I have had good luck with paperpresentation.com.  If you want a thinner cardstock that is still substantial enough for an invite (80 lb), there are some great deals to be had on this site. They have the cheapest good-quality envelopes I have found as well.  Good luck!

I probably wouldn’t get a weight much beyond 104, but I would stick right around 80. Also for a neater crease, head to the craft shop and buy a cheap Fiskar cutter, but also buy some scoring ends. That way you can score it and then fold. It works out fantastic!

I used the scorer for my origami paper boxes. I was going to make the pocketfolds, but found it was only going to be $30 more (when I added in the cost for double sided tape and paper) to go with Cards and Pockets, so I just ordered them.

For mine, I ordered the outer pocket from Cards and Pockets and then had a local printer do all of the inserts (way cheaper than ordering and printing individually online – local printer can print in large sheets and cut them versus having to do them one at a time on pre-cut paper).  I’d definitely vote for just ordering the outer pockets.

I used Cards and Pockets too. They’re not cheap, but their prices seem fair. I’m not confident about making that many precise cuts with a paper cutter, so I ordered their pre-cut cards and mats, made to fit perfectly into the pockets. I’ve got access to a high-end laser pritner that can handle a lot of different sizes and weights of paper. If you’re running your own, you might want to test a few to make sure they don’t jam in your printer. Otherwise, you can have a local Copy Shop print and cut the cards for you. Just use the size guidelines on the Cards and Pockets website. Good luck!

I got mine at http://www.handmade-papers.us. Susan is the owner there and has over 3000 different papers and cardstocks to choose from, all gorgeous and really economical when you consider that the sheet is 20″x30″. This is big enough to cut into perfect wedding invites of any style and it works out cheaper than buying lower quality stuff at office supply stores most of the time.

Also, if you do order, make sure you request flat pack boxing and pay the extra charge, there are no returns Susan wraps your paper in plastic so if the delivery guy drops the package while you are at work and it is pouring rain (as it was in our case) then your stuff will not be wrecked!

I used 150 gsm for the outer cards and 110lb for the inner cards. I put a posting about it and they really do have the widest selection of different papers in stock ( I have been to the warehouse in Ann Arbor) and the prices are really great. More importantly since the paper is handmade your invites will be uniquely, well, yours.
