Inexpensive invitations?

I need to get some invitations printed for a shower I'm throwing. It looks like Tiny Prints is the cheapest, but still pricier than I expected for 15 invitations (~$40). Is there a website that does them for less?

Re: Inexpensive invitations?

Do they have to be printed? I always make my own for a heck of a lot cheaper than that! With all the scrapbooking paper options (I go to Hobby Lobby), the opportunities are virtually endless! Even if you were to buy a stamp and pad, it'd be cheaper.

I always buy cute card stock and have it printed at home or an office supply store. It never costs more than $10/dozen and always look cute.

Can you print them (4 to a sheet) using your home printer, then glue them to card stock that has a cute theme? JoAnns has nice colored cards with matching envelopes for $3.99 a pack (10 or 12 in each pack). I usually buy the solid cards and do a cute themed thing on the front, then print the party details on my computer and glue them to the inside.

MichelleM on here made me beautiful cards. I told her they were prettier than most wedding invites. Ask her if she can do something for you.

Re: Inexpensive invitations?

Normally I make shower ones 2 to a sheet of nice paper and print them. Last kids birthday I did a 4 by 6 size and printed them as photos at Walmart or Costco(.19 each?) and bought special envelopes ($8 for a bunch, maybe 50).
