I really don't want to spend $800 - $900 on invites!! How much of a cost savings was it to DIY?

I printed all of the pieces myself, put the flower and pearls on, and made the logo stickers for the envelope... I'd say once I decided on fonts, etc, and started printing, all together it took me about 10 hours, spread out over a few nights. I looked at my reciepts and I think it was a total of about $60 for 25 invitations. So just over $2 each.
