- Cream card stock from Paper Source. $5.75 for a pack of 25 cards. Frankly, I wished this card stock was heavier, but, oh well.
- I thought the Paper Source envelopes were overpriced. I got blue A7 envelopes from LCI paper for $13.50 for a 50 pack. I was very pleased.
- David really wanted to do cool wrap around labels. I really wanted to not hand write 85 addresses. It all worked out. The only problem: I was not willing to pay the price for cute labels. No way. What did we do? We bought labels from office depot, and printed them with a design. Zip-zap, done.
- Cool stamps. From the post office. I toyed with vintage stamps for about two minutes, until I realized what they would cost, and what a pain they were to find.
- Printer ink: in this case it was free, but for those who were wondering, we used one set of ink cartridges for the project.
- Vintage map – we found the image online.
All in? If you count ink, stamps and everything, it cost us somewhere between $1.50-$2.00 per Save The Date. We would have gotten off cheaper with Vista Print postcards, but this way we got to put together exactly what we wanted, and for us that was worth it.
