Starting to browse Save-The-Date Cards and invites so I’m looking for some good sites to check out. I know of Vistaprint, American Wedding, and Wedding Paper Divas. I’ve looked at Etsy too, but there’s almost too many to choose from. I’m looking for matching Save-The-Date Cards, invites, menu cards, and rsvp’s, along with a card for additional (mostly hotel) info. Our colors are orange and pink so any site I can customize the colors on would be great. Theknot.com has set my budget for $1050 for all stationary but I don’t want to spend anywhere near that! I’m thinking $400 at most, but less would be great. TIA!

I spent just over $500.00 at Wedding Paper Divas. That includes my Save the Dates, Invites, Enclosure Cards and RSVP Cards (and all the required envelopes of course). It would have been closer to $450.00 if I hadn’t ended up over-ordering the STD’s by DOUBLE. I was over-excited…what can I say?? 😛
ETA: Zazzle has always been one of my favorite go-to’s for invites…so check them out as well.

I found a designer on etsy who will send me my custom STD in a PDF file so I can use my Vistaprint Groupon to get them printed. She also has matching invitations. I’d narrow the etsy search down by keywords (colors, themes) and search then. You can inquire if the seller can custom make you sets of things, too.

I used Minted for my save the dates and love them. Haven’t ordered invitations yet, but we’ll probably do Minted or Etsy.

Wedding paper divas was great…very fast, easy to work with them. They made us a few proof options. The price was reasonable, and i was very happy with the quality. Cost about $350 for our invites, thank you cards, rsvps, and place cards.

I’m using Reaves Engraving….so far so good! Best prices I could find for letterpressing and so far have been responsive. Have not received them yet but I just ordered a week ago!

Another vote for WPD as well. They were speedy and the invitations came a little earlier than the expected arrival time (although, we are in the same state). The prices were reasonable IMO and the paper quality is really good. I received a lot of compliments on mine from both males and females and my Fiance and I couldn’t be happier with them. I liked being able to do the online chat with them rather than always picking up a phone or waiting for an email response. They also have specials and discount codes so be sure to look for one before placing your order. I also like that they let you order additional pieces later on at the same or lower price as your original order. This was helpful since I apparently miscalculated and ended up with not enough invitations. I also liked that we could get samples, which really helped us narrow down our choices. Depending on the design you pick out, you could also get a matching wedding website, which we did.
The only problem we had was that some of the white envelopes that they sent us were not stuck together enough so it felt apart, so to speak. However, I had plenty of scrapbooking adhesive (which I used to put together my suite) so I just re-sealed it back together myself. This only happened about twice which isn’t bad considering we had like 200 envelopes in total.
They packed everything well and securely so everything arrived fine and dried. The cards/envelopes are shrink-wrapped prior to going into the box.

I used Exclusively Weddings and was VERY happy with how they turned out. I thought their prices were a little better than WPD. The paper quality was great! I paid $250 for a set of 75- outer envelopes with my return address embossed, lined inner envelopes, invite w/ embossed floral border, reception card, rsvp envelope with my address embossed. I wanted a very classic envelope, so it may depend on what you’re looking for. I know people who have used WPD and VistaPrint and have also been happy with them, so I think you have some good choices available.
