    I had every intention of printing our AHR postcard invitations through VistaPrint, but after reading some definate negative feedback (including monthy unauthorized charges for one time purchases) throughout the web, I'm a bit leery. Can anyone recommend a safe/ decent/ reasonably priced alternative printer?

      Please don’t use Vistaprint or recommend it to your readers.

      Using Vistaprint could very likely lead to you being signed up to FAKE discount clubs and hundreds of dollars benig taken from you Visa/bank without your knowledge or permission.

      I have a huge blog post with all the details of all of the different scamming sites Vistaprint and Adaptive Affinity run and how best to get a refund.

      According to the Washington Post Don Oldenburg - Same Old Scam, Every Month - washingtonpost.com this negative option selling scam earned the parent company Ventura $650 million in revenue in 2006.

      If you have already used Vistaprint, start checking your bank statements.

          I've used Vista Print several times and haven't had any problems... I made STDs and RSVP postcards most recently. At the end of the ordering process, they do try have several offers for other items, but as long as you are careful not to select any of them I don't see why you should have any problems. I am more than pleased with the items I got from them, and the best part about it is they were FREE!!!!

              I've always had a good experience with Vista Print fortunately -- have used them for my RSVP postcards, brochures in the past and business cards. Honestly, I don't know of any other companies that can beat or match their prices ...

                I've had only great experiences with Vistaprint, but like the ladies above said, you definitely need to read the fine print & make sure you're not signing up for anything you don't want.

                That said, I've also heard good things about overnightprints.com and catprint.com.

                  I haven't printed photos, but I did upload an image and the it turned exactly how the file image appeared on my computer. Since most of their products are free, you could always try them out to see if you are happy with the results. You may be pleasantly surprised, because I sure was :) Hope this helps!!

                    I bit the bullet and went with Vista Print....making sure to click "No, Thanks" and "Skip" on every offer... Now I'm going to be watching my credit card like a hawk.

                      I was wondering the same thing. I may go to my local print shop for my STDs
