We Photoshopped text onto an engagement photo and printed 5x7s at Costco for 39 cents each.  We could also have done 4x6s for 19 cents each.

I used  vista print for ours.  they let you adjust the picture to it works for what you need on their site so that helped.  They didn’t out well and they were pretty inexpensive $40 total for 100 and shipping.  Shipping was almost half the cost.  Also watch your edges, I didn’t drag the photo down far enough so I have a light white border on the bottom.

We did a postcard and printed them through Cat-print with their one-sided glossy paper.

Also, since making those, I’ve discovered Moo cards. They make high quality prints. You can actually make postcards, and have a set of different pictures on each. We have mini-moo cards (half-sized business cards) that we are using for our website info in our invites. They are thick, the printing is really great and give you lots of options if you can’t decide on photos!

Mrs Pretzel used these for her second reception postcard invites: http://www.weddingbee.com/2010/11/15/diy-wedding-invitation-ideas/

@Lindsaygooding: Yay! Glad you like them! Well, I went to vistaprint and found out the dimensions of a postcard and made sure that the picture extended into the bleed dimensions so that I wouldn’t get any white borders. Then I just cropped my photo so that it would fit into those dimensions. I used the text tool to place my text on the front. For the back, I think I actually just used word, again making sure to use the correct dimensions. I downloaded some fonts from dafont.com for free and used those for the text and glyphs. That’s really it! Let me know if you have any other questions!!

@peaches1038: Did you write in the addresses on the envelopes are did you type them out on labels?

@Lindsaygooding: I didn’t use envelopes because they are postcards ; ) I hand wrote them on the lines.
