@Happiestbridetobe:  I would design your own and then order off of catprint.com. It is by far the cheapest that I have seen

I complete DIY on our invites. I liked that I was able to design, print & see it printed before I went and printed all of them. It was surprisingly easy and a fun project! We also got a great deal on our paper, which helped a lot in cost.

The ABandIG store on etsy ones I got were only $2 a piece and incredibly beautiful.  The store owner is super accommodating.  For 20 cents more per piece, we got ribbons to wrap them in.  I think she’s on hiatus right now, but definitely look it up!  Pearlescent paper, great pritning, well packaged, highly customizable, lots of awesome designs.

My co-worker typed up/designed my invite and RSVP cards. I took them to Office Max to get them printed. I did half in their paper…white gold (w/ a shimmer) for $.62/2 on each paper, half with paper I bought (white metallic linen). The paper I bought was $.30 each, plus $.49 to print at Office Max.

I’m getting my cardstock and paper on papersandmore and making them myself 🙂 I am pretty sure it’s cheaper, and I like that it’s completely original and I have fun making them (VERY small wedding though). And I am saving the remaining cardstock and paper for programs, wecome letters, and menus down the road.

@Happiestbridetobe: 

fyi – I got a sample of metallic paper from papersandmore along with a ton of other samples to choose from – they are only 50 cents, you can order as many as you want, and shipping is 1 dollar no matter what. Even if I bought by the page, each invite comes out to 2 dollars each (I just did the math). Much cheaper if I buy the 100 page packs of course.

The quailty was REALLY good on that paper, and the vellum (they have a sample pack).  and the embossed wood grain 🙂

@Happiestbridetobe:  I haven’t seen the envelopes… I only saw the paper but it was really nice. I didn’t have it cut, but it has good reviews for cutting. I was planning on printing it at home, I am using wood grain for the pocketfold and recycled sand specks for the cards inside – the invite in column vellum. The sand specks is cardstock and I can print on it no problem, but some reviews suggest changing your settings to cardstock or think paper. I’d get a sample and check.

@Happiestbridetobe:  I got the paper from Kelly Paper http://kellypaper.com/shop-online We have the actual store here in Vegas, so I was able to take some samples before purchasing. The envelofolds were ordered from http://www.cherishpaperie.com/ The envelofolds were a little pricey @$1.80 each, but I was only doing 60 invites, so I kinda splurged. I did a few variations of the invites…can’t really see the diff in materials in the pix.

We did clear labels and clear envelopes (so the invite/wax seal could show through). Forgot to take pictures of the invite in the envelope.

This 1st one is with Office Max’s paper

The following is with Kelly Paper’s

The following is with the Kelly Paper again
