    I bought gate folds from C&P and Envelopes. I bought packages of card stock from Michaels and printed them myself. The sample I made was great :) The quality from C&P is really good and so is their customer service ! HTH

    I ordered one of their sample kits and was very impressed at the quality and the metallic colors (I ordered gold). I definitely plan on using them when I do my own invitations. I'm not sure what route I'm taking yet with the printing, but I'll definitely post an "AW" once everything is all set and done to let everyone know how it went and my reviews. The girls over on the DIY board highly recommend this site for DIY pocketfold invites. HTH! :0)

    I just ordered a ton of samples from C&P.  The quality is great.  I got some of their custom printed patterned stock too which is really nice.  Supposedly their printing is top notch and very affordable... much less than doing a local printer.  They have a forum where people give advice on home printing and it sounds like there are some tricks to it with the metallic stock & inkjets, so you might want to read that.  Otherwise, I know lots of people that have printed themselves and it worked out fine.  C&P recently listed their printing prices on their site though, so you can actually see what their general printing cost is.

    Mandy, how did you print yours? Inkjet or laser?   I'm deciding whether to have C&P print mine or if I'll attempt to do it myself.

    I am ordering mine from there because I saw one of my friend's friend's invitations and she did them all herself with the C&P stuff and they came out beautifully. I would have thought she had them professionally done.
