Choose a size that is cost effective and will allow you to get the most cuts out of a sheet of paper without a lot of paper waste.
Print the pieces of the invitations at home on a nice color printer which will allow you to add color to the invitations without having to pay a lot for color prints from a professional printer.
Take stacks of paper to a place like Kinko’s or Office Depot that can cut through a whole stack of paper at once.
My invites were made by using two sheets of red paper per invitation. One sheet was scored like a gatefold. The other was scored in half with a triangle cut out from one side. This piece was then glued to the right side flap of the first piece to create a pocket.
I designed the pieces in the pocket so the were each 1/2 inch wider so they would stack and the titles on each card could be read.
I created a band with a circle that had the wedding date on it which slid over the invitation to keep it shut and flat.
