    I use Vistaprint for all of that stuff - business cards, note cards, mailing labels, etc. Great prices and lots of templates and you are able to upload logos and stuff.

    I know that there are other on-line and brick/mortar places but I really like the cardstocks that Vistaprint uses. Great quality, nice feel, consistent quality. IMHO

    I print my business cards, labels, etc, using templates in MS Word and my personal printer. Pick up supplies as needed at the local office supply store. I don't print a lot of any of it so it works for me. If you are talking about large quantities, vistaprint or another source might be the answer just due to ink costs.

    I agree with using VistaPrint. Low cost, high quality and all kinds of accessories if wanted. Design your own cards.

    Vistaprint for me too. Professional . No perforated edges like you get from making your own where you tear them from a card stock sheet. You can upload your own design or logo and play with placement settings, letter fonts, etc. They save your designs. Easy to re-order. Love Vistaprint. Reasonable pricing. I should buy stock in the company!

    The print shop in my town tries to tell you what you want or talks you out of what you want. They want to do it their way. I use Vistaprint. I just ordered baby shower invitations, banners, party favors, and thank you cards from Vistaprint. They are nice and just what I wanted.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    I used to work in a print shop, and I've printed my own on a laser printer, but when I want cards I use Vistaprint. It's the most cost-effective for the best quality.
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.
