Hi everyone! I just wanted to share some information in case there are other brides out there (and I’m sure that there are) that are looking for affordable pocket fold invitations (just the pocketfolds). I just bought my pocket folds at paperandmore.com. They are currently on sale in packs of 50 for $39.99. I needed 100 and after shipping I ended up paying $83.00! I don’t know about anyone else but that is the cheapest the I have been able to find them and I have looked about everywhere. I just placed my order yesterday morning and by the afternoon I had already recieved another email telling me that the information had be transmitted to UPS. Fast service for sure! The only down side (for those of us brides that live in Canada) they do not ship to Cananda. But if you know someone in the states that you can ship it to instead, paper and more will ship to them for you. You obviously just need to then have your friend or family member ship to you once they recieve the package. Anyhow, Im so excited and can’t wait to recieve my pocketfolds from paper and more. I’ve listed the link below for anyone else that might be interested in taking a look! I ordered the Himalaya pocket folds. They are made of pearlescent metallic cardstock and are 6 1/4″ x 6 1/4″ when folded. These fit perfectly into 6 1/2″ square envelopes. I bought them in crimson red metallic!

Well, RubyMarie’s affordable pocketfolds news was better than mine. I was going to say that Target has a DIY kit of 50 pocketfold invites for $39.99. Even if you tossed the rest of the kit and just used the pockets, its as good of a deal as I’ve seen. The catch, of course, is that it only comes in one color – it looks dark brown in the picture, but if you open the box, it’s actually a shimmery copper. So, anyone looking for copper colored pocketfolds, there’s your deal 🙂

I did this search too, i found the cheapest to be http://www.cardsandpockets.com. They don’t require you buy in 50’s, you can buy whatever quantity you need, and they do ship to Canada. They price match too, so anything you find cheaper you can get, which was great for me because I found their envelopes to be the cheapest, and didn’t want to split up my sale between 2 sites.

@superpaper: I wish I would have known about cardsandpockets before (well I did know about them but did not realize they price matched!) oh well too late now, mine were delivered to my cousin in Austin yesterday so I will be getting them soon. But good to know for sure! I’ll have to check them out for envelopes and other paper I still need to get. Thanks for the info

I actually have been following the DIY pocketfold template here:
I found Dark Blue 19″x25″ charcoal paper at my local art store for $1.80. Each piece of paper creates 5 pocketfolds! So for about $31 I’ll have 85 pocketfolds! Yay! So, if you have a little time and want to make them yourself (seems a bit much at first, but it turns out to be super easy!), you can save a LOT of money this way! You can also experiment with the size and make pocketfolds for different kinds of cards (square comes easily to mind).

WeddingWisp, Thank you so much for mentioning Target! I went to the store after work to see what they had, and they had invitations that were exactly what I was looking for on clearance! So I just got 100 invitations and response cards for $17. I’m kind of in shock. Here’s a picture of what they look like, the branches are a silver foil:
We’re getting married in March, so I wanted something that was a combination of winter and spring, and a budding tree in a wintry silver colour is exactly what I was looking for! I’m so happy!
They came with an ivory ribbon to put through the hole at the end of the branch, but we’re probably going to do something green to match our colour scheme.
