So I have designed my invitation set, I am so excited! But now I need to know where to have them printed. I want them done on a nice quality paper but not SUPER expensive. I was thinking VistaPrint but want to make sure that’s the best option. I was also wondering about Cards and Pockets but I have no idea what they charge. I will have four seperate pieces, the biggest being 6×6.
I was also thinking about having kinkos, office depot, or ups print them but can they print on a nice quality paper? Would I just buy the paper and take it all to them?
Or could I do this all at home? Can I print at home on nice quality paper?
Aghh…thanks for any help!

We designed our own suite and then printed at at FedEx/Kinkos. They have tons of different options for stock, so you don’t even need to bring paper to them, just the files for the different invitation pieces. We chose to print there instead of at home so they could handle cutting, etc. We were very happy with the cost and the result! Also, they provide a proof on the paper you selected prior to printing the whole job, to make sure you’re satisfied.

Catprint! They will send you paper samples and they have WAY more selection than Vistaprint. Better print quality and extra choices (like corner rounding), good prices.

We are printing ours tonight from home. Our photographer designed them and is helping us with printing otherwise I would have paid the extra to have them done at office max. I’m saving about $40 doing them at home.

@lyns86stc: What kind of paper are you using?

I printed my friend’s shower invitations at Office Max and they did a really great job

Mine are coming tomorrow from CatPrint- you get a free hard proof, which is a big plus (found something that needed correcting). I LOVE their paper choices- there’s a shimmer paper that’s fantastic for weddings.
Invites, Guest info card, reply card, custom printed reply envelopes for 90 were about $175 (I already had the larger mailing envelopes)

@rebwana: Wow, that’s pretty good. What paper did you use? I just ordered a free sample booklet of the papers from them.
