    Jewelieee:  If the RSVP postcards aren’t letterpress, then I would just get them printed somewhere else.

    Check out this quote from smartpress.com:

    You can also look at catprint.com.  I’ve used both and they do good work.

    Is it necessary that you have 5×7 postcards? If not I would keep the ones they made and ask that they only charge you for that size and credit you the difference plus maybe a bit extra for the screw up.

    I see a lot of bees over stress about invitations, most people don’t notice all the little things that stress everyone out. I would never think that the postcards were 5×7 instead of 4×6.

    Jewelieee:  Oh well that is a crappy situation I agree. All I meant by my comments was try not to get stressed over this it’s not worth it 🙂

    I guess if you can’t get a credit I would just focus on the money you said you saved by going with this printer. If they won’t do anything for you I would leave a bad review if I could, but besides taking them to small claims which probably wouldn’t be worth it there is not much you can do unfortunatly.

    Jewelieee:  That’s the approach! I would keep the 4×6 and not work again with her. Do leave a bad review. That’s what we all use to decide whether to go with a vendor or not!

    Jewelieee:  You actually raise a good point. I’ll ask my custom designer/printer if she prints them or if she is outsourcing it too. I’m already 1k above my total budget and that’s not including alcohol yet into the picture.  Oh god…

    Yeah, this.

    “4) Suck it up, just use the 4×6 postcards and exchange my A7 envelopes for a smaller size. Most of the guests won’t give a crap about the invites. I know that this is the cheapest option but the bride brat in me hates that I spent a lot of time and money to carry out this vision for my invites and in the end I didn’t get to fulfill it or get what I paid for.”<br /><br /><br />
