Shutterfly

SHUTTERFLY Visit Site

TopConsumerReviews.com Best-In-Class Blue Ribbon Award Shutterfly has emerged as the one-stop-shop for all things printed, from calendars to gifts and more. It won't take long for you to see why they easily earned our top ranking among providers of wedding invitations as well.

The wedding invitations section of the Shutterfly site is clearly laid out and visually attractive, avoiding the cluttered look. We love how the preview image for all of their 400+ designs allows you click on any of the available color choices, to see right away how the invitation's appearance would change with a different selection. Most of the invitations have at least three recommended color options, along with the ability to customize the color palette.

You can easily narrow down your options using the filters on the left-hand side of the page:

  • Featured: Foil Stamped, Art Library, Glitter Cards, etc.
  • # of Photos, if any
  • Format: Flat or Tri-Fold
  • Card Size: 5x7 or 6x8
  • Paper Type: Signature Cardstock or Pearl Shimmer Cardstock
  • Trim Options: Square, Rounded Corners, etc.
  • Theme: Photo-on-Photo, Outdoor, Religious, Spanish, Tropical, Elegant, and many more
  • Style: Classic, Contemporary, Whimsy, Modern, Rustic, Artistic, Vintage, and Whimsical
  • Foil / Glitter / Design Colors
  • Designer: Brejer, David's Bridal, Lady Jae, Mindy Weiss, Stina Persson, Yours Truly, and more than two dozen others

Shutterfly recently acquired Wedding Paper Divas, another another high-quality wedding invitation company. We think that was a really smart move on their part; Wedding Paper Diva's eye-catching designs add a level of style and elegance to Shutterfly's already-impressive selection. If you're interested in taking a look just at Wedding Paper Diva's designs, you can select that filter.

Another fantastic perk offered by Shutterfly is the ability to get 5 free samples that are actually printed with your own details. Look for the offer either in the pink box at the top of the wedding invitations page or on the promotions page, because you'll need an offer code. You may have to pay taxes and shipping, and this offer is only valid once per account.

The interface used by Shutterfly to design your wedding invitation is very straightforward. You'll be prompted to fix anything it sees as a possible mistake, such as leaving a photo or text box empty, or not previewing it before you add it to the cart. Be aware that you will need to create a Shutterfly account, migrate your preexisting TinyPrints or Wedding Paper Divas account, or sign in with your existing Shutterfly account info in order to save your project and get to the final order screen.

Pricing through this service is very competitive with other companies in our review. Like most sites, the "starting at" or "as low as" price given represents a large order; for example, on one style we selected, the "as low as" amount of $0.90 per invitation required an order of at least 255 invitations, and higher per-card costs for smaller orders. Shutterfly's shipping fees edge out the competition; when we visited the site, there was a free shipping promotion for orders of $39+.

Custom envelopes are available for most designs for an additional fee, typically $0.25 per envelope, and free recipient addressing is included. Return address printing will incur an extra charge, usually around $0.39 per envelope.

On all orders, from wedding invitations to photo prints, Shutterfly offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If your order has any flaws due to a mistake on their part, Shutterfly will replace it as quickly as possible at no charge. On the other hand, if you made a mistake such as a typo or a low-resolution photo, Shutterfly will help you fix it and pay for part of the replacement cost.

When happy couples want to announce their wedding, they want an invitation that's as unique as their relationship, and a design process that won't leave them flustered. Shutterfly is our top choice for the best wedding invitations. We're confident that you'll love any number of their hundreds of designs, the invitation-creating process, and, most importantly, the final result.

Invitation Consultants

INVITATION CONSULTANTS Visit Site

Invitation Consultants is truly a full-service wedding invitation provider. With over 1,000 different choices of wedding invitations, there's at least one option that's sure to meet anyone's needs. They have many different wedding invitation styles including pocket wedding invitations, invitations accessorized with ribbon, and sheer or vellum wedding invitations. You can also choose from green-friendly wedding invitations, which are printed on recycled paper. For most wedding invitations, you can customize the color of ink used for the text, choose the font, and select from a variety of different finishes.

The Invitations Consultants website is attractive and the search functionality is easy to use. You can choose to search wedding invitations by popular themes, color, budget, paper styles, embellishments, and seasonal options. Before you order, you can request that a wedding invitation sample be mailed to you to confirm the color, the texture and the finish before ordering.

Once you've chosen your wedding invitation design, you can further customize the package you order. For example, you can choose from matching reply cards, thank you notes, envelopes and more. Invitation Consultants will even print a return address printed on your envelopes. And, to keep costs down, the more wedding invitations that you purchase, the smaller the per-piece price will be.

One service that we especially liked that Invitation Consultants provides is their full-service wedding invitation option. If you're in a hurry and short on time, or simply don't want to hand-address all your wedding invitations, Invitation Consultants will stuff and mail your wedding invitations for you. They only charge an additional $25 for this service, which we think is quite a bargain.

If you want to match your wedding invitations to other printed products, Invitation Consultants offers other wedding-related printable items that you can personalize and color coordinate to your wedding invitations and your wedding colors. These items include place cards, save the date notices and even wine labels. Furthermore, wedding invitations are not the only printed product Invitation Consultants offers. They also sell a full array of party and event invitations, and other announcements including birth announcements, holiday cards, corporate events, birthday parties and more.

For questions, you can speak to a live, online chat representative who can help guide you through the process of ordering your wedding invitations and answer any questions you have during the process. Invitation Consultants ships orders in a speedy 1-3 business days and offers free shipping on orders over $99.

Of course, you can always buy wedding invitations from a local store. However, purchasing your wedding invitations over the internet can give you many more options to choose from, and at a much lower cost. In fact, it's for these very reasons that online sales of wedding invitations have enjoyed record growth over the last few years.

Before you start shopping to pick out your wedding invitations, thare are many important factors to consider. Some of these include:

  • Variety.  Some stores offer you dozens, even hundreds, of choices; others have only a handful of options.
  • Quality.  A cheap, poorly made invitation won't please anyone. You want to be sure you're purchasing a quality invitation from a reputable company.
  • Cost.  While it's true that buying wedding invitations over the internet can save you hundreds of dollars, some internet stores offer you better prices than others.
