Just wanted to share my DIY invitation suite. I did the design (Photoshop), printing (Canon MP510 inkjet) and paper-cutting (Kinko’s) myself. My Fiance and family helped with the assembly.
I started designing these soooo long ago. I was so happy after going to the post office today. What a feeling of accomplishment!

WOW! I hope mine turn out that good, where did you get the paper and the pockefolds? Those are my colors.

Pocketfolds (6″ square, color: dark blue) – paperandmore.com
Stardream RSVP envelopes, cardstock invitation backing (color: malachite), 6.5″ Square envelopes (Neenah Classic Crest, color: solar white) – paper-papers.com
Cardstock, 80lb 8.5×14 for belly bands, 80lb 8.5×11 for map/directions card, 130 lb 8.5×11 for everything else(Neenah Classic Crest, color: solar white) – paperpresentation.com
The reason why I chose the Neenah Classic Crest line is because it was the only paper I could find in a heavy weight that also came in 6.5″ envelopes and 8.5×14. If I had to do it over again I would change the 130lb to 100 or 110 lb paper. The 130 lb was really hard to cut and I am very lucky my printer took it. I have a sneaking suspicion that the printer was taking in the paper slightly crooked because the paper was too heavy.

These look great! I have been seeing the wrap-around label (it looks like you have that here) and have been wondering how the heck you do it! I am having my invitations designed and then printing them myself, but I am baffled by the wrap label!

omg..you should totally start your own wedding invitation shop. Those invitations look so professional and classy. Grats on getting them done yourself!!

Thank you everyone for the compliments!
The wrap around labels are so easy! I think everyone should do them! I used Avery 8.5×11″ full page shipping labels and then cut them down to size. For my 6.5″ envelopes I made them 7.5″ x 1.5″.
