      (1) did you buy the pre-cut card stock? If so, what printer did you use to print? If not, how did you print and cut your card stock? Seems like a lot of work either way!

      (2) how much postage did each invite require?

      Thanks in advance for your help! Excited to hear your answers... :)
      I bought the pocketfolders, the pre-cut mats (the pink backing behind the invite), the rsvp envelopes, the main envelopes and then I just bought card stock in bulk from them for all the inserts and the invite. I used a HP photosmart printer. I also have an EPSON photo printer. Re-cut would have been easier and less time consuming ONLY IF your printer will accomodate the small paper size and if you can be ok with messing with the graphics until they fit. With cutting ourselves we could fudge a little and we did!

      We did have to buy a cutter, which was well worth the money. I bought the ribbon at Hobby Lobby.

      Also, I had a hard time getting my RSVP envelopes printed. My printer didn't have a setting that small.

      The postage ended up killing me, $1.05 per invite. But this was what I wanted so....be prepared! :)

              I seriously have to thank Andi! I refered to her invites throughout the whole process! I also believe I stole some wording and such for her and other amazing brides like Lisa!

              Thanks Ladies! Seriously don't know what I would have done without your invites!
