I designed invites for a friend using Cards and Pockets, and the result was very nice. Along with several inserts, a ribbon and seal around the outside, and an inner and outer envelope, I think her postage was still the regular wedding invitation rate ($0.58). 

When you receive your sample, I recommend making a mock-up with the amount of inserts you’ll be using (preferably with the same weight of paper that  you’ll be using) and envelopes, and take it to your post office to have them weigh it.  If it qualifies for the $0.58 stamp, they might also be able to tell you how many more ounces you could add and still stay within the appropriate range.  If you’re close to the maximum weight, you’ll have to be careful to not add anymore extras to your invites!

Hi Deonise,

It’s a really good idea that you have a mock up of the invite.  My invites are square and not that light.  I’ve been to 2 different postal offices, weighted on the machine, and even went to the street trucks (most expensive rate)…all with different rates.  I’ll probably go with whomever has the best rate and hope that they don’t get sent back.  Word of advice on the RSVPs, if you can and on a budget, go with the postcards.  It’s a cheaper stamp and it adds up.  Beware of the rsvps with envelopes, too small can demand extra postage.  Yes, those blood suckers!  Good luck!
