We are doing a std postcard for a few reasons. 1- less postage, thus less cost 2-I like the look of them and how everything is all on one piece of paper and 3-less paper from the envelope saves a few trees
I am between using ones from MagnetStreet.com or Zazzle.com (sample pix below). Has anyone ordered from either place for postcards or other wedding stationary? The price may be right but I dont want to realize I got super thin and flimsy cards! With our quantity, they will be about $0.80 each to order (+shipping, $.33 postage).
I like magnet street because you can pick a color template and do a lot of customizing. Zazzle is nice because they have a few designs I really love that I would have to do little to.
Ex from magnetstreet:
If you have other recommendations, I’d be interested in hearing them!!

I designed ours in Adobe Illustrator (graphic designer) and then uploaded the design to Vistaprint. the quality was great, they came quickly and the price was awesome (125 for like $30!)
I’m not sure how their templates look though, so I can only suggest that the quality was really nice.

I designed our in Adobe Illustrator and then used VistaPrint. I can’t speak to the templates since I designed from scratch, but I used VP for both our save the dates and thank you cards. I did order the heavier card stock which was $10 more, but well worth it. I can’t remember how much we paid for the save the dates because we had magnets too, but I got 100 post cards for $25 with the thick card stock in terms of thank yous. Great quality!

I used Wedding Paper Divas for all of my invitations/STDs/TY cards/etc. and they were great. The customer service is excellent and they really do have a designer review each order before going to print. I custom-designed my TY cards in InDesign and the image ended up being a little blurry (but I couldn’t tell on my end) and a designer personally called and emailed me to let me know and figure out the best course of action going forward. They actually ended up duplicating my design for me for free. The paper/card stock they use is really nice and thick and the sample kit they have does a good job of giving you an idea of how it will turn out.
They offer a lot of specials and discounts on their products and everything I ordered had some sort of discounts applied to it. Sometimes, it can be quite generous e.g. 50% off. Here’s the link to all their current promotions: http://www.weddingpaperdivas.com/promo/wedding-paper-divas-coupon-codes-promotions.htm

I ordered my invitations and RSVP postcards from zazzle.com. They were an excellent price and not flimsy. I would recommend them.

I just ordered mine a little while ago from papersnaps.com
I just needed 40, so it was inexpensive for me.
FYI, Moo.com is currently having a sale. Just got an email from them.

- Wedding: July 2013 - The front lawn of our church
overnightprints.com was absolutely awful! The first time they sent them to me, they were cut wrong. I contacted them (it’s very hard to get ahold of them) and they finally sent me new ones. The coloring was off the second time they sent them to me. Now I’m trying to get someone there to return my call.

@MSbride2Bee: I got ours from zazzle and they were perfect. The weight of them was great – the only issue was the box for the stamp was too big…so delete the box for the stamp if you can!
Oh and dont put stuff at the very bottom as the post office will be printing stuff there.

I ordered mine from Zazzle and they were great quality!
I know the PP said not to put things on the bottom because the post office will print stuff there…well I had a lot on he bottom and nothing was printed over it. (they printed a faint orange barcode thing but it didn’t cause any issues)

We got ours from overnightprints.com, and I thought they were great. Easy online site to design the postcard, great quality, and inexpensive. Our save-the-dates cost ~$30 for 100, and now I’m a “VIP” so our thank-yous were only $15 or so.

@MSbride2Bee: I second the PP on Wedding Paper Divas. I used them for both my sister and SIL’s bridal showers and they were fabulous. High quality and great customer service. I will be using them for my STD and invitations.
They also frequently have 20% off and if you order a sample I think they send you a 20% off coupon to use on your order 🙂

Our STDs were also postcards, but my graphic designer friend did them for us (including printing)
However, we did use Vistaprint for our Thank You cards, and the quality was great. We did pay the extra bit for the glossy and thicker paper. I would use them over and over again if I could!

I got mine from Vistaprint for like… $8 for 100. I actually had a coupon to make the whole thing completely free but upgraded to color which cost me like $7. They DID have a teeeeeennyyy tiiiiiiiiny “vistaprint.com” printed on them in the bottom corner but you really couldn’t see it. Quality was GREAT and they made perfect save the dates. I used one of the pre-made templates and just changed the color. It fit my theme/wedding perfectly.

I used VistaPrint and I put a picture over the entire front so there wasn’t any logo anywhere. I also had a Groupon so they were super cheap. Then I put all the info on the back with the address. FYI – if you want to to a return address, put it in a thin vertical line separating the tex from the address – if you put it horizontally, the post office scanners will send them all back to you! Also, I rounded my corners with a little punch and it made the cards look so much nicer! And they say they go threough the post office machaines with less damage if they have rounded corners. And it was super easy.

I used vistaprint for the STD and zazzle for the invitations
I recommend both sites…..
