“Love the look of let­ter­press but not the price? Splurge on it for the main in­vi­ta­tion and save with flat print­ing for in­sert cards.” – Court­ney Jentzen, il­lus­tra­tor and de­signer


“Use a coloured outer en­ve­lope in­stead of an en­ve­lope liner. You’ll pay way less per in­vi­ta­tion, plus it’s a fun sur­prise.” – Cheree Berry, cus­tom sta­tionery de­signer


“If you like thick pa­per, cut costs by us­ing two-ply for the in­vi­ta­tion and one-ply for in­sert cards.” – Erica Hen­rik­sen, mar­ket­ing man­ager


“Use one in­sert that di­rects guests to your wed­ding web­site in­stead of mul­ti­ple cards for lo­gis­tics like ac­com­mo­da­tion and di­rec­tions.” – Erica Hen­rik­sen


“Sta­tion­ers charge you for en­ve­lope ad­dress­ing, assem­bly and mail­ing. Don’t be afraid to DIY; just spread the work out over a few days.” – Court­ney Jentzen


“Re­place the tra­di­tional re­ply card with an RSVP post­card to cut costs on both print­ing and postage.” – Mariam Naficy, founder of a de­sign com­pany


“De­sign a seat­ing chart poster in­stead of per­sonal es­cort cards.” – Court­ney Jentzen


“Opt for one menu card per ta­ble to re­duce print­ing costs. Dis­play the menu in an in­ex­pen­sive frame that gets guests talk­ing.” – Brooke Kee­gan, events plan­ner


“Print a cer­e­mony pro­gramme per cou­ple in­stead per guest.” – Sara Fay Egan, events plan­ner


“Or­der menus, in­vi­ta­tions and pro­grammes at the same time to cut print­ing fees.” – Cheree Berry
