We got custom cut paper from Tom at Anchor Paper.  I asked for I think 60 sheets?  He always throws in a ton extra though.  And I want to say it was $35?  So around 50 cents per sheet.  I had them cut to fit 4×6 inserts.  This was for our Save-The-Date Cards.  If you’re a scrapbooker, you probably have one of those Fiskars cutters?  I just used the scoring blade on that to score the folds.  We used Provo Craft’s Terrifically Tacky Tape (the red roll) and that worked nicely.  We got a ton of compliments on them.  But, we didn’t really have to make THAT many.  Cards and Pockets seems to have the best prices on pre-made pockets.

cards and paper have the cheapest invites. office depot can cut up to 125 sheets at a time, they charge 1.75ish per cut.  so if you have 250 invites and you do 5 x 7 two up on a page then they may have to do 4 cuts, so less than 8 for a precision cut or somewhere around there….

I didn’t have the time (and patience) to do my own pocketfolders. And like you said I didn’t want them to be cricket. So we decided to buy them from Paper and More. The quality is really good, their prices are very reasonable ($39.99 for 50 pockets) and their customer service is great! We did the main invite and all the inserts and having the pre-made pocketfolder made the work much more easier.
