As I get ready to complete my Etsy store I want to print some business cards.  I was thinking to use Vistaprint until I found 

They use both sides are a great quality etc..

I think my card should be the same as my shop banner.  Can others tell me what they have done for their business cards?

All recommendations and advice  will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

I Merrie, Great that you are getting closer to being ready. Sorry, I can't help you with business card advice other than to say I find many business cards to be so "busy" that it's hard to read the important things. I'm strictly low tech with printing my own and rubber stamping them with two colorful rubberstamps. Fortunately it fits into the whimsical shop theme I've got going. Hope you find the perfect design.

Thanks for the quick response.  I need over 100 cards I just got into two stores and I want to put a card with all my items and another card with care instructions so I have to have them printed. Plus my online (soon I hope) and friends etc.  I find it a good marketing tool.   I did however find a place that looks good that has two sided cards so I might be able to get away with one card not sure yet.

I love the moo cards but the price was a sticking point for me after the promotional pricing and since I have a good printer and know-how, I made my own business cards and thank you cards (similar to my business card but what I use for packages on Etsy usually, instead)

That said, this year I'm getting them printed elsewhere since I can now afford it. And I did my own designs but Vista Print is printing them along with my banners / posters. Upgrading it all this year.

For the shops I'm in, I have a hang card that is a one colour design (much cheaper to print in bulk). Again, I made these myself but you can find good versions on zazzle, vista print, etc.

Don't forget to include the cost of your packaging (cards, envelopes, etc) either into your item or shipping prices when you're figuring out your prices. I didn't include it ALL the first year on Etsy and it set me back hard.

Seemed like a good idea for a blog post, especially since I have been woefully bad about blogging!

EDITED: Merrie, I just saw from your response at Lynn's blog that you've already seen the post. Think I'll leave the this up in case someone else might be interested.

I thought I'd post the following interesting info that Lynn of Desert Rubble just posted on her blog:
