There are many website where you can find similar to what you want and get prices. Basic Invite, Etsy, Vista Print, Zazzle can all give you a price range.

aliddaw :  I purchased ours from Zazzle, used a groupon. It was about $2 each. I made the mistake of buying 1 per guest, not 1 per couple…. So I over spent. :/ 

However, I did cost compare DIY. For us DIY only saved about $20-40 total (before my mistake of course)… But added a ton more time and energy. I had lots to do and felt $20-40 wasn’t as big of a savings as I was thinking.

If you wanted to go the quick route (like I am haha), get them at Costco! I think $0.69 per card, cheaper if you bundle.

We are buying a template from Etsy – $15- $30 depending on what invitation suite we buy. We will print them as custom cards from Costco and it’ll be about $50 for 75 invitations.

We had an Etsy store print them, small guest list so we splurged a little. $400 for 26 invites with each guests name & addressed, belly bands, monogram. DIY could be a lot less than this, but if you want them foil embossed you’d probably spend a couple hundred on your own equipment to do it.

You can really get them at at price range! $1.27 each on Shutterfly or $9 each for letterpress. I think Minted has great middle range invitations at about $3 each!

Personally, we are spending about $5 per invitation, although it ends up being $9 per suite since we are including an inclosure and RSVP card. We also have a “smaller” guest list (about 110 people) so we are splurging a little bit.

aliddaw :  

We got 100 invites, response cards and envelops for less than $70 from Vista print on sale. Envelopes were free. Vista print did a 60% off sale in April and we stacked as many coupon codes (retail me not!!) as we could.  On etsy, we got a custom template that we could print from for $18, but there are some that are much cheaper.

We made belly bands and little chevrons to glue on and make it 20s themed. We got the idea from downloadandprint.com, and the additions were only 50 cents of paper from Michaels for all invites.

This was acutally cheaper than printing ourselves. Printer ink is super expensive, and places like kinkos doesn’t have as great quailty. On sale at vistaprint, ended up much cheape especially with free envelopes.

We are doing pocketfold invites, with 2 inserts and RSVP card + return envelope. The numbers are for 21 invites

Pocketfolds of Amazon: £30

30* Invites, inserts (2x), RSVP, and printed envelope from Vistaprint: £106 after 50% off and the linen cardstock upgrade

Ribbon, backing paper, front decor for pocketfolds, envelopes: ~£40

Total: £176

*We needed invites in two languages, with the Vistaprint order sizes that took us up to 30 invites total – which was good cause Fiance suddenly remembered that his father has siblings, too.

The actual invite cards though were £25, I think? It is all the extra stuff that made things expensive for us. Twenty-nine of our 33 guests will be traveling and we really wanted to include accommodation information and directions with the invitations. That made pocketfolds “the logical decision” and things spiraled a little from there.

 

ETA: If you want foil printing, have a look at catprint. We ordered their samples and actually liked the overall quality much better than vistaprint. The issue was that vistaprint had a design we liked and I couuldn’t find anything similar to use with catprint.
