VistaPrint business card option

So I started a new laptop repair business. Im about to order 500cards for 9.99 (promo). Im going to choose the glossy option, I see for 11$ more I can select signature glossy. Is there a big difference in the quality and look between these 2?

Thanks

Depends on how you define 'big', I would pay the extra 11.

Another thing, don't pay for faster shipping, even where it states '3 weeks' the cards will get to you within 3-4 days.

The business cards at Vista are slightly smaller than standard business cards. It also uses thinner stock. This may or may not make a difference to you.

Hmmm, I found them the same size and quite thick.

Ordered some and they seemed cheap looking. Cost doubles or more once you add shipping and any extras, and they do try to get you to buy extras.

I have ordered both signature linen and signature matte. Was happy and impressed by both, though I think I prefer the matte. Just seems simple and classy.

Remember: make sure to use a cash back site and a coupon code. Vistaprint is like Canadian tire, you should never have to pay full price.

BTW, groupon has a deal on every once in a while $17 for $50 worth of vistaprint. Keep your eye out. I've been very pleased with my cards from VP. Ordered premium, double sided...no issues. Throw in a coupon and even better. Their $9.99 is the bottom end, with VP logo on the back (cheeeze)
Not your standard VoIP. Different and novel options & advice for my RFD friends.

lol might be hard for a customer to take you seriously if you have the VP logo on the back. Pay a little extra and not advertise for VistaPrint.

I ended up going with Signature Linen and just received them today. Card stock *feels* just a little thinner, but overall pretty happy with them

Protip: don't ever go with the free 'standard' business cards. They have the vista print logos on the card and feel paper thin.
Pay a bit more and go with the 'signature' cards. I've used both matte and glossy options and they turned out great.
Linen seems to be a new option so I can't speak for that.

Also find online coupons to offset the shipping costs. Or sign up for their mailing list (they always send out promo codes).
