Ok, you have GOT to pay attention to this one!
There’s this great online printer that I’ve started using. Their prints are amazing quality and SOOO cheap! I want to devote this post to those of you thinking of doing your own photo invitations, but really this printer can be used for so many great wedding things!
So yesterday I talked about how to make sure you’re really saving money with printing your invitations as photos. I don’t want you to think that I’m against that idea- I think it’s so smart to find great ways to save money! But I just keep thinking of these things that are better and cheaper than a photo print out and I just have to share.
I’ve Used Over Night Prints to print out fliers and business cards for small businesses. I was a little hesitant at first because their printing is so cheap, but their quality is amazing! The things I’ve printed have the quality of a professional postcard- that think cardstock paper with the glossy finish to make at photograph really shine. The best part about these guys is you don’t have to know anything about working with a professional photographer to use them! All you have to do is create a jpeg of exactly what your invitations will look like (just the same way you would if you were going to go get them printed at walmart etc). You upload your image onto their site and then about 5-7 days later your invitations show up at your door!
They offer a 5×7 postcard that is just the perfect size for a wedding invitation. And the best part is their prices! They currently just slashed their prices down, I don’t know if it’s a permanent thing or not so I’ll include the current price and the normal price for printing (Both are a steal!)
5×7 prints on thick cardstock with photo quality printing and super glossy finish would be-
100 prints for $29.95 (normally 42.95)
250 for $34.95 (normally $50.95)
500 for $59.95 (normally $76.95)
That’s less than $.12 per print for 500 prints! Add onto that $.10 per envelope and you’ve got a beautiful invitation for just $.22 per invite!
They also have business card prints that would work great for inserts if you need them! They’re just $10 for 100 cards!
I hope I’ve convinced you that there really are more options than just photo printing! Again, I’m not against it in anyway- I just want to show you all that’s available!
