Looking for cheap save the dates that look great? Consider the sale that Vistaprint currently has going on offering you 10 free save the date cards, or a 20% discount + free shipping on your entire order of custom announcements.
You (hopefully) only have one wedding, and the save the dates are your way of officially telling family and friends that you are getting married. In fact, consider that most people are going to post your save the date card on their fridge or bulletin board for months before the wedding. (Your parents and siblings will probably save theirs forever!)
Inexpensive, not cheap! – Because of this, it’s good to know the difference between inexpensive, and “cheap. Inexpensive means that you are paying a low price, cheap means that your photos aren’t going to be sharp, and the paper that it’s printed on is probably better suited for those shady fliers that they hand out in Times Square!
Anyway, this is no time to drop the ball or to go cheap with those messy “do it yourself” kits either. Vistaprint’s website is user-friendly, and lets you upload your own custom design, or choose from their existing templates. Type in your own text and wording, and get an instant preview of what the save-the-dates are going to look like.
There are a couple of things that you might want to consider when choosing a design, including whether you want to include photos, or just text / typography. The most popular idea is to upload a photo or two so that invited guests can see the happy couple, but there are a few good classic options without pictures as well. Also, it’s a good idea to have your future spouse sign off on the wording, as you won’t get a chance to change it after the cards are printed. (If an argument breaks out, maybe hold off on sanding out save the dates!)
Anyway, Vistaprint is on a short list of discount custom printing companies that you should consider, and their coupon for 10 free save the dates is a good incentive!
