Has anyone used VistaPrint's templates to set up their website?

You can read about them

No, I have never used their templates for a website. I would go with a Wordpress blog platform instead, personally. However, one thing I love about VistaPrint is their free offers. I get all my flyers, postcards, and bookmarks for only the cost of shipping! Can't beat that!

Thanks, flashgordon! I'm still investigating options. Can you tell me why you prefer a Wordpress blog platform?

And I have a question about VistaPrint postcards: is it difficult to create both front and back? I'd like my bookcover on the front of the card, and on the back some info about the book and how to order it.

Nandi, it's really easy to do front/back on their postcards. Everything's a template and pretty much spelled out for you. I've made them quite a few times and always been pleased with the results.

Vistaprint Sitebuilder is very easy to use. Obviously you're not going to get the best SEO with this type of site, but if you just need to get it started, it is worth it. I built a site in about 8 hours for a friend, it is at painministries.com. Not a great site, but he needed a quick site and business cards when he returned to this country and it was lightning fast. The sites organic traffic is actually decent but since he offers services, there are no sales conversions to track.

My only complaint is that I don't believe you can remove the "Powered by Vistaprint" at the bottom, although I do know that they offer custom built sites at reasonable rates, and they may remove that for a price.

Vistaprint started as a printer and expanded into a number of areas including websites hosting.

I don't think Vista Self-Publishing is too far away!
