I’m DIYing via C&P.  It took me awhile to get the hang of all the pieces, etc, since their site seems to be more friendly toward designers than end users.  And I imagine that’s the majority of their clientele – many of my friends went to stationery designers and bought $8/invites that I could tell were C&P.  I’m convinced I can make the same thing for $3.50/piece (that’s asking C&P to do the majority of the printing/assembly).

I’m lucky to have a friend that’s offered to create to .pdf design for the invitation and enclosure cards.  Check with any design-oriented friends.  The other option is to see if you could purchase a .pdf design from Etsy sellers that fits C&P format and then do the rest yourself.  

I ordered a sample invite as well as color swatches from all the colors I was contemplating.  It helped me narrow it down to my color choices.  I was lucky to have just received an obviously C&P invite in the mail for a friend’s wedding who also went to a pricy stationer.  Seeing it helped so I’d definitely recommend ordering the sample. 

Let me know if you need any help – once you’ve got the package/parts sorted out, it’s just a matter of knowing/hiring someone who could do the pdf designs to specs.

I agree, they are beautiful. I went to Micheal’s craft store, bought some paper, and played around. I knew I wanted to save money, so I ‘had’ to cut as 12×12 in half. I then played around with different folds, etc. I watched a few tutorials, and then made my own design. Once they are finished, I will be posting them for sure.
