Great questions. I personally love using Vistaprint because of the scale of my current business. I find them to be a great service for the small business owner if time and design are not an issue. If I need some thing quickly and I want to see proofs then I use another provider.
I always laugh when I get a vista print “FREE” business card. It does not look like you are serious when you don’t even spend $20 to get some real cards.
Vistaprint had a “bonus” offer via email last few weeks. I ended up ordering 250 Premium cards @ $ 10.00, with Blank Back Side (included) and used 100-lb Premium Matte Paper ($ 19.74). FYI. I decided against Glossy, primarily on the back side where “people like me” like to write notes. I really liked the templates to choose from which Vistaprint offered. I’m looking forward to these cards this week. Cheers, Art.
Personally you cannot go wrong with Moo.com … small runs … back and front … and superb quality.
