Business Card Printing Services

Moo

Pros:

  • High quality default card (scored 5 out of 5 stars)
  • High quality templates made by graphic designers
  • Free double-sided printing
  • Standard shipping time of 3-4 business days (Market Standard is one week)
  • Faster shipping option available: 1-2 Day
  • Phone, email and live chat customer support available

Cons:

  • High cost: costs 35 cents/card (Market Standard is 8 cents/card)

Conclusion:

Moo offers the highest quality cards we’ve reviewed and feature stylish graphic designs.  Moo is great for anyone who wants unique business card designs created by a staff of professional designers. However, we found it somewhat difficult to create a card from scratch using their design editor and recommend that you stick with the templates. Moo is also the most expensive option we’ve reviewed, but for the price you get quality cards and free double-sided printing (which is not offered by most of the other printing companes).

Pros:

  • High quality templates made by graphic designers
  • Free double-sided printing
  • Free shipping available
  • Faster shipping options available:  1-Day and 2-Day
  • Phone customer support available

Cons:

  • High cost: costs 13 cents/card (Market Standard is 8 cents/card)
  • PDF proof or hardcopy proof is not available

Conclusion:

Zazzle is one of the only companies we’ve reviewed with free double-sided printing and free shipping. They also offer a wide variety of fonts and high quality predesigned templates that you can use to create your business cards. The only major downside is that they won't let you upload any designs or artwork that you've already created to be printed. They also do not offer a proof of your design that you can check and approve before your place your order. They offer standard quality paper business cards, and their design tool is relatively easy to use. Although their business cards cost more than the market average, their free shipping and free double-sided printing makes up for the cost.

Pros:

  • Easy to create a card from scratch with their design tool (scored 4 out of 5 stars)
  • Free shipping available
  • Standard shipping time of 3-7 business days (Market Standard is one week)
  • Faster shipping options available: Next Day, 1-2 Day, 3-Day
  • Phone, email and live chat customer support available

Cons:

  • High cost: costs 11 cents/card (Market Standard is 8 cents/card)

Conclusion:

123Print offers quality business cards and is one of the only companies we’ve reviewed with free shipping.  Although 123Print has higher-than-Market Standard pricing, their free shipping option definitely makes up for the price. They also have faster shipping options for an additional fee. In addition to regular business cards, they also offer several special options, such as mini cards, rounded corners, linen cards, and magnetic/metal cards. You can select from a range of card stocks (or card thickness) that go up to 15 point, which is thicker than our Market Standard 14 point.

Pros:

  • Free shipping available
  • Phone, email and live chat customer support available

Cons:

  • Low quality default card (scored 2 out of 5 stars)
  • Standard shipping time of 14 business days (Market Standard is one week)

Conclusion:

Vista Print offers low cost cards and lots of options and upgrades.  Vista Print is arguably the largest and most well-known business cards brand. As such, they offer very low prices and lots of business cards options, including recycled paper, foil accents and “fold-over” business cards. However, compared to some of the other companies we’ve reviewed Vista Print offers lower quality business cards, which are smaller and thinner than the average card. They also charge for things that are usually included for free with your cards, such as uploading your logo and receiving a proof. While they do offer a free shipping option, their standard shipping time is longer than our one-week Market Standard.

Conclusion:

iPrint offers fairly good business cards at lower-than-Market Standard pricing. You can quickly and easily create a card design with their online design editor and have it shipped to you in one week or less, depending on the shipping option you select. In addition to standard, they offer linen cards, which is a special material not offered by many other online printing companies. The only disadvantage is that they don’t provide you with a proof of your design before you order, which constitutes proof for your money-back guarantee.

Conclusion:

GreatFX offers high quality cards and special card options at a fair, nearly Market Standard price. GreatFX has one of the most user-friendly design editors we’ve reviewed, which lets you create and customize your card easily. GreatFX also offers special options, such as recycled paper, raised print (with an embossed feel), rounded corners, and fold-over cards. They also offer fast standard shipping time and faster shipping options for an extra fee.

Pros:

  • Low cost: costs 6 cents/card (Market Standard is 8 cents/card)
  • High quality default card (scored 4 out of 5 stars)
  • Faster shipping options available: Next Day and 1-2 Day, and 3-Day shipping
  • Phone, email and live chat customer support available

Cons:

  • No design tool (scored 0 out of 5 stars)

Conclusion:

PrintPlace is a good choice for people who have already created design for their business cards. The main advantage of PrintPlace is that they offer quality cards at a lower than average cost. However, they are print-only service and do not provide you with design templates or tools to help you create a business card from scratch, which are offered by many other services we’ve reviewed. PrintPlace meets all of our standards for a business cards printing service and also offer special card options, such as rounded corners, special cutouts/shapes and foldover cards.

Pros:

  • High quality default card (scored 5 out of 5 stars)
  • Easy to create a card from scratch with their design tool (scored 5 out of 5 stars)
  • Low cost: costs 6 cents/card (*Use the discount code "choosewhat" to get this 30% discount.)
  • Faster shipping options available: 1-3 business days
  • Phone customer support available

Cons:

  • Standard shipping time of 10-12 business days (Market Standard is one week)

Conclusion:

Prinly is an excellent choice for online business cards, as they offer high quality cards at a low cost. Prinly is a relatively new online printing service that we were quite impressed with for several reasons. They offer the thickest card stock on the market with their default card and a choice of matte or glossy finish. Their card design editor was very easy to use, and they provide more than 2,000 design templates from which you can choose a design. Prinly offers special card options that include rounded corners, linen cards and magnetic cards. The only disadvantage we found is that they have a longer than average turnaround time of 10-12 business days, but if you use the discount code "choosewhat" you'll be eligible to receive your cards in 3-7 days even when you select the 10-12 day shipping option.

UPrinting also has special options and upgrades that aren’t offered by many other companies, such as recycled paper, rounded corners and “die-cut” or custom card shapes. They offer helpful phone, email and live chat support to assist you with designing and ordering your cards.

Pros:

  • Low cost: costs 2 cents/card (Market Standard is 8 cents/card)
  • Standard shipping time of 2-5 business days (Market Standard is one week)

Cons:

  • Low quality default card (scored 2 out of 5 stars)
  • Difficult to create a card from scratch with their design tool (scored 0 out of 5 stars)
  • Low quality template designs
  • Costs $10 extra to upload a custom image or logo

Conclusion:

T-Rex Cards offers the cheapest, simplest cards on the market. T-Rex Cards is a good option if you need cheap cards that are printed and shipped fast. They offer only both flat and raised print, which is a type of print that gives your cards an embossed look and feel. In addition to standard paper card stock, they offer linen cards. However, T-Rex has drawbacks that may make it an undesirable option. Compared to other companies we’ve reviewed T-Rex Cards offers lower quality cards printed on flimsy 9.5 point card stock. Their template designs are simpler and less stylish than those of their competitors. Also, the extra cost of $10 to add your logo to your card is somewhat expensive. We recommend this company for those that have budget or time constraints.
