- Wedding: June 2012
Everyone is doing pocketfold invites, and no matter how hard I tried to design something unique, pocketfolds are just classy and professional looking.
I used all the regular vendors:
- http://www.cardsandpockets.com/ for the black pocketfolds (110 at $0.69 each)
- http://www.envelopemall.com/detail.aspx?ID=50 for the sunburst yellow A7 envelopes (~$12 for 100 envelopes). I forgot to take pictures of the envelopes, sorry! I used a small sticker to seal the envelopes. The addresses were printed on sticker paper in a border (clipart from Word). After cutting out each address, a simple patterned corner cutter was used to jazz it up.
- http://www.envelopments.com/productsandservices/colors/patterns/318/Brocade.aspx for the patterned yellow paper called “Classic White – BRO04” but the paper has to be purchased from a carrier. I used an online vendor http://www.envelopme.com/blank-cardstock.php and purchased 5″x7″ sheets (100 at $0.71). They are actually 5.125″x7.125″ and had to be cut down. I also bought 20 regular 8.5″x11″ sized sheets ($0.54) for belly bands
- Fleur de Lis patterned border cutter was from Michael’s and was ~$15. I used it for about half the invites until it broke. It was quite a task to use with the thick pocketfold cardstock.
- Postcard reply cards were printed via a special deal with vistaprint (100 cards for $30) and the emblem on the front was a free template from http://www.weddingchicks.com/freebies/
- The fonts used for the invitation were downloaded for free from http://www.dafont.com and are called Foglihten and Chopin Script.
I designed the emblem on the belly band as well as the “S” sticker to seal the envelopes.
That should about cover it. I would estimate that I spent $250 on 110 invites.
