Beachwed2013- that's not cost effective...that's a STEAL! I'd LOVE to spend $100 on 125 invites!! haha. You did a FABULOUS job!!! Seriously they look professional. My FI and I are currently getting quotes for boarding pass STD & Passport Invites thru a few etsy sellers but they're still upwards of $900+. I'd much rather find some templates and create my own too. I also think it's a great personal touch...kind of like receiving a handmade card for your birthday!

Glue - $2, paper - $25, Postage - About $50. Ribbon - $10. Envelopes - $10. Total Cost - about $100 for 125 invites! Printed at home
I got an excellent deal on paper at Jo Ann's and it worked out well. Usually you pay between 2-3 per invite and then include postage so Yes for me it was cost effective! And extremely personal for all the guests! I was really proud of them and knew that i put the effort in for each guest
