price to pay for each item....
Posted 02 April 2007 - 08:08 PM
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 cards? 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!

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 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.
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.

(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?
