I don’t have a good picture of ours since they are in production. We ordered from mygatsby.com. I read tons of reviews, and got multiple samples from them to confirm they have good paper etc. They have tons of designs that range from simple to ornate, and ours is super simple. Also, we are getting invites, reception cards, accomodations cards, and rsvp cards for less than just the invites I liked from weddingpaperdivas.

@Coral99:  I brought the printable file to a printing place and they printed them and cut them for us cause if I tried to cut them it would look like Edward Scissorhands did it hahaha!The printable file from Etsy was about $35 and the girl i worked with was very responsive and did so many changes for me until I liked it.  I also got my bridal shower invite done on Etsy as well and it was also a printable file that we brought to get printed and it turned out amazing also! Too bad Americans cant see Cuba…it is truly an amazing place!!! Maybe on day.Here is my destination wedding invite:

I designed our invites, and had them printed through Catprint. For 250 pieces (50 invites with 5 pieces each) it cost us just over $100 with shipping. If we had chosen to only do an invite and RSVP, however, it would have been cheaper (I just did a quick calculation on their site, and with shipping it would have been $50–so $1/invite–before evelopes/belly band/stamps).

@Coral99:  Both of the printing is flat. The at home invites were on linen paper so those might look like they stand out more because of that. Have you also tried Vistaprint? I know alot of Bees talk about how amzing it is and got there invites from there

I spent a lot of time looking at Wedding Paper Divas – we got our Save-The-Date Cards from them and really liked how they turned out + the service. However, in the end I just didn’t want to pay that much for an invitation. So I drew it myself and added the text in Illustrator:

So that cost us the paper… i.e. nothing. We’ll have them printed on linen cardstock, which we’ll mount in cobalt pocket folds – all from Cards & Pockets. I’m estimating that it will come to less than $100 in total.
