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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 However, many of these designs look out of date, so if you're going with iPrint it's best to supply your own design.
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.
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.
