I DIY’ed my own invites using an off-white 180# with 330GSM and loved the quality and results.

I didn’t letterpress (I actually started out embossing my invites but later gave way to flat print) but still wanted a cotton-based, luxurious paper and received so many compliments.

My invitations were 5″x7″ with 4.25″x5.5″ RSVP postcards, and the envelope was lined with 32 lb. liners. I do believe we had to pay additional postage (.65 I think it was), but there was definitely plenty of room in there so I wouldn’t worry about everything fitting. It might be a bit snug with all of your inserts but not a problem. =]

I used the Holyoke paper.  I loved it!  My one advise is not to use the ink that it comes with the L Letterpress machine.
