Vista Print questions????

Recommended Posts

So I have been hearing a lot of great things about Vista Print and thought I would give them a try. Well my wedding colors are pink and brown and we want our save the dates to be our wedding colors. There is an option to upload a design and photo and create your own but I don't know how to do it. Can someone helphuh.gif?

Which part don't you know how to do? How to design your own? Or how to upload the design you already have created somewhere else?

Personally, I create everything in Photoshop, but I know a bunch of people have used PowerPoint.

Well I don't really like any of the designs for the STD's so I was thinking of uploading my own design. I really don't even know how to make my own design. How could I do that? Also, the STD's on Vistaprint are not as cheap as I thought. If I upload my own design and create my own is it cheaper?

If VP doesn't work and you can't find something on there that you like, you may have to make your own. Try Michaels, Walmart or Target - they may have some DIY products you could try and all you have to do is print out the information.

Thanks for the advice. Vista Print is great but since I am looking for something with my wedding colors I might have to do it myself. I'm excited!!! It's a great way to add personal touches......can't wait!

Also alot of girls have used postcards for their save the dates from VP. Theres a better deal on postcards than STD and you can still upload your own design.

I, too had trouble creating my own design. I am just not that creative. I had Sarah Sprouille design us one (from this site) for only $5. It's attached to my signature. Now, we have used it to make thank you cards, return address labels and T-shirts from vista print.

If you sign up for emails they send you discounts almost every day so you can get items for free or at a great price. I have mostly used their images for my items........address labels, postcards, t-shirts and welcome letters.

I am really trying to save money on the stuff that I use just to dispense information.

I used Vista Print for my STD's for free.

 

I used their free business cards as an insert with my registry and wedding website info.

 

I used their note cards with my design on front for thank you cards. I left the inside blank and I will write personal notes in each one. I get an offer to get 10 free at a time. I have done it twice so far. I am waiting for the other free offers to get the remainder of my thank you cards free. I did have to pay 3.99 for the envelopes but I waited until they sent me a 50% off my total offer and so I paid $2.00 for them!

 

I ordered their large postcards and made a welcome insert for the pocket of my OOT bags. The front says Welcome to Negril and our names. The back of the postcard has all the info for our wedding weekend, including times and events and appropriate dress code. So far the only info item that I am paying for is invitations.

 

I used that same 50% off coupon and ordered 30 t shirts for my OOT bags with our info and design on them. They were $135 for all. I think with the shipping it came to about 150$.

 

I am ordering a free lawn sign with our design and Robinson Wedding --->

on it to direct people to our wedding location at the resort.

 

I haven't figured out how to use them for our wedding programs yet. If someone can share that info I would appreciate it!

I am so glad that I found Vista Print on this site. It has saved me lots of $$!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
