I’m doing the 6×9 invitations and a postcard RSVP, both on their 100 lb. recycled matte paper. There will be no other enclosures and no inner envelope. Just wondering what I might be looking at for postage.
Edited to clarify why I’m asking: I’m really hoping my invites will only be 44 cents to mail because I adore the new love stamps they released this month. I don’t want to use the traditional wedding stamps and I’m hoping to avoid having to buy twice as much postage in order to use the stamps I want.

I ordered mine from there but I just did the usual, no 100lb recycled paper. I can’t see it being too much more though, if any

@Firefighter_Bride: Were yours 44 cents to mail, or more?
ETA: Just realized you’re in Canada. I know nothing of Canadian postage.

It says on the USPS that is will be the $.44 postage. Postcards are done to a flat rate if within the regulations for “postcard” I am doing the vistaprint (glossy) for invites but with a envelope. My RSVPs are homemade postcards (110 lb) without envelope and are posted at $.44.

I had 5.5″ x 4″ x 2 in envelopes from Vistaprint (for my graduation convocation and graduation dinner reception) – and they were regular Canadian postage. It should be the same for you.

I just got an invite from a friend who used vistaprint (and I’ve used them in the past but not for invites and I’ve always been happy with what I got). Hers looked really nice…my only piece of advice is to proofread big time – she had at least two mistakes in her invitation.

I’m also curious about this, we’re rethinking our invitations and we might go with VP because it’s by far the cheapest. I was thinking about a print-it-yourself kit but I ran into someone at Michael’s who said they used the kit and each one came up to $1.47 postage! I’m hoping to find out what people paid for a 6×9 VP invite with an RSVP enclosure.

I’ve posted about this a few times, but try looking into moxicopy.com
You can send them whatever paper you would like your invitations printed on, and they are much much cheaper than vistaprint, mainly because they don’t specifically specialize in wedding invitations. They will send you a proof first for free as well!

My brother is getting married in October and I am a bridesmaid. His fiance’s bridal shower is in July and I was in charge of invitations for the shower. I got a digital file made from etsy and printed them on vista print 6×9. They turned out great and were super easy to do.
