I'm very excited about submitting my order to Vistaprint within the next day or two. I'm considering getting "envelope seals" but I'm not sure what to expect. The seal that matches my invites looks a bit funny (see below) The image seems too small and awkward. I can't seem to manipulate the image to my liking; there is no option to resize. I'm also not sure what the horizontal gray lines represent (maybe a cut or perforation on the seal?)

Anyone buy envelope seals from VP? What did you think of them?

What other experiences did you have with your VistaPrint orders?

    @Bride, you're welcome. The blogger has been very helpful to a large number of brides on WW. I've used the same tips for numerous non-wedding items as well. Smiley smile

    I got our STD's from Vistaprint - The only problem I ran into was caused by me and only me! The first set was too grainy, but a personal friend/graphic artist did sort of a choppy job on some copy and it didn't show up very well on actual paper.

    The second time around we used one of the templates, and it looks fantastic! However!! I spelled April wrong (Aptil - face-palm), and we weren't about to pay for a third set so we bought a caligraphy pen the color of the background (luckily, a dark brick wall) and we sort of made it work. Most people won't notice, I'm sure.

    I think I might have a picture...

    Those look great Abigail! You did a fantastic job of fixing the Aptil. Looks like an "r" to me!

    Abigail, those are really cute! And maybe it's how I only see the small pic on my app and can't enlargen it, but I didn't notice the Aptil (I most always notice misspellings and typos--I annoy myself with that sometimes!), and even after you pointed it out and I looked closer, it looks like April.

    I used Vistaprint for Save The Dates so far, and I was happy with the outcome. My two suggestions:

    1- if you are ordering S.T.D's and you want them to be shiny, make sure that you pay for the upgrade. For some reason I thought that they would have a shine to them and the upgrade would just make them really shiny, but they are matte unless you pay more.

    2- you may already know, but make sure that you check for coupons! I have always found coupons on retailmenot: http://www.retailmenot.com/s/vistaprint

    Hope they turn out well for you!

    I loved our Vistaprint invites and I ADORED the seals. It's the custom scan we added to our invites (instead of a photo).

    I purchased my save the dates from VP, and honestly I love them the on,y thing I can say was that the fist set of 50 had what look like little water marks on them probably something only I could see when I called to tell them they gave me another 50 save the date magnets for free including shipping and I used another picture.. So overall I had a good experience...the top photo is the second one I order and the bottom is the first....
