Have you looked at vistaprint?  And they always have deals pop up on groupon or send emails out like crazy with good deals

@lindseyl06: Fh and I did ours from scratch. He designed the invites, then we went to Michaels and found 4 x 6 cardstock and 5 x 7 cardstock. Printed the invitation on the 4 x 6, then used the 5 x 7 as a background.

 

For about 125 invites it cost about $125-$150 including 2 packs of ink (the ink itself was probably about $60-$80)

can you design them and then take them to staples/kinkos.. i know most places the cost to print is usually 10cents a page ( B & W)

I designed and printed my own.. total cost was under $100 for everything including cardstock for making the pocketfolds, inner cards, return envelopes and outer envelopes ( which was the ONLY thing we did not make)

I used Vistaprint for my programs, menus, welcome letters, rehearsal dinner invitations, and thank you cards.  I thought it was a great value, especially when you use one of the $70 for $17 Groupons floating around on the Internet.  You could easily dress up invitations from there with ribbon or stamps or whatever.

I used this design for my menus and programs, which looks like your colors (or close to): http://c.gp.vphosted.com/gallerypreview.caspx?combo_id=70316&pt=61&render_tech=hybridgdipwpf.  I would not recommend using this particular design for brochures, however, as we had some problems with the brown ink rubbing off on the folds.

We did Vistaprint with Groupons. We spent less than $75 on our 100 invites. We had a ceremony card, reception card, rsvp card, rsvp envelope, inner envelope with a design on the front and back, outside envelope. I also made a belly band out of lace and a wax seal.

If you want to do them yourself – definitely try Staples. They do more than you probably realize.

Also try magnetstreet.com

My Future Brother-In-Law used them for his invites and everything on there is customizable and very inexpensive. You can also check out weddingpaperdivas.com

Good luck!

I went to Michael’s and got ours on clearance.  We got 60 invites for $20 that you do have to print out at a computer, but you may be able to do that at your local library, or family members or friend’s house.

you can design in store or online and then they print and you pick up… super easy! Office max is another one as well..or a postal store like postal connections/etc.

We designed ours and had them printed at Catprint.com and I can’t speak highly enough about their site. We had 150 4-part invitations for a little under $200 and they were AMAZING quality – we got so many compliments on them.

http://www.weddingchicks.com has some free printable invitations and you can customize some of the colors. If you find one you like there, you can save it and print at Kinkos/staples/Office Depot/Office Max/UPS store.

@kaw2be:  Agreed.

@OP Vista print seems to be one of the cheapest options.
