Making announcements and getting them printed?

Hey ladies,

I am thinking about making my LO's birth announcements on Photoshop, and then sending them off somewhere to get them printed. Do you know of any reliable and affordable places to get this done? Online would be best, since we live in a small town with just one WalMart. Biggrin Thanks!

If you make them in a standard photo size, like maybe 5x7 - I'd just upload them to Wal-Mart and have them printed at your store, and you can go pick them up (or you can have them shipped to your house from there, too). I used them for my Christmas cards, and I also created birthday invites in photoshop and printed them 5x7 at Wal-Mart - they turned out great!

I 2nd Sarah! That is what I did with for my DD's 1st b-day! They turned out great! I just created them on my software at home and printed them as a 4x6 at Wal-Mart! Can't wait to see what you made! Biggrin

I had our Christmas cards printed at Walgreens.com & selected the Matte finish, and they turned out GREAT! I think it is like $14.99 for 20 cards and includes envelopes for their template, but for your own design I am not sure - I would prabably just select the 5 X 7 size and then pick up 5 x 7 envelopes at the craft store?
