PROS / PrintRunner's online design tool supports a variety of file formats. You can upload an existing design or create your own design.
CONS / You pay extra to use the service's stock images.
VERDICT / PrintRunner's design tools and assortment of finishes help you create a professional business card.
Between the easy-to-use design tool and the selection of specialty cards, PrintRunner serves as a good option for business card printing services. The clarity of the images and the feel of the cardstock PrintRunner uses is good quality, whether you print black and white, full-color, cards with bleeding edges or double-sided cards.
You can choose from either matte or gloss finish. Though PrintRunner doesn't have UV spot finishing, it does have foil stamping to give a little more emphasis to text or images on your card. We found, though, that the quality of its business cards, though minimal, lagged behind our top-rated services. If you want to stand out from the crowd, PrintRunner has some basic specialty shaped cards and magnet cards. This helps your clients keep track of your contact information more easily.
PrintRunner has a design tool that lets you design and upload your business cards online. It has some pre-designed business card templates and stock photos; however, you have to purchase them in order to use them. The best business card services offer templates and stock images for free. PrintRunner does have graphic designers available if you'd rather have your custom business cards professionally designed.
If you need to speak with a customer service representative, PrintRunner has both telephone and email support available. A live-chat feature is also available, but it can be hit and miss with its availability depending on the time of day. Still, when we requested samples through the PrintRunner website, we received them within a week.
One benefit of purchasing business cards through PrintRunner is the ability to order additional products. Besides business cards, PrintRunner can help you design and print brochures and flyers, including door hangers. Promotional calendars, banners and signs can also be printed. You can even have your company information and logo printed on envelopes.
PrintRunner has several tools to help you create and print your own business cards. It can also print other items, like flyers and door hangers, for your business. The quality of the images and cardstock can easily be felt and seen. If you're looking for something more unique than the traditional business card, PrintRunner can help your company stand out using a specialty shaped card or magnetic business card.
