I’ve recently been looking at invitations. I have looked at weddingpaperdivas and have seen a few things I liked. I also love how inexpensive they are! But Saturday my mom and I went to a local shop that make custom designed, hand made invitations! The two women who own the shop were so nice and down to earth. I loved them! I also LOVED their invites! The just sent me a quote and the cost per invite is 3.85 plus tax.
I guess what I’m looking for is the average cost of invites, from people who haven’t ordered from weddingpaperdivas.
ETA: The cost per invite also includes response cards. I just noticed on wedding paper divas that they would have to be ordered on top of the invite.

Envelopes: 10 for $5 so $.50 each
Designed ourselves, printed through catprint.com on cotton cardstock with rounded corners: about $1.90 an invite for two pieces (three printed sides)
about $1 extra per invite for ribbon and paper flowers to gussy them up
about $.50 each for custom return labels from peartreegreetings.com
however much stamps are … $.50?
So, grand total, somewhere around $4.50 per invite. Hmm… never really tallied up the costs before! Not too happy about that, lol.

$1.10 per invite plus postage (So, about a $1.70).

- Wedding: March 2012 - Pelican Grand Beach Resort
I spent like $670 on weddingpaperdivas for William Arthur thermography invitations. We ordered 75 with only the one envelope (wish I had not listened to my mom on that one and gotten the double), envelope lined with tissue, and matching response cards. Return addresses preprinted. No other inserts. This was definitely cheaper than similar products at local places and chains, but I didn’t look into anything handmade.

I went with a custom company although I did like some designs offered by Wedding Paper Divas.
Our grand total was $741.00 (including tax, shipping but not including any postage) so $7.41 per invite.
This included 100 invites, response cards with envelopes, accommodation cards, direction cards, VIP Tabs (custom logo and guest names), and 25 additional cards to include for those invited to the rehearsal dinner.

We went with Letterpress from Reaves and it was about $10 per invite with calligraphy for lined inside and outside embossed envelopes, envelope stamping, two color letter press and bleed
I thought it was an amazing deal for what we got

$0.35 from vistaprint.com. I got them on their 90% off sale and they came with matching envelopes. I did the inserts myself and already had the cardstock but that was less than $5 for all of them including the ink.

Mine ended up being about $4/invite including postage, envelopes, inserts and everything.

@tksjewelry: That’s what I’m talking about!!!!!! I’m aiming for $1 per invite but I like your style!! I need to think more outside the box with Vistaprint and see how I can incorporate them with my love for pocketfolds.

I got mine letterpressed and gold foil stamped. They ended up being $4/invitation. I love them. I think most invites are around $3-4/set and the fancier ones run like $6-10.

@WestieGirl: My invites were standard size and would have fit into a pocketfold. I actually thought alot about doing that and even bought a few samples, but in the end, I didn’t get the chance. If I had sent them out at a normal time I probably would have used pocket folds. I was able to use parts of designs from weddingchicks that I changed to match our invites to use for the enclosures. They do carry the enclosures and you can get them cheaper if you sign up for the business emails and look out for web deals like on coupon cabin (which is who I went through to get them so cheap) and I got tons of free stuff with them.

@tksjewelry: I got my STD’s from them using a Google offer that I got for $8 and only paid shipping. Did you upload your own design or pick one of their designs?

@WestieGirl: I picked on of theirs, I was alittle worried about the quality before I got them but was suprised at how nice they turned out on their linen paper. (it really doesn’t have a white border, that is just how it shows up over the dark yellow background on WB)
