Kinkos lets you upload and print online.  Their resume paper is decent quality thick stuff.  They have a really fast turnaround too.  I’m placing an order with them tomorrow, so I’ll give you an official review after that!

i had looked at staples and they are very expensive.  they wanted like $3 per page printed.  I would check other places if I were you – FedEx Kinkos might be better.

I designed my own save the dates (I used word and made it into a pdf), and had them printed at catprint.com. The customer service was really good (I had a mistake and realized it after I submitted the order, so I called the very next morning and the guy helped to fix it for me!)

I’ve seen others on Weddingbee mention that when they printed their invitations that they had a proof made so that they could see it before they ordered their whole order.

Catprint has TONS of paper options, from cotton, to glossy, to matte, to heavy paper, and light. You should check it out!

My local paper store said we could bring in a design on a disc or flash drive and they’d print for us.  You might check out a local invitation store.

@octoberosa:  I ordered my invitations from Kinkos today, and they were done two hours later!  The card stock is the thick stuff you want to print on.  I asked about full color printing on their card stock, and I think they said it would be $1.36 per 8.5×11 sheet (I could be off by a few pennies because my memory sucks).  Depending on the design of your invitations, you might be able to fit more than one invitation on a page.  The paper is decent card stock, nothing super-duper thick but normal.  The print quality is quite good from what I’ve seen.

We brought our own cardstock in to Office Max and a pdf of the design on a jump drive.  They came out great.  I definitely did a few test runs there on different cardstocks ahead of time to make sure it was what I wanted, though.

I printed online at overnightprints.com. The cardstock quality is amazing and they always have sales. I got 150 front and back full color postcard prints for my save the dates for 35 dollars shipped! They came out amazing.

I designed mine and took them to a local print shop. They were much less expensive than I thought they would be, and turned out great. Because they have a designer in house, they worked with them and gave me proofs of what they thought might look best. I was able to see as many proofs as I needed until they were perfect. I definitely recommend looking for a print shop locally!
