You could just use your home printer to make some - there are lots of nice types of paper out there and printers today are pretty snazzy at printing onto a lot of different substances.

you could also try stamps - particularly those large Indian woodblock stamps that were originally used to stamp fabrics, they often have very intricate patterns, or larger pictures of animals and flowers on them...

Most craft stores have invitations and envelopes in bags of 50 for dirt cheap.  They're usually around $10, but sometimes our Michael's puts them on sale for $5.  I got lucky on one of those sales when I was doing my sister-in-law's invites last month.  I made hers using white cardstock invites (I think they're 5" wide by 6" tall when folded) that I printed on my work computer (it's a laser printer so the ink looks better than my inkjet at home).  On the front I affixed a rectangle of lavender mulberry paper, through which I punched two holes with a very tiny hole punch and tied a bow of thin organza ribbon.  On top of the mulberry paper, I put a little embossed picture of a wedding cake.  I made the embossed pictures using white cardstock and brass embossing stencils.  They turned out to be very informal, but way cute.  If I can think of it, I'll take a picture.

how cheap do you consider cheap?
there are some good printing options online!
if you're doing a big quantity, offset printing looks really nice, and is done on a per color pricing system.  (you can get 1 color, 2 color, 3 color or - 4 color is full color)
awesome paper companies:
neenah papers
french paper
and on the more expensive end/meant for wedding invites-ish/pretty papers is the paper source http://www.paper-source.com
hope this helps!

I got mine at crane on sale and used velum from staples of all places, but I agree that Paper Source is the almighty when it comes to paper for weddings. I didn't know about it when I got married or I would of got everything there. They even have these print outs you can get online or in store that tell you how to make different types of invitations and what papers you would need.

i'd like to see a picture.  I'm not getting married anytime soon but it's still nice to look.  Smiley

does anyone know where i could get wedding invites on great non-kinkos paper for cheap?Huh?

I just did bridal shower invites for a friend of mine.

I bought some packages of these cute, blank, scalloped cards from Paper Source.  Then designed what I wanted them to say in Illustrator and ran each card through my inkjet.  Then I used a flower hole punch and cut flowers out of construction paper and glued them on.

I included an insert in each envelope with the extra info like directions, where she's registered, etc.  I printed these like 6 to a sheet and then made black & white copies on colored paper and cut the paper myself.  Kinkos locations usually have heavy duty paper cutters you can use.

I'm lucky enough to have a Paper Source store right near me but they have a website here: http://www.paper-source.com  They have such great blank cards, envelopes, etc.



sorry to have been such a dork as to blur out the the info but it's a surprise shower and my friend is a super sleuth at figuring these things out!
