I’ve been considering hte same thing and was actually going to post this question!

I think they are good but I’m considering the "tear and send" kind which I think might a be a little tacky but they are sooo much easier.. what do you think?

My mom is pretty set against them, but I ordered some samples from The Green Kangaroo and I actually really, really like them.  (Maybe I just love a postcard with our names in big, fancy lettering with flourishes…)  Actually, since the normal RSVP card is just printed on the one side, and the postcard is printed on both sides, the normal RSVP looks kind of plain next to the postcard.

While I didn’t use them, I see nothing wrong with postcard RSVPs.  I’ve had a friend who did the tear off kind and I thought it was fine.  No one gives them an extra thought once they are dropped off in the mailbox.

We’re using them!  We designed our own invites.  For the RSVP card we printed our address in the fancy script used on the invite and then on the back, we used the same pattern as the invite to tie the look together.  And I agree with <span class=”postby”>litlkahuna–more green!

I designed my own and am using them. Depending on size the postage only costs 21 cents.  And I think it’s super easy for doing your seating chart as well.  🙂

Vista Print has a HUGE sale going on right now. I wasn’t going to use postcards but 250 for $24, I can’t pass that up. The RSVP cards/envelopes that I was going to use come nowhere CLOSE to that cost. Plus, the saving on postage aspect is huge.

For the RSVPs how were you able to print on both sides? I think that is pretty difficult. I would like to use lettersize cardboard paper so that I can print a couple RSVPs per page. But how can I print so that both sides will be in line? (One side our adress and the other side the RSVP) Does anybody has tips or templates available?

I think post cards are great…I used them twice in my own wedding, so I might be biased though. 🙂 Just note that post card stamps take longer to arrive than regular first class stamps, so if you’re worried about time/deadline, you might want to think about the first class stamp.

I think they are great – I am doing envelopes just because with my particular invite it works best.

I was a bit worried about the postcards getting lost in the mail, you like when you grab the mail out of the box and sometimes smaller things fall out? But then again I worry mostly because my post man does everything a little half assed. 

I thnk you’ll be fine and you’ll save a ton.

 I did postcards too- and I’m so excited to see them arrive back in the mailbox.

Less paper- more cost effective and they help set the tone of our event which isn’t as formal as the typical wedding.

Good idea! Saves you money and paper too! I recently received an invite with a RSVP postcard. I thought it was a cute idea. I plan to do the same. However, I’m not sure if I’m going to order it or make it myself. How are you ladies making yours? Photoshop? InDesign?

I am going the rsvp postcard route. I think its great and eco-friendly.
I just hope my guest won’t think I forgot to add the envelope. I doubt it… but you never know.
