After looking at EVERY website out there, and being sad that the design I liked at WPD was WAY more than I wanted to spend… I got them from Vistaprint. When I ordered, they had 40% off invitations, and the postcards had a deal going on too.

It was $235 (including shipping), and we got:

  • 150 RSVP postcards
  • 30 Ceremony-Only invitations
  • 150 Reception invitations
  • 30 Reception location cards
  • 150 Information Cards

All came with envelopes (which the extra I am recycling for our place cards!)

I used Vistaprint too! They have a lot of designs or you can upload on your own. I took advantage of one of their (regular) sales and got 60 invites and RSVP’s w/ envelopes and 100 return address labels for $100.

heatherdanyel:  I orderd mine from Storkie, but in my research for invitations I found  that the more you order, the less expensive they are, so I am not surprised they are that much. 

But try Storkie, they might be cheaper

I know this doesn’t isn’t the usual. Actually, I haven’t seen anyone in this forum that got them at the same place. 

We got ours at Party City!

very simple and elegant, and cheap. We needed a lot.

they have a stupid amount of options too!!!

At the moment we’re planning on getting both our Save the Dates ($2 each) and Invitation ($4 each) from Etsy. Of course things are subject to change, but since neither of us are very good with graphic design and whatnot, unless one of our family members offers to help us we’ll likely end up purchasing them. We have a smaller guest list however (I think we’re topping out at around 60 and we’re sending per household, not per guest), so that does help our situation.

I bought mine off Etsy as well. We did letter press invitations and the whole suite was about $4 each (that included inner and outer envelopes, invitations, invitation insert, RSVP cards and envelopes). I loved the guy that I worked with! Here’s a link to his shop:

tigergrrl2008:  Hi which design did you use for your invitations? I looked through his designs and didn’t see any that came up for $4 for the whole suite which is what I’m looking for.

I created and printed our invitations [and our entire paper suite], we got the presized paper [because im lazy and didn’t want to cut everything down] from paper source. We got a lot of compliments on them and everyone asked how much they were cost and were surprised they were so cheap!!

amy.d-y:  I ordered the following design:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/178170223/letterpress-wedding-invitation-fleur-de?ref=shop_home_active_19

I did order 250 invitations though, so the price reflected the volume of the order. And I think it was closer to $4.75 per invitation now that I go back and look at my order detail lol. It’s cheaper for Andre (the shop owner) to print larger jobs, so he gives you a volume discount. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and we made multiple revisions back and forth before a final design was reached. I really, really enjoyed working with him!

Good luck!

heatherdanyel:  I am DIY’ing my invites, so I’m purchasing my cardstock either from Michael’s or Cards and Pockets. I designed them myself and am printing them from home. 

For my STD, I commissioned a portrait of us for my Fiance as a surprise for his birthday in April, but Fiance loved it so much he wanted to use it for our STD. I had a sample printed through VistaPrint and I’m not 100% impressed, so I’m looking for someone else to print them. 

I would suggest typing in some key words into Etsy and seeing if anything pops up. From there, you can either buy physical items or digital files and have them printed elsewhere.
