Can you back them with cardstock?

Buy some thicker paper and glue them to the back? Choose a colour that goes with the invites a leave a little space on the edges so it looks nice?

Did you tell them you wanted postcard style RSVPs? If you did can they reprint them because they are not right?

ditto on the cardstock.  What size are the invites?  Can you back them with a slightly larger card so there is a .25 inch border? 

Also – use double sided tape – not glue – to affix it.  

Did you already buy your envelopes?  Make sure anything you back it with – fits in the envelope!!

re: RSVP cards – was there a contract stating the paper weight?  If not – I think you could negotiate reprinting on heavier paper.

I’d also suggest glueing them on to cardstock… but maybe use the spray glue stuff rather an regular glue so you don’t get any of the warping you get when your glue’s too heavy… try the craft store. I’m sure they would have both, paper and glue!

@mtnshine:I used a tape runner (from paper source) to affix my invites to a backing.  It works similar to those whiteout rolling things – you just put it down, start rolling and pickup when you are at the end.  Seriously easy – and super thin and left no marks – and stuck like a champ!

I did one strip on the top end and another strip on the bottom end (I didn’t do the sides) – that way, I could position the invite and make sure it was as even as possible on all four sides – and then I would press on the top middle and smooth towards the ends  -and then press on the bottom.
