mine cost about 175 for 40 invites (115 guests)

but I already had the ink and printer and michaels had a buy one get one on the paper.

And 50 of that included the rsvp postcards I ordered online

I priced out all the paper and supplies for 100 pocketfolds and came up with about the same number.

I did Zazzle.com, and it cost me 299.44 for a 5×7 invite and two postcard inserts, for 150 invitations.

I think I spent $150 on 50 invitations, including paper, liners. tape, envelopes, pocket folds, and possibly postage, I can’t remember.  $60 to $70 for the pocketfolds and envelopes, $30 for the liners, $20 for the paper, and I lucked out on printing because my boss let me use our nice color laser printer. I already had a paper cutter and rounded corner punch.

You know what killed me?  Shipping.  I think I spent $20 just on shipping from the two websites I used.  I also could have done DIY liners to save maybe $20.
