I designed my own at http://www.vistaprint.com with pictures I had taken on my own.  They are postcard sized but have envelopes.  They were $100 for 200 cards/envelopes, but there are definitely less costly options if that’s not your thing.

If you want to go really cost effective, you can do an email.  Some people don’t like it, but it’s obviously very affordable and green.  If we were going the email route we would have made a gmail just for the wedding.  And then you can do cards for non-email folks – and spend a lot less on printing and postage.

I’m planning on making save the date postcards on postcards.com, they have templates there and you can add a picture of the two of you. They’re really cheap, $23 for 100. You’d also be saving on postage since it costs less to send postcards than letters. This is probably the cheapest option!

I used http://www.magnetstreet.com and they’re did a great job. They put 4 engagement pictures on it and it cost $160 for 150 magnets!

I designed a save-the-date on Microsoft Powerpoint and uploaded my own design onto large magnets at http://www.vistaprint.com. I think the price ended up being less that $1 a piece!

We’re going to pick a photo of us that we like, alter it a bit in photoshop and add in some text (save the date! #.#.#), print them out ten to a page (business card size) at Staples, and stick them onto magnets.

Our other idea is to do postcards (don’t need envelopes!).

We are also doing out Save The Dates in photoshop and getting them printed via Vistaprint. We sent the design to get printed at Walgreens first so we could be sure on color quality (we are doing a sepia, vintagey looking postcard). Once they are finalized I’ll post them!

I know it sounds a little weird, but Costco.com actually has invitations for decent prices.
