Hello! I recently bought the Groupon coupon $17 for $70. I want to use it for my save the dates…I’m just wondering what anyone’s experience/advice. If you used postcards (this is what I’m leaning towards so postage will be cheaper than a magnet), or if you used them to address your STDs…honestly I will just take any advice 🙂 thanks!

I’m not much help with the postcard idea, but if you do choose to go wtih the flat card instead of the postcard, I would highly recommend a paper upgrade. We ordered a free sample pack of the wedding invitations to see all of the paper options, and the texture on the “linen” option made it feel a lot nicer. We thought it was definitely worth it, especially since we also had a Groupon.
A little side note, I was underwhelmed by our final product in regards to the color. I’m sure that it was my fault, as I created our own design and didn’t test print (didn’t have color ink!). The colors looked vibrant in the sample pack that we received, where as our STDs were rather dull. Just something to think about it you do upload your own design. Overall we were definitely happy that we went with them, you can’t beat that price!

I went with the magnets. They actually only need one stamp and they can be put on a fridge so they wont get lost!

I did the Vistaprint Save the Date Postcards! LOVED mine! I think the only thing I would have done differently would be to have larger font on the back of the postcard, but that was my goof, not Vistaprints. I ended up getting a great deal on mine and since I’m having a small wedding, I had tons left over in case I made accidents when addressing them.
I was really happy with mine and they served their purpose — letting people know to save the date! However, I’m not really “into” invitations and spending money on paper products that will eventually hit the trashcan, so Vistaprints options were a great way for me to have Save The Dates without spending tons of money!

I just ordered from vista print for STD postcards. I found it to be the most user-friendly uploading and editing program, as I was using a photo image that I took. I used a 4×6 card and the size of the fonts and images came out perfectly. The only thing that I was a little disappointed on was the paper- I ordered the matte stock, and felt it was a little thin. No one else has commented on it, though.

I just received mine in the mail! I went with the premium glossy because I am using them as actual post cards and I LOVE them! they are quite thick and the quality is great! I hope they hold up in the mail!

We just ordered ours and I am waiting for them to come in. They should be here in the next week or so. I am so excited! I mean you really can’t beat the price. We saved $93 on them. You can’t beat spending $27 total on save the dates. Our wedding is not huge and so we needed to spend at least the $70 so we went over teh $70 a but and were left with an $11 balance. So for $27 we got mousepads (my mother’s doing) and then the 70 STDs with special envelopes or something…idk they are postcards but my mom added envelopes in the event they don’t turn out like we planned.
I will post a photo when we receive them!

We didn’t do postcards, but we did do Vistaprint for everything. We loved our save the dates, and we got tons of compliments on them. All I have right now is a screen cap off the site, but this is the front and back:
