save the date postcards

Does anyone know where I can get cute yet cheap save the date post cards that go with the fall theme? I've looked around online and haven't found any that I'm in love with or remotely like. Plus I'm not trying to spend an arm and a leg on them.

    Have you tried Vistraprint? A lot of times you can get 100 postcards for free if you have one of the emails. If you need help find jena.n.ross on the DIY board she has a whole site set up for the best ways to get deals from Vistaprint!
    I think I ended up getting 200 or so and only had to pay shipping so it was WAY less than other sites.
    GL!

    I second Vistaprint.  That's where I did mine.  I did post card sized magnets that I designed myself.  They also have some cute pre-made designs if you don't want to create the designs yourself.  It was really really inexpensive, and yes, if you go with the postcards, you can often get 100 for free.  I just did that for my business and just had to pay for shipping.

    Online definitely - Vistaprint or even Etsy are good options.

    Sign up for their email notifications.  I get emails with 100% off deals all the time.  When I ordered from them I actually did a google search for something like 'vistaprint post cards' and it popped up several deals for % off.  FYI, I just did a google search for that and it popped up a deal for 100 free post cards.

    Vistaprint... definitely! 

    You can upload your own design for a nominal fee and totally customize it for your needs.(sometimes you can even find a free upload deal) We did our STD and RSVP cards through VP. 


    ETA- I made these in powerpoint then uploaded them to VP

    <div>Yep, cheaper.  Adding a free pen almost always lowers shipping (and hey, a free pen!).</div><div>

    Also, as I told Katie, the Sample Email in my bio is still current (their emails rarely expire when the say they do, if at all), and it has a lot of free items, and also free uploads.
