I purchased some DIY invitation kits from Michaels a few months ago. The design isn’t my favorite, but the colors are perfect and they were ridiculously cheap. Problem is, my darn printer is unable to print custom sizes, and my invitations are 5.7″ squares! GAH!
I’m now looking for alternatives, and I’m trying to figure out the most inexpensive way to go about doing invitations. I know it’s early per my date, but my goal is to get as much done this summer before school starts in the fall, as I’ll be intensely involved in school up until a month before my wedding.
So, can you awesome ladies show my your inexpensive invitations? Please share how much they cost per invite (excluding postage) and where you got them/how you did them! Any advice for the cheapest sites you’ve found or ordered from is definitely welcome!

@PaisleyMedic: can you go to Staples or something and use their printers? I did the Michael’s invites and they came out great. I got so many compliments on them. They’re really easy so don’t give up on them.

We are having a VERY small wedding. We were able to buy one box of customizable invitations from Target that were on clearance for $12! We purchased some yellow ribbon to replace the navy ribbon, and voila! DONE! I’m trying to find them on Target, but looks like they aren’t sold there anymore… Basically, they were a navy damask print with a white card overlay and a small yellow ribbon. I’ll see if I remember to take a picture this evening and comment back.
I see that your printer won’t print special sizes, check out: http://www.WeddingPaperDivas.com and http://www.Zazzle.com They are great sources as well!
Zazzle had a Groupon for a while. We were able to get 75 Reception invites with shipping to our home for $65. We were able to customize the font and wording, and preview right on the website. When they came in, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality. Nice, thick, postcard type paper.
We used this design from Zazzle http://www.zazzle.com/country_wooden_rustic_mason_jar_wedding_invitation-161110094091706601

Ha! I was finally able to figure out how to print the darn square invitations. That was a terribly annoying process! But I’m still not sure that I like the invitations I have. I’d still love to see more inexpensive invites!!
