Ok everyone I designed a rough draft invite and STD’s very super excited but now I’ve been thinking OK- how am I going to print this. So I went on to vistaprints site and I was upset by the paper choices… Is there anywhere else to print to online, or ? I was looking for a better quality that my at home printed but if I need to upgrade my printed to get it done atleast on the invatations I could do that.
I will attach a pic of kind of what I am aiming for. As far as the STD I will probabily still go through vista print since they are pictures.
Advice, help, anything appreciated 🙂

You could try Staples or FedEx Office–you have may have to go into a store to consult with their copy people, but they have never failed me.
Staples is even printing mine on my particular type of paper, that I supplied after consulting with them.

We printed at FedEx/Kinkos. They have tons of paper choices. I was very pleased with the final quality.

FedEx Office and Staples are sometimes really picky about the paper and may not let you bring your own in. But many smaller, local print shops will let you bring your own paper. I’d ask around and see who can give you a good deal.

I am having this same issue with where to print my invitation suite… I have a 5 x 7 invitation that I want on nicer paper.. and then 2 4×6 postcards that could be on regular paper, and a moo card. I’ve priced a variety of places…
Cat Print has been recommended quite a bit and offer lots of paper options and will send a proof so that may be a good way for you to go.
I’ve used overnight prints quite a bit in the past (and I used them for my save the date postcards). Just give yourself plenty of time to print because it isn’t actually ‘overnight’.
I also ran upon smartpress.com – which offer some different paper options and are cheaper than catprint.
I quoted some local printers which are about double what I can get online, but you pay for the convenience. Hopefully that helps you! I may look into Staples/Copyworks myself and see how they compare.

I love Cards and Pockets…you send your file, tell them what you want, adn they give you a quote. You can order a sample too to make sure you like it. They’ve got tons of paper options and great customer service too.

are you looking to print on Kraft paper?
I don’t know how many you have to print – but I print on Kraft paper for packaging ( when i am doing small runs) on my epson printer right at home. I know paper source carries Kraft paper ( pre-cut)
WHen i have larger quantities to do I send my files to CopyCraft they are in Texas actually and do an AMAZING job everytime. They will be happy to quote a job for you for printing! they can do digital or offset.
