So, for the record, I have no artistic ability so DIY would not be a good idea for me. Ok, so I went invitations shopping a loved these invites! It was a fold out pocket invite with everthing included (envelope, rsvp, directions, etc). It was 4 different types of paper. 3 were shimmery , I believe its called stardream paper. And the last one was a flower print which we are layering with. Then she was going to do several snowflake designs with a rhinestone in the center of each. She quoted us $8. If in CA btw. Thanks!

If it’s $8 an invite, I think that’s a lot of money. I believe you could get letterpress for that kind of pricing… and stardream paper is one of the more inexpensive papers. We looked around for invitations we liked in the $4 range (and there are plenty out there), but we didn’t love any of them, and we made our own for less than $2/invite.

I think that’s a lot. I looked at a few paper shops in town and the average for 125 pocketfold invites came out to around $600, which I still think is outrageous. I know you say that you’re not creative, but I don’t have an ounce of DIY in my bones, but I’m going to somehow make my own and it’s coming out to about $200 for all of them.

Sounds like your details are making them kinda expensive.. are they worth it to you? hey if you’ve got the budget and you love them, go for it but don’t forget you have to pay for postage too! I saw several invites that were very similar for much cheaper at kinkos. They have huge books you can go through
