maegen88:  She did 84 Invitation Suites, consisting of guest address and the return address on the main envelope, and the RSVP envelope address. I paid $180 for that, plus $22 in shipping according to my receipt (total of $202). I had a $0.15 surcharge for metallic ink, but it ended up being $2.15 per suite plus shipping. It was $1 per outer envelope, $0.50 for return address, $0.50 for RSVP envelope, and the $0.15 surcharge for metallic gold ink.

It looks like she raised her prices recently and now is not offering the RSVP or Return Addressing to clients who don’t have custom invitations done (we didn’t; ours came from Wedding Paper Divas), but it would be about the same price for the outer envelope and any surcharge. Sorry, I didn’t realize her prices changed, I just had her do ours in March/April, so it wasn’t too long ago.

studentloansforlife:  None that I feel comfortable sharing online because they have personal information – it’s too bad that in order to really give you a sense of the labels, I’d have to post people’s names and addresses!  But I found that her actual work is very consistent with what she posts online.  She was also really clear about managing expectations – she will tell you exactly when she can work on your job.  

In fact, I’m having her do our vows as an anniversary gift for Darling Husband and she said “I won’t be able to work on this until the first week of August.  If that won’t work for you, let me know and I will recommend someone else.”  I really appreciate that she does that.

studentloansforlife:  Oh wait – I guess I can low-tech blur some of the info, so you get the idea.

Since the stamp is rubber, you can use it with any color of ink.  We did green for Christmas cards, for example.
