13 Best Places To Get Business Cards For Your Pet Sitting Business

pet-sitter-business-cardAt times, your pet sitting business card will be the first impression a potential client has with you.

It’s vital to your continued success that your card not only communicate your contact details but, more importantly, motivates that person to take action and get in touch with you.

If you find yourself handing out business cards – or leaving them on counters – with very few people following up, it may be time to reconsider your business card approach.

To increase your chances of contact being made, ask yourself if your business card is professional, unique and stands out.


Does it shout, “I can take care of your pet and do the best job possible?” Does it enhance your credibility?

I know plenty of pet sitters who use Vistaprint as their go-to online printer for free business cards. I believe the price you pay for those free cards do more harm than good for the ultimate success of your business, which is one reason it’s left off the list.

Plus, you can usually get a big stack of professional looking cards for $10 – $20 dollars.

No matter what you choose, consider any of these 13 reputable online printers for your business card (and other promotional items) needs. I point out what makes each special or unique, along with the general price of their business cards.

    Thanks for the excellent article.  I agree with your opinion about VistaPrint, plus I’ve heard mixed reviews about their customer service.  My printing site recommends Printplace, Uprinting, and PsPrint, along with the reasons why I believe them to be strong companies.  I’ve also heard positive things about PrintingForLess; their website is a bit outdated and drab, but they do provide a lot of good information.  Business cards are important to your company’s band image, so make sure you select your printing service with care.

    wow. interesting you don’t have vistaprint on here. i’ve used them for a lot of things (though not my official biz card this go around). 

    • Joshua Cary

      Hi Monica,

      I have personally found Vista Print products to be a bit sub-par for business cards.  I have also experienced issues in their billing practices.

  • Jade

    Thanks Josh for the tip about overnight prints! I’m in Australia and so far they’re the cheapest with the best cards. I’ve done a lot of research into Australian companies and haven’t found anything as good. They don’t advertise it much on their site, but they ship to Australia. Woo hoo!
