My Acrylic Invitations!

So, I really wanted acrylic invitations for our art deco-inspired wedding. I found a design that I really loved (well, that my FH loved, and I had to let him have a say in something lol). They were $8 per invitation suite and that was more than we were willing to spend. But my heart was set. So I started researching sellers on alibaba.com. I was really nervous because I'd never purchased anything from Alibaba before and didn't wanna get scammed. I had to go through a few sellers before finding one whose English was good enough where we could communicate easily without things getting lost in translation.

But I found a 'trusted seller' who could make the same exact design for a third of the price -- $2 each. I showed her the design and told her what font I wanted her to use. It took about a week from the time I placed the order until shipment. My grand total was $195 for 60 invites, pearlized envelopes, and INCLUDING shipping. They got here in four days, and they're perfect! Beautiful, high-quality, and each invitation is covered in a plastic film to avoid scratches; you just have to peel it off before mailing. I bought gold glitter envelopes from Amazon for the inner envelope and I mailed them all out the other day for $1 a piece. 馃榿

    They came out great! Quick tip, make sure that you have the post office mark them as hand sort only. If they go through the sorting machine, they will possibly get destroyed.

    Yep. That's why I was charged $1. The postage was $0.85 and then an additional $0.15 per invitation to hand sort them.

    I bought my invitations from Aliexpress and they were laser cut and glitter for $150 for 115 invitations. Took two weeks to get to the US from China, but was about 80% cheaper than every other place I looked. Sometimes you just have to take the chance and pay with credit card or Paypal incase it doesnt work out.
