Default How do these cards look?

I got my new site up and want to print some cards now that I've decided on a name. I wasn't going to change my store name (was AVDesigns) but when I went to purchase my domain name it was already taken so I thought of something else. Elbie Baby (Elbie is a goofy nickname I call my son). Designed my bow cards and I'm going to have them printed on the standard size postcard from vistaprint.com

I'm thinking I should include something on the back about small supervision and such. I'll do a search here because I know I read something that someone had used. Any tips? Does it look okay? Should I add anything else?

OK..I added another. I made the web addy smaller and added my email addy. Better?

That's cute. How much do you pay for those cards? I'm planning to have bow cards so my bows would look professional.

I've ordered from vistaprint before and I'm constantly getting emails for free products. So, I am actually getting 100 cards printed (they'll be print as postcards and I'll cut it in half for the 2 cards shown). I'll have to pay shipping.

Try vistaprint.com They're great. They do my biz cards as well.

okay you guys i was just wondering since they are free and all which I like but are they the same as cardstock? I am thinking if that is the case I can just print my own from my own paper as well. just a thought if they are thicker than I wouldn't mind getting them seeing how that will save me time to make and design them too.....

What size postcard do you use? Standard or oversized?

They look great! To answer one of the questions of another poster, the standard sized postcards that they offer for free are heavier and better quality than cardstock. They are glossy, and much more professional than anything I could do on my home printer. They are like a regular postcard. You pay (around $4 I think) to upload the design for the first time, but after that you don't have to pay for the upload.

**Here is a TIP to save money** On the design you upload to vistaprint, do NOT add text to the uploaded image. Upload the design, without the text. You can add text through vistaprint, to get the look you want. The benefit to doing this is that you can then revise the card through vistaprint, adding any text you want, without having to pay another uploading fee. For example, add some text for the bow cards, but add different text for promotional materials. Same background, different text, and only uploaded (and charged) once.


I LOVE vistaprint, and use them for just about everything.
