  1. Hi there!

  2. Check out these Printable Invitations (www.diyinvitationtemplates.com) for printable invitations that you can print right now using your own printer. They have predesigned (actually modern) invitation templates…you just have to change the wording to your own & print. It’s pretty easy, but the quality really depends on your printer. We saved ours to disk & brought it in to our local printer since we don’t have a color printer at home. Still saved a TON of money & they turned out fabulous! I used one of their designs for our save-the-dates too & backed them w/adhesive magnet sheets. They looked really professional.

  3. I found some cool clip art and borders at this website http://www.csaimages.com. Cheap stuff under the elements section.

  12. Natalie says:

    My theme for our wedding is “Peace, Love, and Music” with a peace sign, a heart and a music note. I CANNOT find anything that goes in that direction with the colors : turquoise, cream, and chocolate!

    Would love a reply to my email. Nat_atlie@yahoo.com

  14. Hey, just wanted to let you know that the above link for PaperSource, sends you to the wrong website. It’s just misspelled. 🙂 It’s just, ‘Papersource.com’.

  15. Hi
    We ordered our invitations from Butinski Designs. We ordered the honeysuckle diy invitations. They even went the extra step and did a layout of the invitation for us and walked us through the printing process. We received the diy price with the customer service of customized invitations.
    We are going to go back and have them do matching thank you cards for us.
    Great little Paper Company!

  16. Hi we specialize in custom designed invitations, programs and more for all budgets! We have some of the best prices online for customized stationary and that’s including shipping & handling. Visit our site @ http://www.2simplyimagine.com or email me directly with questions at kmint25@gmail.com

  17. $1 per invitation IS still expensive. Personally, I just made my own using vellum, cardstock and my printer. I paid about $30 for ~100 invitations. Add in postage and TOTAL I spent $100. Depending on the invitation style, you could pay $1+ per invitation just for postage. A tip: don’t choose square or heavy invitations. Square invitations have higher postage because they are not machineable. Heavy invitations can add another ounce (or more!) to the weight of your invitation which means another stamp. Also, choose post cards for RSVPs if you’re on a budget. That saves you about 20 cents per card!

  19. We went the DIY route and created our own invitations. Bought paper at Michaels with 40% coupons, used our own printer and got a free wedding invitation template at http://printableinvitationkits.com/. We saved a ton – we got professional-looking results at a fraction of a cost. I like that our invitations have unique and personal touch because we created them ourselves.
