It might depend on how many you need.

http://www.paperandmore.com/product/1700/aqua-lagoon-metallic-a7-petal-cards $37 for 50

http://www.paperandmore.com/product/3223/a7-bright-white-linen-cardstock-80lb-cover $10 for 100 (the cheapest)

http://www.paperandmore.com/product/4031/a1-bright-white-linen-cardstock-80lb-cover $6 for 100

Plus printing.. at Staples or something I think it’s 0.39 for one sided color printing? But it depends on your location.

baguirre0602:  I second Lovebug! I’d order from paper and more. You can order samples of each before you buy the bulk invites. The quality of their paper is great! You could always go to a kinkos or office store to have them print the insert for a better quality print job.

baguirre0602:  I’m not sure what the “paper sample” is. The paper in the picture just looks white to me.. so I gave the link for the cheapest white paper from the site. I would think it would print out of your printer just fine as it is only 80#. You can order only one sheet for <$1 to see it first though.

You could also save some money by not buying the A1 paper – but instead using your leftover A7 paper cut in half for the RSVPs. That would put your costs at $0.94/invitation versus the $7/invite on etsy.

Staples also sells this type of invitation in packs of 25 (I think) they come in colors and metallics also. I’ve used this design for my sons high school junior prom and printed on my home computer.
