I ordered business cards through Mpix my last couple times around. A box of 100 is $20, with gloss being an additional $3.00.
Then, Noel told me about GotPrint, which is all he uses. They’re in Burbank — much closer to me than Mpix.[1. Located in Missouri.] With a one day turnaround, plus one day for shipping, I just received my GotPrint order of 500 business cards[2. Plus 10 extra, wow!] for $10.99![3. Plus tax if you’re in California.]
GotPrint uses gloss on both front and back sides of the cards, while Mpix only uses gloss on the front.
The difference you see in my [horrible] photo above is because their Photoshop template required web-only colors. Also, the scaling was a bit smaller. I didn’t adjust my layers for this when I copied them from the previous file. The gradient on the GotPrint cards looks better than from Mpix, but that might be because these cards are kept in my wallet.
Ultimately, I love ’em! When it comes to business cards, it’s GotPrint.
