Vendor Review - eIinvite - A

I ordered our Illinois Save the Dates from (through As a Costco member you received 25% off your total which made sending STDs affordable and within my budget. The personalization of the interior portion of the order was tricky. You have to play around with the spacing and lines, but I finished the design in about 10 minutes. I was surprised I was able to edit the front of the card and add a line to the design in order to achieve the look I wanted.

When I submitted the order I included special instructions to see a digital proof before printing. I *highly* recommend requesting a digital proof whenever possible! I've avoided catastophes at work and with my own save the dates. I got the proof back within 24 hours (awesome turn around) and within that time we decided to remove the required password from our website. I called customer service before submitting changes to the proof to find out what the cost would be. eInvite was quick to answer my call and to my suprise they don't charge for proof changes! (Most companies charge anywhere from $10-$30 for changes to the design.) I removed the login/password info from the design, submitted the revisions and received our new proof the same day. Amazing.

With the finalized order confirmation the estimated ship date was noted as 7/15, exactly 1 month later. I was bummed but loved the design so I figured it was worth the wait. Fortunately, I received everything much earlier and was able to mail out the STDs on 7/1 (nearly 4 months before the reception) which allows out-of-towners enough time to make arrangements.

Overall, I am very please with my experience; they offer many options (both price and style), great customer service and the turn around time was impressive and the end product is of high quality.

Here's the proof - I took actual photos but haven't uploaded them yet...

Confession: I ordered invitation samples from eInvite loooong before Andy and I were even engaged...
