Hi Ladies,

I am thinking of DIY stuff, but that gets expensive too. Does anyone have a ballpark estimate for how much would I spend per DIY invite vs. professional?

Thanks!

I made boarding pass invites. For 25 I spent $35. Cardstock is cheap so it's really only the cost of your ink and extras if needed (ribbon, stamps, charms, etc).

I paid $7 per boarding pass invite and they were ready in one week. In super happy with them, so although it was a splurge, it's one area I wanted to. I totally think I'm going to DIY the rest of my own stationary though. I think all in, it'll be about $100 for supplies, which is waaaaay lower then the quote for everything I want. Now I just have to get moving on it

@@SwissWedding it can get expensive if you want. I made our invitations and total with supplies and everything I paid around $50 for 40 of them. I sent them to get printed at Staples because none of my printers were good enough and they ended up looking really cheap.  Also, if you live in the States you can probably get it done for less. Everything in Canada is a bit more of a rip off and things are harder to find haha. This is how they turned out.

Just places my amazon order last night! I had to do a ton of tweeting since it was going to come in 12 shipments and you pay per piece at the border. I will be going in 7-10 days to pick it all up! Yay!

Unless I find them for cheap, I will be DIY just about everything but my invites. (I did my own STD's which were VERY time consuming, a lot of small details. So for invites, I am just going to buy them off a website. And to save money I will probably DIY everything else!)

I did boarding pass ones, and they were about 3/each with shipping (70 cent stamps). I made 50+ - they actually got cheaper as I made more due to spreading out material costs lol.

They were time intensive, though, so if you can get them done for less...do it!
