I’ve seen some of their other styles in the store. The paper quality is ok. Not super think or anything but decent.

I looked at theirs and I agree with Pashmina. Now Michael’s has some DIY invite kits and I think the paper quality is so much better plus they always have 40% coupons you can use. It would cost next to nothing.

i looked at target and i really liked some of them…i ended up buying from michaels though they were haveing buy one get one free at the time so i got all my invitations for like $40. I have to say though my boss just did invitations for his parents 60th birthday with target DIY invites and i really liked how they turned out its actually what made me go look at target in the first place.

My mother bought some pretty red invites from Target for our engagement party, and the ink smeared when she used both an inkjet printer and the bigger one in her office. (She also took it to a print shop and it smeared there as well). Not sure if the problem were specific to the invites, but you may want to google around to see if that’s common.

A coworker of mine used Target’s DIY invitations and was super pleased with them.

Mine are from Target and I’ve been VERY pleased with them.  I ran them through my work laser printer w/no problems.  Not sure if the link below will work, but these are mine and I added a paper belly band with a pearl embellishment to jazz it up some.

For $39, buy it, check it out and if you’re not happy, return it.  When I bought mine from Target, the package was already open.  I asked the cashier if I could return them as long as everything was still accounted for and she said yes.  It can’t hurt to check them out and see/feel them.

Yes, I bought these ones here:

They are made by Gartner Studios called Letter Impress; they are faux letterpress style invites for those who love the look but can’t afford the hefty price tag.

I got lots of compliments on them, I ran them through my inkjet printer and had no problems whatsoever. I tried running them through a laser printer/copier and they smudged so I don’t recommend that…

I found the quality of these ones to be great, they weren’t cheap and flimsy and the paper had a nice texture to it along with the raised image to give it a “letterpress” feel.

I made them custom by using a rounded paper punch and printed all the envelopes individually and made a monogram return “stamp” on the back of the envelope.

A lot of people thought that I had them professionally made.

I would definitely recommend this route.

I also used the LetterImpress invites from Target that Lux used, except I used the orchid ones. I agree that they were of great quality for the price and very easy to work with. I think thats also the brand they carry at Michaels

I used a Target kit and I received lots of compliments on them. I did jazz them up a bit by adding a belly band. I wish I had seen the ones you’re considering-they’re beautiful!
