I love French Paper. Their Modtone line has nice colors that make up an unobtrusive pattern. They come in different weights and even have corresponding envelopes in standard invitation sizes. We used Modtone, Speckletone, and Muscletone and are layering them.

I got all of my burgundy, orange and linen cardstock from Hobby Lobby when they were having 50% off sales. I even made my own envelopes with matching cardstock but it was a pain so i probably won’t do that again, lol. I did buy my plain white cardstock from wal-mart that I used for the programs and the mintbooks.

I plan to use http://www.paperandmore.com (I ordered samples from them and loved them; placing the actual paper order today).  We used http://www.envelopemall.com for save the date envelopes, and i think we’ll go back to them for stardream envelopes for the invites as well.

I just ordered sample packs of paper and envelopes from paperandmorecom, and I’m so excited to get them for my first DIY project — Invites. 🙂

I used http://www.bluedotpapershop.com  MUCH cheaper than Paper Source & they have tons of colors and materials.  It is a small business & the customer service is incredible!

I got most of my paper from discountcardstock.com I did get some things from Hobby Lobby and paperandmore, but honestly discountcardstock was the best price I could find. They have a special section where you can buy it in bulk, I think it was 250 sheets. Even when hobby lobby is half off they can’t touch this price. Also, one reccomendation I have is to get your paper cut in the size that you need profesionaly. I took mine and got 400 sheets (vellum & cardstock) cut into 5×7 and it only cost me 50 cents. I also got some really good envelopes that were silver lined I believe I got them from papers-papers.com (if I read it from the box correctly. If you are looking for the best prices I PROMISE they are at these websites, I literally spent hours searching because I am on a fairly tight budget and want to save where I can. Good Luck! 🙂
