->> Dave, Vistaprint usually has an option to use your own design.
Upload your own photo and go to town.

Not the cheapest but they're decent.

->> I have been happy with walmart.com's 5x7 cards (online only, not through stores from what I can tell).

The cards are under $1.50 each, no minimum or maximum order. For that price you can have something printed on the inside surfaces of the card, two lines of text on the back of the card, and a return address printed on the envelopes.

They also have 5.5" x 4.25" notecards, $11.86 per dozen with the same features (but no return address printing on the envelopes from what I can tell).

->> Oh I forgot to mention... the WM cards (printed by Fujifilm) do allow you to have your own photo on the front. And no shipping charges if you have the cards delivered to a store near you.

->> Never have been disappointed with my custom orders for cards on Mpix.com. They also offer metallic cards that really pop and stand out (wow cool factor is good w/these if you like that kind of stuff). Reasonable prices for the quality to boot.

->> A MUST-HAVE card service for PHOTOGRAPHERS: I use a service that allows its users to create a custom card online and the company will print, stuff, address, stamp and send to the recipient for $1.37 per card! No minimum order. You can also select any of the 18,000 stock cards and pay only $1.06/card. It's web-based, so you can send from anywhere. Add your photos or logos to the front or inside panels. It has a great contact manager and a calendar reminder system. The quality of the card is fantastic and my clients really enjoy getting them. Contact me for more info: JayGorodetzer@comcast.net I'm happy to tell you more.
