I think the cheap ones are fine for an engagement party.

Absolutely fine.  Invitations should match the formality of the event, so casual event = casual invitation.

Best advice you will get all day NOT Evite BUT INSTEAD Paperless post.  paperlesspost.com  It is th victorian invitation of 2012.  Gorgeous choices, but you can tell people you were “going green” in your choice not to print.  I promise.  SO cool.  I live in NYC, and its classy even here.

I don’t think so, unless (like PPs said), the event is formal.

We had an outdoor crawfish boil (super casual), and these were our postcards:

We did evites for our engagement party (didn’t know anything about paperless post), and for our post-wedding brunch as well.  No need to send a formal invite for casual events.  We also sent out beautiful invitations for the actual wedding, that we got for a grand total of $40 at Michael’s.
