I designed and drew our invites (free), had them printed for $220 including the $30 for scanning with a turn around of less than 24 hours! I also purchased kraft paper brown recycled pocketfolds and white receycled envelopes from paperandmore.com ($70 for 100 of each including shipping), invitation matting and little leaf tags from cardsandpockets.com ($24 for 80- I had a coupon), green raffia from paper source for $12.00, I had the burlap from another project, and ink and calligraphy pen for $9 so $335 for 80 complete invites. These were soooo well received and very worth it. Post wedding I will be starting my etsy invite shop if any bees are interested.

We ordered ours from Sir Speedy’s in Portsmouth, New Husband.  They’re a local copy shop.  I had an idea of what I wanted, and just sent the girl there some pictures, and she put them together. She used the fonts I wanted and everything.  The Save the Dates were $75 for 75 (we had coasters made); the invitations are cheaper than that.  They are amazing and I cannot recommend them enough!!

We made ours.  Bought the pocket online, (don’t remember which website).  Designed them in powerpoint, (weird I know), and had them printed through catprint.

Originally, I was going to make them and found out that all supplies for 85 invites on metallic paper with metallic envelopes and metallic backing would be $450. I checked some printing companies and found some I liked for around $400. I found some on etsy for 85 invitations for $275 and although I had to sacrifice the metallic envelope and invitations, we are getting maps, custom initials and a discount. We are probably going to order programs and table numbers from them also. I will try to post photos of our proof once we get them.
