@khamilton:  I made my own in a program.  But ive since seen etsy people have them.  I think you can even order just the download for some of them if you want to print them yourself.  Also… check out vistaprint, because they have lots of designs and they often have coupon codes for freebies too. (like 25 postcards for free)  If you sign up for them you will get email coupons all the time.

@khamilton:  Also… I didnt know this… but if you have your heart set on a postcard for its look…. make sure you go to the Post office first to see what stamp they have out now for postcards.  They told me they only issue one design in post card stamps a year and when I went for my wedding invite rsvps they only had Hawaiian shirts.  So NOT the look i was going for… so I bought regular stamps for them!  Figures NOW they come out with the perfect design…. argh.

This post should help to get you started on DIY.

Also, for printing people list Card & Pockets and Vistaprint on here. I use a local university (they usually print for the public at insanely low prices).

As you start to DIY a design for your suite post it up here and be open to advice the Bees give you. Usually those of us who hang out in ‘paper’ are already designers and can help you with a few aesthetic touch-up ideas. Just post something everytime you have a question or a hard choice to make and the bees will help!

Also, if I am stuck with wording or a design challenge I go to wedding paper divas and minted to get some new ideas. It helps to see other invites – then I can apply the ideas in my own special way.
