I ordered my envelopes from paperworks.com.  I got 250 ivory envelopes for around $25.00.  I got most of my paper and ribbon from Michaels, my ivory paper was from Office Depot.  I’ll try and add a photo if I can later!  Hope this helps!  Good luck!

I went to PapersandMore.com for my cardstock and whatnot. They had great prices and they had a unique color that I wanted.

The cardstock is 110Lb which means you HAVE to go to Kinko’s or Office Depot. It’s 59 cents/page for color but only 9 cents/page for Black ink which is what I used. I thought the black ink was classy on the champagne metallic. They had envelopes, too and they were so pretty! I did simple invites so if you want a pic let me know and I’ll email you some. I spent about $160 on pearlescent vellum, envelopes, and cardstock, plus ribbons, a hole puncher, and the cutting and printing of it all, plus 2 reams of extra paper to use as escort cards, programs, menus, etc. I need more vellum but I’ll buy regular vellum at Office Depot and I doubt anybody will notice. I LOVE the pearlescent kind though it’s gorgeous. 

What colors do you want to do them in? I felt like since i was doing simple invites, the papers I used really spruced them up and made them fancy. I didn’t want people to think my wedding was really casual because my invites were so casual.

Well, the 110Lb was good for a single panel invite. I don’t recommend it if you are folding it.

The paper I bought is actually GREAT folded. It’s thick but not too thick. Definitely thicker than regular paper. But a little less thick than, say, a greeting card. More like a lined 3×5 notecard. 

I think the thickness depends if you want folded invites or single panel ones.

I’m using actionenvelope.com

I’ve found that their prices are the best I’ve found and they will send you samples for $1 which can be discounted from your next order from them.  Also, they will print on the envelopes for an extra fee.
