They do send free offers but the offers only apply to the person who has been sent the email ( usually its to someone who has used VistaPrint before and has signed up to receive special deals) so won't work for others.

It might say "free" but they get you with their postage rates.

Slow: 21 Days - $10.90      
Standard: 14 Days - $17.20      
Priority: 9 Days - $18.67

I was going to warn you about postage costs as well.  I don't use Vistaprint at all as their postage is excessive.

The shipping costs are high, and there's also a $7.99 "photo upload fee" to get your photos uploaded onto the site to use on the calendar, and there's also an extra small optional charge for glossy paper and colour grid (around the bottom of the calendar). Having said that, I ordered some of these when they were on special at 3 for $26.99, and also ordered 2 of the desk calendars. All up including (slowest) postage it was $80 for the lot, but I must say, they arrived in 2 weeks, despite saying 21 days, and they are great! Such good quality and perfect Christmas present for DH's mum who lives interstate. I have ordered a few things from this place before and never been disappointed with the quality.

I have always ordered through vistaprint and taken advantage of other free offers which have made postage more than worthwhile.

If  you sign up for their emails they will send them daily (easy to unsubscribe) and you can get really great deals including free uploads.

I have always been really happy with their calendars but this year I was really disappointed. In the past I have always got the standard paper option and they have been on card. This year they were on glossy paper. This means that when I write on the calendar the imprint goes through to the other side.  I have also used some of the photos in frames in the past and cant do this if there is the imprint.

I rang and complained and they sent me another but it is on the same paper.

Am disappointed as for the past 2 yrs I have been really happy and have gotten great bargains by including a range of free things that I can use (eg made birthday cards, xmas cards, address stamper, note book etc)

Yep they get you on the postage and the cost to upload photos ($8 per pic!). DH used to work for Fuji and Rabbit Photo and couldnt believe they charged for that.
