"Vistaprint has one of the largest libraries of premade templates, making it great for designing on-site, but the lack of custom options can really limit choices. "

Ordering (4.1/5.0)

Advertiser Disclosure

Ordering through Vistaprint.com was, overall, a pleasant ordering experience. The only issue we found was the large amount of cross-sell options and “specials” that we were forced to click past. The site was overall easy to navigate, and both the artwork file uploading process and the online postcard design tool were easy to use, and we encountered no major problems.

Quality (4.0/5.0)

The overall print quality of the postcards from Vistaprint.com was just average. The colors in the print did not exactly match the specific Pantone colors we included in our design. Also, the clarity of text, lines, and gradients were sometimes blurry and sometimes crisp, while the cut around the border was also inconsistent.

Value (4.3/5.0)

The postcards from Vistaprint.com were a great value. Both the starting price and the cost per print were among the cheapest we reviewed, and although the quality was certainly not the best, we found it to be very impressive for the low price tag. Not completely the best of both worlds, but still a solid overall value. Don't forget to use a Vistaprint promo code at checkout to save big on your order.
