"We loved our cards but had to toss three of them out because of spots on our faces in printing process"

"We went with the gray card and customized text to read Just Married and our first names. The cards came very quickly and were just as advertised. The gray is quite dark and the paper quality is very matte- similar to a business card. The colors read very true on my screen. We are very happy and have received many complements!"
"My husband and I got married in a hot air balloon unannounced after a year of planning frustrations. We wanted an announcement to send to friends and family that was fun and fit our spontaneous personality. We loved the fun, whimsical design of this announcement and the option of highlighting three of our favorite pictures from our exciting day. Overall, the quality of the paper was great, however, I wish the colors would have been a little closer to what the actual image looked like online. It was more of a gray color when it arrived, when online it had more of a blue hue, which was the look we wanted. We loved the announcement though and we continue to receive wonderful comments on it! I always recommend TinyPrints and Wedding Paper Divas to our family and friends!"
"After way too much time weighing my options on a wedding announcement card, I chose this announcement and was quite pleased with the results. Given the structure of the card, I think it looks best with photos taken with the same background or or with a theme. Each photo block is about 2 inches, so make sure you fill the frame with exactly what you want and not a lot of grass or church pews lest your faces will become indistinguishable! (head/body shots are best) I used the preset text which is very easy to read. The paper quality is card stock and thick enough to sit on the counter and be admired but not so think that your guests will feel bad throwing it out after a while! The photos are matte printed because it's card stock. These are not the announcements to buy if you want a "photo" announcement. It's more of a card with graphics printed but all the details of my dress, flowers, etc. are well preserved. And I thought the price was quite reasonable! I looked at paying more than twice as much for announcements and I'm glad I didn't. People were thrilled to receive them and they got the message across, "You weren't invited to our little party, but we sure had a great time!" (lol)"
"We recently ordered these announcements and are very pleased with the style and quality. There are two small points I feel I ought to mention however. First of all, I ordered the sample so I would have a good sense of the color, but my actual order was probably 10 shades darker (not the small difference one might expect with printing). I don't know if the sample was just printed a long time ago and has faded, or if there are big discrepancies in color, from light plum to very dark purple, depending on when you order it. Nonetheless it still looks lovely. My only other gripe is that the envelope flaps are all creased slightly off center, so that a return address on the back can't be centered on both the flap and the envelope at the same time--this is admittedly a small thing that hopefully only the sender sees, and in fact so far none of the recipients seem to have noticed! Again, we are thrilled overall with how our announcements turned out, and we have already received a few compliments on them, I think because the design is modern and fun."
