I’ll start!!!! We’re getting them from The Memory Trunk on Etsy (she is very slow to communicate so beware!) and we paid about $3.20 an invite/rsvp suite

Here is mine!  I made my own RSVP card but dont’ have a picture of the entire ensemble.  The invitations are from minted.com and cost $100 for 50.

I designed our invites, and we had them printed through Catprint. For 50 sets (250 pieces) it cost us just over $100 with shipping. This doesn’t include the bellybands, monograms, or envelopes.

FI and I made our invites, and they came out to about $6 per invite.  More than your average diy due to some lessons learned, but I think less than had we bought them through a professional.  I’m so proud of them!

I’ve made a few sets of invites now lol.  Here are the pocketfold ones I did for my wedding (approx $2 each, DIY with supplies from paperandmore)

Invite #2 (less than $0.50 each, DIY with supplies from paperandmore)

My most recent invite, this is a sample I made for my friend’s wedding, I think this are going to come about to about $2-$3 each.

Everything was designed on my computer using photoshop and indesign, then printed on my canon pixma

@HelloRaeven:  I bought two invitation kits at Michael’s and paid $40 for 80 invitations (had a 40% off coupon). I then designed the invitations myself and then printed them at my FI’s work. We paid 36 cents per colored ink invite to print. So in total, we paid $70 for all of our invitations. So about 87 cents per invitation.

This is the nearly done version (I did re-center the info card so that everything lined up correctly).

I made ours in photoshop, and then had them printed at Staples (postcards were printed there as well, but took a couple of weeks to process). The total cost (including striped bags, string, and tickets) was less than $200, for 100 invitations.

@elysion:  Love it! i was thinking about doing that and planting the RSVPs, and yeah, that paper is expensive! I’ve looked at a few different places now. Love your invites 🙂
