i got my invitations from invitations by dawn and everyone has commented on how nice they are. the one's we chose ended up being $250 for 75 invitations, rsvps, printed return envelopes for the rsvps, outer envelope (with printed return address), and blank inner envelope. we bought ribbon from michaels to tie them...i LOVE LOVE LOVE how they turned out!!

On the other hand, I selected the folded note cards to use for our thank-you's and I created my own image, uploaded at a medium resolution (but one that was accepted by their system as being of sufficient quality) and had the option to request the matte finish which I thought might be okay seeing as the postcards were just *so* darn shiny. I just got those a few days ago and was SOOO disappointed with the quality. They were printed on paper that was lighter than a quality cardstock (sorry I don't know my actual paper weights) and the rough look made them seem kind of unfinished. In addition, each card had been cut from a larger piece of paper so the side that it had been cut on was rough and definitely evident compared to the uncut sides. It didn't help either that my image had a solid black border all the way around so any edges that were unfinished were especially evident.
The good thing is that Vistaprint has an excellent quality guarantee so i was able to get a refund on the notecards because I definitely wouldn't be sending them out as they are. The bad thing is that after having spent so much time creating my image and then waiting on these to be shipped, we're nearly two months out from our wedding and I feel extremely rude for not having thanked all our guests yet.
I think my overall advice is NOT to use vistaprint for your actual invites as they just might not end up looking as polished and finished as you would have liked. I'm confident that there will be LOTS of girls here who can recommend other places to go that have comparable prices too. Good luck!
