We are getting our STDs created by someone on Etsy, but she doesn’t do printing. What are everyone’s suggestions for the best place to print custom Save the Dates? Any suggestions on paper types would be helpful, too!

I’d check somewhere like Vistaprint, they’ve always turned out wonderfully for me when I go through them! If you want something more “formal,” I had my thermography wedding invitation suite (I designed it on my own, I just sent it to her to have printed) printed by Little Ladybug Press on Etsy, she was super easy to work with and I love how they turned out!

I used Cards and Pockets…. They have a custom print shop and both the service and the final result were excellent.

I actually used Walgreens. I was going to go with a nice online printer like VistaPrint or Wedding Paper Divas but then realized its just a save the date vs the actual invitation and people would probably throw them away anyway. I actually “splurged” on the nicer matte paper and ended up paying (with coupon) $4.60 for 100 STDs and they came out really nice. I’m still getting compliments on them 🙂

We did postcards from Vistaprint (a photo on front and plain back) — the paper was nice and thick and they were very affordable (about $20 for 100 of them). We also had good experiences with Catprint, and they have a variety of nice paper types. Another nice thing about Catprint is they can send you a paper proof so you can see how it looks before printing a whole run.

annb9: I used a ETSY shop for my STD and printed them with Vistasprint. I found a coupon and got 250 Postcards for $10, I only needed 150 but it was way cheaper to print 250 than it was to order 50 and 100.

I used wedding paper divas for my STD magnets. I used them when they were having a 20% off sale. I think they have sales often. Anyway, cute design, super easy. I ordered mine on a Monday and they arrived that Friday! I had great experience with them.

We just printed our save the dates on photo paper at Meijer. The quality was fine (just like a photo!) and the price was GREAT!
We also designed our own invitation suite and had those printed at FedEx/Kinkos. You can go in and pick out the paper you like, and they’ll print you a sample to approve before executing the whole job. I was really happy with the quality and the price.
