    I think VistaPrint is probably the cheapest. Especially if you can find a Groupon. 

    I’m getting my invites printed at Cards and Pockets, but I am not sure if they are the cheapest.

    I’d Vistaprint them. If you can get a Groupon ($17 for $70), it is really cheap. The quality will be FAR better than what you could print at home or at Kinko’s.

    We did our Save-The-Date Cards and Rehearsal Dinner invites as well as programs through Vistaprint. I have been exceedingly happy with them. I do get the upgraded paper though.

    @fedex office (Kinkos) it’s 10 cents a page if you bring your own paper. The laser printers mean you can print on stardream paper! Also, they have those big cutting tools there for you to use free.

    I printed all my invites and stationary at home.  I purchased paper and cardstock from paperandmore.com, definitely the least expensive option.

    I designed my own invites/RSVP’s/programs and then had a local printing company print, cut, fold and hole punch (for ribbon). They turned out great and all I paid was about $50 including envelopes!

    So I would check into a local print shop if you have one. They do great work and really care about what they are giving you (vs. a chain like Kinkos)

    I actually had my Etsy invites printed at Sam’s club photo center. 5×7 at .38 cents each!, matte finish & they came out BEAUTIFUL! I called many office printing places (kinkos, staples, office max, etc) and there were just too many questions for me to answer (I’m so NOT computer/paper savvy). 

    So I did a test run at Sam’s & was very satisfied. I redeemed a Shutterfly $20 gift card (shutterfly price 5×7 @ .99cents) & they didn’t come out nearly as nice as the ones from Sam’s, the color was a lil faded.

    I uploaded the etsy invite file to Sam’s online & they were ready to be picked up within an hour or so. Btw, Sam’s 4×6 are only .13 cents. Be sure to click the “turn off in-Club color correction” box when you check-out.

    With those prices it doesn’t hurt to print off a few & see for yourself 🙂

    @LEwife543:  I say none of these. I use my local community college/universities to do my printing.

    I once got an entire wedding suite (invites, rsvps, info cards and accomadation cards) printed for 100 people for $35 bucks. They cut everything and the quality was magnificent.

    @LEwife543:  I got married right after college, and I had a huge print quota with my college’s library, so I printed for free!  Lucky me, right?!

    We printed our wedding invites on our home printer.  They looked awesome!

    I got my 150+ invites, 200 return address labels and 700 drink tickets for about 30 dollars from vistaprint with groupon.
