I’m planning on getting mine done at Staples.  $0.08/pg for black and white!  I’m sure its not too bad for colour either 🙂

My friend/designer is printing our things today at Staples, it’s gonna cost about $400-450 for the invitation, rsvp postcard, accommodations card, directions card, and reception card- we are doing pocket folds so we need all thos cards.

We are getting 130 of EACH card too!

Also had STD’s printed at Staples for about $75-90 (can’t remember exactly).

Keep looking!

We had a friend design the invites and are having them printed at http://www.cardsandpockets.com

The proofs are actually on their way here now, so I can’t speak to how good they turned out, but they’ve been really helpful and their prices are ridiculously low.

When I was looking, I also came across http://www.envelopperinc.com. They print, it looks nice.

You might want to ask the printers if they do digital printing – that’s cheaper than having to run it through a press but might be better quality than Kinkos (print shops tend to have better attention to detail in my professional experience).

Of course the nice thing about Kinkos is that you could always send them a very small to do as a test run – then you’re not committed to a whole job if you don’t like it.

I went with an online printer. Overnightprints.com. I got 100 double sided 5×7 postcard with rounded edges. 15pt cardstock for like 35 dollars with a coupon. 🙂

We are in the same boat.  FH designed the invitation suite.  Invite, 2 enclosures, RSVP ,and envelopes.  The printer quoted me $400 for 125 inivites.  That includes printing the addresses and the return address on the A7 envelopes. It also includes all the paper and the cutting. 

After falling in love with paper from cardsandpockets I submitted our design for a quote and never heard back from them.  I also sent 3 follow up emails.

I designed my invitations and had them printed through Allied Graphics.  For the invitation, RSVP card, and reception card (with maps printed on the back) it cost about $300 for embossed ink.  We had almost 200 invitations printed, and they cut the cardstock for us.  Check them out online!

I had my invitations printed at my local university’s professional print shop.  It was much less expensive!  I did supply my own paper and I will put the invitations together myself.

everyone already gave a ton of amazing options for printing so i don’t have anything to add about that… but we went to kinko’s to cut our invites and they had us do it ourselves for free.
