As I’m sure you’ve seen, pocket invitations are very popular.  If you have the time available, making your own will allow you to completely customize size, orientation, pocket(s) as well as the paper you construct them out of. Could look different & interesting using one color for the invitation and affixing a pocket in a contrasting color!

I strongly suggest ordering paper samples, it is very difficult to select exactly what you want when all computer screens display colors differently.

Keep your eyes out, most e-tailers offer samples of their pre-made pocket invitations. Even If you dont fall in love with any that are pre-constructed, you can carefully deconstruct one to see how they are made and get a better sense for what you may want to change or personalize.

I got mine at cardsandpockets.com. They were great quality and really cheap. I printed the inserts myself and glued them all together. The look came out like a pricey invite for a lot less.

You can definetley make them cheaper than buying.  Like PP have said, get paper samples. 

And I recommend getting a guilotine paper cutter.  It will save you even more time and get things perfectly straight. 

Good luck!!

cardsandpockets.com has the dimensions of all of their pocketfolds & inserts. Even if you choose to make your own that could take some of the guess work out of it.

although keep in mind cardsandpockets uses a paper 11.5 inches long, not 11 inches, so you have to adjust your pattern to account for that.
