    depends what you are printing. but kinko's is generally much more expensive. especially if you are printing anything in color.

      Well..I have never used Kinkos - but I SWEAR by vistaprint!! I love them... http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t29462

      Don't forget to use the ".com" not ".ca" even though you are in Canada...it is cheaper from the US!

        I vote for VistaPrint too! We ordered our announcement cards from them -their price & quality are hard to beat.

        We picked the cheapest delivery & received everything in less then 2 weeks :)

          That's what I always do too...pick the "slow" shipping which turns out is not slow at all!! I ordered address labels (two different sets with custom pics) on Thursday the 18th and they were at the house when I got home from work yesterday...thats 7 days!!! They are great!!!

            Have you looked at smaller local printers? I used these for work as they are less expensive than Kinkos.

            I ordered postcards from Vista and though it was cheap, it was not the best quality. I won't be using them for the rest of the items.

                  Make sure you use their "free" items sale where you just pay for shipping. I highly recommend Vistaprint. I agree, don't pay extra for the fast shipping, it doesn't make much difference. We got our STD magnets, STD calendar magnets, tentiative rsvp and final rsvp postcards, calendar, tshirt, hat, pens, letterhead, post it notes, thank you cards, large postcards. We uploaded some images, which costs about $5, and they payed for some extra envelopes for $5, and then payed for shipping. Everything was under $50. Awesome!

                    Yes, I was very bummed as had seen so many great comments on them. I did the postcards with a picture I took with a 12megapixel camera of the arch in Los Cabos on the front with a small b&w image of it on the back with a thank you message from us to our guests. We were going to put this in our welcome bags with a handwritten note from us on the back. They came out blury (the photo is printed here 8x11 with no blur so it's not the pic) and a white line down the right side. I am trying to decide if (since it is free) if I should try again or not. Shipping was $8....
