GotPrint Review

Businesses are going mostly paperless these days, but one kind of printed material that remains in style is the classic business card. Even business cards are changing with the times, however, as several services now offer DIY card design and printing. GotPrint offers custom online business card printing and a good web-based card-designing tool, along with unique card shapes (leaf-shapes cards, anyone?). The company boasts the lowest entry price point among similar services we’ve tested, so it’s worth your consideration.

Pricing Your Business Cards

GotPrint is the least-expensive card-printing service I’ve tested, starting at just $7.63 for a 100-card job. Only PSPrint comes close, starting at $8.06 for 50 cards on glossy C1S 14-point stock. (For a good explanation of cardstock weights, read GotPrint’s explanation, Which Paper Stock is Best For You?) If you buy 500 cards from GotPrint, your per-card cost is less than 2 cents! That compares with 4 cents for Vistaprint, 3.3 cents at PSPrint, and 3 cents at Staples. MOO oddly offers batches of 400 and 600, which cost a much higher 35 cents and 25 cents per card, respectively. If you opt for one of the sportier shapes, such as square or leaf, GotPrint’s price goes up drastically: The leaf shape starts at $27.95 for an order of 100 cards. Premium cardstock also starts at $27.95 and goes up from there.

GotPrint’s Other Services

In addition to business cards, GotPrint can print pretty much every type of paper product you can think of: greeting cards, banners, brochures, calendars, catalogs, flyers, folders, and stickers, among them. The company recently started offering pre-designed COVID-19-related signs for businesses, to help them comply with social distancing rules. Partaking in a popular shelter-in-place activity, I recently decided to order a puzzle from one of my travel photos; you can get a 550-piece puzzle for around $30, but be aware that your photo must meet stringent resolution requirements.

Price and Options

GotPrint does large print runs, but the prices are so reasonable that it’s worth ordering more than you expect to need. For instance, our double-sided 4 x 6-inch postcards cost only 26.4 cents each for 100 cards. By comparison, Mixbook charges $1.15 per card for an order of 100 cards.If you get 500 cards from GotPrint, they cost 9.4 cents each.

GotPrint offers a wide selection of postcard sizes, from the standard 4 x 6 inches and 5 x 7 inches up to 3.5 x 8 inches and even as large as 9 x 12 inches. It also offers a long list of other photo products, such as business cards, brochures, booklets, collector cards, event tickets, flyers, mini menus, stickers and banners.

Bottom Line

GotPrint is targeted more to business and marketing customers than to consumers looking to create photo projects. In other words, if you’re not familiar with photo-printing services, or you want to have fun designing your postcard, use Mixbook. However, GotPrint delivers a high-quality postcard at a great price.
