I got mine as templates on Etsy and had a local print shop print them they ended up being 50 cents each to print! And the template was only 10$ it was super easy to write it your info and customize it!
You can design your own and print them at Staples/OfficeMax if your home printer is not an option. Zazzle and Etsy have a great selection but Etsy I've noticed doesn't have wiggle room for fonts if you have a certain one you like. Etsy sells a bundled full set (invite, reply card, other inserts) while Zazzle/Vistaprint/Shutterfly do not. It all comes down to personal preference.
My fiancé is a graphic designer and is designing ours and then we are printing them off at walmart! Another option is, my friends are hating married in June and they are sending theirs out as christmas cards since christmas cards are so much cheaper
I bought a Groupon for Printerpix. They didn't have a lot of options as a standard, but if you don't mind tweaking a template on there you can modify their cards to be really cute. Under $50 for 250 was worth it to me.
I used VistaPrint and I selected a "reception card" instead of a standard invitation because they're about half of the price. They're FULLY customizable, so I just edited it to be an invitation and on the back, I put my wedding website and RSVP deadline. I didn't upgrade the paper either, I kept it their standard cardstock or whatever it is. I waited until they had a good sale going on and ended up getting them 40% off. I got 150 invites with envelopes for $77.80.
Truly Engaging by MagnetStreet has tons of selection for really affordable prices. Right now they have 75% off. They have a free sample kit that actually includes a lot of textures, colors, and invitation types. You can use their templates and customize them as much as you want. I just ordered my Save the Date with them and I loved the final product. They also arrived super quick.
I waited for a sale on cardstock from michaels craft store and bought the amount needed and designed my own, and printed them off on my HP printer. if you can find this on sale or use coupons that's the way to save money. overall my custom invites are a whole lot less than what Shutterfly was going to cost even on sale!
I’ve used Vistaprint for my Save the dates (100 postcards for $27) and I have my invitations in my cart right now for 90 5x7 no fold card and white envelopes for $73, this is with coupons. I highly recommend having Honey to search for the best coupon code.
I’m waiting to order my invitations till NC gets to Phase 3. I really thought we’d be further along by now, but now I’m legit making a backup plan and I hate that.
