That’s a great price! Thanks for sharing! I had the same problem as you, I did all the design work but still got crazy prices for just the printing. I ended up printing them myself I got so frustrated! I hope your post helps another bride!

i couldn’t agree with you more! catprint was awesome. my friend designed our invitation suite, which i sent to catprint to have printed. i just got my proofs in the mail, 2 days after i ordered them and they look amazing! i also had wonderful prompt customer service. also, be sure to ask for their printed sample packet, which they were more than willing to send for free (unlike some other companies i contacted).

i had printed:

110 5×7 color full-bleed invites

110 3.5×4.8 color full-bleed RSVP cards

110 5×7 front and back color printed maps

all on their lux cotton paper and all for $200 with shipping

i get my invites in a week and i’m really looking forward to it!

I also agree on CatPrint! I’ve only used them so far for our Save the Date Postcards, but customer service was so helpful in helping me with the order and even suggesting a better option for the paper – one-sided glossy. Of course!

I was already planning on going with them for our invitations, and now I’m even more convinced! We

We didn’t have any proofs made for the postcards (the imagine is slightly off-centered), but that’s my error, not there’s. But I will definitely have proofs made of our invitations!

i just got my invitations back from Catprint.  The printing is good but I wish I had ordered proofs because our blacks aren’t consistant from piece to piece.  The worst thing about it was that a couple of each set have heavy creases, probably from the cutting mechanism.  Be sure you order extras if you go with Catprint.  The good news is they’re beautiful!  I ordered their most expensive paper, the cotton texture, and it was definitely worth it to me.  They look more expensive than they were.  They shipped super fast.  I ordered on Wednesday and even though I selected 7 day shipping they shipped on Thurs and got here today (Tues).  I placed the order and 4 hours later emailed them to make a correction but they already printed!  (I now have to get them trimmed .25 inches on each side from a print shop, but that’s totally my fault!)  So for all you DIY brides out there, I can recommend Catprint but give yourself time and order proofs.

Should you order proofs for every different piece? And how do you deal with the bleed thing? I don’t exactly know what it means and had some confusion on their site about it too. I am using illustrator.
