So excited! Hive, I gotta tell you, I went through about 800000000 ways of thinking of how to put our invitation suite together. I was all ready and gearing up to do it myself, but then one day I honestly just got sick. of. it. So, in a somewhat rash decision, the Fiance and I said “screw it! we’re ordering the darn things!” because we have so few guests, it just came to be easier that way… We got the sparkling sapphire perfettos to go with our Navy/Copper color scheme!
Anyone else think they would DIY something, but it was easier to just get it pre-made?

BEAUTIFUL!! I was totally a bride that decided many things were easier to get pre-made. Time is money! (sometimes) 🙂 Love your pocketfold choice!

I just ordered mine today, got the same color but the Signature style. I got the sample, LOVE IT!
I’m DIYing the main part of the invite, and sent my designs for the five enclosures (5 sizes) to Cards & Pocket for printing. Their sample print was outstanding! Plus it was only about $80 more for them to print them than it would be for me to order the paper from them, and have to print and trim the sizes myself. So the cost of the ink and the time it would take me to do this just didn’t justify saving the $80 especially when I’m saving $5000 doing my invites as opposed to having the same ones done professionally. Their printing looks more professional too, I only have the inkjet. For the main part I am printing the vellum overlay on the laser printers at Staples.

Thank you, ladies! I really appreciate the feedback. We’re also designing/creating all the other components to the invitation, but in looking for the cardstock necessary to make pocketfolds, I had no idea where to buy 11×17 cardstock… ish.
