10 Best Business Card Printing Businesses

You're starting up a new business or offering your services, and that's great. However, to be taken seriously you can't scribble your contact information on a piece of paper, you need a business card. Sure, there are plenty of print shops to choose from, but who can you really depend on? Who's going to give you the best printing, without taking a pint of blood in return? Well, here's my suggestion for the 10 best business card print shops online:

100 FREE Business cards- 240x120

Overnight Prints is by far my favorite printer. If it wasn't obnoxious, I would list them as my second and third favorite, too. Most print shops offer you 12pt or 14pt business cards, but Overnight Prints offers 15pt business cards (one of the thickest business card papers you can get) and they have free designs to choose from, just in case you don't have your own design yet.

Full Color Business Cards from

Print Place is a print shop worth getting excited about. They offer you 14pt printing, which means thick and durable paper for your business cards. While not as good as 15pt, this is still a worthwhile printing company that will handle your largest and busiest orders with ease.

Quality Printing for Less at

Print Runner is another 14pt business card print shop whose quality prints and fast turnaround times are sure to impress even the most wary customers.

UPrinting - Online Printing Services!

With 14pt business card paper and a free design tool that will keep you from having to touch Photoshop or pay a graphic designer, UPrinting business cards will satisfy your needs. If you don't want standard rectangular cards, UPrinting also has die-cut cards with rounded corners.

Full Color Printing from PsPrint

PSPrint is one of those companies that always seems to be running a sale, which is great for the new business owner who can't spend much but still needs quality. Clocking in as another 14pt business card printer, PSPrint, if used at the right times, can be the cheapest and best print shop for your needs.

$50 off $100+ order!

Printing For Less, with 14pt paper, takes a different philosophy than other print shops. They are a green printer which uses soy-based inks and only prints on paper that was sustainably harvested.

Free Shipping On Every Order - No Minimums!

123Print offers 12pt business card, the industry standard, and offers 1,000s of free designs. While a good company, they are on the lower end, due to their thinner paper. However, they offer better designs than some of the others, so it's still worth checking out.

30% Off Custom Business Cards at iPrint!

iPrint has many different designs to choose from with their 12pt business cards. However, many of these designs look out of date, so if you're going with iPrint it's best to supply your own design.

250 FREE Business Cards

Budget Prints is exactly as it sounds, a printer with budget-priced products to help you cope with your printing expenses. With 10pt business cards paper, these are not the most durable cards, but they are offered at a very cheap price, so this would be good for businesses just starting out.

we print postcards and more

1-800 Postcards is a respectable company with 14pt business card paper. However, the problem with this company is that, unless you are getting a large order of business cards, the order is rather pricy (such as 100 business cards for over $50). This print shop is best if you need over 5,000 business cards, otherwise it really isn't worth it.

10 Best Web Hosts

When it comes time to placing your website online, you need the top Web host to the best you possibly can. Here I have arranged the top 10 hosts you can find online, and reasons why they are they best. Try them out and tell us about your experience.

Professional Hosting from Just Host

Just Host is our top pick for the 10 best hosts. They offer the best prices for shared hosting, have a great customer service team, and have an amazing website management tool. Whether you're starting out, have a business website, or want to transfer your blog over paid hosting instead of free, Just Host is your best bet. They have a guaranteed 99.99% uptime rate, a huge library of scripts to use, and you even get your first domain free for life.

Host Gator has served me well in the past. Slightly more expensive than Just Host, Host Gator comes packed with a capable management tool and has a range of powerful servers to suit your biggest websites. Web Hosting $6.95

I really like Blue Host, which is why they come third on our list. The biggest problem I have with them, is that they will shut down your website if they find any profanity on it. If you don't plan to have any on your website, this is a great host. If you do, you should probably use someone else.


IX Web Hosting will register up to three domains for you, for free, and gives you a maximum of 15 different IPs, which is really useful for you SEO pros out there.

iPage Affordable Web Hosting only $3.50/mo

iPage is a green host that relies on wind energy to power their servers. They also come equipped with a professional website builder with drag-and-drop technology. The biggest problem here is that, unless you are entirely new to building websites, they website builder is bulky and unwieldy at times, but if you don't know anything about cPanel, this may be the best place for you to start your website.

PowWeb Hosting - Only $3.88 per month

Pow Web comes with a script installer, for those of you who can't figure out how to install WordPress or other script programs, that they swear is better than the Fantastico module used in most other hosts. They also give you over $100 in ad credits when you join up.

Web Hosting Solution

Omnis hosting offers both Linux and Windows based hosting plans, and offers domains at cheaper than most market prices. Their hosting prices are a bit more expensive, but if you are looking for Windows hosting (a rarity among hosts) this will help your website grow.

Host Unlimited Domains on 1 Account

Offering a free domain for life, unlimited hosting, many script supports and a module to make a custom forum, Host Monster is one of the best hosts online. They also offer a free website builder, just in case you can't stand the sight of HTML.

Super Green Hosting is another green hosting business dedicated to supplying the features of online hosting, without any carbon footprint. With a host of scripts and free domains and domain transfers, Super Green is another top choice for your hosting needs.
