I have found it very easy to create my own business card, and document
design using Microsoft works.

I am a Mac user, I am not very good with graphic design.

I'm looking for something unique and Vista Print doesn't seem to have anything fitting my theme of "Stars & Stripes".

Do you have a budget we can make recommendations based on?

Cheaper the better to be honest, under $100 would be preferred, just looking for something basic.

You're looking for a logo, letterhead and business card design for $100? You will want to look into the bulk provider companies. They typically just add your name to one of their templates but it's a lot cheaper than a true custom design. Average cost of a simple logo design is $200

If you want anything close to custom, you're probably not going to find it for $100. That's along the lines of a customer calling you to see if you'll mow their lawn for $12.50/week. Google "cheap logo design" and you'll see a ton of offerings that range from clip-art to, supposedly, custom. Just be sure you receive vector artwork and you'll have something you can work with for any use.

Actually, A'Deas Printing can do custom designs if you order one of their products. Right now they've got a special for door hangers with a perforated business card attached (also has their state of the art Band-It and Stick-It features) for 1000 at the cost of $129 AND it comes with FREE design. Their in-house designer is remarkable however, if you prefer to design it yourself you can utilize their online design application. For more information visit their website at www.adeasprinting.com

Give Bob a call at plan-it graphics. I have tried all the companies they are speaking of on here and I was dissatisfied until I spoke with Bob. It was a little more than I intended to spend but his work transformed my company image. He is a one stop shop for all your advertising needs. It was the best business decision I have made. Call him and ask questions, it can't hurt. Check out his website for examples of his work too.
