@orchidblooms:  I got 100 postcards from overnightprints.com for $25.88 (that’s including shipping.) I had to design them completely myself in photoshop, but it was worth it for the price! That included full color front & back and I chose rounded corners which were a little extra. I think I did use a $5 coupon that you get for your first order with the site. And here’s a blurry picture (my phone sucks today!):

I designed my own in PowerPoint.  I made the “slide” a 4×6, but only used 3.5×6 when making it.  Then saved it as a PNG (make sure you go to options and select the highest resolution).  

I got them printed at Winkflash.  If it’s your first time ordering through them they have/had a deal where you only paid shipping on the first 50 prints.  I got 70 prints for $3.88.  Don’t make the mistake I did though and have important info near the bottom – my website got cut off, so I ended up having to add to my save the dates and it cost more.

And here’s why I didn’t use the full 4×6: Trimmed down to 3.5×6, they fit in a #6 3/4 envelope (you know, those little business ones that are the perfect size for a check).  I just got plain white ones of those.  They were pretty cheap (don’t remember exactly, but it was way cheaper than the 4×6 envelopes).

I made them into magnets by buying business card sized magnets, cutting those into four strips, and sticking onto the top of the back.
