I got mine from Vistaprint.  $115.00 for 100 invites & envelopes, 100 RSVP cards & envelopes, and an address stamp because I was too lazy to write out the return address on all of the envelopes 😛

Could you or a friend design them for you? I had mine printed at Catprint and I am paying 168 (including shipping+10% off) for 75 invites,RSVPS and 100 thank you notes. That includes envelopes too.

Vistaprint is cheapish and you can always find a free shipping or 25% off code online!

Is your budget $1 per invite?
If so, you’d pretty much have to DIY.

Inkscape.org is a great

Dafont.com has a lot of neat and free fonts

You can easily create a wedding invite on MS Word once you have the right image to work with (as background). Just use text-box.

You can buy kits at Michaels, but also look for groupons/coupon codes for Vistaprint! Consider doing postcard invites and online rsvps.

If you are doing postcard invites, look for Strathmore watercolour pads (that are letter sized). You can easily find invitation kits from art supply stores as well. I don’t find that Michael’s has got the best prices if you’re needing >50 invites.

I wished I didn’t get postcard sized pads as I needed more work — even though it looks a lot nicer in the end.

Specialty papers are cheapest from Staples. (Approx $0.10 per letter-sized sheet)

Try buying a printable design on Etsy and printing with Catprint.com. Alternately, you can sign up for e-mail coupons for AC Moore and Michael’s. Most weeks they have a 40% or 50% off one item coupon that you can use on a print your own invitation kit.

Other option: enlist a crafty friend for some DIY!
