These invitations took months to create. I went through tons of
different designs. I always wanted a Damask print, but I couldn’t find
one in a high resolution. In the end I found it and took them to the
printer (Kinko’s! :)). I could have been okay with only 3 inserts and
1 backing on the main panel, but whatever.
Supplies: (All from Paperandmore.com)
Green Fairway Metallic <span class=”highlight”>Pocketfold Invitation Card, A7 Himalaya
A7 Champagne Metallic Envelopes
Champagne Metallic Paper 80# Text
Champagne Metallic Card Stock 107#
Orange Flame Metallic Cardstock 105#
Pink Azalea Metallic Cardstock 105#
Acid Free Glue (Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive)
Xyron Adhesive Runner
I got my Damask print from http://shop.mujka.ca/damaskseamlesspattern/prod_7.html
. I used the Adobe Illustrator file and it is AWESOME quality. If you
use the jpeg that she offers, its not so good. I paid $3.60 for the
entire set of files. I thought that was an awesome price.

My friend started wanting to DIY her invites too. She wanted to design her invites the way she envisioned them to be. During her course of research, she stumbled on a supplier who said can provide pocketfolds, print and assemble them for her. The price she was given was not only within her budget but even cheaper than if she makes it herself. At first she was skeptical. I would be too. They didn’t have a website and was just under a listing of supplier of some sort of wedding page. But the cheap price got a hold of her and she took the risk. I don’t recommend this to everyone. She’s more risk-taker than any of us. 🙂
Anyway to make the story short, she got her square pocketfold with 3 cards and 1 envelope at only $1.8 per invite — with print already and the design was hers (so technically speaking it is half DIY 🙂 They came out great.
They now have a website http://www.CraftMasterInvitations.com
