For the past several years I've been mailing out Thank You cards from VistaPrint to all my Activity Directors, and those that have hired me for private parties. Those cards are dirt cheap from Vista Print and they really produce.

This year, they're offering custom Christmas cards for as little as $4.99 for 10 cards, which is less expensive than purchasing regular cards in a card shop. That equates to just .49 cents per card, and for the good will it creates between you and your clients, it is priceless.

Take a look at VistaPrint

good luck,

Gary cool

That's interesting. I heard that here in Europe Vistaprint is supposed to be a kind of trap that first woos customers with cheap prices, but somehow it's quickly getting expensive. But I haven't made any experiences myself.

I've been dealing with VistaPrint for more than a decade now and never had a problem with price increases - NEVER!. They've always been above board, and right up front with their prices. Like every business, they have promotional specials, but the quality is top notch, the prices have always been less than half the local print shops, and they deliver on time every time. Can't say enough good things about them.

My card is one that I custom made, online with Vistaprint. It's just a photo of me playing the keyboard and in extra large print the words "Thank You" across the bottom of the card. On the back of the card, it has my name, address, telephone number and Email address. It's just a post card, and all I have to do is slap on an address label and a stamp. Quick, easy and efficient. The Christmas cards are a great deal, and they're less expensive now than they were a couple years ago.

Donny, I think I already posted this one, but I'll have to check the photo files to be sure.

This is the photo I used, but it says "Thank You" across the top in bold, white letters.

I've been ordering cards from Vista print for a few years never a problem. Just had to reorder some cards today to update a phone number. This is the first time got an invoice from VistaPrint, Netherlands. When you check out they try to sell you lots of extras, but just keep clicking until you get to the payment screen
