I’m trying to keep my budget down and want to know everyone’s experience ordering the digital invitations/save the dates off of etsy. i’ve never done that before and am wondering how the cost compares to ordering from an online invitation store? Any advice would be great! And if you have a photo of the finished product, I’d love to see it!

I didn’t go the Etsy route, but we did design our own invites and have them printed at FedEx/Kinkos. Or, well, my brother, who’s a digital designer, designed them. So we basically ended up with a digital file, same as you would receive from Etsy. We were able to print them onto nice stock at FedEx/Kinkos VERY cost effectively. It’s definitely worth looking into, in my opinion! Unless, of course, you find a great deal or steal online. 🙂

@amandasouthcarolina: You’re welcome! I should also mention that we were VERY pleased with the results!

@amandasouthcarolina: We bought menu cards and escort cards off Etsy for three reasons:
1) I just couldn’t find the design I wanted anywhere else.
2) It was significantly cheaper on Etsy than anywhere else.
3) I could order a weird number, like 62. Other vendors make you order in large quantities, like 50, 75, or 100. This way we could get a couple extra without spending a lot more money.
When it came to invitations, I wanted a very specific level of quality and I wanted to be able to see and touch the invitation before committing. So we ordered invitations from William Arthur through Papyrus.
