DIY invites

We are planning on doing our own invites. Can anyone recommend any good websites to order card and stuff from? I had a look on eBay already but it's hard to know what's good quality and what's rubbish

I just got card and envelopes for The Works and ribbon from eBay! The stamp was the most expensive at £12 but we’ve used it on everything 🙂

If your looking for a good quality thickness for your base card then anything from 200gsm to 300gsm is perfect. If you going to havens few layers on top of each other then anything from 120 gsm to 160gsm will work. Hope this helps x

We used vista print, if it's about saving money we got 20 ceremony invites with envelopes 30 reception invites, 30 a6 flyers for less that £50. Thought that was pretty good.

We went to Hobbycraft because we wanted to pick a card with texture rather than just plain. we printed ours and the card had to be max 250gsm to go through the printer but thats still plenty thick enough to be a quality thickness

We ordered ribbon and embellishments from eBay, but were disappointed with the card. We got the card from hobbycraft in the end xx

If you would rather see the products I would go to hobbycraft as they have a huge selection

Printed.com send a free example pack out worked ideal for me as I was fussy on the card I wanted to. You simply then just add a design and they send them out on your chosen card. 100% recommend.

I ordered from eBay but initially ordered a very small amount to check I was happy with the quality and play around with different designs. Then I did a bulk buy when I was happy.
