ok ladies, you all have inspired me. I went to michaels and got the DIY kits. I got them at 40% off so paid about 26 bucks for a box of 40 and I need about 100 so I spent about 80 bucks for my invitations before printing. that is about $1.50 an invite. I will post pics one I start making them!

we bought the same DIY invitation kit as you did!
I am making a few changes… I am adding a purple matte behind the main invitation and am buying purple ribbon to replace the white. We are also going to add a monogrammed wax seal to the front.
It can be done!!

i think we will go with 123print.com. we did save the dates from vista print and it was 110 bucks after shipping for 250— i ordered way too many… i think i will be ordering 150 invites will be less the 85 dollars with coupon codes

I got my whole invitation set off Vistaprint for less than $40. It was nothing fancy, just the invite, the rsvp card and matching inner and outer envelopes. I was pleased with the quality of the printing and paper.

Wow, less than $40? How many invitations did you order?

I came up with the design, my husband drew it, and I printed and assembled them. They were free because I used stationery I already had, we just paid for postage.

I love these! They are amazing 🙂 Great work to both of you.

i used cardsandpocket.com to order everything – you can spend a little extra for precut sizes of cardstock, or you can do what i did and order cardstock in 8.5×11 and cut them down yourself. they are the cheapest i could find while still maintaining the level of quality i wanted in the paper. my order actually just arrived today, so i don’t have a picture of a completed invitation yet

I downloaded the template from downloadandprint.com then just made all the cards in photoshop. I printed them myself on 64# linen paper from Office Depot, and then had them cut at Kinkos for $20.
These pictures aren’t very good, but the invites turned out really well.

Those are amazing may I ask how you did them? I want to make my invites from scratch by myself too… I have no idea where to start….

Mine aren’t really DIY, but I ordered them from Invitation Consultants and they were really reasonable. And I love them!

I can’t remember exactly how many I ordered but I’m confident it was over 50 sets. I sent out 90 or so invites and I had some left over.
ETA, by 90 or so, I mean with couples and stuff. It was 90-ish people total and between 40 and 50 invitation sets.
