How long does “free shipping” take?

Their free shipping is usually at “economy” speed, which takes about 8 business days.

A word about shipping speeds:

I have personally used their “free” or “economy” speed shipping several times and it has never taken more than 6 business days, but the shipping time depends on your location.

Also, I think Vistaprint would rather you be pleasantly surprised at getting your order a day or two early than have customer service answer thousands of complaints that their orders were late!


Vistaprint Free Shipping Promotions:

Finding the best coupon for your unique order might involve comparing coupons, but here are the promotions usually available from Vistaprint that include free delivery:


free delivery business cards

I Love the Smell of Free Shipping in the Morning!

logo vistaprintIf you’re an entrepreneur or small business owner you’ve no doubt used, or at least heard of Vistaprint. They have made a name for themselves catering to millions of Americans (and Vistaprint Canada!) who are looking for a lean and mean way to have marketing materials printed.

So, If you’re on a tight budget, you’ll surely welcome the idea of having your printed materials shipped for free, in addition to any discount that you may be getting. Here are your best two options for getting your order shipped free from Vistaprint, (also listed above) but beware that they are shipped at 8-day “economy” speed.

New Customer Promotion: 20% Discount + Free Shipping on $50+ Orders

speedy delivery

8-day economy shipping? Not so speedy!

Online retailers covet new customers. In fact, they are willing to take a loss in the short term if it means a long term source of revenue.

This is really the idea behind cheap printers and razors for shaving. Companies are willing to sell you these items for less than they cost to produce because your value as a repeat customer is much larger. Using printers as an example, you probably will spend several times more on replacement ink over the years than you paid for the printer.

This is also why Vistaprint reserves their best promotions for first-time customers. In fact, they have an ongoing promotion for 20% off plus free shipping with code: FIRSTORDER (no relation to the evil First Order from Star Wars!) with the goal of acquiring new customers. After your first positive experience, they hope you’ll place many more orders in the future.

Free Shipping for Existing Customers?

Free shipping for existing customers is rare, so, if you have a Vistaprint account, you won’t be eligible for most free shipping promotions. However, if getting free delivery from Vistaprint is your highest priority, you still might be in luck.

As I write this there is a rare promo code (with an expiration at the end of the month) that gives existing customers free economy shipping on orders with a $50 minimum. Click here for the latest promo code.

You’ll definitely want to compare your order total from this code against at least one other, as you might find that this week’s deals ultimately get you a better price.

vistaprint free delivery

Is free shipping with no minimum order available? 

No, free delivery with no minimum order is usually not available. Back in the days when Vistaprint offered free business cards, they also had an occasional deal for free shipping with no minimum, but I haven’t seen it in ages. Usually the minimum order has to exceed $50 to ship free.

Remember, free delivery might not be the best discount

Before placing any order at vistaprint.com, compare at least a couple of different promotions, as the extra minute of due diligence might save you a few dollars or more at checkout!

Vistaprint: Free Sample Kit – Business Cards, Postcards, Brochure

vistaprint coupon logo blueFree stuff from Vistaprint for your business – If you’re a small business considering printing marketing materials,it might help to get samples in your hands before putting together an order. In fact, a number of online printing services offer free samples, including Vistaprint.


*Note: These samples can’t be customized, as they are intended to demonstrate sizes, print quality, and paper stocks so that you make a better informed decision about future orders.

More About their Free Stuff for Businesses

The most helpful thing about the marketing materials from Vistaprint is that on the back of each item you’ll see the paper stock and printing options including paper weight and finish like this:

vistaprint free postcard samples

So, They Replaced Their Free Business Cards Offer?

You might remember seeing Vistaprint’s famous offers for free business cards and other free stuff. Basically, you’d have to pay for shipping, and they would try to up-sell you on a number of items before you could checkout, and it was annoying.

They’ve decided it makes more sense to try to get ongoing customers who have a myriad of marketing needs like postcards & brochures, so this free sample kit for small businesses is a better solution. Also, unlike the previous offers it includes free shipping!

Here’s what the free sample business cards look like:

vistaprint_free business card samples

New: Vistaprint 500 business cards for $9.99 or 100 economy business cards for $1.99 + shipping.

Free Postcards? I’m Interested!

