I’ve been putting this off forever and they need to get done!
I want to make a postcard (2 sided) for my Save The Dates. The front is going to be made up of 3 seperate small black and white drawings (not photos) of things and beneath it is text.
On the back, I have the info for the wedding, etc on one half and the name/address of the recipient on the other half.
I had originally intended on taking all of these images (on seperate little pieces of paper) to a printer – they said they could put all the images into a layout and thermograph them. Now, I’m thinking I’ll just print them on my computer to save a few hundred bucks.
I have a scanner, but what program should I use to put all of these images together in the format that I want it?
Should I just go ahead and have a pro do it? It shouldn’t be that hard if I have the right program, right?

You could always try Vistaprint for printing them. I had them print my Save the Dates on a postcard. I got 100 of them for free. I had to pay $4.99 per uploaded image (front and back). (Right now, it is only $2.49 per uploaded image!) It came to about $25 with shipping. I used Adobe Illustrator to design them. Do you have photoshop?

I agree with csbenson. I did my save the date magnets through Vistaprint. You can upload and customize your own design and the quality is pretty good.
If it doesnt show that it is for free for you, then sign up for their email. Most, if not all of their emails have the 100 free postcards offer in them. I plan to use the postcards for my thank you cards.

I’m doing my Save-The-Date Cards through overnightprints. Using Adobe Illustrator to layout the front and back of my postcard, then I will upload each file to their site. They have very clear directions and base files you can download for your files. It’s super easy. Heard about overnightprints through Wedding Bee. Hoping to submit my stuff this weekend so, hopefully by next weekend I’ll have my STDs!
