Wedding Wednesday: Custom Invitations Without the Custom Price
Our wedding invitations were another labour of love and cost savings. We ordered a digital custom design from YellowBrickGraphics on Etsy and had them printed at a local PATH printing shop. The digital custom route is really affordable and great for brides inviting a ton of people because the more people you invite the cheaper the cost. We paid $35 for our design, and were able to request custom colours from the designer. It's worth shopping the printing around- we saved with Path because they print on big sheets and then just cut the invitations to size. I purchased the Kraft paper envelopes from PaperGoodsSupplyShop on Etsy which is a local seller and was able to save the shipping by meeting the seller at a Starbucks. The return address envelopes were standard from Staples. I was lucky to get some cute heart stamps from Canada Post, but I understand you can now customize your stamps similar to the US.
I love how our invitations turned out, they fit our colour scheme with the wildflowers, and the kraft paper envelopes tied in with the Burlap on the tables.
