I had a great experience with Catprint, but I know lots of people on weddingbee like vistaprint for their low pricing.

I had a very good experience with Catprint as well! Request a sample pack before you rule them out, their paper choices may change your mind!

@ebarnes0:  They do have envelopes that are an optional add-on!   But if you want a lot of color choices for envelopes check out cardsandpockets.com. I ordered my envelopes from cards and pockets, and my invitation prints from Catprint.

I think I was able to order envelopes with mine.  It was just an extra cost, I assume because some people get postcards printed.  If you order a standard size though, envelopes are available through lots of paper vendors.  Most invitations are 5×7, which would go into an A7 envelope.

I used Catprint, and I was really happy with how my invites turned out! I bought my envelopes from Paper Source, size A7.5.

@ebarnes0:  I ordered my invites through vistaprint. I did the “create your own design” and chose a blank postcard. It cost me $27 for 100 I think, and I ordered 150 custom envelopes with our name & address already on for maybe $25. However, my PDF had been messed around with a lot so there were parts that were grainy, but i do think that was my fault for creating it in Word then turning it into a PDF. The colors ofr the invites werent all the same either. The color was consistent through the whole invitation, but if you held 2 invitations next to each other, they werent identical. that didnt much matter to me since no one would recieve 2, but some people might mind. 🙂

@lanf5046:  What do you mean by this? I ordered their sample pack last week, so I hope I get it soon!

cardsandpockets.com <- Amazing. I’m getting everything ordered and printed through there.

HUGE variety of colors.

Another vote for Catprint- I used to be a graphic designer, so I’m picky, and I LOVE how everything turned out. Was also a plus that you specify how many of each- if you only need 60 invites, you don’t have to order 100. Make sure to request a sample pack. I used the shimmer envelopes for our RSVPs- so pretty! (I mixed & matched the other stocks)

I did our save the dates through Vistaprint- quality wasn’t as good-glad I did the invites through Catprint.

@bellaluna290:  She probably means that you will find something you didn’t think of- for me, it was the shimmer stock.

I used mpix for a portion of our invites.  I also received a sample pack of paper qualities from CatPrint – I highly recommend doing so if you are looking into them, it helps a lot in choosing what kind of thickness and finish!  I believe cardsandpockets.com also does printing.
