Adobe Illustrator CS5
I'm redesigning my business card so everything matches (blog, portfolio, Etsy, business card, etc) I've tried getting cards printed at both VistaPrint and OvernightPrints, but have found (while extremely cheap) they both have issues.
VistaPrint's paper quality is fairly good for their cheap prices (you can even get free business cards if you don't mind their logo printed on the back) but when you're checking out they hit you with page after page of ads; asking if you'd like to buy this, or this or hey maybe THIS!?
Overnight Prints paper quality is comparable to VistaPrint's, but on my first order with them, the borders were cut crooked and I had to send them back. I had to contact them twice asking for them to be resent and it took a couple weeks before I got my second order. (To their credit, they did not make me pay for the second order or the shipping, though).
This time I'm going to try MOO, recommended by a fellow illustrator I worked with a couple months ago. The business cards he ordered were made from extremely thick paper, and very smooth to the touch. MOO is much more expensive than the other two companies, but I think this is one of those products where you get what you pay for.
