Image Uploaded for Printing
I had to play around with and re-uploaded my images to get graphics inside the "Vistaprint safe zone" denoted by a dotted line on uploaded image.  This was after I had already prepared document to specifications of  1062x615 pixels and a cut size of 1028x579 pixels.  Other than this inconsistency, the process was easy.

250 cards is about $25 shipped.
1000 cards is about $36 shipped.

This included these "extras":
