Bob - We decided to give VistaPrint a try.  We weren't disappointed with their timeliness or the quality of the product.

Free is a very hard price to beat that is for sure. Clearly they believe in their product and get lots of orders afterward or they wouldn't be able to do this. I may just have to give them a try.

Todd - First, they are very clever with their marketing.  They are willing to provide some freebies in the hopes that they get some business.  Second, they offer multiple items as free.  However, you are limited to the number of free items that you can order.  At some point, after you have selected 2 or 3 items, they start to add these items to your account as paid items.  Third, they have a series of upgrades and option as well as other similarly branded products.  If you still aren't hooked, you still have to run a gauntlet of free adds, service offers, etc. from third parties.  However, for free, it was a price (well really time spent) that I was willing to incur to see the quality of their product.  I was pleased with my first shipment.  I used it to get a customer a stamper with their new address and note pads for free - a little PREA advertising and freebie for the customer.

Hi Ryan,

I used them also.  You are right.  You place the order then they try to sell you multiples, discounts, etc.  I must say they screwed up my order and the quality was sub par.  When I tried to contact them I couldn't get any service.  So I ate it up but won't use them again.
