I found that cardsand pockets are wonderful and they have great prices for a DIY invite- the Perfetto is a 6×6 square like you described   check it out http://www.cardsandpockets.com

http://www.paperandmore.com also is very similar and has a 6 1/4 inch square himalaya. (it is less than $1 per card- I love them also!

 

hope this helps!  I don’t know about the mailing situation- but square costs more per stamp- I was going to go with square, but found I would save lots going with rectangle…the budget speaks 🙂

I agree, cards and pockets is the way to go! Square does cost much more, so if you can change yours to rectangle, you will see a great cost savings!

Pocketfolds can not be mailed without an envelope, because they are likely to dismantle in the mail.  Without an envelope, they would not look as nice by the time they reach your guests either.  If you have a 6 inch square pocketfold, just look for a single 6 1/4 inch square envelope to put it in, and it will go through the mail just fine!  StephanieMarie makes a good point though, square invitations require extra postage, so you may consider switching to a rectangular pocketfold if this is a concern for you.

I used paperandmore.com and really liked them. Also, for the enveloped they had some discontinued linen colors that were super cheap!

I got all my pocketfolds at envelopperinc.com (free shipping) and some extra needed paper at paperpresentations.com (though I purchased at the store since I live in NYC).  I went with 6×6 and loved how they turned out.  If you need any help with sizing, etc., feel free to PM me.

It will cost extra to mail, but it’s worth it.  I paid 84 cents per envelope and then I got all the invitations hand-canceled so it wouldn’t go through the machine (post office will do the first 50 free; I had an additional 22 which cost $1.60).  You will need the envelopes to mail.  Paperpresentations is currently selling natural white (and a few other) for $6.50 for 250 envelopes; in the grand scheme, the costs for envelopes is minimal. 

If you want to save on money/costs, if you are using white or off-white color for your invite and inserts, buy at Staples or other place, and either cut them all yourself or pay to have them cut (PP only charged me $2 per cut; I did this for a few, but for the most part FI cut everything and did a great job).  We sent out the invites last Friday and just about everyone got it by Tuesday (some a lot earlier) and we got nothing but raves.  It’s totally worth if it you decide to do it.  GL.
