Cards and Pockets has some really great options, and they are always adding new services. That is where I am ordering from, and they are going to be about $3.00, including postage.

Try cardsandpockets.com, paperandmore.com and envelopperinc.com.  I think paper and more has the best prices for just about everything from pockets to envelopes.

Hmm, I’d check out envelopments.com  Would you be willing to go the DIY or Semi-DIY route?  That might make things more affordable.

I agree cards and pockets have awesome prices. I have been buying all of my cardstock from there.

I purchased my pocketfolds online and then had a gal design, print and cut the invites.  I put them together.  If my printer was better, I would have considered doing it myself.

I got everything from paperandmore.com then I printed them at kinkos and cut them on a paper cutter.  I’ve gotten so many compliments and people can’t believe I did them myself.

I got a Brides’ line pocketfold invitation set from Michaels and just printed them myself. Not a lot of DIY involved, other than printing and putting everything together. They looked great and guests really liked them, so you might try going that semi-DIY route! We ended up spending about $3 for each, including stamps.

I also got the Brides pocket invitations. what a pain in the behind. I didn’t want inkjet ink to smear once they got to people in the mail  (I’ve seen smeared invitations before and they look cheap and tacky) and the 5×7" paper doesn’t fit into laser printers (didn’t realize this ahead of time) , so I actually had to call a bunch of print places to find out if they could accomodate, then sent them to the printer to be copied. I had to make a million adjustments so the design was sure to fit the size of the card, so I had to do a bit of back and forth. Getting the right font and design along with the right spacing and then assembling took hours upon hours. I wouldn’t reccommend going this route unless you start months in  advance and you can take your time. Seriously, I would have rather just ordered them already done. I haven’t gotten them posted yet but I anticipate at least another $1.20 each. They would come up to $2.50-3 each with postage. Fairly low cost when factoring in that it is a pocket invite, but when you think about the length of time I had to devote to them, JUST CRAZY. I purchased a different color ribbon for tying around the card to match my wedding colors since the invitation theme was black.

I purchased my pocketfolds from The Paper Cut for about $1.25 each.  I also purchased heavy cardstock with a metallic sheen (8×10 size) and matching envelopes from the same company.  I designed the inserts myself and had them printed and cut at a local print shop for $30.  Each invite came to about $2 each.  I’ll be posting photos tonight of my invites on my blog at http://www.xanga.com/strawberrybaby78  Feel free to check it out tonight.

I went through this website to order mine: http://southwestannouncements.com/flanfranco.html I got the "Tia" invite.

The qualitiy is great, heavy cardstock and everything arrived in one neat package. I haven’t printed the invites yet, but I do the save-the-dates on the same paper, and they look great. My father has a nice laserjet printer, so I just used that and had no problems with ink smearing.
