There's a couple of issues you will want to work out first: How much are you going to pay for 5x7 prints and do you have big envelopes to mail the cards in? Otherwise, you may end up paying about the same amount. I noticed a couple of the photo printing sites charged quite a bit for 5x7 photos and it was comparable to the cheaper photo cards. Eh. With my Costco membership, however, the photos ended up being about $0.39 each and I was able to order the exact right number. Some sites required me to order 50 at a time.
Here's another alternative which is to make them as 4x6 photo cards. This would be a lot cheaper, but keep in mind that you can't do too much with the card itself because if you put two photos like I did (or more) then your photos are going to end up being really small once it's all printed on a 4x6. So will the text you add. That being said, Snapfish runs Penny Prints coupon codes that would make doing a 4x6 very inexpensive. Whichever route you go, I recommend printing a sample of your card in 4x6 or 5x7 (whichever you do) on your printer at home to see how the pictures and print look once printed.
I really like how these came out and the freedom I had to make the cards exactly how I wanted.
Here's the back of the card... as you can see, it's just a regular photo back.
