You might also want to try looking for a partial DIY kit.  They do the printing and such and you get to put it all together.  A ton of the invitation companies offer these types of kits and it will save you a bunch of $$$.  Off the top of my head I can’t think of where I last saw these, but I’m sure plenty of other bees will.

 Good luck and let us know what you find!

 tell her cheryl austin reffered you. she has a few great deals. i’m taking advantage of the gate fold design that comes with envelope and rsvp card for only 1.95 for all.

she has cheap and more expensive designs. her 2.00 design has the works…she’s really something! i’ll attach a photo of the design i chose but mine will be in black and red.

i found some cheap wedding invitations http://www.wedding-supplies.com photo wedding invitations can also be put on there for the same price.  they’re only .37 cents!  you can mix and match the font and art available.  or better yet my friend couldn’t find a graphic art that she liked on there, but they let her send in her own pic to put.  so if you see something you like on their site, great.  or you could send in what you want and they’re put it together.  anyways that is the cheapest i’ve found so far.  sometimes you can catch a great deal at target or walmart in their clearance aisle.

i recommend going to paper source to get some ideas or supplies, but to purchase they can get a little pricey.  A friend of mine used http://www.myjeanm.com  and this link has a 15% off coupon but, it expires soon!  http://www.couponcraze.com/coupons/jeanm/.  Not positive if its in your price range but, if anything else, it can inspire you!!

Good Luck!

Go to Michael’s! They have a ton of cute boxed invite sets. The ones I bought were part of the "Brides" magazine line and were only $40 for a box of 40 invites. I had a 40% off coupon (you can find the coupon online if you don’t get the newspaper – Michael’s *always* has coupons going around) so they came out to around $25/box after that. They are super cute and don’t look cheap at all (nice paper, etc.). They come with a little pamphlet with wording suggestions and information on downloading invite templates off the manufacter website. Definitely a bargain invite find.

Target!!!!  They have really pretty designs and sell boxes of 50 invites for about $25-30.  I just bought 4 boxes and printed them off my home computer.  However, I didn’t know they did not come with inner envelopes…which really saved quite a bit of time and work!  If you’re ok with that, I definitely recommend.  Best of luck to you!

Target is a great place to look. They actually have quite a bit of their wedding stuff on sale right now.

There are lots of great sellers on etsy who can help depending on the style and price you would like. Plus, most of the designers are small and accommodating. I would highly recommend checking out etsy.com for deals.

Here are some of my favorites:

I used a combination for both our STD and invites. 

VistaPrint.com can be good for some things (search for a coupon online, 50% off is common) 

We wanted to be socially conscious in some purchases when possible and found a great non-profit called WomanCraft (womencraft.net). They made us handmade plantable paper booklets (4 pages) for $2.10/invite. I bought envelopes through envelopemall.com for $12.  

 We stamped the front of our invites and the back side of the envelopes using a custom stamp we ordered from Esty.

I;m going to be very simple and resourceful and print it on parchment paper, my brother did it the same way when he was working with a small tight budget

i went with a local university’s print shop. sounds weird, but they do invites all the time. we just had a friend who is inDesign savvy design something that we came up with (by browsing through etsy and picking different parts of invites we saw there to make our own!) and then gave the design the the print shop. we’re getting 132 color invites, reception cards and response cards all for less than $40. i’m just going to get ribbon and tie all the pieces together myself! if you live near a university…i would suggest looking into their printing options/prices! good luck!
