NO!

Type in 100 FREE VISTAPRINT Postcards and they will give you 100 free(you pay for shipping)

PS. Sign out of your account before doing this search on Google. I've done it and love Vistaprint.

NO NO I understand they will send them to you for only postage... but they will now mail them to customers for a price.

If you can get the cards for free, then it seems pointless to pay them to address and stamp them. The postage on 100 is $27. So for $9 more you could stamp yourself and reach twice the amount of people.

100 direct mailers is not enough. I truly feel that the old days of a 1-2% response is long gone. I personally think you should expect a .5% (if you get more... great) so with 100 mailers you'll get 1/2 a customer. Spend the extra 9 bucks... mail out 200... and get a whole customer!! hahaha

You said you can get 100 cards free form vista print, have someone else order the second set for you.

If they charge $45 per 100 to mail them...

you should get...
100 FREE cards (that you order)
100 FREE cards (that you have someone else order for you)
200 stamps is $54.00

You will then mail 200 cards for $9 more that vistaprint will charge you for 100

get it??
