I printed them myself on my trusty canon mp 780. It turned out great, I didn’t even use a whole thing of ink! 

I got complements on them which means people noticed! I got my pocketfolds and paper from paperandmore.com. They were great and easy to use. They did the cutting for me. I designed them on apple pages.

Go for it!

I think you can totally do some nice + great looking invitations on the cheap with your color printer.  Does your printer print on card stock?  If so thats great but if not you can use text weight paper to print on and then adhere that to card stock as a backing.  I am taking an idea from Miss. Deviled Egg and using Watercolor paper for my invites.  Its just the watercolor paper you can buy in a craft or art store and if you get it on sale it can really be cost efficient (ie last week it was on sale at Michaels for 40%).  My printer will print on that and the texture of it I think looks awesome.  To jazz up the design you can either buy something you like from istock photo or you could try stamping/embossing (check out some good info here http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/stamping-tips). Then just work with good fonts (you can get them for free online at places like 1001freefonts.com) to make it look elegant and professional.
