Cheap Save the Dates | Browse Inexpensive Save the Dates

Weddings can be tough on the wallet. We know that. It can be tricky piecing together all the bits and pieces of your special day and deciding how much money to allocate each item or category. If you want to emphasise your wedding invitation or wedding invitation suite, doing your save the date cheap can be the best compromise.

There is no reason to sacrifice style or quality when choosing a more affordable option and here at Paperlust we believe in delivering top-notch products to all our valued customers no matter their budget.

There are a few tricks for finding inexpensive save the dates that don’t look cheap and we’ve gathered a helpful list here:

  • Choose an affordable print type, like digital. Digital is the easiest, quickest and cheapest to print so it’s a go-to for all minor events stationery.
  • Keep your design simple. The more colours and techniques involved, the greater likelihood that the cost will increase.
  • Avoid fancy techniques like gold foiling and letterpress. The materials cost more to purchase and these processes often require your cards to be run through the printer multiple times, taking more time and driving the price higher.
  • Opt for black and white. Colourstock and multi coloured printing is often less affordable that simple black ink on white card (a minimalist design can still look fantastic).
  • Avoid custom designers. They will always come with a flat-rate designer fee and will almost always be your most expensive option.
  • Stick to a one-sided card. Similar to the fancy techniques tip, double-sided cards are more time-consuming and expensive to produce, increasing your overall cost.
