My wedding is October 8, 2011 and I need to order save the date cards and invitations. I am on a budget and I would like to be able to physically see the save the date cards and invitations but the retail locations that allow you to do this are very expensive.
I have thought about ordering them online but again I would like to physically see and touch them before I order them.
Does anyone have any ideas????

Vistaprint sends a free wedding kit. It includes EVERYTHING wedding with samples of sizes, colors, and different options for paper. It was extremely helpful when I was purchasing STD’s and invites. I have already received both from VP and couldn’t be happier. I LOOOOVE VP!!! I’ve made SEVERAL purchases from them and have yet to be disappointed!

Usually most places that are inexpensive won’t create the design and then send you a sample, but I’d recommend having them custom made through this etsy seller, shopkm. She’ll send you the paper sample before she prints on it and has photos of the paper as well. 🙂 good luck!

WAIT! Before you go to vistaprint set up two different hotmail accounts. Use one to order the samples and the other to sign up for their business emails. You will get TONS of free offers from the business emails. Once you are on the wedding emails list the price really goes up as does the shipping costs. I got all my save the dates an a ton of stuff for free from the business emails and I got my invites for 90% off through a discount code I found through googling “vistaprints discount codes” I think that I went through cabin something. Whatever link you click it will give you the discounts associated with that link only.
Vistaprint will send you a digital proof if you request one. And you can download your own creation if you want.

@tksjewelry: Yes – I second all the coupon codes. I bought some from LivingSocial… For $180 (including shipping) total I got…
6 Bridesmaid or Best Man tote bags, 5 Jr Bridesmaid or Best Man totes, 100 thank you’s, 90 invites, 90 response cards, 100 Save-The-Date Cards, invite seals, E-Photo picture album, 9 custom t-shirts, Just Married car magnet, 500 return address labels, address stamp, and 50 oversized postcards with e-photos for folks who wanted them… not too shabby!
