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.
Develop a secret code for replies: Some people are so excited to send their reply card back that they forget to write their name on it or their writing is illegible. A great fix is to number your reply cards so that when someone rsvp's with no name you'll know who it is. The most discreet way to do this is to write a small number in pencil on the backside of the rsvp card and keep a corresponding list of guest names and numbers so you can check them off as you receive them. You may be surprised at how many guests forget to write their own names on the rsvp cards!
