I see that they have stock invitations you can order, but I am curious as to what other items did you use to create your papergoods for your wedding?
Did you use postcards for your save-the-dates?
Larger Postcards for your programs?
Business Cards for your Escort Cards?
I would love to hear your ideas!
Anything to help everyone save a buck because we ALL know how they like to charge twice as much for everything as soon as the word “wedding” is added to the title!

I wait until Vistaprint has a 40% off sale (with free shipping is a major bonus) before I print. I printed our thank yous already (basically invitations where I uploaded my own image) and I will be printing my invitations and RSVPs as soon as I get the proofs back. My mother is printing my shower invitations there too. Closer to the wedding date, I’ll be printing menu cards and eventually thank you cards afterwards.
I’m having a pretty formal wedding, but invitations just aren’t really that important to me. I don’t feel like I need pocketfolds or belly bands or rhinestones or any of that stuff. For me, Vistaprint has been AWESOME.

I love Vista Print. I used them for my Rehearsal Dinner invites, my mom used them for my shower invites and my sister used them for my bachelorette party invites. I got my shower thank you’s from there too.
I’ve gotten personal checks (with my new name on them) and return address labels (for invitations, thank you’s, every day life) from there, I also just ordered invitations for a BBQ we’re having this summer.
So it’s a good site for wedding stuff, but also for every day items.

I just got my groupon/vistaprint shipment in & was amazed at the quality. We ended up getting oversized postcards for our invitations (too large to mail with postcard postage so we also got envelopes), regular postcards for rsvp’s, and tote bags I personalized with our wedding location. If I didn’t have the $17 for $70 coupon thought I would have went with moo.com as they let you order smaller quantities and I really didn’t need the 100 min. vistaprint had but it was a steal with the coupon so whatever, I’ll just have LOTS of leftovers!

I’ve used VP in the past for address labels and cards, but for the wedding I designed our save the dates, invites/RSVP cards/reception cards, and thank you cards and had them printed through there using Groupons.

We used VistaPrint for our Home Address Labels
For our Married Visiting / Social Cards
Hope this helps,

We used the rack cards for our menus and programs. For the programs I used both sides, with the ceremony on one side and the bridal party on the other.
We found a business card with a design that complemented our invitation set so that we could include guest transportation cards in our invites.
We used the tri-fold brochures for our welcome letter. Each panel had a different category, like “Local Restaurants” “Wine & Spirits” “Places to Visit” and “Wedding Weekend Information” plus a page with a thank you message.
We used the “fork & knife” themed cards for our rehearsal dinner and day-after brunch invitations.
We also bought our thank you cards there, but only to get overselves over the threshold to use a Groupon so they were pretty generic.

Bought 50 save the dates/envelopes, 60 invites/envelopes (glossy), 60 rsvps/envelopes, 140 return labels, 100 seating placecards and expedited shipping for $100. All coordinating, a preset design bundle of theirs.

I love them! We used them for our large magnet save the dates. They had a photo of us on them and looked amazing! We ordered 100 of them and they were all perfect. Everyone loved them.
And we just ordered our invitations and return address labels from them. We picked the normal matte paper. We had them send us free samples to see the different kinds of paper. The basic paper seemed good to us, but the higher quality ones were so nice too!
Also, we used two 70% off Groupons. Doing that, you have to pay for shipping unless you go $25 over the $70 amount. So it might be easier to look up a 50% off code + free shipping that is always out there. =)

I ordered 10 of our custom-designed invitations as a test to see how they’d look. They made a mistake on the printing and had to redo them. Other than that they looked pretty good.

I love Vistaprint. My fiance is a musician and I always get his business and post cards from there. I use the $17 for $70 Groupon (which I just got another email for today). I got our Save The Dates from Vistaprint and I will be buying the groupon to get our Thank You cards after the wedding. You can’t beat the deal.

We used Vista Print for Invites & RSVP’s (which turned out awesome! Fiance and I love them) I’m also going to use them for our menu cards, seating cards and thank you notes.
We’re going to use them also for invites (or tickets, whatever you call them) for FI’s stag and for one of my bridal showers, along with that will be the matching place cards RSVP’s and thank you notes.
On another note, at work we’ve ordered the business cards they make and they turned out great!

If you did invites – did you use linen finish or the premium 100lb?
