@Take The Reins: Love those designs!  Do you end up saving a lot of money buying the paper and printing yourself as opposed to ordering via vistaprint, etc?  I’m thinking of printing invites myself, but I feel between buying quality paper and the ink, it might not be saving enough money to be worth the effort.

@johanna42: We are not at that point yet, but when we do, we are going to price out the printing from Cards and Pockets, the designer herself, and the self print where we buy all the paper and print on our own computer.  She told me that cards and pockets is actually quite pricy to print, so I may also look into Kinkos or staples.  Paper alone for ours is close to $300, plus the design around $100 with all our pieces, I will also get her to do the template for my programs once we are ready and the menu.  SHe only charges around $10 for each new design, so for that much, it will save me hours of work on my own, and I’m happy to pay it!

Yes – I highly recommend Pomp Designs – she designed mine (I think I paid around $50) and I couldn’t have been any happier.  She’s super fast, sweet, and inexpensive.  http://www.etsy.com/shop/pompdesigns

And assuming you are in DC she’s also local.

I like pink lily press.  I’ve ordered business cards from her and she was great to work with.
