I found the perfect StD and Invite on Etsy a while back. The only problem was that the seller does not print them; she only sells you the PDF and you print them yourself. I’m about as crafty as a lumberjack, so I decided to upload them to a website to have them printed. I stressed and freaked out for about 2 weeks about the whole thing researching websites and print shops. I finally ended up spazing out and ordering my StDs last night from Zazzle.com sort of on a whim. I pep talked myself today saying it’s just the StDs and if they’re not perfect, I will make sure the invites, etc. are. Has anyone ever ordered anything to be printed from Zazzle? Any advice on printing myself? (Although I’ve pretty much ruled that out at this point because I’m terrified of messing up). And envelopes. I didn’t order them from Zazzle, but I’m thinking I might buy them from Target separately. Any advice/words of wisdom would be sooo helpful!

I don’t have any experience with Zazzle, but we used CatPrint.com to print our Invitiations and Programs. They did a great job and you can specify the exact turn around time that you need to save money. The paper options at CatPrint were really nice and they’ll send you samples of the paper for free.

I had ours printed through Vistaprint, and they’re gorgeous. You can request a free sample pack from them, too (it’s huge). We did the matte stock, which is very nice, and they reprinted/resent my invitation and thank you card order when they came printed way too bright.

We did our own digital files for the save the dates and printed them with overnightprints.com. So far, so good, in terms of quality (we have the Spanish version printed and the English version in print right now). Total, for 30 Spanish, and 100 English, including shipping, it came to $33.
With the file upload portion of the website you just need to be very careful that you follow every instruction they give.
Here’s how ours turned out:

I bought a template on etsy & I’m currently having them printed by vista print. I’m super excited after ordering my save the dates from them. As far as envelopes they give white envelopes but I’m purchasing a pretty metallic envelope from carcards & pockets to use as ther outer envelope.

Select an easily replicable set of fonts. I ordered invites from wedding paper divas and did not pay for address printing on envelopes bec I intended to hand write them. Later after I changed my mind, I couldn’t get the same font wpd used so I had to get something close to it. Wish is just let wpd do it so it all would have matched.
