I recomend going to Michaels and see what they have there. They aren’t that hard to put together and look nice. We got a lot of compliments on ours.. they usually have 50% off coupons that use can use for there too.

or vistaprint is about $1 per invite, and you can get discounts if you sign up for their emails.

We got DIY invites from Target for $25 per box of 50, and we got so many compliments on them. 

Just a heads-up, though: They do NOT turn out well on an inkjet printer at home, even though the box says it will work out. Head to Kinko’s or another copy shop if you take that route.

It depends on how much you want to spend.  You can buy from Zazzle.com, VistaPrint, 123prints.com (I think they’re similar to Zazzle), or from Michaels/Wal-Mart/Joanne’s.  OR you can do it all yourself.  

You can also buy from etsy.com, too.  Or even design your own and have them printed somewhere online or at staples or a local printer.

How much are you looking to spend?  I think we ended up doing ours for $2-3 a piece, and I thought they looked SO good.  If you are willing to do some DIY, I thought cardsandpockets.com had some great pricing.  Paper Source sale items can be a wonderful thing, too!

I liked zazzle.  My invites were neat and were not that bad on price. The envelopes they came with were great quality and I was able to find matching RSVPs.  Get your thank yous at the same time and save even more $$$.

Yeah I got mine off of Etsy.com from Ellas Paper, and the invites, response cards, response envelopes with the address and out envelope all in were $2.75 each.  They’re gorgeous and I love them.

I used Vistaprint. I got 50 single page invitations and 100 RSVP postcards (smallest quantity you can buy) with my own design, printed on 100lb. recycled matte paper, plus 100 business cards to hand out at the reception to direct people to our Shutterfly Share site, and I paid about $60.

For what it’s worth, I made all of mine (from pocket fold to inserts) for way under $1 each.  Of course, ours were printed on white printer paper and resume-type paper.  Since they’ll probably be tossed anyway, we didn’t want to spend a lot on them and went total DIY. 🙂

I second 123print.com. We’re having 300 guests so I was not spending over $500 on invitations that people just throw away. At 123print we’re getting 200 invitations, envelopes, and RSVP cards for a little over $100. The postage is going to cost more than the invites!

You can also order sample copies for free from them. I ordered ours in a matte linen. It’s great quality and I plan to spice it up with rhinestones!
