Can anyone recommend a affordable save the date place? looking for under .90 per card. (Need to print off 80) I’m a little hesitate to order online due to the mail being SO incredibly slow now a day.... has anyone used Walgreens? I was looking online and it says you can order online and pick up in store? Curious is anyone went a drugstore route? I’d rather pick them up in store then wait for them to come in the mail. As always, thank you all so kindly!!!

    I would check out Ann's Bridal Bargains! We got our invitations from them and probably would have gotten the Save the Dates too, but I didn't know about them when I ordered those. The mail seems to be much better now. A lot of it was because of the huge increase in mail being sent out due to mail in ballots and Christmas presents. It mostly seems to have leveled off now.

    I think when Zazzle, VistaPrint & Shutterfly have their sales their prices might be close to that.

    We got magnet save the dates from VistaPrint. I personally prefer magnets because guests are less likely to misplace them.

    We got ours from VistaPrint and they weren't expensive

    I am going to be using Basic Invite. The save the dates start at $0.99, but they print the addresses onto envelopes for you. Also, they have 15% off through the end of the month (this is usually a recurring sale though)

    Try Staples!
    I didn’t do my STDs there, but we bought our invitations from there. We ended up getting 50 invitations 5x7 & envelopes for $32. I’m sure their smaller items for STDs would be close in cost discount-wise. I picked them up in store like 12 hours after I ordered them.

    We got our save the dates from Zola - they were beautiful and pretty affordable, plus they always have good discounts. Right now, they have 50% off all save the dates (SAVE50) so might be worth looking into.

    I use Walgreen prints for many things! I didn't order my save the dates from them, but considered it. I actually used Costco instead because the pricing was better. I customized my cards and did the premium card prints with front and back. They were less than $18 for a pack of 25. I ordered 75 total.

    I added insert cards and created them from Walgreens. I went to the business cards section, customized my own, and printed 80 for like a $16 with the coupon.

    If you’re comfortable with designing your own, you could look into Canva! It’s a free app (also has a desktop site) that lets you make various designs. Some elements (some fonts and design elements) are a small fee to use but I made mine using all free elements. They also offer a printing option, I had 50 printed for $26 and they shipped quickly and turned out really lovely!

    Agreed. Vistaprint is your best bet and they can be printed as magnets so no one loses them.

    We just ordered our invitations from Zazzle last week (Wednesday). We have 2 different sets of invites (in person and virtual) and the in person invites just arrived today. RSVP/details cards are expected to be delivered by Wednesday and the virtual invites should be in by March 2nd. To be fair, everything was estimated to be here by March 2nd so they're arriving earlier than expected. They were having a sale when we ordered and it was about $60 for those 50 in person invitations and envelopes. We spent about $120 for all invitations (75) and RSVP/details inserts. If you opt for invitations that don't include envelopes you can get them cheaper and then grab the right size envelopes from a local store. I've also seen post card options that are cheaper and then you don't even need to bother with envelopes!

    Haven't ordered any myself, but would recommend looking into ordering "promotional postcards" or things in the "non-wedding" section because it can save you a lot of money!

    We are taking about doing post cards with a picture in the front and the date info on the back. Nothing crazy. A pack of 100 post cards are on Amazon for like $16 and we will print them our selves

    I actually went on Walmart and they had some great deals and that's where I ordered mine and they came out great! I was really happy with them.

    If you want to save some money on your save the dates try designing them yourself and printing them yourself. So I wanted to save on it and I am a graphic designer but there is a design website called Canva. It is VERY easy to use and they even have save the date, wedding invites ect templates to go off of. That alone can save you a good amount of money. If you know someone with a good printer that can print cardstock you can print them right at home. Michaels always has a good sale on good cardstock or you can upload that file and print it on cardstock at staples, Walgreens. ect
