herrera2016:  Check out Vistaprint or Shutterfly (although Shutterfly prints their GIANT logo on the bottom and don’t offer a way to remove it). 

You can definitely hand write addresses, but I found it was SOOOoo much easier to just set up an Avery template on Word and go from there. You can reuse those addresses for the invitations, thank you cards, christmas cards, etc. I used the clear address labels from Avery – just make sure you get the correct ones for your printer – inkjet or laser. 

I haven’t heard anything about smudging through the mail, but I’ve received some really nice, heavy matte linen finish announcements/invites/STDs and they arrived perfectly fine!

cooperlove:  I also agree! I got our through Vistaprint on BlackFriday for 50% off.  They also twisted my arm on the adorable envelope seals too.  They were a must when you don’t want to lick all those suckers closed.  I just hand printed my addresses, I don’t believe they have to be as formal as the invites.  If you have a wedding website, I would include it.  We’ve actually had 20 people already RSVP so we have an idea of how many more people we could invite.  

PS You don’t send them to everyone if you don’t want to.  We are a little tight on space but wanted all our extended family to know from out of state, so we’re just waiting to send them invites later on.

I added text to a photo of Fiance and I and printed off 50 of them using Shutterfly. The total was slightly less than $8 and that included shipping (with a coupon, of course).

…However, you get what you pay for… I left .33″ of margin around the text on the photo and it still got cut off. (And no, it was NOT cut off in the preview when they give options to crop.)

Vistaprint is great.  We printed 150+ magnet Save the Dates through there and were very happy with both the price ($120) and the result (quick shipping, great layout).  

And do magnets!! They’re really easy to just put on a fridge.
