Vistaprint Invitations - My Review!

Hello Lovely Ladies!

I posted something a few weeks ago mentioning that Vistaprint had a 50% off sale, and I had ordered all of my wedding invitations. Some of you wanted to know the quality once I received them in person... well let me tell you...

We love them! They feel great, I got the standard matte, and it is a great, sturdy quality card stock. Nice, soft finish, and great colour. We got the 'northern lights' style, in the blue (comes in purple, green or blue theme). We ordered 70 invitations, 70 details inserts, 10 RSVP cards (just in case, doing E-RSVP), and return address labels. Every invitation & insert came with its own envelope (so 150 envelopes total), correctly sized to each item. The return address labels are adorable, clearly printed (I've blurred the address), and a nice, glossy finish.

The RSVP cards are quite big for just an accept or decline, but they originally had menu options on them. The Vistaprint layouts are EXTREMELY customizable, and we don't have menu choices, so I could delete them and make everything else bigger. Every other online builder I tried would not let me delete the menu options, and didn't have any layouts without them. But they are really nice quality, and also makes it more substantial to mail back.

Overall I'm super stoked with it. Waiting for the 50% off sale, I got the entire order, with shipping & taxes, for $80. You can't beat that! The 50% off sales are much more rare, but they often have 30-40% off around holiday weekends. INVITE25 is a constant promo code to get 25% off wedding stationary.

I've included the photos of my actual invites. I just love them, and can't wait to send them out now!

Any other questions, just ask!

    Amazing design and colour to pick. I love the option of adding lines where needed and making it easy to create the customized look. We too chose Vistaprint for our invitations and stationary. Still get things printed by them even now. Calendars are amazing to get with birthdays/anniversaries to remind you.

    This was our version:

    My company have had been using Vistaprint's services for over a year and they do great work at very reasonable prices. Until one Sunday morning we kept getting phone calls to our personal cell phone number. We were asleep and kept rejecting the calls. We finally answered to a sales person from Vistaprint. We asked them where they got our personal number and they stated that they sifted through past orders until they found a number that would pick up. This is slimy and unethical and very unprofessional to harass customers on a weekend, a Sunday and early morning when people are still asleep. We asked to escalate this issue to a supervisor three times and each time the "help" rep stated that a supervisor would call or email. They never did. We will never us Vistaprint again. It is too bad. They had a good thing going until they got desperate to make money.

    Love those, that's the same design my cousin used for his wedding in July! I also ordered from Vistaprint and was very happy with everything. I ordered our invitations, our ceremony programs and our thank you cards from their site. For the thank yous I just ordered what they call "postcards" and turned them into thank you cards with my content. That's one of the greatest things about Vistaprint, you can pick your template in then turn it into whatever you want! And you can't beat their prices, I paid a total of $160.06 for EVERYTHING!! They've always got promo codes available and I saved by going with the plain white envelopes that are included. Why spend extra money on a fancy envelope that everybody's just going to throw out anyway?!

    Im not doing any save the dates. I refuse to spend the money. I texted our family/friends that live far away or we know we want there. So thats good enough.
    But i like the engagement announcement for our OK party. 😊

    They are amazing! Thank you so much for providing some feedback. I am thinking of using vistaprint as well because of their pricing and knowing that their quality is good, is an added bonus!

    Thank you! Yours are so cute! Love the blue & gold.

    I wanted Save the Dates with our engagement photos... but we waited so long to get the photos done, I just ended up making my own on Photoshop to send out digitally...

    I just used vistaprint this week for my FMIL. She is hosting an engagement type party in the spring for us in Oklahoma. So she wanted to send something to her friends.

    Thank you! I just received my engagement photos the other day, and I've already built mock-ups for picture books on 3 or 4 websites, haha. The Vistaprint one is pretty good. We will definitely be doing bigger books/albums for the parents once we have the wedding photos as well.

    Thanks!! Yeah I don't know why I originally nixed the idea of Vistaprint... I had barely looked at them... but I love them so much. They just ooze our theme... I'm hoping those stars/trees are exactly what the view from our venue will look like Smiley xd

    Definitely do it! If you sign up for their promotions, you can watch for big sales more easily! I ordered mine about a month or so too early, but I wasn't going to pass up on 50% off!

    Love your stuff! So cute! I actually really like the Wine Vouchers... we are doing one drink ticket per guest... so I may totally steal those. Even the colour (blue & sparkle) are my colours! Haha!

    Vistaprint Invitations - My Review! 12


    As the same site you ordered, this is what I created and the RSVP on the same as ACCOMODOTAIONS. The menu card was then created based on the menu and I didn't want to mail out the Thank you cards and the same pattern for the Reception.

    Another project I created was a flip book and that came out excellent as well. Just the same and smaller in size and easier to take around. Check it out under photo gifts once you have received your pictures.

    Those are great! I just spent some time today making my own marbleized invites using Michael's kit. We're pretty happy with it. But I wish I knew about these vistaprint deals and options beforehand.

    They're lovely. I also used Vistaprint for my invitations; we didn't order from the wedding invitation category though; we used 'Postcards'; I paid less than 100$ total for Invitations, RSVP cards, labels, envelope closure stickers, mailing and return mailing envelopes and save the dates for 275 guests!

    The quality was great, and as you say, very customizable. Very much worth the money. Since that original order, we have also ordered a few additional things for the wedding - Welcome/menu cards for each person, a toonie bar announcement card (we used business cards for this), and wine voucher cards (Again, business cards) for the table. I also designed and ordered 3 posters (Pick a seat, Sweets table and Thank you).

    The down side to doing it this way is that they aren't as beautifully coordinated as yours, but still lovely. I'm sure I could have done more work (I ordered them in teal, and then our colour changed to bright blue so the rest of the stuff I ordered in blue) to make them coordinate more, but budget was more important than a cohesive looking package for us.
