I ordered business cards through Vistaprint that said “for directions, accommodations and more, please visit our wedding website:blah blah.com”

They arrived about 3 days after I ordered them, and they look pretty nice!

I went to a paper store and bought cardstock.  Then I laid them out in MS Word — I had to set up a new page type for my printer to match the size of the cardstock — and printed them individually.  It took awhile to feed them through the printer but I think it worked out ok, and you can work on them while you’re waiting for your invitations.

@Rica2002:  October 1st is WAY too early to have your RSVP date.  The RSVP date should be 1-2 weeks ahead of time.  It should not take you 1 month to track down stragglers.  Asking for RSVPs too early will cause you problems of people needing to change their reply, as they did not know their schedule far enough ahead to accomodate your date.

I would re-print the invitations with a later date, which will then not matter with the time it will take your enclosures to get there.

@Rica2002:  For something like 150 cards, it was around $15.

I made my own in Adobe Illustrator with this wording:

“For lodging, directions, and other information, please visit site.site.com”  I had them printed through Catprint.  Similiar price to Vistaprint but waaaay better paper quality and choices.  You can order paper samples for free.

You could do the same thing in Microsoft paint or word, just paste in a graphic that was on your invite and use a coordinating font.

@andielovesj:  +1. It’s kind of backwards to give guests only a 2 week window to R.s.v.p. when you’ve set the deadline 5 weeks before the event!

2 weeks is pretty short for an rsvp window, but I disagree with the other posters that the date should only be 1-2 weeks out from the actual event. I think it took us a good 2 weeks after our deadline to actually get all the rsvps back, plus a few of our vendors wanted a near-final head count a month in advance.

But I would just do whatever is the quickest for the additional info cards. It would be pretty simple to just set up something in Word and then print them either at home or kinkos/staples/etc.
