Since we’re out of the country, my FH and I have decided to not do DIY invitations. Do you have any recommendations for online places to get invitations? Ideally, they could custom print what we’d like to say. While we have someone in the US who can gather stuff together and help us mail them, I think it’d be too difficult to ask them to worry about printing stuff on blank cards.

I had my invites custom done by an absolutely amazing Etsy designer who did everything we wanted, and most of her invites average only $4 an invite. Her name is Karissa, she’s based in Boston, and she runs Kiss n’Tell Cards. Here’s her Etsy store:

RedStamp.com has pretty, custom invites and they can even mail them for you (for a fee), if you need!
Wedding Paper Divas (mentioned above) has nice invites, too.

I bought invites from Wilton online, then printed what I wanted at home.
They come with everything you need but the stamps!

I used Carlson Craft (www.carlsoncraft.com). However, online for some of the invites you are limited to what text you can include due to formatting.
However- I found what I liked online and then went to a local printer. If you go through a printer you can change pretty much whatever you want (paper, ink color, font, etc.).
An added bonus- printers give you 10 to 20 percent off the online catalog price.
So, if you have someone in the states, perhaps they can place the order for you?
My printer was able to send me PDF proofs and fax stuff which would help you being abroad.
Oh- and my 100 invites- with envelopes (including printed return addresses), RSVP cards and envelopes- were only $200.
