Our local newpaper has books and books of invite samples to look through, so does the party store, and the place I ordered mine from sent me samples first so I could feel all the paper and see the colors.

Paper Source has books of proofs you can look through and feel.  Then you can order through them.

BurlapnLace:  Michael’s may not carry all of the different styles that are available online, but they do carry them in the stores.  Joann Fabric & Craft stores have them too.

BurlapnLace:  When we were engaged, FI and I went to papyrus to rifle through their books and talk to someone about invites.  We found one we loved and were happy to see the whole set in front of us — and then realized we could get it online for a much better deal.  I’m so glad we got to see it first, though — I’m very indecisive!  I definitely recommend going to Papyrus or Paper Source to talk to someone one on one and see some beautiful sets.

You could order samples from WeddingPaperDivas. They have promos all the time for 8 free samples. Minted has the same type of deals. I literally have a box filled with sample invites I’ve collected over the years. Other than that, every Michaels I have been to has had invitations in stock. They won’t have every style listed on their website, but it will give you a good indication of what you’re looking for. Hobby Lobby is the same. My friend went to a local party supply store and they had binders and binders and binders full of various invites that we spent an entire day looking through. If you are DIY’ing the invites, you could even purchase cardstock from craft stores to determine color choices, or order from places like cardsandpockets.com that has all of their color samples ready for purchasing. There are dozens of options out there for you!

I got mine at http://www.AnnsBridalBargains.com. They will let you pick your favorite invites to get samples of without a code or anything.

 

Walmart will also send samples but you cannot pick which invites you would like to sample.
