    I've decided on invitations for my sister's baby shower. I found a design on Etsy. Now, I just can't decided where to print them at. I do not want them glossy, so a photo place is out. I like the paper/cardstock ones better.
    I know I can run them somewhere like Staples on regular cardstock, but I don't want to have to cut them down to size.
    Basically, does anyone know where I can have them printed on either 4x6 or 5x7 cardstock?

    They are a bit pricy. If I can grab a Groupon, then I will use them. But regular, it will cost me $1.10 each. If I print at Staples and cut them down, it would be 25 cents each. Big difference :(

    Now, I know I will not get them to size for 25 cents each. I'm hoping to get down to the 75-80 range though.

    *sigh*

    I threw a cocktail party for dh bday a few years ago. I bought packs of nice card stock invitations at staples . They had gorgeous color selections and matching envelopes. I put thru my own printer. Came out awesome.

    A lot of the shipping stores do services like that too I think (UPS and Fedex both do for sure). Not sure what their pricing is like though! I've done just simple printing at the UPS store once and it wasn't too bad.

    I was also going to suggest buying your own card stock and printing them yourself.

    I've also printed shower invites myself. I bought beautiful invitations from Target. If you go that route, just make sure to get plenty of extra so you can have a few practice runs to get the template just right.
