    So happy to finally have these ready to mail!  I spent an absurd amount of time price shopping for all the paper, had them printed at a local art store (but I designed for the most part).  I mounted the main invitation on the 5x7 navy pieces, and I also lined all the envelopes - inner envelopes and RSVP ones - myself.  Totally worth all the work now that they're put together!  Here's the vendor and price list:

                  I would recommend them.  I went to Lee's Art Store (on 57th between Broadway and 7th) and worked with Diana.  All the people in the printing department seem really nice and competent though.  The pricing was MUCH more reasonable than other places I checked, like Paper Source - they wanted TWICE what Lee's charged me.  I would just say to be patient; we had to go back and forth quite a few times to get it just right.  Also, make sure you are aware that they can start charging you a higher setup fee after a certain number of email communications.  They didn't do that to me, but I heard them talking about another job where the client (who was apparently a pretty big pain) ended up with something like $200 in setup fees!  Mine were just the standard fees - I think maybe $35 total.
