The cheapest option is probably just to buy thank-you cards from somewhere like Target.

Hit up Target, walmart and hobby lobby. I got packs of 50 for $10.99. They were simple yet pretty.

That’s what we did. You can get a box of 12 for about $6 I think, or if you go to Staples, Office Depot, etc online you might find larger packages with better prices.

If you’re willing to put in a bit of time, then they’re not too hard to DIY! I just used Microsoft word, make the page two colums, make the page landscape, and then near the bottom of the page (on the left column and the right column) type thank you in a pretty script (dafont.com has tons to download). Then I cut each page in half and folded the card. Then I took a cup with some water and a mixed in a bit of blue paint (just a bit) and swept my paint brush across the card starting from the bottom. I used card stock from Michaels. In the end they probably costed me less than ten cents a piece!

I read in your post that you wanted a “folded card to put the picture in”. I assume you meant to tuck the picture inside a normal card. If that’s not the case, perhaps you could describe better What you are looking for? All the PPs said exactly what I was thinking… We got super cute cards at Walmart for cheap. I picked up cards at marshals and tj maxx for shower thank you’d.

Ahh I see! Yeah the way you worded it made it seem like you wanted to just tuck the picture in the fold. Do you mean to have the picture be the front of the card? Can you post an example?

You’re going to have to pay a premium if you want custom photo cards. I would sign up with a few of the most popular sites for email notifications of sales. For example, I just got an email that Zazzle is having a sale right now of 50% off all cards and invites with the code ZCARDSFORYOU.

I got my photo folded thank you cards from Vistaprint. I got 50 cards for $40.86 with shipping and tax, so about $.80 each. They are gorgeous! I’m pretty sure I used a coupon code but my order history doesn’t say which one. They always have discounts going on though. I’m not sure if you can get cheaper than that. Maybe try a pharmacy or Walmart?

We did ours at Costco’s online photo website. I can’t imagine they were expensive, as we are cheap. I just don’t remember the cost right now.
