Designing them myself (a fairly simple design with a leaf) I’m making pocketfolds  with 4 inserts. and spent about $200 on materials for 125 invitiations (similar guest list to yours)  I ordered all my supplies from Paper and More and Paper Source.  I’ve also looked at LCI paper and Cards and Pockets

Printing will be approximately another $50-75 (I’m anticipating a little more than one color ink cartidge on my printer) and the rest is the cost of my labor! (and enlisted friends and family)

I’ve searched for inspiration on Wedding Paper Divas, Paper Source and more…if you want to do them cheap, you can do them yourself beautifully!

I was going to make my own invites, but then time got away from me. Luckily, a friend of mine recommended Amanda. She just started her company recently (Made with Love Paperie). Custom design for a super affordable price. She has multiple options so you can see how it plays into your budget. We originally didn’t have budget to have letter press invitations, but now we do. 🙂

She’s great with phone and e-mail communication too!

I ordered mine from http://www.Paper-Source.com.  It cost about $300 for 100 invitations but that’s because we wanted letterpress. 

http://www.WeddingPaperDivas.com has some really nice ones too!  One way to make them a little more unique is to mount one of their invitations on a piece of colored cardstock.

HTH!

I was going to do them myself, too, but realized that I had no time.  I asked a friend of mine for any suggestions and she recommended Wedding Paper Divas.  They have reasonable prices and lots of nice styles to choose from.  I ordered mine and also found out a code for a 10% discount: RMN10 or WPDFRIEND

I love the stuff Wedding Paper Divas produces, but it is a little out of my price range.  Honestly, I know that invitations ‘set the mood’ for the wedding – but I have issues mailing out this $5 invitation to someone who sends back the RSVP card and throws the rest of it away.  So, after asking around, one of my girlfriends let me know about Costo.com – they have great invitations and many for $75/100.  I am either going to DIY or else go through them or Carlson Craft.com

 

Hope that helps! 🙂

I’m using Designerpi of Etsy.  Super afforadable and exactly what we were looking for.

There are two vendors on etsy I am going to have to choose from (HeatherCollins 85 and BeyondDesign; Both are absolutely incredible and so talented it’s not funny.  I find their cost much more reasonable than some of the designers out there and my invites I like are detail-oriented and ornate.

Here’s the one I’m leaning towards from HeatherCollins 85 and the sample she sent me below. Heather is prompt in communication, timely in shipping and will go out of her way to show you colors and samples and give her suggestion as to what would look best.

MissLemon,

Jean M has DIY cardstock, and an invitation kit selection – in a ton of cute, and new colors and designs.

Also, they have single cards – but you can print these really cute designs on them.  I got their catalog and I really love the Abby – it’s like an art-deco feel, with two ink colors and it was cheap!  It was just $120 for 100, and it comes with envelopes – but you’ll have to pay to have them printed with your return address.  Anyway, there are a number of designs available, by invitation.  Still shopping….but I really like this one.  Maybe you’ll find a single card with a cute design. 

I’ve had a few friends do DIY invites lately, and they said – never again.  By the time they bought all the materials, and went through all the angst, they wished they would have bought a printed invite.  But, I have DIY-er friends, and they live for this stuff and scrapbooking, so….

 

Anyway, thought I’d let you know about this vendor – oh yeah, the website is myjeanm.com.

Good luck!

Jaci

I used Etsy – seller WhimsicalPrints.  We used this design: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20634196

They are a $1.90 each for a set of invitation and response card with envelopes (envelopes are each stamped with your return address).  I also ended up getting thank you cards from her as well.  She is great work work with!!

I used Carlson Craft (my fiancee’s aunt owns a printing company that works with them, so we did get a bit of a discount) and I was pleased with the results. 

This is the invite we went with (minus the bow)…  good luck!

One of the bloggers on our site used 1st Class Wedding Inivitations (http://www.1st-class-wedding-invitations) and she really liked them. I think a lot of their invites are from Carlson Craft like AmandaPSU’s invites. Hope this helps!

I’m really undecided, but did see a contest on http://www.myjeanm.com about winning a segment on t.v. and $4,000 worth of products (including invites) – I’m a sucker for giveaways – check it out!
