I designed ours myself:

I had them printed through Vistaprint, and they have some cute designs.

@iadornyou:  Yep, they’ll be stacked and tied with the twine around the middle. 🙂 And thank you!

I customized the one below from Zazzle. I did not do RSVP cards and just wrote to reply at our website. It’s the size of a business envelope and mailed with just one forever 46 cents stamp. I ordered over 100 and it cost me $1.71 per invite using the upgraded recycled paper option. Sometimes Zazzle shows up on Groupon, look out for it for extra savings!

@vorpalette:  Where did you get the envelopes for your invites and RSVPs? I designed ours and I’m printing through VistaPrint also, but the sizes are larger than standard invites/rsvps and I’d debated trimming them, but yours look like they fit your envelopes well.

@iadornyou:  I mailed the invites out recently so I don’t know the response rate just yet! I did receive a few replies the next day. Praying for 100% reply via website.

@ThatOneGirl9613:  What size are they going to be? VP sends you envelopes, though I wasn’t a fan of the white ones. Mine are from envelopemall.com (they have tons).

I designed and printed mine at home (cut to size on a scrapbook cutter).  I purchased everything from paperandmore.com.  It cost me a little under $3 each including postage ($0.65), envelopes, cardstock, inserts, etc.

@jetsetlilypad:  I love your invitations! I saw some similar, but larger on a blog once and could NOT find anything similar or figure out where they made them.

 

I did find invites on clearance at Michaels and since the box of 40 (normally $40) was priced at $9.99 was perfect for my wedding of only 50 guests. Went to FedEx and they printed the invites and the reply cards (which were included in the box) for only $7! Great deal! **The image is the sample invite that is put at the front of the invite box, please ignore the extra white panels that are around the invite border . . that is not part of it lol***

I made ours.. I didn’t see the need to get expensive ones when I know they get thrown away.

I also designed mine and printed through vistaprint.com.  

On the left is our invitation, the center column are the front and back of the RSVP cards, and to the right is the invitation insert.  I also included the front of our thank you card (a folded card).

I did the linen print for the card material option and everything has turned out EXCELLENT.  If you decide on using vistaprint keep an eye out for Groupons ($17 for $70 credit).  We bought two of them and in total (including the cost of the Groupons) spent $85 on our entire stationary suite for 100ct. of each item.

@vorpalette:  I also used vistaprint and am looking for envelopes.  Which size did you end up using for inside and outside?

@vorpalette:  Yeah, I don’t want to do the white envelopes either. Ideally I’d like to do pocketfolds. I’m doing the 5×7 flat invites (it says the trim size is 7.17″ x 4.61″) and the standard 5.5×4 RSVPs (trim size 5.47″ x 4.21″) though.
