If they look good, I'll order 50 more & have all the invites I need. 50 more will be about $26 shipped. So a total of $35 for 70 invites (50 cents each). As long as card stock isn't over $5, I'll be under 60 cents per invite. Yay!
DIY also saved me the expense of the excess 30 invites I would have ended up with if I ordered the 100 minimum from most of the places I looked.
Thanks everyone for helping me save money & make invites that I'm really excited about. I started this thread saying I didn't really care about invitations. Now, I love my invites!

I'll have to buy some 4x8 size envelopes. That's fine though because the vista print ones were nothing fancy. They are pretty thin. I'm really happy with how they turned out. Thanks again everyone who helped design my invites!
they look really great, Morgan

Here is what I spent:
$42 80 invites + 100 postcard inserts (vistaprint)
$3 140 return address labels (vistaprint)
$17 100 Astrobrites Lunar blue envelopes (envelopesexpress.com)
$10 card stock (AC Moore, but I recommend getting astrobrites at an office store instead)
$72 grand total
Cost per invitation= 90 cents
I’ll spend about $30 on stamps.
I planned to spend less, but I’m happy with the price. I had fun making them & I’m excited to send them to my guests. I didn’t plan on getting $17 envelopes, but I really wanted them to match my paper. The invites also came with envelopes, but they didn’t fit once I added the card stock. They were also cheap looking.
I have a lot of card stock leftover to use for my program fans. So really, the total cost is a little less. I also have enough envelopes to mail my pre-wedding letters.
Out of the 80 invites I ordered, only one was printed poorly.
Two friends are going to calligraphy the addresses next weekend & then they ship out!
