I’m just starting to look into DIY projects and whatnot to start after/if I make it through the holidays in one peice! (Pray for me!) Anyway, I got an e-mail from magnetstreet.com saying they’re having a sale, as per usual and I stumbled upon their wedding program fans. I think they’re super cute and guests could potentially use them as a favor since many weddings don’t have favors as much anymore. Problem is that they’re $2.80 each and of course they’ll be more expensive for me because I live in Canada. The regular programs are like, $1.30 each, but I want to make a fan!
So, I thought maybe I could make them myself and save money. But will I even save money really? I’ll need to buy all the supplies, which would probably add up. I’m thinking about having 100-115 of them.
Anyway, I thought I’d ask the experts on here.
-Did you order yours online? If so, from where? What did you end up paying for them?
-Did you DIY? Again, if so, what did you end up paying for them?
Thanks again, bees!

We went the DIY route. 100 programs for the cost of paper and ink. Paper was $2.50 (normally $5 but had a 50% off coupon) and our printer already had ink – didn’t need more than a cartridge so we didn’t really count that cost.
ETA: We didn’t do fans so that would probably change things. This is what ours looked like:

See what your local print shops charge! I know mine had some really cute fan programs for under $2.

$2.80/piece is crazy! I ordered these from Amazon and will print them on my home computer. Out of all the things in a wedding, a program is not something I felt needed to spend money on. These have a good weight to them and I made them in about 30 minutes on Microsoft Word. If you’re set on the fan program thing, I just saw these. Even with shipping to Canada, it should be waaaay less than what you were looking at.
Just looked up Canadian Amazon-

Ugh, nevermind. I just read some pretty bad reviews on that product kit.
I’ll just have to pop by Michael’s sometime and keep looking online!
