We are customizing our save the dates on a website called templette. We got a digital template off of Etsy for $10 and then made them on their website. We are having a local company print them. Came out to only 50 cents per save the date!
We did what another bride suggested. Groupon has a staples deal for holiday cards and you can get 100 for $25. Then we used greetings island for free save the date templates and just did the upload your own option.
I ordered mine yesterday. I used vistaprint they were cheaper then shutterfly, and zazzle. I did do magnet save the dates thou. Also another trend that's in is doing postcards ( I didnt do them because I dont want them getting dirty in the mailing process).
We got all our printables at Zazzle. We paid $9.99 for Zazzle Black which means you’llget Free shipping for a year. Totally helps because you’ll usually order things at different times (Save The Dates, invites, menus).
