How To Order Business Cards Online with PrintingForLess {Review}

Friday, August 15, 2014

I received a free box of business cards from PrintingForLess in order to facilitate an honest review; All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links.

So, you're in need of business cards, and you think you need to hire someone to design them for you? Not anymore. With the online printing business boom came the ability on most printer's websites to design your own cards from a library of templates; It's a rarity these days not to find an online card designer, and it's not hard; I'll show you how!

I received a box of business cards from PrintingForLess for review, where "It's Right. It's On Time. Or It's Free!"

The cards ordered for me were the 500 count, 4/4 (four-color printing on both sides), 120# Gloss Cover 14pt, with FREE gloss aqueous coating.

The cards came in a nice plastic box. As a graphic designer, I've ordered a ton of business cards from several companies for myself, individual clients, and businesses. None has come in something as useful as this. It will be a great way to store the extra cards dust-free and easily identifiable. This would come in very handy if you had multiple employees and wanted to see at a glance whose cards were whose.

The quality of the printing was good: clear and as specified.

Here you can see the effect of the gloss stock with the gloss aqueous coating.

And also the thickness of the cards.

The cost of 500, 4/4, 120# Gloss Cover 14pt, with FREE gloss aqueous coating is $66.90, and shipping to my area of TN was $9.35 for a total of $76.25 for a huge box of custom business cards. If this sounds good to you, read on and I'll show you how to get your own set of custom business cards from PrintingForLess.

Go to PFL's Business Cards page and click the link under "I need a design."

Under "Select Your Options", choose your Industry (I'll choose "Creative"). You can then choose to see ALL under the Creative category, or further narrow down your choices (I'll choose "Graphic Design"). And lastly you can choose whether you want printing on the front only, or both sides. Then click on "Get Started."

Using those parameters, I got 27 fabulous design choices! You can click each set of cards to view the front and back of the design close-up. Once you choose a design, you can customize it by clicking "Get Started." 

From this screen you can change the color theme of the card...

Upload your logo and change your text.

Then flip to the other side and input your own text there...and you're done!

You then preview and approve the card to be printed. Make sure you check all text for accuracy; You do not want to get a box of cards with the wrong phone number!

Once you approve both sides, you'll be able to choose your card options and order! Easy-peasy and no expensive designer needed! Have fun designing your very own Business Cards at PrintingForLess!
