Printing with Cards and Pockets

Hi girls! Just wanted to thank everyone who has helped me so much with the invitations-- as well as all my other questions the last 2 years :) 

HOLY PRINTING CHARGES! More then 400 dollars! 
I was totally blown away! Any money saving tips/ideas????

    You've been like three steps ahead of me (I'm SO BEHIND ON INVITATION) but I've been learning from your posts b/c I'm using Cards & Pockets too...  this one scares me!!

    So how much do you think you will have spent, total, when all is said and done?  (Sorry this doesn't answer your question at all)

    Vanessa-

    I really want to get the invitations out March 24th- that will be exactly 3 months- we have about 75% of our invitees coming out of state.

    I need 160 invitations. The cost of invitations, invitation mats, mailing envelops, and rsvp envelops came to $235.00. I've ordered them already from c&p.

    To order the paper for printing through them- which I'm probably going to do since I'm not paying THAT much for someone to print it- is $170. That would be for 175 invitations, and enough for 4 enclosure cards per invitation. Thinking about printing at home.

    Incidental costs include- address stamp ordered from esty- $20, ink pad, swatches from c&p to determine best colors- $15, cost for someone to design invitations for me from esty. 

    Hope that helps :)
