Minted VS vista print (my experience)

Hi Brides! 👰🏼‍♀️


I just wanted to share my experience with you guys about using minted and vista print for all my signage!
I started out using minted, I love their templates and their address book feature. I chose minted because they write out the addresses on the envelopes for you which was important to me because with my save the dates I made them myself and made a ton of mistakes 😬 but when it came time to buy I didn’t realize it was in US dollars! Plus duty fees! It would’ve been 300 dollars for just invitations!!

So I went on vista print! I took a screenshot of the invitations I made on minted and uploaded to vista print. They turned out amazing! I chose a foil option on minted so obviously that didn’t come through on vista print but I knew that was going to happen!The do have foil invitation options on vista print if you don’t upload a photo of one from minted. I ordered linen envelopes and seals on vista and they turned out great! I ordered address labels and guest address labels off Etsy so that I don’t have to write it out!
I made my foam board signs on Canva , saved them to my camera roll and uploaded them to vista print! I ordered easels off Michaels when they had a sale for around 10 bucks So I ended up paying 300 dollars for all my signage on vista print! Which is a steal compared to minted! Minted does have very pretty designs and features to add to your invitations but if your on a tight budget I think vista print is the way to go!

Ps. I made my invitations double sided not two separate sheets Minted VS vista print (my experience) 1

    I did a similar process and used Vista print too. I wanted my invitations to match my wedding wire website (which also matches my overall wedding color palette) so I did a snip of my website home page design and built my invitation design in order point using that as my base for color and florals. Once done I turned it into a jpg and uploaded that to Vista. I created matching envelopes, sticker, gift tags for the favors, and a large welcome sign with the event schedule, all matching. I was really happy with how it turned out and I got all that for $175 cdn (with a 30% discount), free shipping. (The pictures have a blue border and dotted lines around the edges that aren't there in real life).

    You’re quite welcome!! 💕
    Oh it definitely will. I saw someone had a terrible experience with Minted. I loved Vista print but I just did all mine on my own with Canva and print. Hahaha!!

    These are the clear address labels that will go on the envelopes so I don’t have to write it out!

    Little tip! If you can try not to put your wedding date or names so that you can resell!
