Just a little nosey survey to find out who you used for your invites/reply cards, how many you got and how much you spent… the prices for stationary are so all over the place I’ve no idea what’s reasonable! Thanks hive!

i ordered from costco and got beautiful invites with RSVP cards and lined envelopes for <$3 each. the unit cost goes down as you order more – i only ordered 50.
i’m not a big invite person, so i was determined not to spend a lot of money on them.

I paid $3-something per set which included the invites, rsvp card and envelope, direction card, and reception card. Our address was printed on the main envelope and rsvp envelope from Karah.

Hey – I actually made my own invitations. I ordered enough paper for 200 invites (We really only used about 100, so I am saving the rest for programs). Total cost of paper and supplies for 200 invites was right around $200 which averages at about $1/invite, which is a GREAT deal! (That included invite, rsvp and reception card, an inner and outer envelope). If you would like handmade invitations, I am planning on starting a business soon and would love to wokr something out with you. Maybe for the cost of supplies and some great feedback! I’d love to chat with you about it. Email me: [email protected]

I am making my invitations myself also. For 100 invitations it is probably going to cost somewhere around $700.00.

I’m making my own letterpress invitations. With Crane Lettra paper, Crane crested envelopes in A7 and 4bar and a custom embosser, the total is running about $200 for invitations, rsvps, save the dates and reception cards for about 140 invitations.
The letterpress was a big expenditure, but since I’ve owned it from before my engagement, I’m not counting it as an expense (and they retain value quite well, so if I ever sell it, I’ll prob. make my money back).

I used seal-and-sends. They were about $1 each and you save on postage, too because the reply card is a postcard.

Target, baby! I bought 200 blank invites/response cards, etc. (sold in boxes of 50) and spent around $110 including tax. I’ll spend some money on printing, but all in all a great deal!
