    Hi Everyone

    I am finally finished my invites. I am not getting married util May 30, 2009 but decided to skip STD and send out actual invite. Afer everyone responds I will send out newsletters to those attending

    Before finding this website I went to local stationary store for quote for same exact style except pricing did not include flowers, color ink , no assembly and other details. They quoted me $895 for only 65 invites. I couldn't imagine paying almost $1600 for 110 invites!

    THANK GOD for this forum, I saved a lot of money!! I want to give a shout out to all the ladies here for their great ideas, could not have done this without you all. You ladies are ROCK STARS!!!

    I made total 110 invites

    From cards and pockets (Click the image to open in full size.

    Total $ 335.74

    Purchased Outer Envelopes in Cream from LCI (Click the image to open in full size.

    Ribbon- Michael's and Jo Ann Fabrics
    Offray Firefly Wired Ribbon qty 10 @ 4.79 each

      Those turned out great! Are you sure you've never used a publishing program before?
