    @LRin2011:A poll (per invite) would be helpful. 😉 Plus, who doesn’t love a poll?

    Well, they were $15 for boxes of 25. I bought 3 boxes so… $45 for 75 invitations. Not including postage.

    Ours cost around $9/invite… and ordered 25 (small destination wedding)

    They included: custom design, tri fold invite w/ belly band with a monogram closures, 3 inserts, full page invite mounted on the opposite side of the invite, and envelopes with our return address printed. Our RSVPS were included as an insert and also had our address printed on them. 

    I had them done by Sarah Sproulli

    I was wondering the same question! I saw one online (she’s also on ETSY) that I just fell in love with. Laura Nehls is the designer –> http://www.lauranehls.com BUT she charges about $4.50-$6.50+ per invite! It includes pretty much everything though…

    Mine came out to $3 each, so I voted in the $1-$3 range, but I probably should’ve voted $3-$6 because I am adding my own directions/accommodations card and envelope liners.

    I’m having all the paper goods custom designed (invitations, menus, programs, maps, seating chart, table numbers, seating tents) and it’s around $20 per household.

    I think you’ll find a divide between the DIY/bought at Target/Michaels group and the ordered-from-a-printer group. I DIY’d my invites, and they cost about $2.25 before postage!

    I voted in the $1-$3 range.

    The invitations are going to cost me $2.75 each, but that does not include tax, stamps, directions, or any other crap I decide to put into each envelope.

    We have a wedding website, so the  younger, more tech savvy folks are not getting all the extra papers. The old folks, however, are.

    We spent $797.36 for 125 invites…so thats about $6.38 an invite…but this includes postage, outer and inner envelope, the wedding invitation, address icing, innner envelope lining, and the response set. The ones we got are thermography.

    We paid a $50 fee to an etsy seller (elanink) for a customized front & back invite.  We then had them printed from vistaprint.com on recycled cardstock, and we used the free white envelopes that came with them.  We also ordered address labels which we’re using for invites, thank you cards, etc.  The Vistaprint order came to $40, including shipping.  So $90 for 50 invites, not including postage.  Postage was one regular stamp, as there was only 1 piece of paper as we had people respond via our website and/or telephone.

    We went to a local paper/printing shop and they helped us design our invitation sets, which included the invitation card itself (double layered), directions card, response postcard, and envelope, all of which were printed with a motif and our information. They were not letterpress, but I guess just ink printed, but they looked really nice. We paid about $530 for 120 invitation sets. I voted, but I wasn’t sure if you meant to include the envelopes, response cards, etc in the per-invitation price, so I did.

    Oops, I voted $1-3 before I read that you wanted NON-DIY info.
