Creating Affordable Wedding Invitations

Creating Affordable Wedding Invitations
By Alanna Ritchie February 15, 2019
There’s nothing quite like the shock that comes with learning about each new wedding expense. Researching wedding invitations options, one of the early nuptial planning priorities, is no exception. Professionally made invitations can easily become a major expense.

Shutterfly estimates that couples pay $400 to $650 on average for their wedding invitations. Some sites offer simple designs at around $1 per invitation. And according to the popular wedding site, couples spend an average of $1,000 on invitations for big budget weddings.

To help cut back on these high costs, many budget brides are opting for DIY wedding invitations. But there is still the question of how DIY to go. Writing wedding details on card after card requires patience, precision, and artistic ability. It can quickly become painstaking. Instead of pouring over the tiny letters for the time, date, and location details, consider expediting the process with a simple stamp.

Our designers labored to create beautiful invitation stamps – which mean less work for you. Our stamps are customized to include the essential wedding details.

Making your invitation stamp on our website is easy. Simply enter your invitations for the big day in the fields when you order the stamp. The custom fields may include information such names, day, date and year of the wedding, ceremony time, location, and an RSVP email. Each stamp includes different text and details.

Whimsical Wedding Invitation Stamp

Just Add Ink & Paper

Your stamp imprint will be 4 X 6 inches. Your wedding stamp does not include an ink pad. However, we do sell 5” X 7” ink pads, which can be used for your stamp, on our site. Blue, black and red ink colors are available. You can also order quality ink from other vendors to use with your rubber stamp.

Lastly, along with postage, you’ll need paper to stamp your design on. We give our shoppers the chance to buy paper elsewhere, which keeps our cost at the al la carte stamp price, rather than offering expensive invitation packages.

Formal Ornate Wedding Invitation Stamp

Give your invitation a unique feel by choosing the color and type of paper for your invitation. From cost-effective options like parchment or linen to Vellum layered materials and cotton fiber, you make this invite your own. You can even opt for an environmentally-friendly choice and go for recycled paper. Amazon sells many affordable invitation packets and Target even has 8.5” x 5.5” blank note cards with envelopes in sets of 50 for $9.99.

Just make sure you figure in the cost of postage as you plan invitations and consider RSVP card inclusions.
