Zazzle Business Cards

Just got my new business cards from Zazzle, and I'm a bit disappointed... AGAIN.

Just once I’d like a site that offers print on demand to actually give me the item in the product preview, and not some close proximity.

I looked all over the site and they never specified exactly where they crop the cards; so I figured since they are giving me a product preview that they would be cropped as shown in the preview, NOT. (yes, I even downloaded the template and it's as vague as their instructions.)

They crop exactly on the Safe Zone Line, even though they don't specify that's the crop mark.


That wasn't the only problem, they did a pretty crappy job of packing them.  They come in small flimsy mylar boxes of 100, one box popped open and several cards were loose in the package; so those cards are garbage, and the rest the corners are pretty banged up.

I guess I'll know for next year IF want to take the chance that Zazzle will do it right next time.

  1. I'd stop using Zazzle, that sounds pretty crappy. I use flyer studios for my postcards, and I've always been happy with quality and price, I havn't looked into their business cards, but I bet its a good deal too.

    The only 'flub' that happened with them so far, is that when I ordered 1000 cards, they sent me 5000 cards, - they had a deal going on and happened to upgrade me to the deal without informing me - I ended up paying a little extra for shipping but nothing more on the order of the cards - I didn't complain because I was happy with the mistake.

  2. Zazzle isn't really a good place to get business cards. Go to a printer that specializes in that and gives you templates, color profiles and sends a digital proof that you can reject and fix before printing. If I wanted 1000 cards there is about 5 times the prices of where I get mine printed.
