I havent used them, but I am pretty sure you can use either inkjet or laser.  I would look around for some complimenting paper and make your own reception cards.  Places like here  http://www.paperandmore.com/ sell all sorts of different kinds of paper, I am sure you could find something that works, the print a few per sheet and cut them down with a paper cutter.   If you have anymore questions let us know!

I used my regular ole ink jet printer & the quality came out great! I bought linen paper to add a little umh. Here are my DIY invites.

Thanks! They were hard work, but DIYing your own invitations are fun! You will really enjoy it 🙂

Annie,

Where did you get your paper and folders? Did you print that image on?

@des_salazar: I actually made my own folders/ pocketfolds using 8.5 x 14 80lb Matte Cardstock from paperpresentation.com. I took them to Kinkos to cut & then scored them to have clean folds. It was sooo much cheaper then buying pre-made pocketfolds & it wasn’t very hard to do.

I loosely followed Mrs. Ballet Flat’s tuitorial: http://www.weddingbee.com/2008/09/27/how-to-make-your-own-pocketfold-invitations/ Except mine were 6 x 6 square invitations.

The linen paper was also from paper presentation.  

Yes, I found that image of the olive branch online & then used photoshop to cut out the background, and the little olive branch that is on the inserts, is just the first olive & leaf/branch on the original image, just cut out. Then I printed all the images onto the paper using my photosmart printer.
