I am trying to determine how much my invitations are going to cost me. I was wondering, is the pocketfold invite acting as the envelope? Whereas you write the address and all on the outisde or does the pocketfold get placed in an additional envelope? I was just on paperandmore.com and for just the pocketfolds for 100 of them are going to cost me around $80, which won’t be bad if I don’t have to purchase additional envelopes to place them in.

I don’t have a photo of our pocket fold invites, but yes, the pocketfold goes into an additional envelope. I wouldn’t recommend mailing just the pocketfold since the inserts inside may fall out during transit.

That’s what I was thinking, that they may fall out. thank you for answering.

You still need a good sturdy or lined envelope if you use pocketfolds, and know your postage is going to go up as well due to the increase of weight.
I did panel pockets! But I made my own.

As yellowshoe said: you’re going to need an additional envelope to make sure your invite stays together. Depending on the colour & shape of your pocket fold you’ll need to also get additional card stock to print the actual invitation on. It’s so worth it in the end though! I just finished mine today:

Our invites are not pocketfolds but our Save-The-Date Cards were.. our postage in the states was 84cents but we put 88 to be safe. You absolutely have to place them in envelopes though.

I did pockets and more! I absolutely love them and would recommend them to anyone. I used metallic and they were gorgeous. Fo 75invites lots of inserts and envelopes I spent 165 total. Loved them!

As others have stated it would be wise to place in an envelope. You don’t want your invitation falling open, or being damaged going through postal service. As MrsRugbee stated too, don’t forget to factor in the paper you will need to print on and mat inside the pocketfold for the invitaiton itself and the rsvp. If it helps any , while you are doing your price comparison we do custom pocketfold invitation for 2.50 a suite (includes pocketfold, mailing and rsvp envelope, custom designed invite matted in pocketfold, matching rsvp, bellyband closure & monogram) No bellyband closure and monogram goes down to 2.30 a set. Maybe this information will help you as you price everything you need to do your own invites. I know it helps me to have numbers in mind to think about.
Good Luck with everything!

Definitely use an envelope! You don’t want all of your hard work to go to waste if they get damaged at the post office! All in all, I think I spend about $175 for 90 invitations, including envelopes.
