I got mine at michaels too! I already had ink in my printer and I got the invites that look similar to cupcakemeg on clearance. The box comes with invites, envelopes, RSVP cards and envelopes and thank you cards. All of that came to only $0.66 each!!! I had matching card stock so I made my own RSVP post cards since postcard stamps are only $0.27 or something like that. The only thing though is my invites had a bow on them and that cost more money to ship 🙁 they cost $0.67 each to ship as opposed to $0.44…….
$160 for 100 invites including postage!
One of my friends went through costco.com and she said those prices were really good as well!

Target DIY. And I got the kit on clearance so about $50 for 100 invitations with response cards with normal postage. Perfectly good enough quality to me and amount to spend on something people will look at for a few minutes and then probably end up tossing. =)

I would also highly recommend the Michael’s kits. We got them on sale AND used a coupon and paid $.60 per invite, before postage. They were easy to design with downloadable templates, easy to print, and I love them. We’ve gotten SO many compliments on them, and people think we got them professionally designed and printed. 🙂

I had a friend design ours and then found a local printer to print them… We got 225 – 5 piece invitations (invite, 2-sided RSVP postcard, accommodations card, reception invite and map) for $300. We got envelopes from Papermart.com for around 50 and I made wrap around address labels by printing them on full sheet labels and cutting them with a paper cutter. So $1.73/invite, not including postage. For a five piece suite, I was pretty pleased!

I also got mine from Michaels and it was doubly awesome because they were 40% off when I got them, and they have coupons basically ALL THE TIME!

I’m another Target/designed it myself girl. I’m happy with how they came out. I know there are a ton of great, expensive options, but to me the invites weren’t worth blowing the budget on.

My daughter and (Son-In-Law) made theirs from items they got at a craft store-I bought high quality paper and a colored cardstock and 2 sizes of envelopes. They printed the invitations on my computer, and cut them with my papercutter. They glued them with rubber cement so they had a color border, used a paperpunch and tied raffia through the punch holes. They were somewhat simple but came out very nice. I think they cost less than $.05 for each -including a copper pen they used to speckle the paper with. They paid a bit more for a couple of rubber stamps and ink which they used on the envelopes. But I think all the supplies that I bought including the special pen was $20.00

I got mine from magnetstreet.com. I got my save the date magnets from them and was really happy. Also you can customize everything on there, from the color of all the words to the color of the designs. We paid about $400 for 100 invites. I had also gotten the vellum paper, envelope liners, and envelopes with our return address on them, so that upped the price quite a bit. Look online for a coupn too…they always have them 🙂

I ordered mine on Saturday and received them on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!! Unbelievable!
I got 50 invitations – linen
50 response cards – linen
Both sets of envelopes – PLUS I got the RSVP envelopes printed with our address so I did not need to get writer’s cramp
Plus monogram stickers for the envelopes with my new last name to be – A
So that totaled up to 103 bucks, but I googled a promo discount code and saved 25%! Grand total 78 buckaroos!!!!!!!

Totally DIY! We went to Target and got a kit that included white embossed invitations, embossed sleeves, RSVP cards, inner and outer envelopes. It came with directions to print everything. I then bought a roll of ribbon, and put my own cute bows on them and they are gorgeous. $29.99 for the kit, $2 for the ribbon. Here is a pic of my last rough draft, the only thing we changed is the wording to show all numbers spelled out, except for the address of the venue. I agree with jo.lee, its definately not something worth blowing the budget for. Now we have 200 bucks to spend elsewhere 🙂
