I create digital invitations for my kids' birthday parties, Gold Canyon parties, charity events, etc., then print them out as a photo! I get full color glossy invitations for about 10-20 cents each! You could even take it up a notch by affixing them to cardstock, but we just hand them out as-is.

Then I saved it and uploaded to Walgreens.com for printing (always search for an online coupon!) I picked them up an hour later!
Here are some other invitations that I've made this way:
