Stationery Styles

Unfortunately, Simply to Impress does not carry wedding invitations. However, they do carry a wide range of save-the-date cards in great design styles.

You can refine your search by number of photos on the card, card orientation, special features (foil-stamped or folded cards), color, or card shape. More than half of the 193 save-the-date options have either the option to add 1, 2,  or 3+ photos to the cards. This make sense as the company says on their about page, “We believe in creating designs that bridge the gap between fine art and photography.”

We see there is a limited number of foil cards at this time, but perhaps that is something they are working to build out over the next while.

Process

First select a card, and then choose between 2 paper types: one offers single sided printing and the other offers double sided printing. Choose card size if applicable, foil color if applicable and enter the quantity of cards required, keeping in mind there is a 15 card minimum requirement.

Once you have chosen all the appropriate fields, you can personalize your card. If you have chosen a card that allows you to upload a picture, you can do so from your device, Facebook, Instagram, Dropbox, Google Photos, Google Drive, Flickr, OneDrive.

Edit or delete existing text that is already in the design. You can also add a text box if you wish.  When you click on the individual text boxed you are able to choose between 22 different font colors, change font, font size, letter spacing and line height.

The choice to personalize the back of the card and include additional text and photos comes next. If you do choose to have the back size you first have to upgrade to double-sided card stock for $0.51 more per card.

After selecting the option to personalize the back, a pop up window opens and you are able to choose from 22 background colors, card photo layouts (including no photos, text only, 1 photo up to 12 photos.)

Finally, review your product both front to back and add any special requests in the comment box.

Conclusion

A bright and cheery website that is easy to maneuver scores high in our Simply to Impress review.  They offer a great selection of save-the-dates, and we wish they offered wedding invitations too!

The filter tool lacks a little functionality in that there is no ability to filter by style. We see that there are many different themes offered, such as: nautical, whimsical, floral, and modern.  We like the added bonus of not only having a professional designer review your work, but also having them check image quality, adjust brightness and contrast, mirror photo, make text legible on card back and basic color changes too.

Overall, we like them as an online stationer to buy your save-the-date wedding cards.
