just one warning about michaels, I had to run to 2 stores bc I needed 200 total and they didn’t have enough in stock (but I have 3 within a 40 minute radius)  annoying but doable     so you may have to do a bit of running to get enough depending on how many you need

@Meowkers: Those are gorgeous! I just ordered my invites from catprint… How was the quality? I’ve only ever heard great things about them!

This is my DIY STD (not really an invite, but I think it counts!). I know some of y’all have seen the first iteration–this is the second edit, with the last name erased.

@sexxysheddy: I’m not exactly sure yet. I’m a graphic designer by profession so I know that my invitations are going to be super labor intensive and I will probably never be satisfied with them. Haha. I really like these invitations, though, and might use them for inspiration:

This has been my recent project…We had a friend do the design for us, and then we did the printing and cutting at home. We have an airline ticket for the wedding and a luggage tag on the back for brunch the next day. The RSVP ticket stubs are removable for people to send back to us. It’s taken a lot of time, but we are saving a ton of money. I have a friend who is having passport-themed invites professionally done, and she is paying about 4 times the amount more than we did.

@sexxysheddy: Im buying mine from etsy from InvitingMoments.  They look so great and for 1.60 a set I received one invitation, envelopes, rsvp or reception card or postcard (I opted for the postcard) and a return address label.  I am going to spend 270 for 200 sets.  This was the most amazing deal I could find.  Etsy has a ton of other shops, some are crazy $$$ and others are reasonable.

@natbug21: yes catprint quality is great and the customer service is wonderful.  We had some snafus with the file type we uploaded and some other issues.  I called them up, (it’s really one guy, Greg), and he took care of everything immediately and overnighted it.
