Have you tried Vistaprint yet?  You can google for a 50% off promo code then design your own using your images or their templates, then choose lots of options before ordering.  I ended up doing that instead of 100% DIY and I paid $80 for 50 Save-The-Date Cards, Invitations, RSVP cards, and mailing labels.  It was a really good deal.  You’re still doing the designing, but they do all the actual printing.

@redheadem: Yup; I used the one where there’s a tree and a heart with initials carved in it.  It’s just like doing the STDs—you use Advanced Editing to move around the text and change fonts, colors, etc.  Once you have the invitation done, they’ll import that information into matching RSVP cards, address labels, etc.

I used Cat Print for both our Save-The-Date Cards and invites and I cannot rave enough. Such great quality and the customer service cannot be beat.

Vistaprint is great if you have a standard size invite and for STD’s and programs, etc. I used them and they were wonderful.

I made pocketfold invitations though and I needed all kinds of special sized paper, so I used Catprint. We got 125 4-part invitations printed in color for about $200. Shipping was fast, you get a free hard copy proof if you want before they go into full printing so you can make any changes and actually see it first. And they turned out beautiful, I got SOOO many compliments on them.

Darling Husband and I went to Kinko’s. They weren’t super helpful the first time around and kind of messed up our invites. The second time around, we worked with much more competent employees, and our invites turned out great!

We did ours at FedEx/Kinkos. We were very happy with how they turned out! And it was really cheap.
