@theredhead: Zazzle.com is great. If you find something that you kinda like, but want some tweaks, just contact the artist. I liked one invitation but it was square, so I asked her to make it 5×7 so I mail it with just a regular stamp. (Then I asked her to make RSVP post cards ) Also, dont be shocked by the prices. That’s just for one. Once you put in your actual amount the per inviation price really drops.
Always check their sales for paper products and stamps. I was able to get personalized stamps for a steal. If I remember corectly, just a few cents above the regular postage rate.

We had our letter press invitations done by a local company. We gave them a general idea of what we wanted, then they designed them, we ok’d it and they press/printed them. I’m really happy with how they came out and I’m pleased we spent the extra money rather than vista printing them.

I ordered out Save the Dates from vistaprint.com, but REALLY wanted ones from minted.com! …Funds were the only reason I didn’t get the minted.com ones. They were like double the price.

How many invites you are planning to send out? If there isn’t a lot to send, Michael’s has got good invitation sets.
I’m printing via Staples. DIY post-card invites to save on postage.
I have got some websites saved on my Invite board on Pinterest; feel free to look around: http://www.pinterest.com/cynniebun/invitation-ideas/
I had a couple I liked on Etsy, but to spend more than $4 per invite after postage wasn’t FI’s preference.

We ordered ours from MeganElizabethShop on Etsy. She was fantastic to work with! We got the PDFs and printed them using CatPrint.

I loved a bunch on Etsy but they were out of my budget, so I got mine from Zazzle and I am really happy with them

We are making our own. We made our own engagement party invites and used Vista Print for our STD postcards. We will probably make our own programs too.
