      I've used it a TON, too.  I got:  save the dates, t-shirts for my ring bearers and flower girl, business cards for luggage tags, business cards for name tags to put on our welcome bags, business cards that say "love is brewing" to tie on the coffee i'm leaving in each guest's kitchen, photo share cards, a lawn sign for my "shoes optional" sign, pretravel brochures, menus, welcome letters (rack cards with a letter on the front and a weekend itinerary on the back), return address labels for save the dates and pretravel brochures, return address labels that I turned into little flags for our drink stirrers, stickers to use as envelope seals for our pretravel brochures, business cards for the key/tip holders...I think that's it.  But ALL of that, including my save the dates, is going to end up at less than $200 - and that's including about $25 worth of stuff I ordered for my niece's birthday party, actually.  No way I would have been able to pull that off anywhere else.  And we're going to have 75-100 guests so it's a lot of printing.

              Oh my goodness I feel so computer challenged reading what you guys accomplish with vistaprint. I have NO IDEA how to make my own image and then upload it. MK I tried picmonkey and I have NO IDEA how you used a photo editor to make those gorgeous luggage tag and key tip holders. 

               

              I knew I was tech-challenged but my goodness!!!! :) 

               

               

              OH well!!

                Crazy right?  I used a discount code for my save the dates (maybe 50% off or something?  I don't really remember!), then for everything else I've used 2 of the $17 for $70 of merchandise groupons.  You get 30% off with those, too, and if you spend $25 on top of the groupon value, you get free shipping.  So my big orders have cost me $17 for the groupon + $25-$30 in stuff in order to get free shipping.  So for $17+$25=$42, I'm getting $135 worth of stuff ($135 @ 30% off = about $95, which covers the $25 over groupon value for free shipping).  Pretty great.

                  That's inspirational! I bought one of the $25 for $100 groupon things and then looked at doing AHR invites and they were still over $200 without the RSVP card!! Seems outrageous so I need to see what I can find for coupons!

                    Really?  It's so frustrating that you have to spend so much time trying to get the best price, but I guess it is what it is.  Let me know if I can help!
