Mine cost about $1.25 w/ postage when all was said and done. I used cardsandpockets.com and they were fantastic!

We got our invitations from them and I loved them.  We got a lot of compliments on our invites.  They were really great to work with.  I would suggest getting samples from them (most are only $1).  I found through getting the samples that I liked the textured paper rather than the flat, so that really narrowed down my options.  Also, I ordered colored envelopes to add a little something special to the invites since weddingpaperdivas only supplies you with white envelopes.

It depends on what you want and where you get them. $1.25 an invite including postage is crazy, CRAZY inexpensive – that is going to skew the thread a bit. The ones I likes (that has multiple enclosures and extra luxe paper, etc) would have been about $9.00 each without postage, so I made them myself for about $3.00 each (plus postage). I’ve heard good things about wedding paper divas. Good luck!

i’ve heard really good things about weddingpaperdivas in terms of the quality and service, and that the price is very fair considering what you get.  i’m sure you could spend less printing an invitation of your own design at home, but if you are not a big DIY person, i think weddingpaperdivas is totally worth it.  i definitely would have purchased our invites from them had it not been for my obsession with making my own invites.

All the wedding invitations I liked in a physical stationary store were $10-12 not including postage, I found an etsy seller I love who will do them for $8.25 each. If you can get an invite with muliple color ink/ card inserts for less than $6 you’ve found a deal.

I did get mine from Weddingpaperdiva’s and I love them. They double check everything just to make sure its right. I liked them so much i ended up ordering my shower invites from them too.

 

At WPD the more you buy the less they cost. I got 100 for $1.69 each. (just for the invite. Response cards are extra, I did postcards for my RSVP’s from 123print.com) I thought this was a great price. For the Wedding invites, the shower invites were from the “Studiobasics” line which is a little cheeper because you cant change the colors and they were $.87 a peice.

My SIL used WPD when she got married last year and hers turned out great too.

I don’t know the website, but I think invite prices vastly vary. I’m DIY’ing everything and I’m going to spend about $150 on supplies (not including postage. From that I’ll get the 65 invites that I need plus LOTS of left over paper (should be enough for whatever other paper needs I have).

We used Weddingpaperdivas for our Save-The-Date Cards and they were fantastic!  Super low price, great service and they looked awesome! Got lots of compliments on them.  I’m planning on ordering our invites from them too and they’re reasonably priced as well.  Prices definately vary on that site, but if you’re having any reservations about ordering from them – don’t even sweat it.  I would recommend the site in a heartbeat.  My sister is even ordering the shower invites from them….

I am ordering my invitations from wedding paper divas and so far I have been thrilled with my experience.  (Picture for our vineyard wedding invite below – but we changed the text to grey and changed the font of our names to be more formal.)  Some tips:

  • WPD has three types of invitations – letterpress (press paper with ink – most expensive), thermography (raised, shiny, lacquer-like print – middle expense), and their “signature” line (plain printing on heavy cardstock – least expensive, most about $1.50-$17.5/invite, depending on how many you buy)
  • Every invite is either printed on white or ecru paper, flat or textured paper – when you find an invite you like, it will say which combo it is (for example, my invitations are ecru textured).  You CANNOT switch (i.e. if an invitation comes on white flat paper, you cannot change the paper to ecru textured), which is sort of annoying and limits your choice if you have your heart set on a specific type of paper.
  • You can CUSTOMIZE everything to your heart’s content – colors, fonts, size of text, what the invitation says, etc.  Right now WPD is offering free color customization on all of their invitations (this is normally $15-$20 per order), which is nice.  You also get a ton of options on envelopes, return address printing, etc.
  • You should definitely sign up for their newsletter – WPD is constantly having sales, and you will get coupons a couple of times a month, so you can save lots of money (I got $20 off + free shipping + free customization).
  • You can order samples for $1 each of any invitation you like (comes with free shipping and free color card showing you all the custom colors available for the type of paper used).  Once you order samples, you can see size, texture, color, weight, etc. – this was really nice for us, as FH has to SEE everything before he can make a decision.

Once you order, you get free email proofs and they have designers who look over everything before you order, so no typos or other weirdness!  Plus, they guarantee all their orders, so you can return anything if you are not happy with it.

Ohh…yeah I probably should have mentioned I did DIY invites. I bought the Pocketfold part on Cardsandpockets.com, but cut and printed all the inserts myself. I paid around $125 for all the paper, pocketfolds, ink, ribbon, envelopes, and stamps. I made about 100 invites out of all that.

Though I only ended up sending out 70. Bad planning on my part. 🙂

My bachelorette invites came from them and I love them!!  My bm’s also had really great experiences working with them…I think you’re pretty safe if you choose to get your invites from them Laughing

EDIT – – @seravictoria – – I got my envelope liners from Cards & Pockets. I got the tile pattern in tuscan sun on champagne paper. mmmmm, Cards & Pockets was so great to work with too Wink

I used weddingpaperdivas and everything came out great.  I got TONS of compliments.  Plus, their samples are only $1- so if you aren’t sure go ahead and order a sample!

I got mine from Wedding Paper Divas, and used a coupon (if you’re on the mailing list, you’ll get them a lot!), so for the invite, response card + envelope, and a directions card, they ended up being just about $300 for 80 sets.  I love them, the quality is great, and I’ve received a TON of compliments on them! 

What also helps, is if you can add DIY accents…I did my own envelope liners, and tied the invites together with bakers twine, which helped to dress the invite up a bit.  This didn’t add-on much cost either!

@jackie-o: I LOVE Cards and Pockets! I got my shipment after four days from ordering and I ordered when they had a coupon code for 20% off the entire order. Plus I got ones that were already on clearance for .70 a piece, so I really save a ton going through them.

I briefly contemplated making them myself, but I am glad I found the deal through them! They saved me 16 hours of frustration (of course I am guesstimating here).
