my Vistaprint invites
Posted 03 June 2010 - 03:13 PM
we are on a super tight budget, and pretty lax about a lot of the details, so we ended up going with Vistaprint for our invites.
for the most part we were really happy with them, but there are a few details that might turn a few people off!
this is the whole shebang - invite, matching envelope and one insert card (i have layed it out so you can the front and the back). the back of the invite has a design as well.
..and a closeup
the sides of the invitations were a little fuzzy, like they had been cut in a huge stack (which i am sure they were) instead of individually. at first this bothered me, but really - in the grande scheme, it is fine!
you have a choice of what you want on the inside of your envelops, and FI thought it would be cute to put a little message with our names on the inside...it says pamlovescemlovespamlovescem etc etc etc...awww
in this pic you will also see one of the faults that bugs me. the envelopes are a cream colour, but you can see the area where the sticky bit sticks is still white. i think that looks a little cheap. but i realized in the end that this will be covered and less noticeable when the envelopes are stuck closed.
...and finally, the one thing that bugs me the most: there is a blue line on the flap, and also of the bottom of the envelope. i don't know whether it was a printing reference or a fold reference, but i think it looks pretty bad. but again, i am over it. hehe.
all in all, i am happy with the invites and the fact that i only had to spend $136 for 70 (including shippping)...i would recommend them to everyone who is easy about the little details!

Can you call Vistaprint and let them know about the blue line on the envelopes? Since it bugs you the most, you should see if you can get it fixed. Just because you're on a budget doesn't mean you should settle for mistakes.
By the way -- cute invites!!!

Contact Vistaprint about your concerns and they are usually really good. I'm on a tight budget and would be really pleased if my invites turned out so good xx

i have come to terms with the blue line, but in retrospect, maybe i should have contacted them. it is too late now as they have to go out ASAP.
thanks for the comments

I thought Vista was reasonably priced and easy to work with. I don't need the invites right away so we chose the regular shipping option (21 days) but I'm hoping they come sooner. I haven't posted pictures anywhere on the forum yet, but when I get them I'll give it a try
Thanks for sharing!!
