So I have just been messing around online looking at some invitations, our wedding is still almost two years out so we are not ready to order. I was wondering if anyone has used Vistaprint for invites? Good? Bad? Any advice? I found a design both FH and I love and it is within our budget but I have never ordered from Vistaprint before and I was looking for some advice.
Any other ideas as for online places to get invites with personal experience?

I used Vistaprint for our invites, save the dates, return address stickers, programs, etc. However, I used minted for the escort cards cause they’ll print the guests names. They were great! You can usually wait until there’s a 50% off sale and get them super cheap. I did the linen finishes for the upcharge and it was really good quality. People were shocked when I said it was vistaprint.

Yah I had no problem with them. They actually came a bit off centre. Realistically it was probably my fault, but they sent a new set free of charge.
Sign up for their emails so you know when it’s discount time.

I loved vistaprint. one of my BMs is a graphic designer so she designed my Save-The-Date Cards and invitation suite and we used Vista Print to print.
I also used them recently for my son’s 1st birthday. I used something they had instead of designing myself.
For all of our wedding stuff, I paid to ungrade the paper stock. The quality of the paper changed on the response cards halfway through when i was stuffing envelopes. I called VP, they overnighted me replacements (at no charge).
I would do business with them again and again.

Haven’t used them yet but we intend to – just got a free wedding sample pack from them (I think anyone can get one) and are happy enough with the quality for the price 🙂 Hoping to go with the recycled matte.
There was one that was printed a bit off centre (the solid borders on the edge weren’t even), but otherwise only had an issue with one of the envelopes where the relevant card didn’t fit in because the envelope bottom had been glued badly lol, but I assume we’d be able to get replacements if necessary.

I used them for our engagement invites and I was really happy with the quality (in my culture its tradition to have a large E-party). We got 80 invites and 80 RSVP, upgraded to linen finish ($32 for both). In total we paid around $140 for the prints. Pretty affordable since some of the companies I was looking to get invites with was up to $900!! I paid $40 for the design on Etsy and had them all printed with Vista. I would use them again!
And calligraphy is so expensive! I went with good old fashioned printing and tracing 🙂 (this was a test run ignore the crappy stamp placement)

I used Vistprint for our invites, and they turned out great for the price. I read a lot of reviews and went with the “linen” paper upgrade based on advice. It was well worth the money! They also offered matching thank you cards and address labels, so it was easy to get everything at once.

We used Vistaprint for our engagement party invitations and Save-The-Date Cards but I used Wedding Paper Divas for our wedding invitations. Nothing against Vistaprint at all – they just didn’t have any designs we liked or the designs didn’t cover everything we needed (RSVPs, info card, placecards, etc). Everyone commented on how nice our e-party invites and Save-The-Date Cards were so we had no complaints.

I used VP for all of our paper goods and was very happy with how they turned out. I bought when they had sales too so I got them for a steal!

I used them for my invitations and they are great ! The customer service is amazing , i spent 1 hour with them on the phone for them to help me with the design and everything and it came out great. They even gave me a coupon ! I regret using weddingpaperdivas for my STD It cost me double for them than my invites ! Vistaprint is the best for price !

I love Vistaprint. Signup with them and wait until you can get a discount.
Good customer service. My invitations arrived without envelopes, so I called them and they quickly sent over a box of envelopes, no questions asked.

LOVE vistaprint! We used them for t-shirts and they turned out so good that I decided to use them for invitations too. Originally I was designing my own but they sent me a 50% off coupon so it cost me a little over 40$ for 100 invites, RSVPs, and envelopes. I just chose the standard card stock it comes with and honestly they were even more beautiful than I expected.
The envelopes are a little thin, but I had a bunch of kraft paper envelopes so I used those instead. I tied some twine around them to spice them up a little. I’ve gotten so many messages/ texts already from family members and friends saying they can’t believe how beautiful the invites are and that I got them for so cheap.
It seems issues with vistaprint are mostly with people uploading their own designs. If you’ve found one on the site that you like, you should be totally fine! Good luck!

bcrowe : I’m going to use them for my invites and RSVP cards. I ordered Save the Date magnets from them and they came out great =)
There is usually always a sale on too, which is great.

We went with them for our bridal shower and wedding invitations and were really impressed with the quality! I will say that the bridal shower invites were cut a little crooked and showed a line of blue when there was no blue on the invites. I emailed them and they quickly fixed the problem and sent new invites! Great customer service!
I suggest ordering the free sample kit so you can get a feel for which paper weight is your favorite. We didn’t end up upgrading them because the others actually felt cheaper to us! Definitely wait for their 40% off sales!
