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.
