Postcards have been pretty popular style, but there are tons that aren’t, and lots of websites to order from. A few that come to mind:

vistaprint

Shutterfly

Minted 

There’s also etsy & local companies. I got mine on vista (they often have 40-60% off sales), and they were not postcard style.

Where have you been looking? I’m not sure if by “like a postcard” you mean the standard 4×6 rectantuglar printed card?  If so, what sort of invitation do you want?

I played around on Minted while trying to decide what sort of style I wanted with invitationa because their interface lets you customize the text online… for example, I was able to determine quickly that some styles wouldn’t work due to things like the length of a full name or the name of the venue (because it looked silly, had too much text, etc.)

Once I had a good idea of what sort of style I wanted, I wound up spending a lot of time looking at invitations on Etsy and I ordered a bunch of samples.

honeyybunny :  Shutterfly has 100’s if not 1000’s of different styles, and no, not all of them are postcard style. They have 2 different standard sizes as well as Tri-fold. Are you even looking at these websites? 

Maybe you have something specific in mind? If that’s the case, you should probably work with a local designer so you can have them make your vision come to life.

We created ours through Vistaprint! Great quality, customer service, and very customizable. We designed the invitation suite layout on Word and had them printed on linen-finish cardstock (5×7”). RSVPs were on standard 3.5×5” linen-finish cardstock. We also designed our custom monogram together on Photoshop and had it made into a rubber stamp that we then used with embossing powder for that little extra something!

I actually got mine on Etsy too!  The woman was super nice to work with too, and allowed me to make several tweaks before I placed my order.  I’m sure there are lots of other vendors on Etsy who could help you too!
