Ordered my sister's and mine from indianweddingcards.com, they are iselin based wedding cards manufacturer with Indian roots. Their products are reasonably priced and are of great quality. Do check them out if you feel like it.
I spent $345 on the supplies to make mine. That's for a printer, ink, 125 A2 save the dates, 5x7 invitations, A2 rsvp cards and A2 detail card inserts (all paper was felt cardstock), 375 envelopes (250 of them are white woodgrain embossed), woodgrain embossed vellum paper for wraps, twine and gold wax seals. Does not include stamps. It would have been a lot more to have them made for the look I was going for. The printer itself was 136$ and I desperately needed a new one anyway..and I still have three sets of ink left.
I spent around $130 on 100 invitations with rsvp cards and envelopes with our return address pre-printed. This was Ann's Bridal Bargains. I was very happy with them. They also do guest address printing but we opted not to go with that one.

I used the cannon pixma ix6820. If you get it and you're going to do borderless printing for anything on it, be sure you have standard paper sizes per the printer. My save the dates were not and I ended up cutting the edges off with a rotary paper trimmer. The invitations were 5x7 and it handled them beautifully..even on the textured paper I bought.
I got mine when they were on sale and got them for $208 total with free shipping. My experience was great! The company sends you proofs via email before they print them for you so if you want something changed or don't like your wording, you can change it. Once you approve the proof they print your invites and send them. I got mine in less than 2 weeks and they keep in touch with you throughout the entire process.
The only thing to be aware of is the purchaser has to assemble the invitations, which some people may not like but I didn't mind it and knew it going into buying. They do send you one assembled so you know how to do it. It did not take long and my future mother-in-law and one of my two future sisters-in-law helped me assemble them. We had everything together within 20ish minutes.
They are having a great Black Friday sale going on now!

We ordered our invitations from Minted and they turned out awesome. I chose a template and went through several rounds of tweaking the color and font with a designer until it was perfect (this service is included with the cost of the invitations). Below is the price breakdown:
115 invitations ordered$305 for invite cards$210 for RSVP cards$16 for silver envelopes (instead of white)$71 for envelope addressing-15% discount code ($90 saved) $46 tax $8 shipping=$566 total
Zazzle! I loved this site as the designs are 100% customizable. You can’t beat 60% discount. We only needed 40 invites and we paid 46.50. I made a mistake on the original set and the website customer service gave me a credit to reorder!!!
