  • Maybe, given the circumstances, slightly better options than VP can be found. Have you checked out tinyprints or storkie? (from the goog, I have no personal experience with either service).
    Sketching not only helps you work out good ideas, it helps you get past the bad ones.

      Are you sure your hormones aren't wacky too? I think you're reading a little to deeply into what sending a card you didn't design says. It's says "Merry Pancaking Christmas MotherPancakers!" just like it would in a card you designed.
      Design is not decoration.

        We agreed upon 1 card they had. we sat through about 2 hours looking over cards. by the end she said, you don't really like any of these, i guess. I felt like saying you don't like mine.

        idunno. I get to make announcements and then some stickers to use for the candle pass-outs. i guess it is her thing to do anyway, just feels weird not to do it. but i get to design lots of birthday things.
        I'm sure your work kicks the hell out of anything you'd find on VP. Tell her that.

          nuh-uh.
          actually the one we "picked" out says "Peace on Earth"
          it probably is a 'pride' thing though as most might not even know i designed it anyway.

          many designs on VP seemed 80's or as even my wife stated, must be on some crazy drugs.

          • I hate Vista Print, and the commercials suck big time. Biased corporate self self-serving propaganda.

            • I just visited the Vista Print site. Coincidentally clicked on the banner ad at the top of GDF's page. Boy oh boy they do EVERYTHING!

              • what's a banner ad?

                  • i did a invitation for someone that used vista print. i got a couple of the invites for my portfolio and they messed up royally. now i'm not sure if the problem was user or on their end. i used the template i was provided and included bleed, but they printed without a bleed and shrunk the art. again it might have been user error uploading but i wasn't pleased with the outcome.

                      • Vista Print is designing EVERYTHUNG!!! wideformat / offset / digital / youname it man they do eeet!
                        BUT there is also Web- Design - Coding - Graphics Flash et-all..... AND webhosting, drill a bit further down in the website they can do everything.

                        I wonder if Vistaprint will air rebuttals to any negative "endorsements"?

                              • VP buys up printers all over to get a hold on any printing/design/art stuff to add to their collection.

                                Honestly, I am over it now.pushing beyond this (mainly because she wanted to pull the trigger last night and get them ordered but had clothes from a baby shower to go through instead). Anyway, next on my agenda, is to pick out a typeface to use and finish a baby sticker. and get the house ready for Christmas and Baby.
