@KC-2722:  That seems like WAY too much! I’d try and get a few more quotes.

That’s ridiculous. They’re just getting thrown away. I won’t pay more than $1/invite for mine.

@KC-2722:  Yikes, that’s a lot! I’m going custom (pocketfolds) through an Esty seller for around $10/suite – and that includes full addressing on the envelopes. I’d definitely recommend looking around on Etsy if you haven’t already…the seller I’m using doesn’t have a brick and mortar storefront making their overhead (and subsequently their prices) lower!

@KC-2722:  That is about how much mine cost actually.  The thing is a lot of the cost goes in to making the form so the price per invitation actually goes down with the more you order.  Plus things like foil and edging and really nice paper ended up adding up.  You might want to look at aerialist press.  I was considering them for a little while.

Letterpress are usually going to be way more than a standard printed invite. There’s a lot more to it.

@KC-2722:  Try Paper-Source!  Their letterpress is very reasonable!

@KC-2722:  YIKES!  We’re doing custom designed ones through an etsy seller and ours are only going to be around $8 complete.  Since we’re only getting around 20 we have to pay a small order fee, but our total should only be $180.

@KC-2722:  No WAY.  I would never spend that much on paper that everyone will eventually toss.  I’d look elsewhere.

Thats crazy! I saw a design I liked in a store and the lady quoted me $1800! And then proceeded to stalk dial me to make sure I “changed my mind and wanted them after all.” um, no. I paid about $300 for a design I liked a lot better online.
