Invitations

So I am not a DIY kinda person. I barely can cut in a straight line.I found a person who can do invitations, calligraphy, place cards programs, menus and such for me.Would anyone mind sharing what they paid for their invitations?Thanks so much

    check with your venue as well about some of that--my venue prints menus for us and they supply the place cards as well (we have to fill them out).And for invites, if you don't mind each piece not matching (for example, direction cards) the venues sometimes have that too...most hotels will also supply info cards for you

    I paid about $3.50 per invite but I had a lot of extras in there and it was awhile ago. I used Jar of Ideas.

    I paid $5 per invite.I paid $2.75 for my menu/escort cards.  They were combined together.I made my own programs and printed all of the envelopes from my computer, so I didn't get a calligrapherOverall I think I spent about $750.

      I paid ~5 per invite but had my SIL do the progs, place cards and menus. Staples does cutting so you could print out the stuff and have them professionally cut them for you.  As for calligraphy I downloaded a fancy font online and printed using my computer.

    My invites came out to about $475. That included the invite, reception card, response card and envelope and inner and outer envelope. I also had our name printed on the rsvp envelopes. I did the outer and inner envelopes at home myself.

    $5.10 per invite for pocketfolds. Venue supplied placecards and menus. I printed programs myself.

    We got a little creative and paid about $3.00 for each invite.  we printed out our own direction and hotel information cards on card stock from Staples.  Unfortunately, my mind is running a blank on what site we used for the invites so I'll come back and let you know in a little while.  I think the programs and menus we're just going to print out on card stock with the help of the fiance's brother designing them (yay graphic arts major!)

    It came out to a little over $9/invite. I am probably using venue place cards. Menu's will cost 1.50 each.
