    Hi - I'm not sure if my brain is fried or what but for some reason I can't find the option for what I want to do which is this - I want to upload my own photo for the front of a card (just a one piece card, like a typical photo card or announcement, not a fold over or anything), with NO text on the front (just the photo), and then upload text relating to the STD details on the back. Can someone humor me and help me thru this? I'm usually very technical but I think I'm so tired from my exhaustive resort research (which is still going on) - and I'm just trying to be prepared for a quick STD send out when I finally pick one to give my guests the most time I can (which is not much).

    Also, does anyone know if the quality is good when Vista prints photos on cards? I was thinking of buying paper and doing this all myself, but wasn't sure if the color printer at work (or my one at home) would be good enough and whether it would be too hard to get everything nice and even.

    Additionally, I know what gloss or matte is, but what is the linen option?

    And finally, are the envelopes of corresponding quality to the cards - do they go together well with similar paper quality?

    THANKS!!

      Ok, I'm an idiot - seems like you just have to choose Upload your own design. Ok. I still would love answers to the other questions. Also, does anyone order just 1 of a card to make sure it worked ok before ordering a bunch?

        I never have, but everything I have ordered from them has turned out perfect, and if you use the coupons, you really can't beat the deals!

          PM me your email address & I'll email you the deal for 100 free postcards. With shipping it should cost about $15 for 100 cards.

          I was very happy with the quality.

          I did not get the envelopes.

            You may have already figured this out, but I made a thread to help people who were having problems making the postcards. I plan on adding more details to it later.

              I uploaded both a front & back for my postcards. I LOVE the quality; they turned out GREAT!! I also used the 100 free postcards offer, I think it ended up costing me around $20 (I didn't get envelopes).

              Once you upload both front & back, you have a change to view the postcard as it would appear BEFORE ordering. It's very helpful; after viewing it, I went back and made some changes before my final order. I don't think you can order just one.

                I thought the upload fee was per upload. Now I know it's only for uploads you end up buying. So I saw that my text was a little too close to the top, but I didn't want to pay $4.99 again. Now I know I didn't have to.
