@princessggg:  i think the easiest and cheapest option is the diy kits that you can buy at michaels.  they often have them on the clearance section or you can use their -40% coupon to save money.  

these kits usually have everything you need including inserts for rsvps, envelopes, seals, etc.  if you want to spruce them up a bit more, add a little ribbon or belly band in an accenting colour.

how many invites do you need?  what colours/theme are you having?

I don’t know if these suppliers might help? but they’re in an Australian Magazine (Modern Wedding DIY)

Truly Madly Deeply in NSW

Monograms Fine Papers in QLD

Eckersley’s Art and Craft

Also Cards and Pockets in the US might ship here?

If you are interested in a flat invitation, some sellers on Etsy have started selling print-it-yourself digital copies of invitations. You can then upload the design on Vistaprint or a similar website.

I just did my own save the dates and will do my own invitations. I did Save-The-Date Cards that were just under 4×6, so that I could print four to a page. I bought my own paper, this pretty pearlized cream color and had them printed at OfficeMax. It’s cheaper when you bring your paper and they are super helpful in making sure that everything is how you want it, before they print it.

My DIY travel-themed invitation set for our Destination Wedding wedding: packet envelopes, passport, boarding pass and venue brochure. Made all of these using MS Powerpoint — then printing and cutting and putting them all together AT HOME. I love MS Powerpoint, all my DIYs (and i have a lot!) were made using that. Hope it insprires you to be as creative as you can! 🙂

I made mine myself after buying organza ribbon on ebay and a uk paper store for the wallets / cards.

It all cost me £50 (is that about $150aud???) but that was for 50 day invites (100 people) and another 30 evening invites.

Then I just got sticking and printing and hey presto!!!

The actual invites/inserts are inside the wallet using the same font on white card and silver backing.

This is an invite I made for a friend of mine. Email me at [email protected] if you’re interested to see more.There are tons of budget-friendly ways to customize and DIY the invites. These are done with some nice paper, a stamp and sticky ink, a heat tool, and some embossing powder.
