Yup, if you are planning to save money on wedding inserts and cards then I think this is one the places to do it -T & T Instant Print Services at Johor Bahru City Square. It is located at 5th floor near this waffle shop. When you take the escalator that goes to the cinema, walk straight past the ticket office, turn right and there you will see the shop.
Actually, its nothing new but almost all Singaporean couples come here to do their wedding inserts and cards. Prices are based on the number of cards you are printing, paper used, the designs of the cards, etc. The last time I asked for a basic card design is about 20 cents or less per piece and the lady told me the prices might increase because there is plan to add in government tax. In any case, it may still be cheaper than doing it in Singapore.
Some of the card designs...
Well, I have plans to do it here since we wanna save costs but I will still go to local shop and check out the prices for comparison (but that will have to wait next year!).
Anyway the lady advised us not to email them, to us it is a faster mode of communication but the problem is they do not have internet access and so phone call is very much preferred, besides it is way much faster to get things done (according to them).

By the way, just some calculation to see if all these printing insert/cards is worth making the trip down to JB...
Hotel gave me 75% wedding cards which is sufficient (according to colleague) because most guests invited come in pairs or families. So the cost now is only the inserts/cards which I need to try to find a place to get people to do at discounted rate. The cost savings I get from T & T is used to travel to and fro from Singer to JB and I may be wasting more money instead (technically I don't see it as a waste of my time and money because I get to eat cheap food, watch cheap movies and buy cheap stuff at City Square - depends on how one sees it). I am wasting more money in the sense because insert from Shop A vs Shop JB may saves me 30 cents (30 cents x 200 inserts = $60). Hence cost savings of $60 may not be substantial enough to waste the time and money to print, especially if I am saving 10 cents per piece, overall I am only saving $0.1 x 200 = $20.
Hmm something which you can think about and debate too!
