@KHR20507:   Joann’s and Michael’s actually have apps that you can download on your phone and there are coupons on them. Or just google Michaels or joanns coupons. I had found a 40% off coupon on their website. I also had to go to two different Joann’s to get all my invitations. The one let me use a coupon on each item and just rang them up seperately but the other one would only let me use one coupon so I had to make my sisters come up and purchase the other boxes.

We used them and they looked great and were so much cheaper!

@miss narwhal:  beautiful.  do they even come with the ribbon??  when you print them, i wouldn’t use black ink.  it would be too harsh.  maybe brown ink?

I got mine at michaels, I printed them myself and it was really easy. I have gotten a ton of comploments on them, which I was surprised about.

I bought mine from Michaels also. I went once a week with my 40% coupon and bought one box at a time until I had enough. It took awhile, but the money I saved was worth it.

Everyone compliments the invitations and is really surprised that I did them myself. My only complaint was it didn’t come with extra pages for like directions, hotel block, and registry info. This could have just been the specific one I bought. I just bought nice paper and printed it on there and cut to size, but it would have saved a lot of time and look a little nicer if all the paper matched.

@shannonh32:  

I think I bought the same ones that you have, but I the look of yours since you added the ribbon!! I thought they were going to be quite plain, but yours look beautiful.

I bought Michaels invitations too… like 3 different sets, 2 boxes each, as I figured I could use the other sets for my hometown recepetion.  I got most of them on clearance, which made it quite a deal!  In total, I think I have 200 invitations for around $60-80.        I’m just starting to look into how to print these up, and seeing everyone say it was really easy is SUCH a relief!  I was worried that my attempt to save money was seriously going to backfire on me.

@PeachSnapple:  Doing your own invites is well worth it – way to go.  Just some advice, buy extra of the invites.  I bought mine on clearance also & when I needed some extra a few months later, the item was nowhere to be found.  I went to 5 different Michaels & even checked online with the company who produces them.  So I had a few that didn’t match.  So don’t get stuck in that situation.  Good luck.

I got a box of 30 at Michaels for 99 cents on clearance. Not 100% sure I’m going to use them. But probably will. Can’t beat the price.

@lillam:  Yeah I know, I don’t think I bought enough of my fave invitations when I first purchased, as back then the wedding was supposed to be way smaller.   I found the same kit on ebay for an extra $25, so I might get it while I can.  Or I can decide who gets the “non-matching” invites and save a little bit more money.   Not sure yet.

I just finished printing my Michael’s bought invites. Just a tip for printing the RSVP cards:

If you find your printer is printing the second RSVP card crooked, tape the RSVP card to a full size piece of regular printer paper. Then run that through the printer. I had this happen to me, and I wasted 2 RSVP cards before I figured out this solution. If you use Scotch Magic tape, it comes off easy, and there is no evidence leftover. Also, just make sure you put the tape out of the way of the actual printing area.

ETA: I have a really old printer (like 10 year old inkjet, so it might just be my printer. But I figured I’d share the tip anyway, just in case someone else runs into this problem.)
