    @Bri1o:  IDK but I have been wondering the same thing about Etsy and invitations for a couple months! Glad you asked, I’ll be sure to follow the post to see what people say! 🙂

    I designed and printed my invites at home on a canon pixma.  It cost me around $2 to make each invite (includes envelopes, inserts, etc).

    I ordered my STDs and invitations from Etsy.  The vendor was out of Thailand.  She did an incredible job and I received them super quick!

    This is like asking how buying off of Ebay is as a general experience.  You’re going to find people who’ve had good and bad experiences because there are so many sellers.

    Read reviews.

    @Bri1o:  I used an Etsy vendor to design my invitation suite.  She had some images I loved and worked with me to get the colors and fonts and wording all worked out.  Then I printed them myself at the print shop at work, bought my belly bands and pocket envelopes and assembled it all myself.  I didn’t mind doing the labor part, but I have zero creative talent.  Etsy worked out great for me.

    I had an awful experience with an Etsy seller for my invitaitons. She had outstanding reviews…until me. Lol. I didn’t hear from her for over 2 weeks and I needed them ASAP. As soon as I filed a dispute with my credit card company, she contacted me. Yeah, don’t think so. She gave me a refund but I was left scrambling to find someone knew to make them.

    I bought thank you cards, escort cards, programs all from etsy. I did a lot of research and I’m REALLY picky. I was FLOORED when I received everything. I love everything that I ordered so much and it was always exactly the way I wanted it!

    I bought my invitations on Etsy! I was having trouble finding a place that would print like 10 invites, lol (intimate wedding), but I was able to find just what I wanted on Etsy! I didn’t want to print them myself because I’m too much of a perfectionist and I knew it would stress me out.

    I had a good experience! The invites are gorgeous and I can’t wait to mail them next week! On the other hand, my seller was reeeeaally slow to send them, because I ordered them like 5 months early. She kept being like, “Oh, I’ll send them soon! You have plenty of time!” which sort of irritated me.

    We used Invitations by Emily from Etsy after our original person bailed on us.  She was so easy to work with and very reasonably priced.  I would recommend her to anyone, we had a tight time frame and she was so accomodating.  I would definitely use Invitations by Emily!!!

    @Bri1o:  Well the invitation suite cost $60 (Std, Invite, RSVP, and Thank you card). For Vistaprint I had a groupon ($17 for $70), so the total so far is about $97 and some of that is only because there was a mistake on the StD and I didn’t catch it until I already received the finished prints and had to redo them. Cry I mail the correct ones out on Friday and since I’m using postcards (only sending out about 75) postage should only cost me around $25.

    I’ll wait to print my invitations when I see another groupon deal.
