I’m DIYing my invites with fancy, 120 pound paper and pocket folds. It was $100 for 50 invites.

That seems very expensive!

We went with weddingpaperdivas.com and love love loved them! People keep complimenting us on them. I loved that they had unique designs and you could customize the colours you wanted. We spent $240 for all of our invitations, rsvp cards, thank you cards, extra envelopes and shipping to Canada. And they were really easy to work with, made sure that we were 100% happy with them before they shipped and they shipped so quickly.

I would definitely recommend looking there! 🙂

You can definitely DIY them. Check out cardsandpockets.com and paperandmore.com for supplies. I got my supplies from paperandmore.com for a little less that $100 for 50 invites. I used a shimmery aqua lagoon pocketfold and did my belly bands with cardstock instead of ribbon.

I went to a local paper shop and ordered the paper. The university printer gave me some great student rates, so our total cost for 120 invites was $187 with postage.

I just bought the pocketfolds at paperandmore.com. Pretty cheap! I love their metalic paper. It looks very expensive and has a nice shimmer.

So I’m looking at paperandmore as well.  I’m just a bit confused.  I’m having someone design my invites, but they will be printed on a 5×7 size paper…But in the A7 Himalaya pocket fold that does not fit correct?  I’m so confused, I’ve tried to figure this out for days, and I can’t seem to figure it out!  Also-  if you do use a pocketfold you can choose a background where the invitation goes, and then glue the invitation on that?  Haha sorry! I’m confused, can you tell!  Any help would be appreciated!!

@CSMA10: I am also doing the A7 Himalaya pocket folds. I found that if you scroll down the product page below the reviews, they tell you what the dimensions should be for everything to work out correctly under “Product Details”. It was a godsend when I found it because I had no idea what to tell my printer!
