Anyone used Costco to print their invites? I’m at a toss up between there and Staples so far. The deets:
We only need around 50 printed.
We don’t want to spend a lot of money on printing or postage. Nothing crazy.
Using our own design is an option (we already have a mock up waiting just in case).
We don’t really want to fight with a printer at home or spend a lot of time cutting paper, creating envelope inserts, etc.
Linen/textured paper is a plus.
Price point is ~$2-2.50 per card (including postage).

I used Vistaprint for my save the dates and CatPrint for my invites. They ended up being very affordable. Vistaprint has a lot of promo codes avaialbe so that really keeps costs down. Both of those have multiple paper options and you can request samples first to see what the paper looks like in person.

We used Staples to print our invites and they turned out fine. We had them print the invite wording on cream paper and then I scrapbooked them from there and people loved them. They were simple, and cost effective. We printed around 175 or so, with RSVP cards for under $200, other supplies was around another $50.

I did not, but I’ve generally been impressed with Costco’s general quality of everything they sell. I’ve gotten photos printed there and they are great/affordable. And their house brand is consistently rated fantastic for everything from laundry detergent to dog food. They put pride in what they produce, which I find admirable.
Are you able to order just one draft printed and see if you like it enough to print the other 49?

Staples doesn’t have the best quality, I’ve printed invitations and such with them before, and won’t again. They’re great for other things, but not for invites.
