250 "Contact Cards"- business cards that we put our personal contact info, website and email addresses on
100 return envelopes
100 mailing envelopes
International and domestic postage for 100 invitations
Large palm tree stamp from Michaels
Aqua and gold stamp pads
9 rolls of aqua satin ribbon to tie it all together
120 Martha Stewart aqua coloured crystals as embellishments - added an extra air of class
Not bad at all for $350!
They were creative and packed full of information. We got millions of compliments! We even had some people call us to RSVP...they said they loved the response card so much they were keeping it!

I spent approx $45.99 on our own, we have needed to get them from the states so with the swapping scale being so great, it most likely works out to generally £25-£28.

vistaprint all the way!! you can almost always find 40% or 50% of sales too. and they honestly, have some pretty decent out-of-the-box designs, if you're not design savvy.
I custom designed our ticket-themed invites and printed via Vistaprint.
100 invitations - 4" x 8"
100 travel info cards - 4" x 8"
= $82 (50% off coupon)
I did have to buy paper from Michaels for the ticket jacket - $8 for a pack of 150 sheets (50% off coupon)
I also had to buy card stock for our luggage-tag RSVP cards - $7 for pack of 200 sheets (50% off coupon)
I also had to source envelopes. the ones that came with the order from vistaprint were plain white and I wanted something prettier - $10 for 100 at JoAnn
All in, for 100 invites, $107
One thing to think about - postage! we stamped the envelopes with a regular stamp and right before I dropped them in the mail, I had the post office confirm the weight and what would you know - they required extra postage. glad we figured out before I mailed them, but it was a surprise. *have the post office weigh before you stamp*
Cheers to Love, Laughter, and Happily Ever After
