I used etsy for my save the dates and I loved them. The total cost was about $300 I think (that includes the duties to canada and shipping). I got so many compliments and they were so unique.

I also got my invites from there, and they are being shipped and should arrive next week. I’ll update once I get them to let you know.. but I think they will be amazing.

It was a great price for me! Saved me lots over going to a local printer. However, I had major problems with the vendor – see this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/etsy-dispute-please-help

With everything that I went through with the seller, if I had to do it all over again, I’d either DIY or go to a local person. I think the seller was able to duck and cover behind her computer screen when things didn’t go smoothly, wheras a real person standing in front of you is harder to ignore or brush off.

I think they are too expensive!!  I found some i really like but just couldnt bring myself to spend that much on paper.  I found one that I lreally liked and created my own invites and matching programs on Word then printed them out with Vista Print and staples, it saved us a ton they were unique I made them myself and we have gotten a ton of complements!!!!

I got my save the dates through etsy and they came out amazing. The seller was so quick with communication and willing to work with us, etc. There are definitely some great vendors on there.

We got our invitations on etsy and we got a really good deal! We ordered thru jessi pascarella from her kissin’ krafts shop. She was amazing to work with and the quality of her work was awesome. If you want to see pics of our invites or want more info feel free to private message me =)

I love my invitations from etsy.  I used Something Blue.  She’s been so awesome.  I’ve recommended her all over the place.

With her, she just designs the PDF then sends them to you so you can get them printed.  It takes out the worry of them being mailed to you.

If you’re looking for something kind of off beat, I suggest you check her out.

I had my invites/rsvp/info cards and some other signs done by one seller on Etsy. She emailed me all the high-res PDFs, and I printed them all out at Staples. The files alone cost me $50, and printing them at Staples cost about $150. I think it was well worth the price! I intend on contacting the same user for some other documents I want made up for the wedding!

@inkedbride:  This.  I’m in the middle of an intense “downloadable invitation template” search (haha) and have found lots and lots of reasonably priced templates for sale.  The printed invitations seem to be priced pretty high, but if you find a downloadable template that you like, you can buy them from like $25 and up.  Then print them at your local printer or even Vistaprint.

I think I paid a little over 200 total for printed invitations from etsy. With that, I got reception cards, the invites and postcard RSVPs and the order came one week after I placed it. The seller was phenomenal. I worked with Kristen at Fine and Dandy Paperie on etsy and she was quick to respond to all of my requests. She’ll also send you PDF files if you want to print them on your own. I loved how they came out so much that we’ll be ordering our programs from them too.

I am using Etsy for my ceremony programs and the seller is awesome!!!!!! Just sent me my proofs and they look fabulous! Can’t wait to see the finished product and it is cheaper than going through a local printer! Will let you know how it turns out!!!

I used Etsy for our invitations! I bought from PaperAndPinafore and had a wonderful experience! With shipping I ended up spending $86 for 20 invitations (invite, RSVP card, info card, & envelope) and 20 wrap address labels (so $4.30 for a complete invitation set)…but I figured it was better than driving myself crazy trying to DIY them. If we were having a bigger wedding, I probably would’ve found a cheaper option. But I loved these (I got the “Modern Initials” set) and for our small, casual wedding they were perfect!
