We got our Save the Dates from Vistaprint and they turned out beautifully.  They were postcard thickness, and I had no problem with them bending.

Have you tried Etsy?  You could either buy a template (I’ve seen quite a few for $8-15) and have them printed somewhere else, or find someone that will also print them for you.  For what it’s worth, we used Vistaprint for our save the dates and they turned out great.

@JessieR:  here are a few places you can download invitation designs for free:

as far as printing, you could try looking for local printshops, sometimes they are cheaper. 

I had a good experience with They will send you a booklet of paper samples for free so you can see which ones fit your pricepoint as well as how sturdy you want it to be. You can upload the digital version of your invitations and they will even do a free hard copy proof as well, just allow enough time for that. And, no minimum order size. 

Another option, have you looked at your local craft stores like Joann fabrics, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby? sometimes their boxed invitations go on sale and you can get them pretty cheap.

We got invitations on sale at Joann fabrics.  They usually have coupons out too!  They happened to have all our wedding colors perfect and we paid 40 bucks for a 100 with extra inserts

I used a template off and got them printed at vistaprint on embossed paper.. they came out amazing!!! 


and the best bit, i waited for a sale, and got 70 invites for $40 AUD DELIVERED!! 


i also ordered business cards in the same design which im planning to handwrite names on and use as place cards, and they were only $5!


sorry for the huge pic but i left it big so you can see the texture of the embossed paper. 

Edit – the embossed paper is thick like a postcard so wouldnt bend easily.  

 a little unconventional, but we are doing rsvp via txt and included the wishing well blurb on there too.