The “10 free postcards” promotion is also extinct, (here’s their current coupon for postcards) but with this kit you get postcards of various sizes and finishes. In my free sample kit I got 5 postcards in various sizes, paper stock, and finishes. (see above)

Q: Can we mail these awesome free postcards to friends and family?
A: No, please don’t. That would be sad.

If you are ready to buy postcards, check out today’s coupon for postcards from Vistaprint

What Does Their Free Sample Kit Include?

Free stuff?! Each business sample kit includes the following items printed with various paper stocks and finishes including:

  • 8 double-sided business cards (various paper stock, finish)
  • 4 standard postcards (glossy / matte finish)
  • 1 over-sized postcard
  • 1 free brochure
  • 20% off coupon

How Long Do the Free Samples Take to Deliver?

When you request free samples, Vistaprint tells you that you should get them in two weeks. Personally, I got mine delivered in exactly 6 business days!

Simple Canvas Prints: Use a Coupon to Crush Shutterfly’s Pricing

So, how do you compete with a big photo-sharing like Shutterfly? Well, it’s intimidating to think of going head to head with Shutterfly, but I really like how Simple Canvas Prints is doing it. They’ve picked a niche, printing on canvas, and are really great at. Then they beat Shutterfly’s pricing, include free shipping, a great user experience, and ask people to tell their friends about it.

I can only assume that printing canvas at these prices actually loses money, but the corresponding word-of-mouth and online buzz probably ends up being worth the cost. So, without further ado, here’s a review of my experience with SimpleCanvasPrints.com

My Review of Simple Canvas Prints: A Gorgeous, Cheap Canvas Print

simple canvas print

my canvas – instagram photo

When you have a custom-printing blog, one of the perks is getting free samples or exclusive discounts. In this case I was offered 2 coupons to pass on to others through my site. (see above) So, before endorsing their company, it was important that I become a customer.

Simple Ordering Process: I Felt Like I Was at Chipotle

It’s not everyday that a company that prints canvas gets compared to a taco restaurant, but in this case it’s a big complement. The brilliance of Chipotle in their minimalism; they’ve created a great product, and simplified the ordering experience. When I go to a diner or The Cheescake Factory I just about have a panic attack looking at the 20-page menu, so this is right up my alley.

Here are the notable steps of my canvas order / coupon use:

  • Choose a photo from your computer, facebook, or instagram
  • Choose a canvas size and border: either gallery wrap, white, or black (which I chose)
  • Add a sepia or black & white filter if you’d like
  • Does your photo need retouching? No problem, they can help you for as little as $4
  • Choose shipping method: Priority is only about $3, or choose ground shipping for free
  • Enter your billing details (no coupon codes) and submit your order

That’s it; my 12×12 canvas cost me only $24 including shipping. (used the coupon above) I timed it, and the whole minimalist process lasted 7 minutes, which is about as much time as it takes me to check my Facebook page.

But, oops! I accidentally used a low resolution version of my Instagram photo. Dang it! So, I clicked back to their homepage and clicked on the “chat” button. I immediately got a “canvas guru’s” attention, and after explaining the issue in 2 sentences, he asked for my order #, and gave me an email address to send the correct image to.

Done. Designed and ordered a canvas print in a total of 9 minutes, accounting for my error. I chose the “free shipping,” method, and the canvas arrived in 5 days. Nice! Here’s what my canvas looks like:

Everyone Seems to give Simple Canvas Prints a Positive Review

simple canvas prints logo“Stunning enlargement of a digital photo and amazing workmanship! Very courteous and professional company…” Excerpt of a recent simplecanvasprints.com review

I’m always skeptical about reading reviews on sites that I’ve never heard of. You should be too, as it’s usually someone schilling a product that they ultimately are getting paid to review. So, I encourage you to check out the reviews for Simple Canvas Printing on resellerratings.com; as of today, I can’t find a bad review amongst the 100 or so on the site.

You get a coupon; your loved-one gets a beautiful canvas!

Don’t call me cheap, but I hate paying retail price for anything. So, a huge determining factor in many of my online purchasing decisions ends up being based on comparing coupons. If you’ve found this page, I assure you you won’t find a better deal online for printing photos on canvas, and you don’t even need to enter a promo code.

So, for the price of a cheap bouquet from Proflowers or a discount bottle from wine.com. I’m ordering a gift that won’t wilt or be passed through someone’s kidneys; a beautiful gallery-quality canvas that we’ll treasure for years. Try them out yourself, and use our exclusive coupon above for a great deal! – Missy
