    I am soo happy I finally finished my STD’s! I think they came out pretty cool. I just have a few minor things to complete and then I can mail them out. I have to thank the ladies on this forum for their creativity, it was truly inspiring. I never thought I could even do something like this until I became a forum member. Thanks a bunch! I “borrowed” a few ideas, and don’t remember who they were from, but thanks!

    I had the postcards printed by Vista print with the linen finish. Here are the supplies I used:

    -Vista Print 5x4 invitation template - You can find the template online. I designed the postcards using Photoshop, and downloaded the picture side of the postcard separately along with the Photoshop file on the website.

    -Wrap around address labels - Transfer Magic.com re-stickable stickers purchased at AC Moore. I designed the label in Photoshop and added the address info in MS word. The label measures 1x5.84 inches. FYI Avery Labels also has a version of these these sticker sheets, they fall under the craft category.

    -Raffia – purchased at AC Moore

    -Envelopes – Paperandmore.com Brown solid envelopes Size A-6

    -Embosser – Neiman Marcus - $24.99 on sale. You probably can’t see it, but I embossed my home address on the back flap of the envelopes. I figured I would need to address the invites and the thank you notes anyway, so why not. I think it also gives the STD a polished look, and I was too lazy to do all that writing.

    Just one note, some of the images on the RSVP postcard did not print out as I expected even though they were on the Vista print file. I am really not sure why that happened, but I will be calling them to get that corrected. I have no complaints with Vista print other than that, they do great work. I really like the quality of the printing. I will definitely use them again.

                    They look great, but you spelled island wrong on one of the post cards.
