What do wedding invitations cost?
Custom invitations will likely cost more than anything you purchase online from any of the major wedding invitation sites, but the experience and product will be very different. The “average cost of wedding invitations” in the US, as reported by most wedding websites, factors in minimally custom internet sales and DIY invitations you can purchase from office supply stores and print on your home computer. The average cost of truly custom wedding invitations, regardless of where you purchase them, will be roughly 5% of your overall wedding budget. We recommend budgeting somewhere between $15-$25 for custom wedding invitations.
Please also note there is a $1500 minimum purchase requirement on all wedding invitation orders, a $500 for Save the Date card orders, and $750 minimum for reception or “day of” items.
We are very sorry, but we do not discount our designs, or offer cash discounts.
A 50% deposit of the estimated cost of your stationery is requested at the time of order. You may cancel all or any portion of your your order any time before printing for a refund of your deposit less any proof fees incurred and a $500 design fee. Balances must be paid in full at the time of pick up. Payment methods include cash or check.
Paper & Posh has a $1000 minimum on all invitation design orders regardless of style, quality or quantity. We are sorry, but we cannot add stationery or products outside of the invitation design including save the dates or “day of items” to meet the $1000 minimum.
