I think that set would be costly to recreate, because it looks like they letterpressed five pieces in two colors.  To save on costs, I would consider having everything printed on a larger piece of paper and having it cut down and also getting it digitally printed.

I had mine letterpressed and gold foil stamped from Jeronimo’s Lithocraft.  They were very reasonably priced, but I did have to produce a print-ready image for them.  They provided the paper, but I also bought colored envelopes from paper presentation, lace doilies to wrap it in and baker’s twine to wrap around it.  In the end, it cost me about $3.25/invite, but I also bought 250 invitations.

How many do you need to send out and what is your budget?

I had seen a fellow bees invites that I absolutly loved!!!  She said she was ont etsy and send a PDF for $50, I was not willing to pay this for just a file and thought “I can recreate that my way myself!!!” It took me about 12 hours on the computer to get it just the way we wanted but Im so happy I did, they came out perfect!!! 

We uploaded the file on Vistaprint and ordered 70 invites, RSVPs and envalopes for about $150.  then we had little tie on labels we had printed at Staples, which matched perfectly  and we tied it all together with ribon on sale from AC Moore.  The total for 70 invites was about $200 they were personal and amaizng! Im so happy we put the extra effort into creating something and so happy we went with vistaprint, I would do it all over again 🙂  We have also gotten a ton of complements on them!
