We got out save the dates (and change the dates) from Minted and love them! Great quality, good prices, and super fast delivery. We're planning on ordering our invitations from them 3 months in advance and sending them out 10 weeks in advance (since majority of the guest list will have to travel) - that'll give us 3 weeks to review any proofs, delivery, assembly, etc.
We got our Save the Dates from Minted. They were nice, but I was really disappointed with the proofing process. You don't get a physical proof, and what looks good on the computer might not look that way in person. The addresses on the envelope came out really small and dark and were hard to read, and the web address we put on the back of our postcard, which looked nice and big on a digital proof, was teeny tiny on the actual small postcard. I won't be using them for invitations for this reason. But, the printing is of nice quality and was well packaged.
I love Minted, used them for save the dates, postpone announcements, re-save the dates, and thank you cards. I love that they print my guests addresses. I totally get the proofing thing though. I zoomed in (or out) until the size of the STD on screen was the same size it would be in person, this way I could see the sizing of the lettering. I think it would have come out too small if I hadn't done that. I haven't used the proofing, just the express, but I probably will use that for actual invitations. They ship out so fast!
We used minted. We ordered invites, direction cards and rsvps. We wound up doing custom invites based off of a sample we got from them after they discontinued the one we picked. Due to covid we waited until the last possible moment to order, and went with the upgraded shipping. We got them in time with no issues. We also ordered our photo thank you cards from them after the wedding. Loved how all of it turned out.
Minted is really fast. We ordered Save the Dates, Postpone the Dates, and invites, and I would say after proofing they were delivered in 5-7 days. Once we paid for the upgraded shipping to get the STD's out before the Christmas card season and it was lightning fast. I would say you wouldn't need the upgraded shipping if you are willing to wait a week at the very most. Super easy to work with - our proofer even suggested some graphic design edits to improve the overall flow of our invitations which I did not expect but so happy they made some suggestions.
I used Minted for our Save the Dates, and am going to be using them for our escort cards. The only reason why I didn’t use them for our invites was because I found a set I liked better at Invitations by Dawn! Overall, the process went smoothly. As for shipping, I believe they took 2.5 weeks from the time of order and delivery.
