I’m am very excited! I was adament about having pocketfold invitations, but any of the ones I found online with 3+ inserts we’re either nonexistant or insanely expensive.
But, I found a graphic design student who will work with her professor to design them for me. And for only like $30.
So, I am preparing my inspiration for her. So please share your pocketfolds, weather DIY or purchased. Also, words of wisdom on must haves to include on inserts would be welcomed, too!

Ours were what I would call ridiculously expensive but I absolutely loved how they turned out. They are much more loverly and shimmery in person. We had the guest names added next to the chandelier by the calligrapher.

Cardsandpockets.com has very affordable pocketfolds. We’re going to order from them (I ordered a sample and it looks lovely), and get 4 inserts.
They have several different pocketfold styles and samples on the website. You can also have them print the invitation you designed.

@manutd1125: Yeah, that’s where I’m purchasing the pocketfolds themself. But have a GD student design the actual invite + inserts

We DIY-ed these, with the help of our friend who is a graphic designer and used to be in the invitation business. I would say keep it as simple as possible if you are DIY-ing them. We had 4 layers and it was way too much work and they came out pricy too. I would have been happy paying the same price for 2 layers assembled for us!

My hubby designed all of our stationary (inlcuding our awesome monogram!) and I put it all together. We bought the pocketfolds from Cards and Pockets for pretty cheap. I loved them and thought they were soooo worth the money and work!
