What do wedding invitations cost?

We get lots of questions about pricing of wedding invitations. We have invitations in every price range! Below is an explanation of what you could expect at different price tiers for the invitations that we offer. Because each custom project is unique, a custom quote will be provided for you once we obtain the details of your specific needs. Most of the pricing guidelines below would be for a minimum of 100 quantity and do not include the cost of computer guest addressing or custom calligraphy. However we can quote those requests for you when we get more information about your project. Many factors like quantity and timing can also dramatically impact pricing structure, so please just use these prices as a general introductory guide.
Tier 1 invitations: starting at $2 per invitation
An invitation in our $2 and under price range would likely be a pre-designed creation on a nice card stock that is flat printed with a single envelope. To stay on budget you may need to have your return address hand-written instead of printed. If you need reply information, those cards are additional, but you can also print reply information, directions, and other details on the back of some of these styles for no additional cost. Our best priced designs for this option are on our web site at freshink.printswell.com, and our wedding value series are great options that start in this price range.
Tier 2 invitations: starting at $5 per invitation
A tier 2 set would typically include thermography or flat printing on a nice card, and a basic reply card can be added for an extra cost. You might have to do some leg work like hand-write your return address to stay at the bottom of this price tier. If double envelopes are important to you, we have options that include double envelopes in this price tier depending on your quantity. In this category you can add extras like unique stock upgrades and other touches for additional fees.
Tier 3 invitations: starting at $10 per invitation set
A tier 3 set would open the door to processes like thermography with upgrades, engraving, or letterpress from a brand you recognize like Crane or William Arthur, and depending on your quantity, the reply set may also be able to be included for that budget. Specialty stocks become available in this price tier. Double envelopes are often a part of invitations in this price tier, and invitations from Crane and William Arthur also do come with tissue which can be important to some customers.
Tier 4 invitations: $15 to $20 and up per invitation
A tier 4 invitation would open doors to more of our artisan letterpress printing processes like high-end letterpress and foil manufacturers, and premium treatments like envelope liners, edge treatments, and thicker card stocks, along with multiple enclosures and custom artwork design time. Quantity impacts per piece pricing considerably for this tier, along with custom upgrades that are requested.
