I played hooky from work on Wednesday for FI’s birthday this week… so we went invitation perusing (his idea!).
We waltzed into our local Paper-Source Store and found amazing invitations that we both loved! The only problem is that we didn’t love the price…
The sales associate at Paper-Source was amazing and told us that we could cut costs by assembling on our own (awesome!) and that she would even show us how to do it. My only concern is that our invites are still going to total in over budget!!
Grr… and I can’t save the pic, so here is the link!

I swear I saw something similiar to this at michaels! And I just got an email that the price of invites were lowered and there is a 40% off coupon!

You could make your own template in photoshop (text and graphics) and then print using vistaprint.com or some other service.

You could definitely find a design like that on etsy.

I’ve seen similar DIY kits at Michael’s and Target.

Why not buy their stamp for $10.00? It is easy to print your own. You could get plain white paper and envelopes at a craft store in packs of 50. My daughter and SIL did their own for pennies each. You could practice with the stamp or add a little more embellishment if you wanted to.

How much are they? I’d check Etsy too. I’ve seen several with that design,so if you find anything, ask for a sample first to be sure it’s what you want.

Michaels has these – which are similar but black – michaels was great! sometimes they run buy one get one on bridal stuff which is how i scored my sweet invitations from them for 29.99…but they also have coupons all the time 20 and 40 percent off
also if you ARE looking for brown, these are really pretty – also from michaels
and these are really really pretty, when you see them close up

AAANNNDDDD did I mention that they’re letterpress? I know the letterpress always adds a HUGE bump to the price. We preferred the shiny paper, which is letterpress only. If we went with a flat color, we could do digital printing which would save money, but not a lot.
Have any of you had personal experience with letterpress DIY? How did it turn out?

i downloaded clipart from weddingclipart.com (free trial) to play around with
then recoloured it in Photoshop. I’m using the art for all my invites, just changing it up a bit – Save The Date’s…
they may have some clipart similar for you to play around with?
