    Hi-
    I was going to place an order for biz cards but was wondering if anyone has purchased more promo stuff and how they like it? Besides the cards I dont' know what else I need? Maybe the wedding registry cards so when I possibly do 1-3 showers this spring I will already have them handy and avoid a 2nd shipping charge!

    Anything else to rave about, gotta have stuff from Merrill? Please share! :rolleyes:

  2. I ordered some business cards and the black tote bag last Monday, but I haven't received it yet. I hope to get it soon. If I do, I'll let you know right away what I think. The stuff on the website looks just great so I'm excited to get it!
     
  3. I made my own business cards, I think they look just as good as Merrill's, and for alot cheaper! :) I change out the picture on the card to suit my needs... I just use the pictures off the website assistant files.

    Since I do alot of daytime playgroup "Kids in the Kitchen" shows, I give ones with the kids cookie cutters out to moms and to playgroups, etc.
    The Cookware ones are what I use normally. :D

    Here's the template if you'd like to use it... you'll need to replace your own info, of course! I use Avery Ink Jet White Linen business cards (pack of 200 cards for like... $13 at Staples)
     
  4. bleh it wont upload the file for some reason... hm. :confused: :eek:

    Merrill Business Cards

    I ordered and received the new Bridal Registry cards and new business cards.
    Love the looks of both of them.

    If you need cards, I suggest you order them right away. It took them about 3 weeks to get my cards.

    Merrill

    The only downside for me with Merrill is the shipping time. I ordered as soon as I got back from Leadership conference and I still haven't gotten my stuff. :mad: I didn't even order anything that had to be personalized.

    I love those flyers that we can leave at businesses where someone can tear off a full business sized card of information. I think those look awesome. I like the business cards with our picture on them. Those look very nice. I'll have to remember to dress swanky at least one day at Nat'l Conference so I can have my picture taken. I will have just had baby #4 and I hope my face won't still be all swollen--LOL! :p

  7. I just picked up my mail and business cards were there. They are BEAUTIFUL! Totally worth the $. I had tried to make my own and that went ok for awhile, but every once in a while, my printer would go offline and I'd spend hours trying to fix the card template again. This is so much easier!

    thanks!

    I tried making my own but my computer did not like the card stock. I will buy the new ones since they look really good! I will go ahead and get registry cards too. Thanks for the input!

    I bought the basic business cards with the images of PC products and they are nice quality. I would have prefered to be able to change the font for my information, but for 29 bucks with shipping for 500 of them, it seems like a fair deal for a color card.

    They certainly will do the job!

    I got my bus cards and I got the bus card flyers and I really like those, but there template is off on those so you actually have to flip the template upside down after you put your info in and then it will fit on the flyers correctly, if you order any do practice on a blank piece of paper and hold it up because you will not be happy if it prints wrong

  11. I also agree that their shipping time is quite long. I ordered several items, both personalized and non-personalized at the beginning of January. I actually received the personalized items first but am still waiting for the bulk of my order. Hopefully, this is just a start-up glitch and their shipping times will improve in the future. I have ordered things from both Nancy's Artwork and VIP and received those items within a week.
