Saved So Much with DIY
I couldn't stomach spending hundreds of dollars on invites for my wedding, so I picked these up when they were on sale for 50% off. 125 invites for around $75... not too shabby! I ended up cutting my own paper to print insert cards and also printed all the envelopes and reply cards (on my home printer). Full disclosure: I have a graphic design background so laying out the invites was a bit easier for me than someone who doesn't have design software, but I'm not gonna lie, for 100 invites it probably took me a collective 20 hours from starting to design the invite to putting the last stamp on. This is not a project for the lazy or impatient! Peeling the little double sided tape strips to press in the invite was probably the lengthiest process, and I only applied two strips instead of four per invite. Overall I'm very happy with my decision and have received numerous compliments. Are they "professionally printed fancy"? No, but it will probably save you at least $300 in the long run. Also be prepared to iron the bows that come with it. They're pretty wrinkled from the way they're packaged in the box, and they're also a pain in the butt to get into the envelope when tied around the pocketfold. The only reason I gave it a 4.5 rather than 5 is the time it took to put them together
