I’m big on diy, but I remember the stress and papercuts from making my sister’s invites from scratch.
I’m bouncing around a few ideas. I have yet to see an invitation kit (the boxed kind you print at home) that I like enough, but if I do, I’m open to that. The other idea is to purchase pocketfolds and do the rest myself. I’m very crafty, but as long as they look good, I’m fine. I’m sure if I get a box kit that I’d still jazz it up with a ribbon or something.
Boxed kits-where did you get them, any different ones, cost?

has pocketfolds, still cheaper to make them on your own, here’s a tutorial from another Bee:
Idk about the boxed kits, but I’m probably going to just print on pretty paper at staples/kinkos. Cards and pockets does custom cutting too, which I think is easier and actually cheaper than having the printing place do the cutting….if you already know your sizes.

You could also have a designer personalize or create a new design for you, which you could then print at home.
Or you could create your own design and send it off to a printer (this is also possible with letterpress).
Places to get good paper and pocketfolds: Paper Source, Paper Presentation, Paper and more, Cards & Pockets etc
I’m not very informed about invitation kits, but I have seen several good ones at Michaels.
