I had just gotten the proof from Springcart for the design of my new cards. No, not these cards. This new set of cards is for my relationship geared non-profit organization. On one side it has the non-profit logo and the other side has my relationship book and my contact information. I was just tweeting gleefully about how pleased I was with the sneak peek I’d gotten on Twitter about how I had to graduate from Vistaprint and out of nowwhere Vistaprint end up responding to me. I didn’t even think that maybe they do a “Vistaprint” word search on Twitter to find out what’s being said about their company, but they must because I didn’t even put the @ before the Vistaprint and they discovered my comment.
Here is what I said:
@Springcart is working on my new cards for my non-profit and the sneak peek was BOOM POW! I had to give Vistaprint the boot. I need quality!
Here is what they said:
Here is my response:
@Vistaprint Nothing was wrong with my last order. I just needed a better quality design and more cards for the price and @Springcart offers me that. For some reason people can tell you have @Vistaprint cards. I don’t like that.
I thought that would settle it and that I’d be able to go on my merry way, but noooooooo! That would be too easy.
Then they popped up again and made another comment:
@MissPrincessDom Did you know that we have 100s of templates and you can always upload your own design
I responded back rather nicely I think:
@Vistaprint Thank you. Yes, I know I can upload my own design, but who creates the design? @Springcart does it all for me in one shot. Especially since I’m not a graphic artist/designer. It’s just easier for me that way. And I actually did sit and go through the templates one day. Some were very nice, but not exactly what I wanted.
Finally they said:
I don’t knock anybody who MUST use Vistaprint. They have lots of nice designs, but I know me, I’m very particular and I wanted something exactly the way I wanted, on sturdy quality paper and Springcart delivered that. This is my second set of cards from them and I don’t anticipate going anywhere else–ever! I’m sorry if that rubs the minions at Vistaprint the wrong way, but this is a free country.
