@Pixienickie:  What about an ecard? Ones that have flash or something? There are some free ones that are pretty decent. Or what about going to a Staples or college or something  … They usually have printing services. I don’t know if you have any in your town. I’m not sure if we are doing STDs so no other advice … Good luck 🙂

I think email is fine. A person will probably have an easier time syncing it with their calendar or making a note of if it’s sent online. Also, you can print off the save the date from the email. You can leave that decision up to the individual. Email save the dates are becoming more common, accepted, and appropriate.

A person I know through my husband just posted a “save the date video” on her facebook wall which completely rubbed me the wrong way.

@Pixienickie:  Super easy.  Take the STD you’ve already designed and turn it into a jpeg.  If you use Gmail you can litterally drag and drop this jpeg into your message body and it will be in the message field rather than as an attachment.  Send to all guests, using the BCC line so not all emails are exposed and so that no reply-all disasters happen.

People may need to click the “show images” button when they get your email depending on their security settings, but that should not be a big deal.  Make sure to use a descriptive title such as “Save the Date – Pixie and Nic’s Wedding on Sept 21”

I did this and it worked great.  Plus it’s super fun to get emails back from people!
