    I found a design I liked and contacted the artist, Angela Hardison. She printed our letterpress invite, rsvp, and thank you notes – plus matching white envelopes. The price was over 1k, but depending on the paper, number of colors, type of envelopes it could have been less.

    Vistaprint – got STDS, invites, reception, directions, RSVP and thank you’s with envelopes for 60 invites (100 TY’s) for a little under $400 – Vistaprint is ALWAYS running some type of special.  And when they make a mistake, they are quick to correct, for free.

    A friend of FI’s family designed the invitation and enclosures based on discussions with us and images of designs we liked. We had the invitations and enclosures printed through CatPrint.com and we bought the pocketfold and envelopes through CardsandPockets.com. My mom and I assembled them all over Christmas and now FI and I are slowly addressing all of the invitations.

    Including postage for the invitation and the RSVP, the invitations will cost around $575 for 125.

    I used a monogram from Weddingchicks.com for my invitiations and designed them myself in Publisher.  I am printing them from home.

    I also designed our STD in Publisher.  I used overnightprints.com to print the postcards – GREAT quality.  I got 500 STDs for under $75.00… (that sounds funny lol)

    I looked at a bunch of different websites, but I had something very specific that I wanted. I ended up finding something at weddingpaperdivas that was pretty much exactly what I wanted so I got everything there.

    My good friend designed them for us and then we had them printed at the printers. For 175 invites, envelopes, info cards, RSVP cards and pre-addressed envelopes we paid $130.

    I’ve been on vistaprint a lot and was sure I’d be using them…but…. honestly I havent found anything that kinda matches my colours very well :( There were one or 2 designs I could “settle with”, but they are very plain. THEN I discovered “Zazzle” the other day and thay have sooooooooooo many more designs and they are beautiful and not badly priced. When you sign up for an account the prices get cheaper somehow?? lol

    But the design Im choosing I think is only like 1.20 each I think? that includes envelopes and obviously printing. I will have to get rsvps as well which will be another buck or so each…

    I thought of doing DIY Micheals but Ive had a hand in those before and printing them is such a pain especially if the paper has “texture” to it (some ink rubbed off etc…) so I just want it done for me

    I DIYed mine. It took forever, but I was happy with the final product! :)

    I got my invitations through Wedding Paper Divas. I ordered the Radiant Names invitation in their Custom Type Collection. They are absolutely gorgeous! One of their designers helped to adjust the color and font until they were perfect. They were extremely prompt over email. I waited until the site was offering 20% off and was able to get around 110 invitations and RSVP cards for a little under $300.

    I designd them in Photoshop and ordered the cardstock, envelopes, and pocketfolds from http://www.cardsandpockets.com

    I don’t remember the exact price, but it was very affordable. I think they’ll print them too, if you want.
