    I had no idea that you could do so much with VistaPrint. I am definitely going to go check out their site!! Just read this weekend, too, that they are one of the top 100 places to work in Massachusetts.

      Hi Ladies

      I have been tossing up with a number of things to do for the wedding with Vistaprint, so I wanted to try out all the things - so made little stocking fillers for people

      Click the image to open in full size.

      Calendar - We have a calendar of all my fav pics of FI and I for next year - LOVE IT - the photos are on glossy stock and the dates are on Matt so you can easily write on it. I am definately making up more of these for family and friends whenever they are free! Hot tip - try and make sure you get a deal where the photo upload charge is free as well as the calendar - I got stung there but noticed two days later that they were both free on the next vista email...

      Desk Calendar - So happy with this for my best friend - its all photos of us travelling over the past 5 years - I love it.

      Address labels - Made chrissy ones for us and some for FMIL too, again very happy. I'd probably look at using more of the space next time tho, there is a lot of room on the right hand side of each label...

      Postcards - I want to design some RSVP's using the postcards so go tester ones - we will put these ones in our OOT bags for people send home. Was a little dissapointed that they weren't thinker. They definately weren't as think as traditional postcards, however they weren't flimsy either.

      Rack cards (blue) and Invites (red) - I have a suspicion that Rack cards are invites were exactly the same - and I was right. Except you get 50 free rack cards and 10 free invites. You do get plain envelopes free with the invites - but I think I am happy picking them up from office works or something... So, quality exactly the same. The Rack cards are gloss on the front and Matt on the back. I chose Matt for the invites, so they are Matt both sides. You have to go with Gloss for the Rack cards, so that would be my only warning - I think they look great tho and am really happy to use them for invites and menus and programs too.

      Pen - it was free so I got one as a pressie to FI with his footy nickname on it. just a little fun.

      Anyway - hope this helps some of you with deciding on Vista! I'm definately going for it - now to master Illustrator and I will be all set :)!

          DH helped me design and order these today. We wanted something simple but liked the idea of using pictures since so many of the people we invite won't be able to come-we just want them to know they're included. We don't have a border around them so use your imagination :-)

          Invitations (Qty 60 6x9 ) with envelopes-front side only

          For RSVPs we're using postcards. (Qty 100 Standard size)

          We're a little late ordering so I did the 3 business day rush shipping which cost as much as the entire order.... Total spent $68 ($32 for product, the rest for shipping)

          Oh, and I got a free mouse pad for my office too...

            I love Vistaprint. I love the tote bags by the way... they are awesome. Got them for the MOB MIL and MOH as well as me. Now we are ordering rack cards as thank you cards... fit in normal envelopes. :)

                  For the door hangs, I used the RACK CARDS because they are made of hard card stock, like a postcard. They are also the perfect size for a door hang!

                    What kind of messages do people put on the door hangers for their guests? Just "Do Not Disturb" or are there other fun things to do with them?

                    We've decided to do jamaican jerk seasoning for our favors so I printed a receipe for Jerk Chicken on business cards I got from VistaPrint. I've also decided to do my AHR invites and RSVP cards thru VistaPrint as well.
