Just got our Save the Date postcards from Vistaprint. Really happy with the the price (“free”), process, and shipping (I chose the least expensive shipping and they arrived in just a few days.)
I’m not happy with the photo quality but it’s my fault. When I uploaded the pdf for the front of the postcard it said the image was “acceptable”. It didn’t warn me that I should be striving for “excellent” and I didn’t realize that was even an option until reading more of the tips on here.
Oh, and I was glad I paid attention to where they said the cut marks would be on the card bc it did make me move text a little and I think in the end it paid off– my edges look good.
The back looks great — there were some comments about a Vistaprint logo on the back for other users… not sure if that’s still an issue but I uploaded the text on the back as a pdf and it looks perfect, and no logo.

I got both my Save-The-Date Cards and my invite sets from Vistaprint and I was very happy with my decision. My Save-The-Date Cards had pictures and while they weren’t the best quality, I was not disappointed because I knew that for the price I was paying, the quality probably wasn’t going to be the best. My invite sets were beautiful and the price could not be beat even if I did them myself.
I hope you’re not too disappointed. Vistaprint is a great resource for brides on a budget, for sure.

I agree it’s a great resource — definitely helps with our budget and without the Vistprint option we might not even have done save the dates. I should have mentioned that we’re definitely using the postcards; I just learned a valuable lesson in doing a little research first! I’m a perfectionist and it bugs me when I miss important details! I definitely hope to use Vistaprint again for more wedding printing.
Now off to buy stamps to get them in the mail before postage rates go up later this month!
