I’m in the DMV area as well. Have you considered purchasing an invitation suite template and taking it to your local printers? Some of them will do thermography, which might be in your budget. And you can always purchase the card stock, mats, pockets, etc. yourself. 

I don’t have a particular printing company to recommend as I am still in my research phase. I’m debating about purchasing invitation suites online vs. having them printed and put together.

I used theamericanwedding.com  quality was great, nice thick card stock. We got them in the mail last week, excellent company.  If you go with them, be sure to google for coupons for them, I got one which took 75 bucks off my order. They were so cheap I was nervous, but they had excellent reviews and the product really is nice. Plus easy to use customizer on their website, so user friendly…I swear I don’t work for them, just a happy customer!

cbj9:  Did you dislike the designs or the quality of Wedding Paper Divas? I got all of our stationery from there and customized the heck of out them. It was a really smooth process. And then I bought other supplies (envelope liners, tissue paper, etc) from Cards and Pockets. I haven’t broken down the cost per suite, but it was way, way cheaper than I would’ve paid otherwise.

cbj9:  what about Etsy? Lots of invite choices and they may also do the printing.

I preferred elli.com to both minted (too twee for what I’m going for) and WPD (some of my samples were off center, none of the designs really wowwed me, paper was meh).

My elli.com samples were gorgeous.  The paper is really nice and the samples were printed well.  2 of the 3 samples I ordered are strong contenders where as 1 of 8 of my WPD samples/2 of 10 minted samples would have been acceptable but just OK.

cbj9:  that is enough for letterpress! I searched high and low for affordable letter press and I found this lovely husband/wife letterpress company-  9$/suite. My samples were lovely, def going to use them.

The Dandelion Patch and Paper Source both should have optionsin that price range.  My invitations were foil pressed from Minted and people loved them.
