Catprint turned out great- I’m a former graphic designer, so I’m VERY picky, and I was happy with the quality of our invites. They’ll send you stock samples as well. Vistaprtint- meh. Used for save the dates and thank you cards-REALLY glad I didn’t send them the invites.

You could always do a one-quantity piece if you really wanted to test out catprint.

@climbergirl:  i used catprint because of the hard copy proofs they send beforehand. It allowed me to see and touch the paper and see how it would turn out and if i didnt like it, i could easily cancel the order.

Catprint does hard copy proofs!  They will also send you samples of their paper.  Or you can get proofs printed on multiple paper options so you can see how they will appear in person.  We did that for STDs and it was hugely helpful– designs show up differently on different colored paper.

 

We also had invites printed there.  I backed them with a second card, because I wanted a different-colored border.  Also added embellishments, most of which came from PaperSource (another good resource).    But I’d recommend not printing on your own– it’s a huge pain and Catprint is awesome.
