Depending on which company you go with, this is usually a more pricey option out of all of the ones I am going to share with you. It truly is depending on how much your invitations cost in the beginning plus how much you are needed to get shipped over to you. If your invitations do not cost too much having it shipped will not cost you too much in addition. This is a simple and easy choice that most couples go with. However, there are other ways that are also more convenient.

Do it yourself! We all own a printer or at least know someone who has a printer so why not print from home. If your invitations have the option to print at home you should really consider it. Not only does it save you on shipping, you have full control over your invitations. To lower the cost, even more, buy ink and blank invitations when they are on sale. For blank invites, one of my favorite stores Michael’s craft store has awesome buy one get one free deal from time to time. Keep an eye out.

Don’t be too shocked to see this option. Email is still one of the highest ways of communications.  We all still use it even though millennials may think this is ancient forms of technology. Even they check their emails! Be sure that when you are sending your invite to friends and family, that you have the correct email address. Also, inform them to check their emails because it may land in the awful spam section. You never know, so to be safe, make sure you let them know.  This is an extraordinary idea for those who want a paperless option to send their invitations.
