I made postcards on powerpoint and brought them to Staples to be made. For 200 postcards, with a glossy front and printed return address on the back it was like $75.00. Full color and whatnot. I bought a package of clear labels and used them for the guests addresses. Staples was really helpful and even redid my design for me a couple times till I was happy with it.

I made postcards too.  Created the template on powerpoint, you can add multiple pics that way, and then uploaded it on snapfish.

I did STD postcards that I designed/personalized and ordered on VistaPrint (http://www.vistaprint.com). You can look for coupons online (and if you sign up on their website you get tons of freebies!) and I think I paid like, $30 for 250 postcards.

i’ll bet getting my STD postcards from vistaprint, too. 100 postcards for free and just $3 or so to upload your own image (aka, the "back" on the postcard). and shipping’s about… $7? so less than $10 for 100 postcards.

The postal services also does postcards.  You can upload your image and even you addresses, they mail them directly to your guest for you.  One of my friends did this for her Save-The-Date Cards recently and they were glossy, high quality and she didn’t have to worry about addressing them and mailing them.

I used the postal service’s site as well.  The direct link is http://www.premiumpostcard.com.  The results were great.  I was able to upload the picture I wanted to use on the front of the card, layout the text on the back and then merge my address list from an excel file.  The site does all the work for you and they are created, postaged and mailed directly from the producer in Arizona.  Our guests thought they were great.  It was about $100 for 100 postcards to be created, printed, postaged and sent.

 

If you have any questions, just let me know!

We actually did photocards. My fiancee used Photoshop to create a custom layout and then printed them using Shutterfly (.59-.69 cents each). They offer some "Save the Date" templates but we created our own so we could incorporate our colors into the background.

Hello, I went to Wal-Mart and did photocards like some people do for Christmas cards.  They were only .33 a piece!! You just upload a picture you like with a background you like. It was really simple!

We did save the date postcards at http://www.overnightprints.com – made them in adobe illustrator and converted it to pdf. Only cost $20 (google for coupons online!) for 100 postcards. 🙂

We also used vistaprint.  We uploaded one image for the front and one for the back, the cards themselves were "free," so after shipping, it ended up being about $14 for 100 cards.  We wrote personal notes on a few of them before sending, but mostly we just signed them.
