Save the Date cards
"This card is simple and to the point, just the way we want it. Although the corner of the save the date column looks a bit funny, we still like the simplistic style to this card.
The only complaint we have is actually how the save the date portion is positioned on the left on almost all the save the date cards' design, except for this "Label of Love" one!!!. We originally were going with "Best Date Ever Save The Date", because the save the date portion looks simpler and the fonts for the date are much bigger and eye catching. But the problem with most of the one-photo save the date cards on this website is that the "save the date" portion is almost always on the left. It is already hard to decide on what's our favorite photo to put on a save the date card, having to pick a photo that fit the design just adds another layer of complication."

A Lot of Bang For Your Buck!
"I was really nervous about using Shutterfly for the save-the-dates for mine and Darik's October wedding, until my friend sent me a save-the-date for her wedding also made by Shutterfly. I spent some time playing around with the layouts of several "favorited" templates, which I highly recommend especially if you're planning to have photos on your cards. I was worried that the pictures might be too small as many of our engagement photos were not close up shots. So I took a shot and was blown away when my little orange box arrived. The pictures were perfectly clear and it looks absolutely gorgeous! I simply love it! Also, I might add, the delivery time was pretty spectacular too. I ordered mine exactly a week ago on Memorial Day weekend and althouh they weren't originally supposed to arrive until next week, I still got them last night, Friday, despite the Federal holiday. Shutterfly is awesome! :-)"

I love my cards!
"I used the Dave the date cards for invitations for my 4 yr olds Disney princess party. I love the great quality the cards are, and the different shapes I can make the invitation. Overall I'm satisfied with the cards, and glad they included envelopes"

Big Bold Initials Save The Date
"Beautifully printed on both sides (flat matte card, no fold). Color matching is very true and fine detail is reproduced faithfully. This square card shape stands out and the matching envelopes are lovely...it was fun trying to decide options for corners, images (front and back, paper, fonts, background colors etc.)....some text areas I chose not to use and that flexibility is a great feature if you want your image to be the total focus. I would definitely buy again and recommend this product to others."

Foil Save The Date
In the past, foil stamping was used primarily on business cards or letterheads. The thought was that the metallic finish created an industrial look for a more professional feel. Such cold-hearted professionalism has no place is the warm-fuzzy world of invitations and cards, right? Wrong! Today, foil stamping is a terrific option to consider when trying to present a high-quality image and convey the importance of the message that a card contains. What message could be more important to share than news of a big event?
Foil printing has found a home in the invitation and greeting card industry with save the date cards. Typically, these cards are reserved for those events where attendance is (at least perceived to be) more mandatory than optional. For example, you may not care if your third-cousin-who-you-last-saw-three-years-ago makes it to your wedding, but you’ll certainly want your favorite aunt to be there. Given the importance of your event, foil printing is the ideal format to use to convey your message.
Foil Stamped Points to Ponder
Remember these foil tips when crafting your save the date cards:
• While foil prints are usually done in metallic colors, they can also create a stunning look when done in white set against a dark-colored background. • Choose a thicker style of paper when using a foil print. This helps to avoid issues with the pressing of the print, and creates an elegant imprinted final feel. • Limit your foil printing to line art and wording. Trying to get too artistic will not only cost more, but may take much longer to complete.
Remember, too, that you aren’t done dispersing your invites after having sent your save the date cards. These are meant to serve only as a placeholder until having received your actual wedding invitations. Whether the event you’re celebrating is a wedding, graduation, or baptism, you’ll need to convey the specific details of the occasion to those you hope will attend in your invitations. Also, don’t forget to send out wedding thank you cards after the event is over.
