do you have a design already? or are you looking for the design to be made and the printing?

We’re paying about $5.50 per invite for ours, 2 color and she has to create the design as well. That’s just the invite, there’s more for envelopes, matching thank you cards, etc etc. This is the cheapest we found in the NYC area (from those we looked at) which tends to be a more expensive area, lol.

The last letterpress design I sent to print ( i am a designer) was a 2 color job 5×7 on really heavy paper stock (crane lettra: paper DOES matter) it was for 50 cards and was around $400. Keep in mind this was just printing, does not include design work at all

 

hope that helps

It matters what you want done.  It can be as much as $1000-3000 if you want design.  Each card has a high cost (reception card, invite, response card) and it adds up.  Some brides have done their own buying a machine for themselves (I think it’s around $300 but I’m not sure) but I don’t trust myself to make something that doesn’t look like a five year old had a part in it.  Yet another bride went to a nearby college that had a machine.  I ended up not doing it but ::sigh::  it’s soooo pretty!

@Bookishbelle, who’s your vendor? I’m in NYC and looking.  That sounds fairly reasonable, though I have no idea how much they are suppose to cost, lol!

@smokingpoint:  We used http://www.9spotmonk.com/…I’m not sure EXACTLY the cost since I’m not the one footing the bill (my parents are) but I believe that’s what it came down to for just the invite (more if you’re doing rsvp cards too, we’re having ppl rsvp online though). We thought it seemed reasonable 🙂

I think I paid around 250 for 75 – one color with rsvp card. Envelopes were not included

I found the seller through WeddingBee classifieds.

I got mine through Mercurio Brothers. We designed our own and had them letterpress it. We purchased envelopes from paper presentation.

For 90 Invitations (2 color letterpress), 90 digital printed info cards and 90 digital printed reply cards = $677.

$1000 for 100 invitations. This was about 50% off because it was a flash sale through 100 layer cake.
