Vistaprint Giveaway: 100 Save-the-Dates or Thank You cards!

Although I was a little skeptical to head down the DIY stationery route because of my serious addiction to all things paper, there wasn't much in the way of wedding invitations on the market that suited our tastes or our budget. Invitation kits from Michaels never suited our aesthetics and although I would love to support on of the many artists on Etsy, the money simply wasn't there.

So, after a little (and by a little, I mean a lot) of time spent Photoshop-ing, we nailed down our design and decided to get prices from printing companies. By far, Vistaprint was the clear choice for us. They had the formats we needed, really helpful templates, and awesome prices (more about my obsession with them here). At this point, literally all of our wedding stationery is coming from there. So far that amounts to invitations, RSVP postcards, business cards with our wedding website, business cards with the address to our Flickr account so guests can upload photos, our programs and after the wedding, we'll be ordering Thank You cards.


Clearly, I'm obsessed. Which is why I'm so excited to announce that I'm hosting a giveaway for either 100 save-the-dates or 100 Thank You cards! I feel especially good about this giveaway because Vistaprint has been a great resource throughout our wedding planning process and I'm happy to spread words of praise for them.

If you want to know more, you can check out their main site at vistaprint.com or vistaprint.ca (for Canadians obviously, which is what I've been using). And since receiving the offer to host this giveaway, their wedding resource page was brought to my attention. This will be especially exciting for all you brides/grooms-to-be... check it out here. Plus, something else I found out is that they'll send you a free sample kit of their top wedding products. Um, how cool is that? I wish I'd known about that 4 months ago. Darn.

So for the love of your wallet, please check them out. Seriously. You will not regret it. I know I sound like their PR lady, but it's just because they've been so helpful to us in the past few months. And I think if more couples knew about them, they'd be more willing to pull out their creative spirit in the stationery design process.

Okay, that's my shpeal. Now for the goods. To enter for your chance to win either 100 save-the-dates or 100 Thank You cards from Vistaprint, here's what you need to know:

Awesome. I'm a follower! I wanted to do your invites but we needed 5x7 and VP doesn't do that. Would LOVE to use this for our thank you cards though.
