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 $$!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
