I used Vistaprint for a bridal shower invite, and they’re regular matte paper is honestly a little bit flimsy. I think for wedding invites the linen finish might be a better choice. It’s still a matte finish, but the paper is a little better. Good luck!

If you order an invitation sample kit from them, it includes invites printed on different papers they offer (and arrives fairly quickly).  I agree with jo.lee, the quality is not that great and for invites I would go with the linen finish.  I did my invites through vistaprint on recycled paper and it was the look I was going for and am happy with them.

@Keltaena: I don’t know if you’ve looked at them yet, but Magnet Street’s prices are similar to Vistaprint and they have a MUCH wider wedding invitation section.  I ordered my STDs from Vistaprint, and will probably order other things from there, but the Magnet Street invitations I chose are MUCH nicer than anything I found on V.

I agree you should get the sample kit! They always have deals going on, just google “free vistaprint ________” and you’ll usually find it. They run those deals to try to convince you to buy today, but you can probably get the same price in a few weeks.

We ordered the sample kit and loved the glossy postcards (we’re using them for our STDs) but we weren’t feeling the invitations. The linen finish is nicest, but when I compared it to other invitations I’d received, the paper was super flimsy. They’re still really nice for such a low price, but it’s definitely not heavy cardstock. I would also check out 123print, the prices are similar and they do a little heavier linen paper!

I got linen finish for my invitations and the paper was pretty thin. The engagement party invites I ordered a while back were glossy finish, but weren’t as shiny as postcards. You might order a pack of 10 (see if you can find a coupin for 1/2) just to see what they look like. Their sample wedding pack only has one glossy example in it and it’s a postcard. Good luck!
