Its just the one invitation card? Reply OHMYGOD POSTABLE, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE. I was fretting just the other day about getting people's addresses! 1 agrees Reply Got very excited for a second, then I discovered they don't send card outside the US. Still love the address book feature though Reply Hey Rebecca, we send cards anywhere in the world. They're all mailed from the US but you can send em to internationally! Hope that helps 🙂 Reply Oh man, I may end up doing this. I am looking for ways to make planning as easy as possible without breaking the bank (working around disability and depression). But just to clarify — they only charge you when you order the cards/stationery, right? It's not like a subscription service? This is probably obvious but I am pre-coffee and just want to make sure before I sign up. 🙂 Reply Duh, I figured it out after re-reading the post. I can be a little slow in the mornings. 😉 Reply This is awesome! But is postage included with the price per invitation?
