So, I have not gotten to my STD’s or invites yet, but I am ready to officially ask my bridal party to be in the wedding, and I made two illustrations that I want to use on a postcard… one for the girls, one for the guys.
Problem is, I don’t have access to a nice printer right now, and for this purpose, I only need 8 cards.
Does anyone know where I could get less than 10 postcards custom printed? Online, or a physical shop? It is NOT a photo, but a vector illustration that I want to print on the front, and a standard postcard format on the back. I also need a 4×6 size card.
All online options I have found either require purchasing a batch of at least 100 cards/design, OR they are sized smaller than 4×6.

Check around for some of your smaller local mom and pop printing shops. I ordered my Save-The-Date Cards from Vista Print because my printer that I always use for clients was swamped and I didn’t want to wait, but our local guy is INCREDIBLE and they can do as much or as little as you want.
Plus, you have to love supporting small businesses!

FedEx has this thing where you set up your document online and then send it to print at one of their FedEx Office stores (formerly Kinko’s). Then you just go to the location and pick them up. Not sure how much it costs but it might work for you! https://printonline.fedex.com/v3.0.1_s7/

FedEx printing is about $1.35/page for full color, as a head’s up 🙂

OfficeMax and Office Depot also have the submit online and print option. Staples may as well. They will print as little or as much as you want.

I second the local printer. Check out the Yellow Pages (in the actual phone book or online) and call to get a quote. You would be surprised at how much lower their prices are in comparison to FedEx/Kinkos

She said in the op that she only needs 8 cards, and while I used vista print as well, they have a 100 card minimum.

Use Vistaprint- but instead of their postcard option – go into their invites and use their small invitation layouts to be your postcard. They are the same size as a postcard and you can order in quantities of 10. I did this for my RSVPs and just selected a better more durable paper when ordering. I think they were around $10 for 10.
