Im doing them! The only thing I dont like is that unless you get custom stamps the stamps are ugly and they only have 1 design.

I’m planning to do it, but I’m DIY’ing and I’m concerned that the cardstock might not be thick enough. I actually mailed a test one to my Maid/Matron of Honor today to see how it ends up and if it makes it there!

@CorgiTales: According to cardsandpockets or is it paperandmore, you should get at least 80lb cardstock.

I got my invites & rsvp’s on etsy they were less then $2 per set with a printed envelope!

The USPS has on their website what the dementions need to be.

We used Send n Seal invites that were made of recycled paper with a postcard RSVP and I couldn’t be happier. It saved us a lot on postage and we got a lot of compliments on how cute the invites were without killing trees with all the envelopes (no offense to envelope lovers), just wasn’t for us. The RSVP cards withheld the post office & traveling very well, none of them were ripped or smeared at all! I wanted something easy & simple and this was it. Here are our Invites

We used postcard RSVPs loved them. I loved that we didn’t have to open anything when we got them back, and that they were super easy to file and organize, and saved us on postage! Plus they save a little bit of paper!

@Mrs. Meowerson: there is no catch! I did that for my save the dates and they turned out great, just had to pay for shipping! I can’t use them for my invite RSVPs though because it doesn’t go with my invitation suite. 

 

@bRooklynRocks: interesting, i didn’t see that! I did get 80# linen cardstock. hopefully it is okay!

We used RSVP postcards and I really liked them. The seller on etsy that I used prestamped the postcards and that was really helpful! It was also a lot cheaper! The only thing that was hard is that we would have to shake out our mail because they would get stuck inside of other things! All in all though, so worth it!

I had not even thought about a postcard RSVP but I really like the idea!

@Mrs. Meowerson:you don’t have to get them in glossy and they have some suite available.  Sometimes you have to do your own searching for it.  But if you have an invitaion suite already done, you will have to upload.  If you want to print the addresses at home, get some extra.  I went through a few getting the settings right on my printer so the ink didn’t smudge.  I went with the glossy as I liked the look but I made some of the Out of Town information cards using the postcards and went with the linen, they looked great.

WARNING:  Don’t sign up for the bridal samples, they will put you on the bridal list and you will only get their bridal offers and they are not nearly as good.  I did that and ended up having to set up a seperate email the had to sign up again.  I only use that email for their business offers (that I use for wedding stuff).
