I think it would be worth it for sure to pay the extra 10 and get the matte side for the RSVP page. However, I understand trying to stick to a budget and if it isn’t in your budget to do – your guests will find a way to write on it. I am not 100% sure what it would be like to write on the glossy side, but maybe take a glossy picture that you don’t need and try and write something on it? It might give you a better idea of what it would be like for your guests and if you want to pay the extra 10. Good luck!! 🙂

I used their postcards (glossy) for my thank yous and I used a sharpie pen. It didn’t bleed or run at all. They look great! But I didn’t try it with a regular pen…

I accidentally made mine glossy. Wasn’t the end of the world, all were legible. But I would advise you to avoid it if possible, regular pens smear like crazy.

I used Vista print post cards as well but I had the front glossy side say please RSVP by such and such a date either by webpage or mailing the card back and on the matte side on the left side of the card in smaller print I had the spot for their names and the yes we’ll be attending no the no we’ll be declining. On the right side I had our names and return address with a stamp. I wanted it to look like a real post card I even managed to get a verticle line down the middle. They turned out great and were the perfect size.

@HelloRaeven:  I did the address and RSVP part on the same (matte) side… and put a picture on the front!


Back (designed it myself) (had to blur out our address!):

Front (this image was used in all our stationary):
