what did you do?
If you bought premade… how much? and from where?
if you did it yourself.. how much? and how time consuming and meticulous was it?
I am debating back and forth because i just know that if i did it ALL on my own i would have some crooked invitations… i dont mind the way it looks in my scrapbook because i like the cluttered and layered look there, but i want to have some professional looking DIY..
also.. to prevent my seemingly imminent crooked invitations.. did anyone take their paper to get cut somewhere? i’m just wondering how much money i may be blowing on that too…

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.
