I got my invitations from Michaels and had staples print them out. It was easier for me that way and it didnt cost that much. I think in all (invitations and printing) I spent around 50 bucks.

@bump:  I did mine on my own printer, they were very easy. there is a website you go to depending on the brand they are that will give you templates for everything. Mine were wilton so I went to Wilton.com and they had all the templates I needed. I downloaded them to my computer, opened them in word and printed from there. Couldn’t have been easier, and so much cheaper than going to a printer!

I used them, I used my home printer rather than a service. I have gotten compliments from pretty much everyone, which was unexpected.

There are templates on the website you download and customize. I messed with the templates a little, but I have a good background in word so it wasn’t too difficult. I had a hard time getting my printer to line up properly, but nothing that would have put me off on printing them myself. Overall it was really simple. If you don’t know Word very well it might be more difficult though.

I ordered mine through Vista Print because they were actually cheaper, but my SIL used the print at home ones (I think from Target, but I’m not sure).  I printed them for her on my printer, and they came out great!  I didn’t have to download a template, but if I recall they gave you the measurements for your margins and what not, so it was easy.  Another Bee said they had them printed at Kinko’s, so I would call around and see what their prices are.

I got mine from Michael’s and you download the template from the website, and just print them all out.  They don’t give you any extras to test print though, so you’ll want to make sure you have enough if you make a mistake.  

I found it to be super easy and they came out great– everyone commented on how pretty they were.

@bump:   I purchased 125  (5 boxes of 25)and got them for $103 (including tax)…they were on sale for $19.99 a package regular $40/ea. I ended up printing 100. I am actually going to take one package back bc we didnt need them.  I already had ink in the printer and had plenty left when I was done so I have not had to buy any new ink.  I even printed ALL the addresses on the main invitation along with the return address on the back of that envelope, and the return address on the RSVP’s and still had ink. I will try ti take a picture tonight of my invitation suite so you can see. They came out sooo pretty.

Edit: After reading the post above, I think it depends on the brand on whether or not you get test prints. I got 3 test sheets for the invitation and the rsvp and reception card per box which was very useful!

@bump:  We got ours from Michaels too and even used a 50% off coupon which made it even better! They turned out good and the quality is nice. I added extra touches with rhinetones on them

I tried to upload a pic but the site isn’t allowing an upload…grrrrr
