Hi.  I made my own, but bought some of the stuff online.  I made pocket fold invites, and they were pretty elaborate, but cost me about 250.00.

 

You can check them out on my blog.  I’m happy to help you if you have any questions about diy!

check out papeterie for nice, affordable invitations.  minted.com is a great site where you can browse a bunch of designers in one place, but i don’t think you’ll be able to stay under $500 with any of the designers on that site.

good luck!

I would check out etsy.com in their wedding section. They always have cool vendors that are willing to do custom work. You may even be able to get letterpress depending on your quantity. Also if you have alot their are vendors on etsy that will sell you the digital pdf file and you can take them to a printer on your own. Good luck 😉

I got mine at Cards and Pockets.  They were running a sale at the time and I think I got the Pockets for 78 cents each or somthing.  Still, their prices are low all of the time and most are around 98 cents each.

For the inserts, I just bought reams of ivory card stock.  I printed them first, then cut them to size w/ my paper cutter and punched the corners to give it a more polished look.

I used a pack of scrap book paper for the insert cover and for the outer ribbon.  I made the monogram stickers using sheets of plain circle labels.

 

Hope this helps!

I second the suggestion to check out Wedding Paper Divas.  We bought our invitations and save the dates through them, and paid less than four hundred dollars for everything.  I LOVE them! 🙂

You can try http://www.invitationsbyajalon.com also. They have a special right now for 100 invitations/RSVP postcards for $398, and they do custom designs also if you want something *really* unique.

Bean & Nicole6118 – I didn’t use a template.  I bought a vector graphic on for the invitation and for the corners on the inserts on istockphoto. If you’re not familar with vector graphics, they’re nice b/c you can make them big and small and the shape never changes.  I downloaded a free vector graphics program called inkscape.  However, if you have photoshop or illustrator, those are perfect.  I typed it all on inkscape using their fonts.  I used a laser printer b/c it shows up much sharper, but I think and inkjet would be ok.  Lots of trial and error!
