PocketFold invitations

I am really not a crafty person but I want to make pocket fold invitations to save money. I was wondering if I order the pocketfolds from cards and pockets can i order the invites from someplace else like wedding paper divas. Please help how can i do this? TIA

    I have pocketfolds too from C&P.  I don't have any tips for you but you might want to browse the DIY board for pocketfold ideas.  I don't really post so much as I look at ideas and planning bios to see what others are doing.

    You can order the pocketfolds from C&P but you'll have to check the dimensions of the invitations from wedding paper divas. Here's the sizing info [clicky] on C&P. Have you considered etsy? You may be able to custom order your invitations to the dimensions of the pocketfolds you order. HTH

    I had someone make my invites and her name is Alex Teabow (you can google her) she's amazing. I think she did SheShe invites as well. I think she charges $65 for a suite and then I just told her what size cards and pockets I was using and she just did my invites and insterts to that size.

    Also, if yougo to http://roadtotheaisle.blogspot.com/2008/03/diy-pocketfolds.html it's the blog of a DIY bride  about how she DIY alomst everything for her wedding including making the pockets.

    You could also order the pockets from CP like you mentioned and then design your invitations and order from Zazzle.  They can custom a size for you.  I DIY"d my pocketfold invitations, but I measured and had Kinkos/Fedex Office cut mine, came out cheaper than paying 2 more vendors. 

    There are pics in my bio under DIY, the instructions are there too.

    Okay stupid question.  What is a suite?  I still need to get my invites done and I want to DIY them.

    I know what I want but just don't know where to find it.  Hoping I could stalk this post and get some ideas.  What I want is a pocket fold that is more like a book then an envelope.  You know what I mean? I just want it to close with no extra flap.  Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated. TIA

    Thanks for all the information I didn't even think about order the pocket folds and then order the invites in the correct size.
