@lastlastfirst:  Thanks! We used an Etsy printable from Yellow Brick Graphics and had it printed on Catprint’s Heavy Linen Stock. We were pretty pleased with the result 🙂

Postcard postage went up from 32 cents to 33 cents on 1/27. The Aloha stamps were 32 cents so (Warning!) they are no longer accepted. I may have possibly waited to send my save the dates out until I could get my hands on the new apple stamps lol. Otherwise I would have just bought first class postage like you did.

For us our wedding is less formal than some and I wanted it to be a fun Save the Date. I made ours in word and printed them with vista. Fiance is sending them out today!

@lastlastfirst:  We sent the design directly to Catprint to have it printed. I don’t think that an at-home printer would be able to print on that stock without it really looking messy. We had to use fine tipped sharpies to write the addresses on, so that should give you an idea of how easily smudgeable the paper is. We didn’t notice any printing quality issues with Catprints products so it just made sense to have them do it. I think it cost $58 to have 75 printed (they actually sent 100) plus we paid $30 for the printable, so $88 all together.
