I got mine through vistaprint.com. Order once, and about everyday they send you an offer for 250 more for free.

vistaprint.com hmm i have heard about lots of cc stealing.

I use overnightprints.com or whcc.com

White House Custom Color. You can order 50 for $12, you just have to design the card on your own.

I make my own, they're more personal and cool.

I used vistaprints once. Shipping took FOREVER. Many of my cards were cut poorly.

I used overnightprints for our wedding thank-you's, and was much happier with the cost, shipping, and overall quality.

You get a sucker from WHCC.

WHCC design you own and they get super quick and look great.

My shipped quick, were cut straight, and the quality was just at the level I expected for what I payed. CC is still intact.

Though this probably explains the deep inner vibe that left me feeling dirty by ordering from the first result on Google. ;)

Overnightprints.com is where I got mine. I think I ended up with 500 cards for about 50 bucks. They were very fast, double sided printing, and glossy on the front even.

You just have to design them yourself...

I like crayons and construction paper, myself.

EDIT: Actually, I use MOO cards. That probably makes me some kind of jerk :-).

I like MOO cards, but I was placing an order with WHCC when I ordered by business cards, so it was just cheaper and easier for me to go with them. ;-)

I print my own and trim them up -- I get 27 double sided for about $8 for paper and ink. (MOAB Entrada 13x19 paper on my old epson 2000P pigment printer.)

If you are in dire need of a short run of cards (and you have them designed already), we can probably make a deal.

Thin clear plastic cards, homemade

I have actually been looking into plastic cards. Care to share the technique?

I used inkjet transparency which seem to turn out alright. But they are really thin, I hope to find some thicker ones sometime.

I think I bought the premium so the ultra premiums might work better.

I love the plastic cards! I have some think transparency but the ink never seems to dry for me. I just have a lexmark printer, not sure if that has anything to do with it. I was using them to print radiographs for case study. I let them dry for a few days but the still smeared =(. I wish I knew how to do this. I found a few ok priced companies though. What are you printing with?

When I tried printing it the first time the ink seemed really thick and didn't work at all. "didn't dry either" But then I realized I was trying to print on the wrong side of the sheet since it is only single sided. So I flipped the sheet over and it worked just fine.

I'm using the pictorico transparency film "made for inkjet" which is suppost to be the best along with a canon mp510 printer.
