  1. How I Used Online Coupons for Postcards

    I’ve been seeing a lot of Vistaprint commercials lately on TV. Apparently, this company has become quite mainstream and popular. In fact, according to Wikipedia, it is one of the largest printing companies in the world.

    business cardsI first came to know about this company a few years ago when I needed to have some postcards made. I chose Vistaprint because they have a good web tool that lets you design the postcard entirely online. There are pre-designed templates you can choose, then you pretty much just add text to it and format it. Another reason I chose this company was because they were pretty inexpensive, especially when compared to traditional offset printing services. I don’t remember exactly how much I paid, but I believe I used a Vistaprint coupon for 25% off, making the total cost under $100. Whatever your printing needs happen to be there is usually a discount for Vistaprint available from at least one printing website online.

    I think Vistaprint was one of the first printing services online. Nowadays, there are tons of competitors that have opened up, so you have a lot more companies to choose from. On top of that, you can buy ink from stores like Inkfarm and consider doing your own printing as well (more on that below). It seems as the internet matures, the consumer wins because there are more choices available. Not all online printing companies are good, so you should test out any company you are interested in with a small order first. I usually order a small amount of business cards to see what kind of work the company performs.

    If you run a small business and ordering professionally printed cards is not an option, printing your own cards can be a good solution to explore. To do this, you will need to have access to a good printer. Also, make sure you use high-quality ink, which you can buy using ink farm discounts and coupon codes. In the past, I've printed such cards at my place of work, and they usually come out pretty well. However, if possible, you should print cards from a professional printing service, as the results will almost always be better.
