I bought the paper from a company to print and assemble the invites myself.  This company wanted over $10 per invite.  With buying the paper and printing myself (I use a printers often for business so they gave me a huge discount when it came to my invites) it will cost me $400 for 100 invites.

I paid about $350 for 200 invitations and 200 rsvp cards at magnetstreet.com

 

They are simple, yet very pretty.  I was also able to find a 10% off coupon on retailmenot.

When I went to invitation houses, they were $15-10 each (I wanted pocket folds with crystals).

I found the same thing on etsy for $6.75.

It’s not particularly a lot…are you on a budget? If it’s within your budget then I say go for it…if not, then is there another option? I would have him look up prices for invitations like the one you have and see if he can find a less expensive one…if not, then I say you’ve won that one Wink

I did my own invitations purchasing supplies through Paper Source, and it came to $165 for about 85 invitations, or just under $2.00 each (plus I am using some of my DIY supplies from the invite making to do my thank you notes and my programs)

We’re ordering from theamericanwedding.com with a 20% off coupon.  For just the invitations and evelopes, it’s about $200 for 125 invitations.

thats not too much at all, IMO, but like everything else, its all relative to your budget!  we’re speinding $12 on ours  with calligraphy, so $4.50 doesnt seem bad to me.  again, its all relative

I think $4.50 sounds really reasonable, but it definitely depends on the style of invite you’re going for. There are lots of nice, simple styles you can buy for probably less than that. But mine will probably end up being ~$5/invite even thought I’m DIYing everything because I wanted a really unique design and have pocketfolds with a bunch of inserts. I checked out the place where I got my inspiration picture from and their invites are $10-20 a piece! So in my case, $5 is a deal.

$4.50 is really reasonable for invites, I think – especially if you love them! I’m doing them myself, but i’ve got the help of a graphic designer brother, which makes it much easier. If I didn’t I’d be saving my sanity and buying them with about your budget! 🙂

$2.50 each from an Etsy vendor… included the invitation, outer envelope, RSVP card, and RSVP envelope.
