They are business card size but they are cute. I did postcards and magnets from Vistaprint for $90 total. We used our own picture for the postcard but one of their pics for the magnets... let me see if I have as picture for you...

 

Here are our magnets - they are business card sized:

You know, I just thought of this---- but check and see if there's an art school in your area. You could probably get the name of a professor who would recommend someone in graphic design who could custom make the design for you. Then you could just buy blank stationary and print them yourselves, or even take them to a print shop and have them print them all.... College students would probably love the opportunity for making some extra money.

I did my first save the date through Magnet street for about $150 and my postcards were about $70 from Kinko's, I did my own invites and probably spent around $300. Then postage makes that another $200 or so.

I used Prim and Pixie for my

save the dates. I am trying to take some cute pics to post. They were $2 ea. Also, they told me if I purchase invites plus save the dates and 2 other items (menus/programs) they would give me a discounted package price. Not bad IMO.

My STD magnets were about $65 for 75 magnets and looked like this:

They were about the size of a business card, very cute and totally reasonable.

 

My postcards to remember to rsvp to the STD website were $30 for 100 and also were better than I could have imagined for the price for sure. I designed them myself.

My invitations were priced individually at $4 each set and I totally love them, good quality, and very fast. I kept changing designs and fonts and got to see like 5 proofs before I chose the final one. I do calligraphy so I did my own on the envelopes.

I wouldn't spend too much for something most people throw away, but if you're big on having the best of things it may be worth it to you. My co-worker spent $12 per invitation and they were amazingly beautiful - it still ended up in the trash can though elefant.gif

All that for $80? That's great! Quick question about the postcard - I haven't heard about sending postcards. Is that something new? Are they for RSVP purposes?

Yes on the back there is RSVP information. I'm sending them with the STDs and a letter. Plus at the time I ordered them 100 were FREE, so its a deal. Postage is just going to be the killer.

What I did was sent out std magnets and a letter saying rsvp on the website. About 90 days later I sent postcards reminding them to rsvp on the website if they hadn't.

I used the postcard as a way to have people save the date and check out our website. I've gotten a good idea of who's planning on coming who isn't based on conversations since the cards were sent. The formal RSVP will go out with the invites.
