    My DIY costed out for 50 were about $50. So about $100 or so. That’s not counting ink and if I buy stamps or anything. Also they weren’t pocketfolds which I priced out to about $75 for 50 of them. I guess it just depends on what you’re looking for.

    I’m so far off your chart I don’t even think I should answer this one!  🙂  Mine were a splurge, but I love them (even though yes, I know people just throw them away.)

    We’re getting ours done by a friend so she is charging us less than normal, but depending on which we pick they will be $1-2 each, plus envelopes and reply cards (which she hasn’t priced out yet).  It seems to me like most places charge between $3-5 (Canadian).  But obviously you can get something outside those prices!  I have several friends who made their own, are you just worried about being crafty, or prices?  They found it to be cheaper.

    I DIYed ours and I paid 73.40 for 200sheets of particular card to produce 170 invites. and 30 dollars for paper to make the belly band, borrowed a cuttlebug off a friend. And the ribbon I had leftover from making ribbon pomanders. Since living in australia there isnt a real variety for competitive shipping, so it made sense for us to make our own and also our city is 4hrs from the nearest capital leaving not much range for ours to be made and I really like the end result for our DIY.

    Ours were about $2000 for 75 tri-pocket letterpress invitations. I designed them myself and used professional paper and printing companies for the production.

    I think all the professional made invitations I priced out were anywhere from $3 to $10 each.

    I tried to DIY but I am just… not good so I scrapped that plan and returned all my materials (return shipping for some things cost a pretty penny!).  We ordered thermography invites, RSVP cards, (outer and response envelopes included) from My Gatsby.  They’re super customizable and we’ve received so many compliments on them already!

    With a coupon code, the total cost for 175 sets was about #250, shipped.  I really recommend them!
