Also we did ours through vista print. I created my own design in MS Word and uploaded it. If you go that way make sure to find a groupon for a super deal ( we found one froma bee, $17 and you get $70! I got 2 and had a friend buy an extra one so I could do my invites and thank you’s as well)

I designed both postcards for Save the dates and the RSVP response cards.  I would suggest checking out USPS’s site for the restrictions on postcards (what size they need to be, and what needs to be where).  I had them printed out from Mpix.com.  Many peeps on here have also used vistaprint, beacuse they are pretty cheap, and you can usually find coupons.  

 

Here were my save the dates.  I designed them in Photoshop (but you can do it on other programs as well..) 

 Also, I didn’t print the grey parts out, but had them in the document when I was designing them to make sure I kept all the areas free that the post office needed blank, or that I needed for addresses, or the stamp)

Be sure you check the USPS regulations for size and paper thickness. They have to go through machines at the post office, so they have to fall within certains specifications.

May I suggest postagagram? It’s an iPhone app that only costs .99/card (so very cheap once you add up printing and postage). Provided you have an image of your design you can do it all from your phone. Send yourself a test and then send the rest right from the phone and they’re mailed straight to your list. I use postagram on vacation to send instant post cards. The picture even pops out for the receiver to save. It’s simple, fast and very affordable.
