Here’s the mockup of our DIY STDs. It is kinda hard to tell in the picture but the tag on the pencils says “PENCIL IT IN! Bride & Groom are getting married!” The card in the lid is a fabric backed magnet. We’ll use one of our engagement pictures once we have them taken.

I did they were simple and post cards to save on postage. 🙂

On the ones we sent out there was writing “Save the Date (date), Me & Fiance”
We had 4 distorted photos that we mailed out.

I made up Save the Date cards on Vistaprint.ca. I used postcards with our engagement photos. On the back, I put another photo of us (covering the whole back) with our Buck and Doe information on it.
The post cards were on sale for $14.99 for 100. I upgraded to a glossy finish for $7 and got 100 white envelopes for $5. I think the shipping was $12. They turned out great! I can’t wait to send them out. 🙂

@sevash: I want to design my own just need to get our engagement photos done.

I DIYed my save the dates. I would agree with any previous posters who said it’s not necessarily the cheaper route, but it really depends on what you want. I designed mine in Photoshop and printed them at Kinko’s.

We used a free template online and printed them through vistaprint, and going that route for us was definitely cheaper.

@sevash: In case you’re interested, we spent about $12 on Paperless Post save the dates — after the card was viewed, our guests were able to leave their addresses for us, and the card also gave them relevant info (i.e. link to website, accommodations). Then we bought a few paper versions for the computer illiterate — easy and cheap!

We used VistaPrint too and ordered magnets. I designed the layout with a pic of the place since Fiance and I don’t do personal pics a lot. Sent them out a year in advance and people loved them! Spent less than $100 I think.

I designed my own using a free trial of Adobe Illustrator. I bought a groupon for vistaprint (which they always have! try looking at other cities if they don’t) and I made 75 magnets for around $30!

Hi everyone! After weeks of trying to decide if I should make them myself or have them made, I decided to get my save the dates from the wedding paper divas website. I had a discount code and it worked out to about $28.00 for ten. It would have cost me around $22.00 to do them myself so I figured for $6.00 I could have them done and not have to worry too much! I am thrilled with the result and just wanted to share my experience in case anyone is looking at ordering through this website!
