Print24 Review – Our New Money Crashers Business Cards

By Gyutae Park

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Print24. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whether you run a small business or are employed by a major company, business cards are an absolute must. They allow people you come in contact with to easily find you after the initial meeting and reach you for potential partnerships, deals, and jobs. However, it’s up to you to make a good impression and make everyone want to follow up with you in the first place. Otherwise, you can always enter into those business card drawings for free lunches at the local sandwich shop. :)

Anyway, I recently had a chance to order some new Money Crashers business cards through Print24, a website offering printing services for things like business cards, flyers, and brochures. We didn’t have any business cards for the site previously, so this seemed like a perfect opportunity to try it out.

Below is a screen shot of what the Print24 website looks like. You’re given a variety of different options (through the use of pull-down menus) to create a custom print job that suits your needs. For example, you can select the product (e.g. business cards, stickers, calendars, etc), number of pages, format, paper type (e.g. glossy or dull), and colors. Not the easiest to navigate, but it gets the job done.

One of the main features of Print24 that makes it unique is FreeDesign, a tool that allows you to customize and create your own layout and design. There are quite a few design templates and options to choose from, so you should be able to come up with something unique. Here’s an example.

A word of warning – before you play around with your designs in FreeDesign, be sure to sign up for a Print24 account and log in. Apparently, you’re not able to save anything unless you’re logged in, and if you’ve already started, you’ll lose everything.

Alternatively, you’re also able to skip the design process entirely and upload an existing file (pdf, jpeg, of tiff) you have for printing. This is what we went with at Money Crashers and we got 1,000 business cards printed that look like this. I know it’s nothing out of the ordinary, but what do you think? You may even see one of these attached to your car windshield wiper sometime soon… just kidding. :)

Total cost for our order of 1,000 cards was around $15 with $6 shipping. Not bad at all. If you want to try it out, Print24 is offering 250 free business cards (plus shipping). That’s a great deal considering a lot of people don’t need more than 250 cards.

Overall Thoughts

Print24 seems like a good company to work with for your printing needs. Their website isn’t the best in the world and their order process can be a bit slow and clunky at times, but their customer service is pretty solid and the business cards themselves came in quickly and as ordered.

I think Print24 can benefit greatly by redesigning their site and optimizing their order process, but at least they are doing a good job with their printing.

    Vistaprint often offers specials like the one you mentioned (certain number free with shipping) and they also have numerous templates to choose from. I believe custom design costs more though.

    I used to use these lot quite a bit. They are cheap and the quality is fine…
    But that is it.

    I once had a problem with a print run and rang them. I needed to double my total run. Their guy on the phone told me that I need to make a new order now – even though it was less than 10 minutes after placing my order and the printing wasn’t due to start for 24 hours.

    …and that they’d recharge me the basic setup costs (Which were about £15 if I remember correctly).

    There was no give – and really, really quickly the guy cut me off with (and I quote) “if I don’t like it, I can take my business elsewhere. It’s not our problem.”

    So, I left a comment about “poor customer service” on their website.

    The same guy then rang me back – His very fisrt line was “I see you’ve been busy on our website.” and then continued to have a go at me down the phone for making a comment on their comments section which he didn’t agree with.

    Basically, avoid unless you really have no other choice.

    Really shocking service from Print24. These guys are very very cheap, but sadly in this case it means very very nasty! My latest batch of promo flyers are just unusable because of a massive printing error and the colour varies so much across the batch that the first flyer is almost a completely different flyer to the last one.

    Please do yourself a favour, spend the extra few pounds and print in the UK….

    Dreadful :(
