Minted is one of the top online stationery and invitations sellers online. They have really beautiful designs and work with some fabulous designers. Many of these are independent designers and a lot of what the company offers is unique and can not be found anywhere else. They also print all their wedding invitations on the highest quality papers around. If you want letterpress Save the Date cards they have one of the best selections. Their products are more expensive than others but I think the quality is worth the premium price.

Minted has an extensive Save the Dates selection with over 84 designs. The cards feature beautiful photos and imagery and you can personalize many of the cards to suit your style and occasion. I also dig that they focus on customer satisfaction and back it up with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. The company tag line is that you’ll always find the freshest designs on paper. Indeed!

Below are some of our favorite Save the Dates from Minted.

Minted was recently featured on the Early Show on CBS. It was a great segment and the host Harry Smith had fantastic things to say about cards and the quality of the paper.

Wedding Paper Divas is the leading premium online wedding invitations store and our favorite place for Save the Dates. They are part of Tiny Prints the company that offers custom designed holiday cards, photo cards, and baby announcements for all kinds of family occasions.

In addition to Save the Date cards they also now feature Save the Date postcards and Save the Date magnets. The great thing is they have taken some of the best designs from the cards and translated them to magnets and postcards.

The company partners with well known and up and coming wedding invitation designers from across the country. Many of its Save the Date cards are exclusive designs not available anywhere else. While they offer Save the Dates they also have wedding invitations, bridal shower invitations and thank you cards.

Wedding Paper Divas offers Save the Date Photo Cards, Save the Date Magnets, and Save the Date Postcards. The overall quality of the wedding Save the Dates from Wedding Paper Divas is top notch. The company uses the latest digital printing technology which ensures high gloss photos and the perfect cards. They are also known for being able to process and deliver cards quickly in case you don’t have a lot of time. However, quality comes at a price and Wedding Paper Diva’s Save the Date cards are premium priced at typically between $1.25 to $3.00 per card. Some designs with letterpress or higher weight paper can easily be over $3.00 per card. Although you do receive discounted pricing with higher order quantities. Overall, from a price vs. quality stand point we still think Wedding Paper Divas offers the best value in terms of Save the Date cards.

Another positive is the high degree of personalization allowed. For most designs, you can choose different fonts, font colors, customize messages, and even edit photos to include sepia highlights or convert color photos to black and white. This really let’s you make custom cards. Wedding Paper Divas offers both traditional Save the Date Cards as well as Photo Save the Dates.

One unique service Wedding Paper Divas offers is complimentary photo touch ups on every card. Their in-house designers can brighten or sharpen images and even remove red eye. They will of course contact you to discuss any changes before they are made. I know they can even “hide” small blemishes like acne or a unsightly pimple.

Shutterfly is a company more known for it’s award-winning photo books and its photo printing services than for its Save the Date cards. However, as one of the largest online photo processing vendors they have the ability to offer affordable Save the Dates that include personalized photos.  Many of these are similar to photo holiday cards which Shutterfly also sells. The company focuses on helping people make the most of memories.

The greatest benefit of Shutterfly is that they have affordable, dare I say cheap Save the Date cards, with most cards priced at between $0.55 to $1.50.  There are some basic themes to choose from (approximately 50 something) and these include standard Save the Dates as well as Save the Date photo cards.
