I am thinking about looking into ordering the design of my save the dates/invites/reply cards from an Etsy designer and then having them printed up and cut at Kinko’s. Has anyone ever done this before? Is it more cost effective than ordering them from a stationary company? Do they come out nice? Trying to cut corners money-wise any way we can, but if there is any chance that my invite suite will not come out looking nice, then I would rather not take the chance! Thanks ladies!

Just saw your post, what did you decide. I have invitations I ordered already because I love them, but need to get them printed. I am going to loose some of cost because I will be addressing the envelpes and I am not sending response cards, you an either RSVP on our website, email us or call us. that saves on postage as well as additoinal printing.

Not sure if it still applies I looked into this but they were the most expensive of all the printer options. So I axed it.

@creeative1: I didn’t print my invites with Fedex or Kinkos because they were made by an Etsy seller, but I had to add a map to my invitation suite that I created myself on the computer. I ended up using a local Fedex to print my maps and they came out fine. Was only $1.77 to print 15 pages on cardstock that I brought in and they did it while I waited.

We used them to print our seating chart (one big board to be displayed), our welcome bag notes and our programs. They did a great job!

I’m using Office Depot for mine. $0.62 per page for color, printed on pearlescent cardstock. Price includes the cardstock. I priced Kinkos, and they were I think $0.55 per page for color, NOT including the cardstock.

We got married in 2011 and I printed ours myself at Kinkos and cut them there as well… $0.56 per page for color, I think the total cost was $50 or so for the invite, map insert, and RSVP card. It’s a pain in the butt to cut them yourself but it does save money.
