Vista print is cute and depending on the ones you choose are very reasonably priced. Remember you can customize all of the wording, nothing is hard-set with Vista Print, you can even upload your own images and use them 🙂

Vistaprint is very customizable, once you select the design you like, you can change the font if you want and the font colors, and then all of the wording is editable.

It’s very affordable, especially if you go with a Groupon($17 for $70 worth of VistaPrint). However, the Groupon takes you to a special Vistaprint site and the prices are noticeably higher there, but it is steal cheaper to shop with that than on VP. The Groupon does not cover shipping, and you have to use the entire Groupon in one visit.

Over the course of the STD to invites, I purchased

100: STDs 

50: Thank you cards, Information cards, RSVP cards, two sets of invitations (I ordered the incorrect size the first time), return address labels, a 12 month picture calendar and two canvas tote bags for my bridesmaids.

3 Groupons + ~$8 in shipping each time =51+24= $75

And you could get more than that, but I upgraded to the linen paper on all pieces, and most are printed on each side, and all were uploaded designs I made (have to pay more to upload designs).

I used VistaPrint for my STDs and they aren’t in yet but the designing process was easy! I bought a Groupon and when I tried to use it I realized that the initial prices I looked at were an automatic discount which disappeared with the Groupon making it a much less impressive deal. But I called customer service and explained what was happening and that if I couldn’t get it fixed I wouldn’t order the extras I’d been planning to get and then they got me a promotion that was better than the original prices I was looking at! So it worked out well. I spent $80 for 100 postcards with a color picture on one side and black/white image on back plus 3 deluxe 2 tone canvas bags with images printed on both sides. Awesome deal.

I used vistaprint for my invites and I LOVED them! They were an amazing deal (100 invites, and 100 response cards with envelopes and upgraded cardstock/color printing on both sides) and with my groupon the total was 70 dollars. Best yet, i can use a ‘normal’ stamp on the envelope and i dont have to fuss with the DIY aspect (the cost of ink in my printer would have been WAY more then that!)

I would say go for it!

@Mrs_Pacman:  We used vista print after finding a groupon that cost $17 for $70 worth of printing. I found the measurements on vista of the item I wanted to create and used MS word to create a completely custom design. I just changed the paper size, found some inspiration and then uploaded my design to the “custom design” option on vista. they came out fantastic! I did Save the dates, RSVP’s Invitations, Thank you cards, stickers and return address labels. They all truned out perfectly and I wish I had more things to print because I nejoyed it so much! I think all in all I paid about $100 for the printing of the whole group ( I did about 80 of each thing, the return adderss labels come up as an otion after you have selected to purchase and they are always super cheap, if you want to buy 1 sheet, the promotion come up after and says would you like to buy 4 sheets for 1/4 of the cost? Heck yes I would! we used them on the cover of our RSVP envelopes!)

If you need any help PM me I would be happy to help

@Mrs_Pacman:  Google : $17 for $70 vistaprint Groupon and check the dates of the results, if something has been in say, the last 3-4 days, it’s most likely still active. Click the link and purchase it (it doesn’t have to be your local Groupon). The one I bought a week ago was from Akron.

If you don’t find one and aren’t in a rush, wait a week or two, there is almost always a Groupon for this, somewhere.

Also, verify the expiration date. I purchased once in anticipation and realized how soon it was and had to quickly order something with it lol.

Just wanted to report that I just got my STDs in the mail and I’m very pleased with the quality!

These are my Vistaprint invitations. I love their products – I used them for a non-profit summer camp prior to the wedding, so I knew I would be getting my STDs and invitations through them.
