Rustic TYPOGRAHY Wedding Invites - Kraft LookFor my part in your wedding, I have created a stylish and unique selection of vintage wedding invitations that offer quality at a budget price. You can view my vintage selection here. Prices range from $0.61 per invite - LESS with sales and volume orders.

The invitations featured here have my lowest royalty - literally rock bottom, the system won't let me set it any lower. I did this to ensure you get the best deal available!
I created this low budget wedding selection especially for my Low Budget Wedding Group brides and grooms.
