paper for invites

Mon Aug 20, 2012 10:51 pm

My invites will require at least 2 A4 pages each

Can anyone reccommend a cheap supplier? I live in Adelaide but I am happy to purchase online

Try these guys.
They are by far the cheapest and I use them for my invitation business. Also it only takes one week to get here, unlike some items from the UK

I went to Officeworks and bought 6 packets of Linenbond paper. It was about $7.00 per packet. They have all different types.

Oh oh I bought mine online from paperpalace or paper..something. They are based in Australia, Victoria maybe, and were great! I was skeptical at first but the paper arrived within a week and got thick metallic whit paper/card for 40 or 50c each. Half the price of the local art shops. Office works didn't have the colour or type I wanted.
Did you already buy the paper?

Just went into the other room and found the pack- I wasn't close!
It's called Discount Wedding Papers (http://www.discountweddingpapers.com.au) and was 0.55c for a sheet of A4 'Ice Gold Card 250gsm'. We also needed matching A5 envelopes which were 1.06 each. They gave me 5 extra for free :)

The ice gold we got is a metallic type white. It's gorgeous! The paper was bubble wrapped etc. only downfall was it was $18 postage. It was nearly a ream worth of paper though.

Another option is to buy a large sheet of paper/card. Depending on your printer, you can get some slightly thicker paper (say, 120gsm), which is still flexible and soft or textured, but comes in a big sheet. For some of the invitations I have done, I found this to be a cheaper options because you cut it to size yourself and print away.
Most stationery places, including Officeworks, Newsagents and craft shops such as Eckerlys and RiotArt stock larger sheets that are textured as well.
Good luck!
