There is not a lot of difference between Print Pelican and uPrinting, they both sell good quality products and there is not a lot of difference in proce, although Print Pelican do seem to offermore discounts and they offer free shipping on all products.
iPrint also produces quality products but you have to pay for things you do not have to pay for on the other two sites, like uv coating, and you pay extra to have the back as well as the front of the business cards.
Where iPrint does succeed over the other two is for their promotional material like T-shirts, mugs, puzzles, mouse mats. All three companies have something good to offer so it is worth checking out all three sites.
