I printed mine at a local print shop.  They were able to offer a variety of printing options.  Try looking in your local phone book or Googling printing stores nearby your home.  They might be able to offer you more options or ideas.

We also used a local printer who used thermography. They turned out great about $1 per invite (including inserts and envelopes)

We used a local print shop — AlphaGraphics here in Jacksonville, Fl. They have so many different options and gave us such a great deal! I know you’re in Jersey, but check them out, you can find them online!

Good Luck!

We printed ours on an inkjet at home because when I designed them (in Publisher) it was in RGB color. None of the area printers use that – it’s all in CMYK and it made the light pink come out peachy/orangey. It took so long to get the right pink that it wasn’t worth it to me to change it, plus they all said light pink and yellow are very difficult to get in CMYK and I’d be better off doing it myself. So just a word to the wise be aware of that when you are designing it – if you are printing samples, print them on the actual printer you want to use, whether it’s your own or a store’s.

I’m having them printed at a local print shop. (I investigated having them printed online, and it was a similar price, but I like being able to see the proof and paper options in advance, plus I love supporting local businesses!) I found the shop cuz we’ve used them at work.

We’re having 170 invitations, envelopes, 2-sided rsvp, and 2-sided info cards printed in black and white on really nice shimmery cream paper for about $150.
