Hive, I’m relatively new around here but I’ve seen the wonderful support of the hive in action so I’m hoping you’ll share your wisdom with me.
I’m in the planning stages of designing my invitation suite and I’d like to do the reply cards as postcards (to save $$).
1) Does anyone have any good resources for postcard/reply postcard templates?
2) I’ve seen a few examples done in one of two ways:
a) My address is placed one side and the RSVP itself is on the other
b) My address is on the same side as the RSVP information (with divider line) and a fun print on the other side.

@MissBucky:I started from scratch using a Word postcard template to start with. And then on side A was comments and my address/stamp with a divider line and side B was the RSVP information.
ETA: If I could do it over I would put RSVP info on the same side as the address and something else on the back. Several people didn’t realize it was a postcard. I would probably put something on the back that indicates what it is. Such a small thing but something I would change.

I did mine using photoshop and word, with my addy on one side and my RSVP on the other. I printed them using my own printer.
It just depends on how much space you need for your RSVP info. We really needed one full side for ours.

Ours were like your (b) choice.
We had a picture on the front and then I put all the info on the back
VistaPrint has great deals when you sign up for their emails and they have a template you can download so you know the measurements etc.
Here’s our RSVP cards

I love the idea of putting the reply on the same side as your address and doing a fun print on the front of it. That is what I’m planning to do with our response cards.

I’m attempting to do a fun print on one side and the info/my address on the other. The trick I think is the size. The ones I’m making are 5×4, so I have about 3 inches by 4 for the rsvp info and 2 inches for address… or 2.5 and 2.5. I think it can work. I’m using a background I found online for Powepoint and just adjusting the slide size to the size that I need, adding white text boxes and mimicking formats that I;ve seen online. I’m also doing _____ of _#_ accept with no decline line.
