OK ladies, I want to hear it…where did you get those great deals on great cards (or magnets/unique STDs)? Or if you made your own, what software or program did you use?
I saw CVS even makes the postcard style, and pretty cheap at $15/20 and that’s before the coupons (looks like there are a lot of 25% off coupons around).
As always, pics please if you have them! 🙂

We didn’t order yet, but we’re looking at these on etsy. The seller has great reviews, and they come with envelopes and return address labels too, plus a lot of designs to choose from. Otoh, they’re not as customizable with pictures, but we don’t mind. Here they are, $45 for 100

@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!):

@taraelisabeth: I really like those! I wish I had photoshop and talent with it! The picture on the back is such a nice touch, I don’t think the CVS style come with anything cute like that.

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.
