I know its been awhile since you did these, so I'm hoping that you might still answer my question....How much did these cost?  I LOVE them, they are beautiful, but if I'm going to go to all this trouble, time and effort, I want to know what they cost to make.  I noticed several posts ask the question....but where's the answer?

I absolutely loved this invitation. I ordered a sample not long after I saw this. For 200 invitations, mine are cosing me slightly under $500--which beats paying someone to do them for approximately $950. I will definitely be using these for my wedding! Cards and Pockets has so many different color choices to choose from! Thanks!

i got an email from vistaprint for free postcards, so tried to figure out how to use the postcards in a pocket fold. you can print have the postcards printed without anything on the back, so they'd work.  the coupon is for 100 standard postcards or 50 oversized postcards.


you can only one free postcard offer per purchase. so for the stuff below, you'd have to make 3 seperate orders (with three different email addresses) to get everything you  need for 100 invitations.


i figured i could use one of the oversized postcards (8.5 x 5.47) and cut it to make a 5.47 x 5.47 invitation and a 5.47 x 3.3 insert (reception info, directions). Then, use a standard postcard for the RSVP (use the standard postcard back with our address for guests to reply)


(It's going to take some serious design work to get everything to look the way i want to do for the oversized postcard/insert. I plan on doing all of the design work in PowerPoint.)


So, for 100 invitations, i'd need 100 oversized postcards and 100 standard postcards. shipping is $6.40 per order, so total costs for invitations and inserts: $19.20.


cost for 100 6x6 pocketfolds and 100 6x6 envelopes from cards&pockets (including shipping): $97.80


so, after some ribbon and some print at home stickers to close the pocketfold, i think i can get 100 invitations for $135 or so.


Postage for RSVP envelopes (@.28 each): $28


Postage for Invitation (@.75 each): $75


Cost for 100 invitations, rsvp & postage: $238

This is wonderful... I think I'm going to take advantage of Vistaprint offers using a homemade digital design (using illustrator) and getting the envelopes and pockets from an online store perhaps (maybe cardsandpockets.com ?).
