Extra folds (tri_fold is more expensive than bi_fold) incur higher per_invitation costs, as well as lining on the envelopes. The way in which invitations are printed play the biggest factor in the cost. Digital printing is the most budget_friendly option, then thermography, and then letterpress. The most expensive option is engraving. Outer envelopes, reply cards and envelopes are typically included in standard wedding invitations.
Consider different printing options: While letterpress is all the rage it can be an expensive process. Thermography is a modern alternative for attaining the raised printed effect of engraving and is generally half the price. This is achieved with a heat process which causes powdered ink to expand, resulting in a raised letter with a beautiful sheen. Flat or off_set or digital printing is a photo process resulting in a modern, sleek look. Generally this process is about the same price as thermography, but with digital printing you can print multiple colors at no additional coast. For those looking for a more matte or contemporary feel, flat_printing may be the alternative you are looking for. It also works well for reproducing photograph half_tones, sketches and maps.
