I used vistaprint, they were very reasonably priced and came out just perfect.

While it is absolutely beautiful, letterpress is the most expensive type of printing (and not for reasons that are unjustified…but nonetheless, its expensive). So any invitation that is letter press will be way more. There are plenty of websites that have high quality invitations (weddingpaperdivas and minted come to mind) that have other options besides letterpress printing. You can order samples before comitting so you know what you’re getting before ordering. Smaller boutiques are awesome, but often your options are limited. So ordering online is great because you have all the options in the world available to you (and also, ordering online does not necessarily need to mean the customer service will be non-existant…in fact you may get better customer service than you would in the store you visited).

You can find free printable designs at sites like http://www.weddingchicks.com/freebies/invitation-suites/.  Reaves Engraving has reasonable pricing for thermography, letterpress and engraving.  VistaPrint or CatPrint seem to be the favorites around here for digital printing.  And of course you can always print them yourself at home. 

I purchased a printable design from an Etsy seller for $45 and had them letterpressed by Reaves Engraving.  I purchased the paper and envelopes from Paper Presentation.  While they were not cheap, I feel like I got a great deal – My letterpressed beauties ended up costing less than digitally printed invitations from sites like Minted and WeddingPaperDivas.

I plan on using etsy. I recently ordered baby shower invites for a friend, and they came out beautifully.

We used 123Print. Originally we were all about awesome invitations but we couldn’t justify the price (we almost bought a house prior to getting married so we’re on a budget). 

I was happy with our invites but they definitely don’t compare to the $10 per guest type.
