@bump:  I haven’t used those but you’ll just have to take it to the post office and ask how much postage is needed if you want to use those invites or make your own response cards but that may end up costing more than the extra postage would have.

I used to work for Michaels corporate office and wrote advertising copy for the BRIDES brand invitations (Gartner markets BRIDES products, and they were one of my vendors). I don’t remember though about the postage..sorry! They are very nice, have a large selection to chose from. Tongue Out

I used brides invites. There was an extra postage fee associated with mine. Most wedding invites are going to be over standard postage though. I didn’t have a problem. I got them weighted at the post office and everyone has reported getting them.

I used forever stamps on my response cards, I’ve already gotten one back. I’m not sure what the reviewer means, maybe it’s somethign with that specific style? It doesn’t make much sense to me.

I had several friends use these invites. I always got their invitations in the mail just fine! Take them to the post office to be weighed. I couldnt believe how many pretty invites they had! I agree – they are really nice, much thicker than other DIY’s.

For the main envelope, you’ll have to get it weighed. From the looks of it, my guess is that you’ll need the $0.65 stamps.

The review that you posted is actually talking about the response cards. It sounds like they may be too small to fit through the machine. The minimum dimensions to be sent with standard postage is 3.5″x5″. If the envelopes for the response cards are smaller than this, you’ll need to pay extra.

Hope this helps

I also used a set of Brides invites (though not that style).  They turned out great, no can believe we printed them ourselves.  And we paid all of $40 for our invitations!  I weighed my invitation at the post office, and we used the .65 cent stamp for each invitation because it was so thick (our invite went inside a folder, and then we had two cards and a reply envelope).  If you are concerned about the reply envelope, if it is a square shape then it does cost more.  I don’t really understand why, but that’s how it is.  So if its square, ask how much it will cost.  Or find another way to do your reply cards.
