    After spending 3 days around town looking at invites and realizing the ones i want were about $1500, I decided to DIY them. Does anyone know where to get the metalic pockets for invites at a good price (either on the internet or in ORange County, CA)? Thanks

        I think so :) How is this company priced comparitively? Thanks so much...wasn't sure where to start.

        Also, does anyone know where to get that bamboo or grass paper backing that goes behind the envelopment?

          I got that link from girl who DIYed them (Road to the Aisle: DIY Invitations - A Cost Analysis)... she pretty much said that unless you have the time and patience to do them yourself, that Cards and Pockets is the way to go.

          If you do want to get ambitious and try and make your own... she put some great instructions here:

            This is where I got mine. Welcome to InvitationStar.com

            She was good at communicating and the price was reasonable.

              I would suggest cards and pockets, I've gotten a lot of samples to see their quality, and it's wonderful. I've compared them to other samples from different companies and the quality is the same if not better, for less.

              Also, for backings other than cardstock, you can try http://www.katespaperie.com
