Here are my DIY invites. Got my pocketfolds and envelopes from paperandmore.com. They are the onyx black, metallic cardstock. Designed my invites, RSVP cards and directions card with powerpoint and had them printed through vistaprint. We had to have them cut at staples to fit the pocketfold. So glad they are finally done. I’ll try to post a pic of my envelopes, I lined them with scrapbooking paper and they looked nice. Planning to close the pocketfold using yellow and white baker’s twine with a business card containing our wedding webiste info hanging from it.

They look great! Love the yellow/gold. If you dont mind me asking, how much did the entire process cost (from buying the paper to getting them print and cut)? Just trying to figure out whether I should do DIY invites or just pay to have them done. Thanks!!

The main envelopes, RSVP envelopes and pocketfolds (100 invites) were $144 from paperandmore.com. For the actual invites I used groupons for vistaprint, I used the linen finish for the main invite and the 100lb premium cardstock for the inserts (used rack cards that were cut in half so I only needed 50), total cost is about $35 for that. I paid $3 for the chandelier clipart (have 5 of them) from an Etsy seller. Cutting cost about $14 at staples. So all in all that’s roughly a little less than $2 per invite. The baker’s twine I got for $5 at Jo Ann’s, and the wedding website card are premium business cards from VP too. I think if you want a personalized look for not a lot of money DIY is the way to go. Goodluck!
