what website are you looking at? Sometimes they charge extra for uploading images (i.e. vistaprint), and sometimes it is included in the price. But that sounds like a good deal to me (depending on the quality).

I had a friend design mine- They turned out to be 4.5×4 inches and we just took the design to Staples. It was just under $50 to have about 85 printed on this really awesome shiny ivory paper. It would have been cheaper if we didn’t use the fancy paper! I was pleased with the cost.

mine were 100 for free from vistaprint, but with a minimal $5 dollar or so charge for uploading my own design. Then shipping and handling, but it was still fairly inexpensive.

vistaprint was good for me, but you have to be careful not to sign up for any “extras”, otherwise they will spam your inbox for life.. 😛

Note – – if you are ordering from Vistaprint, unless you need them immediately, choose the cheapest shipping method.  I ordered 200 save the date postcards from them, and both times selected the 21 day shipping option.

I received both sets within 5-7 days.

Good luck!

I got mine for 60 cents each (including shipping, tax) from overnightprints.com.  They are 5×7″ so I used forever stamps for postage.

Keep in mind that the the oversized postcards require regular postage.  I did oversized, but bought the cheap VistaPrint envelopes–I liked doing it that way since it protected the cards and made them not look like junk mail.
