We’re using them, but they haven’t been sent so I don’t know what our guests think.  I’ve received postcard save the dates in the mail and I thought they were appropriate.  Save the dates don’t really need much info on them besides your names, the date, the city, and perhaps a website.

I used a postcard STD.  I didn’t save on postage because I didn’t want to use the fruit stamps for postcards but I really liked them and they were so cute!

I think it is a great idea and think of the savings in postage! 28 cents each vs 44 cents each. Every penny adds up when you are planning a wedding!

We sent our postcards out last week and have gotten great feedback.  They’re small enough to stick on the fridge or near the calendar.  We designed our own, printed them on Vistaprint (slurged on the linen paper) and with shipping spent under $30 (we only needed to send 35 STDs).  Easy, cheap,  and painless!!

Hey, I responded to your other post about vistaprint 🙂  I have gotten many postcard STDs from other friends of mine so it seems to be a popular thing to do – and postcards are pretty harmless, i don’t see how anyone could hate them!

We had a lot of info to put on the back of ours, and, we didn’t want them to get ratty in the mail – so we ordered the super cheap postcards from vistaprint, but mailed them in a matching white envelope (also super cheap thru vistaprint).

I think either way works!

We got one from our friends who had a destination wedding, they were so cute! On the front it was a picture with beautiful beach and a single palm tree. They PhotoShopped their initial into the bark of the tree, and it was adorable and cost-effective.

We didnt’ want to have to do envelopes (extra postage) with a magnet (more printing) so we just did postcards.  I think a lot of people like to put on the fridge so this still works.
