Hi!

Here is what I made for our "thank you" cards for our wedding...


But now I don't know what to do...
How do I get the image ready to be printed?
Where to I send it to get printed?
Do I have it printed onto regular paper and then do I cut them into cards?

(P.S- Comments and criticism welcome!)

Boldly going where others have probably been.

That is a really adorable card! Good job. I don't know where to send it to get it printed though.

Lovely, fun design!

As for printing, maybe give a Kinko's (or other print shops) a call, see if they will print directly onto cards for you.

I'm not super tech-savvy, and I'm having trouble using vistaprint... it's probably just me, but the only way I've found to "print" it was through walgreens... and that's cool, but not the kind of paper I need...

When I upload to vista print, I can't get the size right... that's why I thought maybe I should just have it printed on heavy cardstock (like 2 to a page) and then cut them out myself. I'm going to mount them on yellow paper before I send them out.

Scan it at your local Kinko's.  Make sure the image is at least 300 dpi.  Just in case, save it in different file types (.gif, .tiff, and .pdf, at minimum).  Then try again with Vista Print.  If you are still having trouble with sizing, take it Kinko's or print shop.
