In DIY Bride’s 10-year history, the two of most often-asked questions we receive from DIYers are “What type of paper should I use for my invitations?” and “Where can I find cheap card stock in bulk?”.  Since the majority of you gals and guys will be doing some sort of paper project like invitations, save-the-dates, table numbers, or escort cards, we’re always on the hunt for reputable sources for quality papers and card stock to share with you. Today I am absolutely thrilled to introduce you to CutCardStock.com who’ll make your paper crafting life oh-so-much easier.

CutCardStock.com has one of the best selections of invitation-ready card stock and paper online, offering a rainbow of colors in both full-sheet and pre-cut pieces. They stock everything from the sheerest vellums to luxury 100% letterpress-ready cottons so you’re sure to find the perfect paper for your printer. Not sure what paper is going to work for you? No problem! CutCardStock.com will send you 3 samples of your choice (just pay shipping) so you can test them out before you buy. Pretty sweet, right?

What makes CutCardStock.com really stand out is the extra services they offer. They’ll cut, score, drill holes, or round corners of any of their papers for you which, truly, is a time and sanity saver when you’re making 200 programs or 150 layered and eyelet-bound invitations. They also have ribbon and adhesives to make your shopping experience ridiculously convenient.

Even better? They charge a flat-rate $5.00 for shipping for orders over $49.00. By comparison: I  paid $26.00 for standard shipping on a small order from an unnamed paper company last year. $5.00 is an absolute steal, y’all.

I was lucky to receive a sampling of CutCardStock.com‘s products and was perfectly pleased with the textures, weights, and printability.

With a sample of Cougar Embossed Panel Invitations (Size A-7), I made this simple modern invitation just using my trusty Canon all-in-one printer. A pack of 50 panel invitations is $7.50 — a mere $0.15 each!

A little more advanced – but still ridiculously easy – is this layered gate-fold invitation using:

  • Basis A-7 Gatefold in Aqua, $9.95 for 25
  • 2 pieces Esse Pearlized A-7 card stock in Latte, $6.75 for 25
  • 1 piece of Basis Aqua card stock, $6.65 for 25
  • 1 Esse Smooth Envelopes, $7.95 for 25

Breaking down the cost of this invitation (0.39 + 0.54 + 0.26 + 0.31) = $1.50!

So, how’s the quality? Excellent. CutCardStock.com offers many papers and card stocks from the top paper mills like Crane & Co., Mohawk, and Neenah – the same companies that professional stationers use in their own designs.

Whatever your card stock needs – textured or smooth, matte or metallic, lightweight or heavy, colorful or monochrome – please consider  CutCardStock.com as your go-to source. I think you’ll love them as much as I do!

  1. Will you be doing a tutorial on the blue invitation? And can you tell me how you got to the $1.50 price? I’m not understanding your breakdown.

    • Hi Rachelle, I’d be happy to do both!

      As for the break down, here it is:

    • Basis A-7 Gatefold in Aqua, $9.95 for 25. That’s $0.39 each. I used one.
    • 2 pieces Esse Pearlized A-7 card stock in Latte, $6.75 for 25. That’s $0.27 each. I used two, so that’s $0.54.
    • 1 piece of Basis Aqua card stock, $6.65 for 25. That’s $0.26 each.
    • 1 Esse Smooth Envelopes, $7.95 for 25
    • . That’s $0.31.

      Breaking down the cost of this invitation (0.39 + 0.54 + 0.26 + 0.31) = $1.50!
