If you used an online vendor (like Minted or WeddingPaperDivas) to design and print your save the dates, which one did you use and what was your experience like? What was the price range for your STDs and how was the quality?

@MKWeddingBee: I had my STDs (and invites, actually) printed through vistaprint. I didn’t design them on there, or use one of there designs, though. One of my best friends is a photographer and did our engagement photos then used on of them to make a file I liked and I updated it to vistaprint and printed their “postcards” for the STDs. We got them for a super cheap price (I think it was $40 for 100 – with upgraded paper etc). And we loved them!

We used wedding paper divas and ordered them through Costco. We ordered 300 postcards. I think we spent around $250.00. My fiancé took care of the ordering and design. We were thrilled with our purchase and have received so many compliments from friends and family. Good luck.

@MKWeddingBee: Magnet Street. They were awesome! (see pic below). I ordered us the free samples and with it came an amazing coupon that I was able to use.

Magnetstreet – oversized magnets. Ordered them during a 20% off deal, if I remember correctly. Used standard postage. Put our website address on it, because it’s a semi-destination, and we have 4 hotel room blocks in place.

I got mine from Invitations by Dawn. I liked the amount of customization I was able to do. It was fun playing around with the typefaces/fonts, colors, etc. They were affordable and quick. We’ve gotten a few compliments and we haven’t even sent that many out yet.

zazzle.com and they were perfect!!! They looked identical in person to what I saw on the computer screen! The color was bold, the pictures were crystal clear, and the quality was amazing! It was fun too, to personal their template with your own touch. I highly recommend them.

Ive used Zazzle for STDs and Mixbook for our invites. Both were fantastic, and super cheap! For 43 invites and 45 STDs weve only paid $140, and that includes like $20 in shipping (which is ridiculous, but I got my invites three business days after I bought them online).

@MKWeddingBee: We actually ordered ours through Shutterfly.com. I didn’t like most of their designs but we found a very simple one that was perfect for the engagement photo we wanted to use.
We were looking at Wedding Paper Divas but we didn’t want to spend that much on the STDs since we only needed 75.
Just remember to keep an open mind when looking at all of the templates, once you personalize some of them they seem to look better than the sample!
