We made our STD’s ourselves and it came to $40 including all the postage, envelopes and supplies.  We bought stamps from the Post Office that had wedding rings on them, so we didn’t have the extra cost of personalized stamps.  We also made less than 20 because we’re having a small Destination Wedding wedding.  They came out pretty well, though they took a lot of work to put together!  If you have a pretty large guest list, I’d imagine STD’s can get pricey!

I got 100 std postcards done at nextdayflyers.com for $25 (including shipping). One of the icons didn’t transfer correctly so I told them and they fixed it and sent me new ones.

I spent about $150 at Wedding Paper Divas. Very happy with it, although I saw an even better one right after I sent them out 🙂

I did 100 5×7 postcards from overnightprints.com (didn’t send them all out) for about $40, plus 44 cents ea postage.

I literally laughed out loud at this post, because our Save-The-Date Cards were such a project and I would have to take quite a bit of time to quantify exactly how much we spent on them. The (LITERALLY) 8-hour day I spent at FedEx Kinko’s merely to get the front part printed was at minimum $30 (incl rental time on their computers fixing the font alignment when my pdf file MAGICALLY didn’t show up with the proper font on their computer), then there was the Papersource paper and the cardstock and the two-sided tape and the little fabric flowers and the Zots (which we had to buy twice since I magically lost the first set) to attach the fabric flowers and the magnetic strips OH YEAH and the calligraphy plus the cost of shipping them to/from the East Coast calligrapher….

Please don’t make me add it all up. plus the actual postage, I think I don’t want to know. 🙂

Our photographer made them for us.  We spent $55 on 75 of them, including the envelopes.  Probably about $26 for postage.  So total: around $81.

We did 125 magnets with other info that we put in the envelope. They probably ended up costing us about $300 total. But everyone loved them!!

If I can do STD’s for under $100, then I’ll do them…. but so far, we’ve just been spreading the date by word of mouth!

$0.00.  I did the online slideshow and emailed them to our guests (it was sort of like  a wedding website, save the date thingie all in one with accommodation information and more).  The guests LOVE IT!

we got 175 cards on linen paper and envelopes with a design we created on them from zazzle for $95 including shipping (crazy 75% off coupon right after christmas–we probably don’t need 175, but we erred on the too many side since the coupon was so good and we were too lazy to count # households on our lists then, and we were working against the clock before the coupon ran out!). then we spent like $50 or something on postage (plain stamps with the king and queen of hearts design–we’ll probably have extra, which we’ll use for thank yous, etc). and then we bought a custom return address stamp off etsy for $30. so, $175, but that’s way including all the extras we won’t use (we’re sending 126 max)

I had wanted to just customize some nice ones online, which would have run around $100.  My mother wanted to go all out, so we ended up at Lion in the Sun, where we (she) spent almost $400 on them.  But to be fair, they look amaaaaaaazing.
