I got an email from Michael’s the other day advertising their weekly sale. I noticed that their Anna Griffin invite sets were on sale for $20 — pretty much half off (they range from $40-$50 normally). So tonight FI and I went to look at them and we both fell in love with the black and cream damask ones, and bought two boxes (we need around 50 invites, and there are 30 in each box, so I figure we have a good 10 to mess up on :P).
In these boxes you get coordinating invites, RSVP cards, thank you cards, envelope seal stickers, and envelopes for everything, and you print them yourselves so they’re still pretty customizable.
So they were originally $40 each, which would have been a total of $80. But they were on sale for $20 each, half off, so we got the lot for $40. And on top of that I had a 25% off coupon, which applied even to sale items, so we got the whole lot for $30! That’s like 50¢/invite!! Saved $50, almost 70%.
I know it’s way early for us to be thinking about invitations yet but this was a deal we just could not pass up, and we both really love these invites — these are exactly what I have been trying to find online but couldn’t find a damask print that I didn’t hate.
Since we got these so dang cheap I think I may add a light green-colored pocketfold to this and include an info card that points to our website, wrap it up in a belly band, and use the provided envelopes as outer envelopes (as long as the pocketfold + belly band will fit inside the envelope — I’ll order a sample when I’m ready to do invites to make sure).
AAAH I’m so excited! Here are some (horrifically bad) pictures:
