Anyone know of a invitations vendor that will design your invite and print and cut it for you? I can do the assembly myself. If needed, I can provide the paper myself as well.
I did already look at All Things Paper in Schaumburg and I will be meeting with another vendor tomorrow. But I wanted to see if any of you had any recommendations.
I want nice invitations, but not expensive.
Also, I’m getting married in May so I need to finalize a vendor soon so I can get my invitations ordered by the end of January. Any help you can provide is much appreciated.

I got my invitations done with Notfromabox.com – they can design, etc, and you could always ask for pricing on non-assembled invites. Their website was not as intricate as I expected, but just call or email. They are so helpful and will work around what your goals are: i.e. pricing, layout, if you have a symbol you would like to incorporate. They can also custom-design monograms, etc. I love my invites, and they can be as simple or complicated as you’d like. Good Luck!

Try Reaves Engraving — http://www.reavesengraving.com. They run toward the traditional style-wise, but for the quality and the price they are hard to beat. They sent me a pack of samples, even their house paper is excellent (they also offer Crane’s) . If I could do it over again I would have gone with thermographed invites from them and saved myself a bundle. Ah… hindsight.

I am using a graphic designer on Etsy. She’s only charging me $30 to do a custom design and then I’m taking the design file to a thermography printer to do the printing and cutting and then I’m doing all the assembly! It’s saving me a ton of money. This idea is great b/c you can take it to any printer you choose.. flat, thermography, I even considered letterpress! It saved a boat load and it was custom to what I wanted!

I had a family friend do ours and they worked out perfectly. He charged $100 for the custom design of our monogram and the invitations but charged us at cost for the thermography printing. We ordered 140 invitations, 140 RSVP cards, 300+ envelopes, and 250 thank you cards for less than $700. I did have to find my own invitation envelopes because he didn’t have access to colored ones, but the $700 includes that amount. If you message me, I’ll give you his info. He was really easy to work with. Just a word of warning – he’s new at this so it took more than a few iterations for it to be perfect, but now I couldn’t be happier and will be using the monogram on everything – it’s become our wedding "theme."
