I know quite a few people who have used them for different products and have heard no complaints. I myself have had car door magnets from them and they are a great product. Good price too. They do tend to have 'lots' of specials including free ones which you will hear about daily via email but I presume you can unsubscribe easily enough if you don't want spam. The printing quality seems OK too.

Yea, thanks for that, I think its just all the 'Free! with this purchase etc' kind of thing that makes me feel like there is something wrong...

Yup, it is a legit site. I have purchased a number of products from them, ranging from T-shirts to notepads and pens.

Shirts are made in Nicaragua, printed in US.

Very happy with the company :) :) :thumbs:

I always go for the 21 day option, but the products often arrive here within seven days.

The business cards were "poor" quality, but the T-Shirts I've ordered from there were great!

That shouldn't be necessary. They stop sending it to you when you unsubscribe.

Haven't had any problems with them at all, and the quality is acceptable (with business cards, opt for the premium quality, but you have to pay for that). Otherwise, all good. I made a mistake in the layout when I ordered my cards. When I told them about this, they made the alteration, printed off the new cards, and sent them to me via the fast delivery option. Although I had pointed out it was my error, not theirs, they still didn't charge me, not even for postage. Not too many local printers would do that, and match VistaPrint's fast turn around.

It would be easier if they could print the covers, print on the discs etc. Unless i just stay as a digital release for now....

You could try this place Rob. Here (http://www.kurb.co.nz/) in Auckland. I designed a CD cover for a freind & he subsequently got about 500 burned and printed with covers etc. Very good quality and economical but the website does look a bit messy
