The approximate cost ranges from 3.50 USD to 7 USD. Custom invitations are somewhat pricier because of the designer fee, ranging 7.50 to 13 USD (unless you want the really superpricey ones).

Also flat printing is the cheapest, whereas letterpress is the most expensive. Embellishments (rhinestones, ribbons, lace, etc) make your invitations more expensive. Finally, there also is a difference in price depending on how they are folded, read more here:

I just picked ours up at Michael’s this weekend and I spent $136 on 160 invites and response cards and that includes the envelopes!  I think I got a great deal and I love my invites!  Just need to get them printed and we are adding our own ribbon to them, but that wont cost too much!

@krissyb Good luck finding your invites, and IMO your budget isn’t too low!

I bought mine from Michaels. We started putting them together today. With two 40% coupons we got 60 invites for about 50$. They are coming out really nice – i think i am surprised! Check them out, that is if you are willing to spend a couple days working on them, but then it is worth it, i would rather spend my 300$ on something else!

I think if you DIY your invites, they will be less money.  However, you have to put legwork into it, like printing it.  I am using invites from New Leaf Paper sold at Office Depot.

I found a wonderful lady who is trying to tap into the bridal invitation making business and she is offering to design our invites for FREE!!  The only thing we will be paying for is the paper……for a total of 150 invites with all inserts it’s costing us around $170 for all the paper and pocketfolds which we are purchasing from paperandmore.com.  If any of you would like to have me send her contact info I would be happy to do so.  She is so easy to work with and is great at responding quickly to emails.  She will work closely with you and put your dream invitation into a design!!

Be very aware of what you “need” if you go the DIY route.  Not trying to discourage you, just sharing that you need to decide up front if it’s more important to stay within your budget (as in little to no wiggle room) or stay true to your wedding vision.  Should you have to choose between the two, you need to know which you’re willing to sacrifice.  Fiance & I chose to DIY, initially because we wanted to save money, but eventually because we had a unique vision & no one made what we wanted (8.5″ x 3.5″ invite that pulled out to 11″ x 17″ that resembled the Disneyland map).  When push came to shove, we stuck to our vision rather than our “budget” & pulled money from another source.

That said, our invites (11″ x 17″, full color, double-sided, & folded + gold shimmer envelopes + first class U.S. stamps) totalled  $267 for 35 (61 guests, including kids).  RSVPs are online.

I’m going the diy route and got 100 invites for about 30 bucks, in a going out of business sale.  but a friend of mine is using 123 printing, I saw her samples and some seemed to be really nice “linen” type paper.

we probably spent close to $800 (including stamps). Way more than I had intended but I fell in love with the invites and nothing else would do!!

I didn’t end up going with them, but a store in my city quoted me several prices within your budget for the same number of invitations from http://www.rexcraft.com/.  I know a lot of stationary stores carry that brand and they really do look nice.
