@CestTresJolie14:  I used Vistaprint for our entire set of wedding stationery and had a great experience. You have the option to upload your own designs, and the prices are tough to beat. There are often Groupon/LivingSocial deals that reduce the cost even more. Good luck!

I got my invitations printed through catprint.com, they were easy to work with and they came out really nice.

@CestTresJolie14:  If you don’t mind printing them on photopaper, Costco is suuuuuper cheap. I was considering having them print out our custom image file onto their photopaper and mounting them onto colored cardstock. I wanna say it’s like $0.25 per print, and that includes a really nice, thick, lined envelope.

If quality paper is important to you, I’d check out vistaprint, zazzle, and weddingpaperdivas. The first 2 websites do frequent sales/coupon codes.

@CestTresJolie14:  I think they can print it on matte photopaper, but I’m not sure. You should visit one near you to see their paper and envelopes

We used Vistaprint with the Groupon deal.  No complaints!

I’m designing ours myself, and I plan on having them printed at Vistaprint, because we’re doing postcards (cheaper materials cost and cheaper postage!)

If you’re doing cards, I’d consider having it printed at Kinko’s or someplace similar if I could, but purchase folding card paper and envelopes myself. I’d check and see if they can print on my materials before I brought them in.

I ordered mine but if I knew someone like your FI, who’s a graphic designer, then I’d go for that!

I got our save the dates through Wedding Paper Divas and I’m extremely happy with how they turned out.  70 STD postcards with photos were $105 full price but they almost always have specials, usuallly 10-30% off with the coupon code.
