Advantages: Good quality, very customisable, good prices
Disadvantages: Defaults are low quality, and oh the spam!
I got married last February, and it was all very lovely. But since we wanted to use our budget wisely we decided to go for inexpensive invitations and so went with Vistaprint.
Their interface is very easy, and they had upwards of 100 invitation templates we could choose from, or we could have uploaded our own design. We went with a subdued little card and were able to customise it to a surprising degree: we removed the Vistaprint logo from the back of the cards, we upgraded the cardstock and the envelopes to nicer quality ones, we had a really nice deep gold ink and were able to choose the typeface we wanted on the inside.
All this took us in total a little under an hour, and then we were able to add matching thank you cards and RSVP cards (both came with their own matching envelopes too) and got some free address labels as well!
Total cost for invitations (daytime and evening), RSVP cards and thank you cards plus address labels and express shipping was £68. They arrived in four days and the cards were perfect. The address labels, however, had been smudged in printing and were not good at all, but because they were free we didn't mind.
I recently ordered my business cards from them too, didn't bother with express shipping and they turned up in ten days. They're very nice, my only problem is that the non-upgraded cardstock could be much better quality.
Still, though, my only problem with Vistaprint is their constant stream of emails. I get about 5-6 emails a week from them, and no matter how often I mark them as spam still they make their way into my inbox. I recommend setting up a free email account and using that for your Vistaprint order, really I do, but I can't fault the products.
Summary: Good if you're careful what you specify but beware the incessant emails.
