    My DIY STD's cost a little over $160. I made 70 invitations. The cost includes paper costs, materials (rubber stamps, perferators, envelopes), and mailing stamps.

      I also made mine myself. Well, with lots of help from my cousin, I should say.
      I bought envelopes, paper, photo corners all from Paper Source. My cousin had the letterpress made and printed them for me. Without postage, it was less than $300 and I have tons of leftovers for placecards, tags, menus, thank you's...
      I sent about 80 invites.

        i think i made about 50 or so - i did post a pic somewhere, but now i have a pro picture from Leigh! here are mine ...

        i don't think the inserts are in the shots - but i had 2 cards in there, one was the RSVP (front and back) and one the Welcome Dinner invite - they were pretty casual

        I made all my own and including postage I probably spent around $250
        I sent out about 115 invites

I spent a couple of hours looking on line and got so fed up that I said screw it and just went with the ones I thought looked nice, could fit all of our travel info on them, and were easiest to order online.
              I would not do this again though.
              Where did you order them from? Do you still have the website info?

              Are you making them yourself?

                Invitations: approx. $4.60 each, sent about 50

                STD's: around $8.00 each, send about 75...yup those were expensive

                  i think i lied. it was probably closer to $150-200 after all the postage (to mail, and the return envelopes)
