    I just received my two tone canvas tote bags from Vistaprint.  The design came out as expected but the bag was of inferior quality.  I found it poorly constructed (stiching is incomplete and messy) and am worried that they would fall apart.  I knew they would be cheap but I didn't think they would be bad.  They were cheap for customized bag but I rather go for the non-personalized bags of higher quality and lower price.

      I would like to hear where other brides found their bags?  And did you do nylon/polyester or canvas?

      We bought ours on cheaptotes.com


      We just went with canvas ones, but I am really pleased with the quality of them for the cheap price.

        I would send an email to Vistaprint complaining about the stitching. They may fix it! I emailed them about something before and they refunded me within an hour of me sending the email

            I bought my totes through Vista, but i subscribed to their emails first and waited till there was a sale and i got all of them for free!! I may have been a bit dodgy, it was a "get one free" promotion so i just ordered one at a time, it took a while but it was worth it! I just had to pay for postage so cost me $5 each bag - Bargain!!

                Sorry, you had a bad experience. I really liked the totes I got from Vistaprint.

                  I too had a bad 2 tone tote experience.  I uploaded a design and then used their editing tool to add RED wording - Well They arrived orange.  I called to complain b/c the artwork was clearly red and red on the sticker that was on the outside of the bag.  Well they offered to reprint at no charge.  I got the 2nd shipment - same thing. Called again - and the csr told me they are aware of this problem it happens all the time - the red color comes out a burnt orange because of the drying process on the canvas - ok so if they are aware of this why offer customer a red option.  He offered to play with the colors and reprint...needless to say after 5 times of reprinting it came the last one came out a dark burnt orange. When i called they pretty much told me there was nothing they could do but refund me. Here is the best part - They refunded me the money I paid on my cc - (i think it was like $15) but I also used a $70 Groupon toweard this order.  I asked if I would just get a $70 merchandise credit towards another order - they told me know i loose it. 


                  Needless to say, I am not very happy with VIstaprint at all!
