    I am designing and printing them myself so all I have to do is pay for is postage. We are sending 95 out.

    I voted less than $20, but it’s a little confusing, so I’m explaining…

    First, we bought a Groupon for Vista Print (it was $17 for $70 worth of goods). I didn’t love any of Vista Prints STD templates, so I searched on Etsy and found a seller who would create a design and email it to us. Her template was $12! I then took this image and uploaded it to Vista Print. We bought 50 STD magnets (and included envelopes) for $13. The groupon covered the products but we had to pay shipping.

    Long story short- $12 template and $13 shipping for 50 STD magnets plus envelopes! We are thrilled with how they came out!!!

    We used two Groupons to Vistaprint for 200 magnets. We got 200 magnets (loved the design!!), matching custom envelopes, then a bunch of random stuff to get free shipping (shipping would have cost more than just buying more): Calendar, phone case, notepad, poster, 30 invite samples. Total for everything was $40.

    About $75 for 100 postcards plus stamps. 

    A drop in the bucket, unfortunately, and everyone loved them, so well worth it. 

    (I voted including postage. I think just the postcards were 40ish.)

    You can download free or cheap templates online, personalize, buy a big pack of card stock at like staples, buy paper cutter with coupon from joanns. Takes a little time but you can save a lot!

    @ladyamalthea:  I had 100 made from our photographer- it was included in our wedding package (no specific amount it was valued at). We paid 60 for postage, and 3 dollars for string and 2 dollars on glue dots. 

    We only sent out 55. Stamps were 60cents because of the string they could not be sent through a machine.

    Ours were designed by a graphic designer friend. We ordered 100 postcards (printed on both sides) and they were about $45 From Overnight Prints.  They actually sent us about 10-15 extra which was a nice surprise. Quality was great!

    @Adelaide I designed them to fit several on 12×12 paper so only have to print 8. Probably going to pay like $3 as fiance is printing them at work.

    We sent out electronic STDs so they were free!

    We’re using VistaPrints. It will cost us less than 20$ for the STDs.
