I’m doing etsy i’m sure because i refuse to pay minted prices!  So I’ll buy the design from etsy and then have it printed on matte quality paper from a local print shop!  A friend of mine owns a print shop and is able to print 100 Save the Dates for $45.

We did Zazzle – worked really well for us, and managed to order during a 60% off sale so we saved a fortune. Btw, there’s 50% off at the moment with code CARDSALEZAZZ (until Thursday I think). 

I loved our experience with Zazzle, and the ease of having it all done in one place. But on the flip side, we ordered our STD’s from Etsy and printed via vistaprint (again, duirng a 70%! off sale). I loved them too, we just had to put a little more thought into where to print and how. If you’re considering Etsy, maybe have a look at Creative Market – it’s a designers website, but you find that a lot of the print at home style invites on Etsy, the sellers have just bought straight from Creative Market and marked the price up. So, definitely worth having a look – and as long as you have access to Photoshop or Illustrator, dead easy to edit the files at home yourself, probably for a fraction of the cost. 

I think no matter what you decide they’ll be lovely! We’re dead happy with our invites and our experience with Zazzle. Some would absolutely consider them generic, but they match our summer country wedding perfectly <3

queenbatgirl :  got the invitation from Minted (made some changes to the design so it was semi-custom). Got the RSVP tag from ForYourParty (online rsvps, so there was a luggage tag with the info). Hand painted the envelope liners and calligraphied the envelopes myself. Envelopes bought from paper source. Tied it all together with bakers twine. So….a little bit of everywhere? Lol

I got mine off of Etsy, and the physical invites were mailed to me. This is the shop I used: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LoveofCreating. The invites came out amazing, even though they were way above what I wanted to spend originally. I have no regrets! They did take a while to ship though, and since I am in the US and they’re from Canada they got held up at customs for a few days. I ordered so far in advance it didn’t matter, though. At first I was worried that I made a mistake by paying so much, but when I had them in hand I realized that they were exactly what I had wanted.

We made our own! Or I should say my husband did lol. He is so artistic and made them custom for us. I wish I could post a pic, but try to stay anonymous. He designed them and then we had them printed, so they were unique and didn’t cost an arm and a leg!

Vistaprint. The only thing I would have done differently is upgrade to a fancier paper.
