- Wedding: September 2013 - Castle Farms, Charlevoix, MI
I’m looking to get my STD’s. I would prefer a postcard, but I need to include hotel information because it is technically a destination wedding and they need to book hotels early. I plan on using one or more of the engagement photos on it and, like most, I don;t want to spend a fortune.

I got mine at vistaprint.com for just the cost of the shipping. If you sign up for the “business” emails and stay away from the wedding one, you will get tons of offers every few days for free stuff. That is how I did mine. I suggest having a seperate email for stuff like this because they send so many offers.

I designed mine and had them printed through VistaPrint. I will tell you, mine were oversized postcards, and I wish I had just put them in envelopes and I would really suggest that to you. I think some of them didn’t get noticed because they were mixed in with junk mail. Plus, you have more room to add additional information when you have the whole back side to print on instead of leaving space for the address.
Just my opinion, I know a ton of people do postcards and love them. If I had mine to go back and do over, I would have put them in envelopes. It would have added MAYBE $5 and hardly any extra time.

I agree with the Vistaprint option. Watch out for the $17 for $70 groupons. I got 40 postcard Save the Dates and 80 christmas party invitations with envelopes for the $17. Super cheap.
Also if you are uncertain about having too much information on your STD, do a free wedding website. I use WeddingWire and it’s really good and easy to use. That way you can direct your guests to the website for hotel info. Or you can do an insert which should be very inexpensive via Vistaprint, especially if you do the Groupon! They come up all the time so watch the Bee, there are always notifications.

I designed mine on Photoshop and printed them on magnets at Staples.

We designed ours and had them printed locally because they were pretty simple — a photo and a bit of text with the date!

We ordered our save the date postcards from Wedding Paper Divas! Their products are amazing, and they have coupons all the time. We loved them so much, we just ordered our invitations through them as well 🙂

My guy designed them and we used Vistaprint- it was really cheap and easy to use. We also threw some vintage stamps on there I bought off of ebay for postage.

We did postcards using engagement photos through Wedding Paper Divas. We had a 20% or 25% off coupon so they weren’t too expensive, and they turned out beautifully!

We got ours from magnetstreet as well. We ordered them a few weeks ago and I had a 20% off and free shipping coupon. I’m usually up for a DIY project but I could not make a STD for the life of me. This way, was a lot easier for me…

I designed my own and printed them through postcards.com- they cost me 25 dollars (with shipping) for 100 of them and they had print on both sides. They were 100% customizable so i could add whatever text and pictures or colors i wanted!
here they are 🙂

Wedding Paper Divas. We did a magnet and had a coupon code for 25% off. They did a really nice job and I talked with their design specialist several times to make a few changes and they were really, really nice and responsive.
