund my money, so they were good in that respect.

    YMMV

    Vistaprint is over-rated due to their aggressive marketing strategies. I’ve received quite a lot of spam faxes from them in the past.

    I’ve used Saltprint in the past, and they have good value for money.. good quality prints, and would use them again.
