Why I Will Never Buy From Uprinting

I recently won two giveaways from Uprinting- I won a banner and 500 business cards.

Both times the prize came with a rather short deadline for ordering. I wasn't able to order my banner because I was on vacation and wanted to use pictures I had saved on CDs. And so the deadline to order (not claim, order) the banner passsed.

And now I'm trying to order the business cards. First, you have to upload your own design. When I won postcards from Vistaprint they were very generous and let me choose two of their designs to use.

Now, that I have designed my own cards there have been technical problems with my proofs which caused me to recieve several emails from several different represntatives each requesting me to do another thing. And none of them knew anything about me being contacted by someone else.

The proof  issue has been resolved but now they are trying to charge me for the business cards. The computer generate message I keep getting tells me  that the coupon code they gave me has expired- even thought the deadline is not for another 10 or so days. I've sent one more email and if its not resolved at that, I am to the point where I don't care anymore.

Because of this experience I will never buy from Uprinting and will never have a Uprinting giveaway on my blog.  Before I  won the giveaway I never considered Uprinting a suitable alternative to Vistaprint because there prices are so much higher. Now that I have worked with Uprinting I now KNOW that the are not worth my business.


  1. Thanks for the heads up. I have never heard of Uprinting, but LOVE Vista Print..they are so easy and I have never had any problems with them.

  2. Yikes! I have been very happy w/ VP so no incentive to change.

  3. ugh that stinks, hopefully it all works but i will definitely keep that in mind for future orders.

  4. hi there! i belong to the lady bloggers society and wanted to say i enjoyed your blog. i am just getting started with blogging and hope you get a chance to check mine out and become a follower. thanks for the great tips, maggie

  5. I won some biz cards from UPrinting, too, and had a really hard time getting my order sorted out. Fortunately, I had a little better luck getting it taken care of, but it did take me calling them a couple of times and finally they had to have someone from their marketing department go in and do something to the system. Hope it is able to get sorted out soon!!
