    Can anyone recommend a good printing company for business cards in the US for $15-20? I've tried Vistaprint.com and Overnightprints.com, but have not liked either so far.

    Vistaprint was something my friend recommended. The price was cheap, but their cards are light as heck. No finish either. Looks like it could've been printed on a decent desktop printer. But most company cards have this lightweight style.

    Overnightprints is something I decided to try after getting their free sample kit. Their samples were great and all their samples had a default satin matte finish, which was great. My order was not the same as their samples though. The card was a bit thicker/harder than their sample, I could see shoddy cut lines on the back, and some faint green ink spilled over onto the edges on the front side (which is white) because of the image on the back. The image on the back came out nicely though. Complaint was sent. I'll see what they say. I'm hoping they'll do a reprint because these cards are basically ruined.

    Since I offer varying services to completely different service sectors and I think its kinda cheesy when I see a business card that actually list more than 3 things, much less things from different service categories ( sometimes completely unrelated )...

    I opt to print my own, a little more expensive, but since I probably don't give out that many ( compared to years ago ), it just makes more sense for me.

    I prefer the heavier stock cards as well, found blanks at my local Office Depot.

    Also, if you're planning on going the QR code route ( which I highly recommend these days ), printing your own, allows you to put different tracking QR codes on the cards, so you can measure responses...

    4over.com -although it's a trade only printer. You will have to send them an application but they are very good priced.
    They are however an online printer and I have seen color differences from set to set, so if you are very picky, you will have to go to a printer like modern postcard or similar but you will be paying a lot more..

    I like moo.com They're a little more expensive than Vistaprint but the cards are way nicer, and you can get a different image on every card. They do QR codes, and there's a choice of either sustainably sourced, matte laminated paper, a rich gloss finish or 100% recycled paper - I chose the recycled paper and was very pleased with what I got. They offer a free 10-card sample pack - you can use your own images or choose from hundreds that they offer.
