    Over the last few days, I've been looking for thank you cards that I'd like... and found that they were all so expensive !

    Well, with VistaPrint doing 50 oversized postcards free (including own design upload) or 100 regular sized postcards free, I decided to make my own !

    DH chose one in the 8 I designed. It's the one with the sunset. I attach all my templates for your usage. For the back of the postcard, you can do simply a blank back. I did a "waterprint" of the image by using the "recolor" option in powerpoint 07, deleted the words and added our monogram (cf the file called "back, without the monogram).

    I also attach a pdf of how they should look. The fonts I used are :
    Bradley Hand ITC
    Tempus Sans ITC
    Matisse ITC
    Curlz MT

    The languages in the one that has several languages are Russian, Spanish, French, Hindi, English, and Bulgarian. This was done to adapt to my guests, it can of course be customized (just google what you're looking for).

    Before uploading to vistaprint, make sure to have only one side per file (ie, one file for front, one file for back) and save the file to a pdf.

    I hope this will inspire some of you ! Enjoy !

      And here are the last ones (with the front matching the back in the first post I don't know why I have to break this down into so many files. Anyway

      Note that the VistaPrint free postcards current offer ends this Tuesday March 31, 09 (there will be others, but for those who would want to benefit fromthis one...) I got 50 oversized postcards with enveloppes for only 12$ shipping included ! So glad !
