Comments about InvitationsByDawn for Kickin' Back Umbrella - Save the Date Card:
Product Comments: Fell in love with these the first time I saw them! Nothing else compared. Recieved order faster than expected and was pleased. UNTIL... I was stuffing them and the envelopes were cheap and were hit or miss on sealing had to tape all of them shut. Also started asking around and majority of them arrived broken which runnied the card the cards arrived smugged with the color of the umberellas and sticks were broken. So bottom line they do not travel well.
Very Vey Cute and Fun but the odds of arriving intact are not high. DONT DO IT!
Also makes me hesitant to order wedding invitations from here based on the bunk quality of the envelopes.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Product Comments: I used these as Save the Dates for our destination wedding in the British Virgin Islands. They were a perfect way to start setting the tone for our destination wedding!
I really liked the way the text was laid out on the card. The paper is of good quality however, when you put the umbrella through the holes it causes the card to 'wave' - you just need to bend the paper a bit to smooth it out.
I took them to the Post Office, used 66 cent postage and asked for them to be hand stamped. Make sure you ask for hand stamp (no charge!) so that the umbrellas do not break in the sorting machines. We put a little sand in the envelopes as well - and they all made it to their destinations with out any umbrellas breaking.
Our guests loved them!

Product Comments: Love the Save the Dates! Just be sure to meet with the post office regarding shipping prior to ship. Although the weight and size fit within the standards of a regular stamp, due to the umbrellas, you will need to pay extra (approx 5 stamps per). Totally worth the cost bc they are so cute and inexpensive to order. The one thing I would like to see changed; however, is a thicker envelope. The envelope should be similar card stock as the invite not only to match, but also to protect the umbrella and card inside. With a thicker envelope, you wouldn't be able to see the save the date through it as well. Overall, fun save the dates!!

Product Comments: Love the save the dates it was easy to customize, they arrived quickly and we plan to buy more invitations for Dawns. The only con was the envelope was kinda flimsy and I had to place them in an additional envelope for shipping which of course cost more in postage.

Product Comments: We had these Save the Dates customized as the invites to our Engagement Party (a casual backyard BBQ). The reviews are unanimous - everyone loves them! They are worth every penny (nearly $3 each). Note: you will need the 66 cent postal stamp for these and my post office recommended them being hand stamped so the postage machine doesn't crush the envelope/umbrella.
Service Comments: Prompt delivery. Prompt customization. Not a single complaint.

Product Comments: My fiance and I loved this save the date card since it was simple yet beachy and the umbrella was a unique touch. The problem we had was that after taking these cards, ready to be mailed in the envelopes, to two separate post offices, we were told by both that the cards probably would not all make it to their recipients without being damaged, since the umbrellas make the envelopes bumpy and more likely to be bent or broken by the mail sorting machines. We then ended up sending each card in a small padded package to each person which cost significantly more money. I still like the cards but I wish there had been some warning of this issue when I originally bought them. I called and spoke with customer service who said they had never heard of such an issue with these cards. I find that hard to believe, unless the people using them previously did not send them via mail.
