Can you ladies please provide the specs for your printers? I'm in the market for a new printer and may as well get one that I can use for my upcoming DIY projects....Thanks!

I used Vistaprint for my Save the Dates so I'm not sure if that counts as professional or DIY.  I purchased 100 post cards for a total of $24.96 (which includes shipping to my house).  That makes each save the date, $0.25.  Pretty cheap in my opinion!!!

Shay, I LOVE your STD'S!!! This is exactly what I'm thinking of doing. Just one question- where did you find the images for the background? I keep googling [if that's even a word LOL] and I can't find the "right one". I only hope mine come out half as nice as yours msnwink.gif

These are super cute Traci! And I can't believe they were a quarter each! Talk about a deal!!!

I've used VistaPrint many times before, and they always come out exactly as pictured on the computer, which is great [and reliable]!

I'm going to try and venture into Photoshop-ing my STD's. It's been a long time since I've used it, but hopefully I can remember most of it ;)

I would suggest using Microsoft Publisher if you have it. It will be much easier to use (in my opinion).

Is there any way I could get a copy of that template if you have time? I would really like to start working on a monogram and I want to do postcard RSVPs....
