I am using cream puff backed with a brown mat on a red pocketfold from them. I am having them print and cut my invites and inserts with the price of paper included and the sample invite turned out really good IMO. I will try to post a picture tomorrow since I’m on my phone tonight.

@JessChris1020– was the cutting and printing an additional charge? I am thinking of doign that as well!

@MissDW:  

The total cost for the paper, printing, cutting of 125 monogram tags, invites, reception insert card, and rsvp postcard with color printing and full bleed because of the design is coming out to be $193. That may be a lot to some people but considering that even my local printers were going to charge me $100 per set of prints of each I thought it was pretty good. I will assemble everything and buy my pocketfolds separately so for invitations total without postage of course I’m looking at about $300 for 125 pocketfold invitations. Hope that helps! Oh and the cuts and quality were better than I ever expected!

That is way more reasonable than I thought it would be, thank you for the info. I am leaning towards taking this route as well, it will take so much less work for only a little bit more money.

I can’t wait to see the pictures!

My invitations are opal.  We had them print them because of the texture of the opal paper, a regular printer cannot print on them.  Their cost for the printing and cutting of that paper was pretty inexpensive.  I ended up ordering all the inserts in cream puff which we printed ourselves and then we assembled all of the pocketfolds.  

For about $1.50 an invite we made what I found on etsy for anywhere from $4-6 per invite.

I was pretty excited about it needless to say! I will post the picture tomorrow from work or either you can PM me your email and I can email you the picture tonight from my phone. I attached burlap ribbon to the side of the main invite so please overlook that as cards and pockets didn’t do that part!

I ordered my samples on Saturday and got them yesterday. I got paper samples, bellyband samples, and two pocketfolds.  I got the Opal & Quartz samples and I can’t tell the difference, not sure which one I like better.
