We had our beautiful wedding on Oct. 6 and now we need to look into thank you notes. I know a lot of people are doing picture postcards as their thank yous. Where are these typically ordered? I’m not sure if we should go with this idea or purchase tradional thank you notes . Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I didn’t want to wait longer than a few weeks to express my gratitude to my overly generous guests, so I didn’t wait for a pro picture.
Our thanks you’s match our invites. I took the best of the picutres friends and family had sent me and made a small collage photo from CVS and sent those with the thank you’s. For some people that didn’t attend, I sent additional prints.

We also ordered thank you cards to match our invitations. I’ll probably put a small photo in there as well, like PP said.

Don’t photographers usually send a few teaser pics early on? Maybe request that they do that and send a certain type of pose as soon as they can so you can use it. I have heard Vistaprint has good deals quite often so check there For printing the cards.

You can’t go wrong no matter what you choose. Its really the content of the thank you card that matters 🙂
We ended up doing photo thank you cards because I wanted people who weren’t able to make it to the wedding but had sent gifts to get to see a picture of us on our wedding day. But its really your preference, like some posters above noted, they ordered thank you cards to match their invitiation suite as well, so there’s no right or wrong.
I ordered my thank you cards through Wedding Paper Divas, but there are so many sites you can choose from, like Shutterfly, Minted, Vistaprint, Zazzle, and Snapfish to list a few.

I asked my photographer for 5 edited photos of my Darling Husband and I so that I could order the cards right after the wedding. Once I had those we chose which picture to use and ordered them through Etsy.

If you want to go the photo card route, I suggest you take one of the teaser pics from your photographer, or a particular good pic from a family member or friend, and get cards printed soon by Vistaprint or another online printing site. The longer you put off thank you notes, the easier it is not to do them!

@lisaor: I got mine from overnightprints.com they are very good quality, cheap, and well done. WE used them for my parents 25th anni invites recently. The picture turned out wonderful

My photographer got me a few photos from the wedding to choose from about a week after the wedding. I designed our Thank You cards myself but then a lot of the common wedding stationery companies have really nice designs. I used Wedding Paper Diva, which were the cheapest for the quantity I needed and the paperstock is excellent. The customer service is also really good too. They have live chat (my fave!) on the web and are super responsive in general. For example, the design I uploaded was a little blurry and I got a call and email from the company about 15 minutes after I submitted it (during the afternoon) saying it was blurry but if I get them my photo, they will duplicate my custom design (for free!). These were shipped out way early than I expected too.
I would price out each of the companies PP suggested and see which ones are the best for the quantity you need. Most of these have the prices for each quantity available online. I went with the folded ones, which are pricier. The one-sided postcard-like ones are cheaper.
