Hey Girls!

 

I have a question for you....... How much did you spend on each item if you are purchasing them: invitations, table cards, std's, favor tags and place cardshuh.gif? I have a quote from a website for $ 622 for all the items i have mention.....is that too much? or is a a good deal? I have no clue on how much each item should cost or i should pay..... I really, really ,really love their work!

 

 

 

Thanks! -Brandy

I don't know if this will be helpful, because I'm making all of them myself and keeping them simple, but

 

I bought invites, reception cards, response cards & all the envelopes (for 50 invites) for $30

 

I made the save the dates, just bought nice paper & envelopes, I think $15

 

I'm also making the favor tags, haven't bought the card stock yet, but I'm guessing it will be $5-10

 

and I'm not doing the others.

 

How many of each will you get for that price? It doesn't seem like a bad price and it sounds like you really like them, so I'd say go for it. can you post the website?

I'm doing all the items myself.

 

STD's: $15

I used shiny, tri-fold brochure paper and printed 3 color backgrounds on each page and printed a total of 30 pages (total of about 75 STD's, plus about 15 pages printed with errors). I actually got the paper for free from work, but I'm guessing about $15 for the package I have.

 

Invites: $160

This is for 65 invites. I will purchase 5x7 pocket folders and will have a blue invitation mat with a white invitation, plus 4-5 inserts with RSVP envelopes and outer envelopes. I will cut the mat, invitation and inserts myself and print myself. The pocket folders will be $1 each and I found a source for the cardstock for $.10 or less the blue mat. I have a package of white card stock from Wal-Mart that was $5 for 150 sheets.

This includes postage to send them out and RSVP back.

 

Programs / Placecards and Table cards:

Thinking I will do the program hand fans (paper). Haven't priced yet, but since I can get a package of heavy-weight white card stock from Wal-Mart for $5 (150 sheets), I know I could say $5 and have plenty of left over paper for the placecards and table cards to be printed.

 

Ink: I'm guess one more color cartridge, for about $40. I just put new cartridges in, so I'm not certain if it will be necessary or not yet.

Seems reasonable to me. I am close to that on my invitations alone! I guess it depends on how many you are buying of each item. If you really love them then I say go for it. It is your wedding day wink.gif

Our message in the bottle invites were total including stamps: $455

(we bought ink for the color printer for our lables and invites, paper, stamps, shells, twine, $200 were for the bottles, stamps were the second most expensive part)

I used company resources for our table cards, favor tags and luggage tags, so that was almost nothing (shhhh....don't tell :-) )

 

What type on invites are you looking at buying?

Well I made my invites, so that cost me about $60.00 plus the cost of stamps. For our STD's I did the magnets which were like $25.00. I'm also in the process of doing Thankyou cards for the place settings, which won't cost me anything because I have left over paper from another project.
