I ordered mine from Weddingpaperdivas. Have you tried looking at minted.com?

My friend did that. They just took a photo from their engagement shoot, opened it up in paint and designed all the wording with free fonts and stuff they found online (dafont.com or something i think).

@msmeow24:  I did – got them printed at Lens & Shutter, though the image design is very simple. I used Coneria Script (from dafont.com) and Photoshop.

I did ours on Zazzle.com  – super simple, just used one of their redwood tree photos as a background for round magnets and just put our names and date etc on it 🙂

I did! Mine are postcard style and just went to local print shop for high gloss 14pt paper to print on.

@_Adelaide_:  These are amazing! Do you mind sharing how much they ended up costing? The foldover-cutout style is so cute!

We are DIYing a lot. FI is a graphic designer, so we designed ours together, and had them printed locally as postcards. We are sending them out this week and I’m so excited! We are going to use the upside down skyline throughout our design stuff, and it’s the background of our website. It was $75 after tax to have the nice heavy 16 point matte coated stock. I love them!

@FutureMrsHarris2014:  thanks!

@krebhamp: I can’t completely remember how much I paid for everything, but here’s my best guess:

 

cardstock (Recollections kraft paper, at 40% off): $4.20 for 50 sheets

envelopes (recollections card/envelope kits, at 40% off): $6 for 50

photos ($1.50/each + tax, 5 x 7, from Lens & Shutter): $59 for 35

stamps (regular size stamps, Canada Post): $0.62 per stamp

 

So if you break it down like that, they were $2.65 each.

If you don’t have the cut-out machine (Silhouette Cameo), those are around $250-$300, but you might be able to find a local scrapbook store that has one that you could use.

I don’t have them completely done yet, but I’m making and printing them myself. I also ordered scratch off heart stickers and each STD is going to have 3 stickers–the date, the day, and the year!
