So my favorite "go to" website for invitations/announcements is Etsy.com. There are so many wonderful crafty people on that website that are willing to do all of the work for you and not charge you a ton of money. You can buy ones that they print on really nice card stock and mail to you or you can purchase a digital file and have them email it to you which then you can print at home or at any store with a photo lab.
Depending on the event, I usually buy the digital file. They can range in price from $5-25. I always request that they size it 7x6.5 (will let you know why in a minute) and I typically receive an emailed proof within 24-48 hours. The only thing that is hard is picking out which card because there are so many great ones.
My Thing #3 is turning one on the 4th of July (he's my lil' Firecracker), so this was the style I picked for him:
|The seller is "Poofyprints"and I would HIGHLY recommend|
Now I just need to pick up some stamps at the grocery store (forgot to grab them at Costco) and mail them out. One less thing to stress over. THANK YOU ETSY!
