We did postcard STD from Vistaprint.  It helped save on postage too. 

For our invites, I designed something on the computer and printed it out at a local copy shop.  I got 2 per page and did color copies.  I mounted them on colored card stock and thought they came out really good.  We just used normal envelopes from an office supply store.

Have you seen the invitation kits from Michael’s? I think they are about $40 for 40 invitations and include envelope, RSVP card etc. Some of them are really cute. Collect your 40% off coupons from the paper or their app and buy them one box at a time. Then run them through your home printer.

We also used vista print for our STD magnets. Came out great and pretty inexpensive. They were less than $1 each, but postage and envelopes pushed it over. You could do postcards like PP suggested and probably stay under that mark.

@lawbride88:  here’s a link for coupons http://weeklyad.michaels.com/

I think another bee said she had luck getting a invite kit from target.  If you do decide to design/DIY your own feel free to PM me for help.

we did a vista print package, they usually have a groupon or living social out there to where you can get a really good dea. There are some helpful threads on how to get it to exactly what you want on another site, the wedding channel, Hailey I think is her name has all of the tips and tricks to getting the best out of vistaprint. That’s what we did for our save the dates and invites 🙂   the kits at michaels are cute too. You might also look at Etsy, I’ve seen some beautiful work posted here from folks at etsy.

We did save the date magnets on Vistaprint. http://www.vistaprintdeals.com/ has discount codes as well. We bought some enveloppes online (amazon I think). We ended up at about $70 including postage for about 50 Save-The-Date Cards.

 

For invitations, we’re thinking of having someone on Etsy do a custom design for a “printable invitation” for us (but there are also plenty of really nice ones out there, I just want something very specific). We’re going to take the design and import it onto Vistaprint for printing. I’m estimating that the total with postage will be about $200 including postage and no discounts. You can definitely get it less expensive with discount codes and a non-custom design.
