I did! Read reviews and their policy ahead of time. I have had great expereinces on etsy (aside from 1, for table #s, the shop owner is rude, so I filed a claim)! Any specific shop you found or just in general?

I didn’t order my invitations through etsy, but I did order many other decor items and such. I only had 1 bad experiance.

You can pay through paypal, so that helps protect you if something were to go wrong, just make sure you leave yourself plenty of time incase you have to make a new order through another company.

Always check the reviews, if they don’t have many, or it seems like they have way TOO many for how long the store has been open [like if they have 200 reviews and the store has been open a month – they are probably fake reviews!].

Also, maybe check out sellers that other bees have went with and had good experiances with.

SurelyAsTheSunWillRise:  I ordered our invites through an Etsy seller Lama Works and it was the best thing ever!  The shop was amazing, they were great to work with and the quality was astounding!  We sent them out a little over a week ago and the response from our guests has been wonderful!

We used CreatingAPaperMemory for STDs and will use them for invitations. They’re great if you want something reasonably priced and are okay with more basic designs

SurelyAsTheSunWillRise:  Really cute stuff! The thing to look for is if they physically make them and ship them or if you’re simply buying a proof that you’d then take to kinkos etc. That seems like more work than necessary. Many shops do full invitations, RSVPs, STDs etc that they make, send a proof for approval, then print and ship to you. 

For example the one store “Jodryluxe” you’re buying a printable design. Here is where you’d take the design and have them printed somewhere else. the other shop–does it all for you! I prefer that way of doing things 🙂 

Always contact the shop (ask a question tab) before an order–they’ll most likely create a custom order for you. Ask if you can see a proof before shipment. Almost all do, as there are many little changes that tend to be made at that stage of the process.

JordyLuxe did my save the date image (they were only doing images then, but I said they should to STD’s!) and I was so so pleased. The detail was wonderful and it looks just like us. I also got my brother and SIL a wedding portrait and it came out great. The deal with getting a digital file is you have to find a good print shop to work with. I liked being able to touch and feel the papers before picking. I also ordered my invitations from Etsy, and loved them. I did vellum inner envelopes, twine and wax seals inside regular envelopes. I loved that I got to really make them the way I liked.

SurelyAsTheSunWillRise:  I recently bought my invitations through Lama Works as well, and I concur with everything renwoman: said! They were great to work with, and I have gotten so many compliments from my guests!
