    $19 per invite is pretty high IMO. (But this is coming from a girl renting vintage furniture so it depends where you wanna put the budget.) also, letterpress is typically more expensive. Ours are coming out to around $10/invite for the entire suite with addresses, done by an invitation designer locally. 

    But, remember you’re also not ordering 150 invitations. IE: we are inviting 190 guests but will only need 110 invites. 

    However, if it’s in your budget, go for it! I love the look of letterpress.

    For a total of 180 invitations, 150 RSVP postcards, 30 reception cards, and 150 information cards – I just paid $235 (which included shipping) with Vistaprint with their sale – and I just ordered mine yesterday.

    I started searching for an invite from day 1 of being engaged, and had my heart set on some very pretty ones from Wedding Paper Divas – as nothing spoke to me. But… they would have been around $500, and that was just too much money. So, I found a design I was OK with on Vistaprint and went with it. It’s paper, the majority of people will throw it away.

    pisces315:  Check out TheSmallPrinter on etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/SmallPrinter). I wanted letterpress as well, but couldn’t stand the thought of paying upwards of $15 per set before postage. Then I found Andre and he worked with me to custom design and print out a full invitation suite. I can’t remember specific costs, but I want to say that it came out to $4.50 or $5.00 for the whole set – invitations, inserts, RSVP cards, pre-addressed return envelopes for the RSVPs, inner envelopes, and outer envelopes.

    And the quality was literally to die for! I mailed out invitations for my May wedding in March and people have been raving about them since then. A few of my mom’s friends actually ended up using him for their daughter’s weddings.

    Good luck!

    pisces315:  if its in your budget-go for it.

    I spent $623 for 135 invites & response cards. To me even that was high-I had beautiful invites but to spend that much on paper that people will just throw away?? I couldn’t spend $19 per invite.

    120 letterpressed: 220 dollars.  But they were designed by my SIL and she “knows a guy” here in Prague, so it was vastly less espensive than it would have been in the U.S.

    Personally I can’t imagine paying $19 an invite! 19×150 would be more than we spent on the whole wedding! But if you love them and they are in your budget, why not!

    We are going with the same Etsy seller that did our STDs. It will be $125 for 100 invites. Nothing fancy, but nice, tasteful, and mor ein line with what we want to spend.

    We are having a fairly small wedding, and needed only 55 invites so we decided to go for invites we really liked (letter pressed, fine gold foil on very very thick cardboard) to suit our 1920s inspired wedding, which came at around the $10 mark each, which was expensive for us but I still look at my mums invite and fall deeply in love with them over and over 😀

    I made mine, and they came to roughly $4 each including postage (plus the HOURS upon HOURS of crafting time). I absolutely adore how they came out though. They are not letterpressed, but still look beautiful. I purchased the invite and three insert cards from Vistaprint, and the cardstock for the mounting and belly bands, the pocketfold, inner envelopes, outer envelopes and rsvp envelopes from Cards and Pockets, and sticker paper to make beautiful wrap around labels from staples. I made about 125 invites total and, although it was a TON of work, it was definitely worth it to save so much money.

    I got mine from Michael’s, it was less than $1 an invite for pocketfold invites, RSVP card and envelope, twine, and invite envelope and I liked them a lot better than any I could find online.
