    I just wanted to let everyone know that Staples charges $1.19/page for color copying on cardstock (even if you bring your own cardstock) - not the 49 cents that is advertised - at least in Southern California. It was really disappointing to find this out after the copying job was done! I'm hoping other BDW girls don't have to go through what I did. Wicked Bummer!

      So sorry you had to deal with that!

      Did you talk to the manager? Why the discrepancy in price? Just because it was cardstock?

        Yep - just because it was cardstock - "it uses more ink" is what I was told. Luckily I didn't have everything printed - only a minor set-back, but I didn't want anyone else to make that the same mistake I did.

          hmm, I hope I did alright with my save the dates, I did them at home with my home computer, of course I only made 40 sheets of cardstock.

            I only paid $0.49 cents when I got color copies made. I brought my own cardstock also. Maybe you should contact their corporate people?

                I've decided to do them at home! I have a photo printer & the copies look just like the ones from Staples!

                  Thanks for the tip - All we have around here are Staples (prefer OfficeMax) and i was thinking of having them print my stuff. So sorry you had to deal with the pricing. I agree you should talk to corporate - there are very few Staples i've ever been to where the customer service could even pass for being 'nice'.....
