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.
If you would like custom or metallic ink colors, expect an additional 10% to the total order cost. Some companies may charge a flat rate of 50 cents per invitation when using any other color besides black ink. In the case that the envelope must be treated before the calligraphy is applied, expect a minimum of an additional 50 cents per envelope. This is often the case when the calligrapher works with paper that is shiny or difficult to write on.
