I’ve been contemplating DIY STD’s and have toyed around with some designs on GIMP, but so far no luck. Did any of you bees make your own? If so, what websites did you use for inspiration? Also, is there a template you can use or something?
And this might sound dumb, but I’m very new to this DIY stuff. How exactly do you make them? Like, when it comes to printing them and stuff.
I’d love it if you shared yours with me to give me some inspiration!

Mine.. I used a template from http://www.weddingchicks.com just go to the downloads section. Heaps of templates there! I used microsoft publisher to add the extra wording 😀 I printed them on my home printer.

I think that msmonicka made her own as well and they were really pretty as well as cost-effective. She did them at wal-greens with pictures from her engagement shoot.

I printed mine myself, but if you decide to do the postcard route you can have an online printer do them (like Uprinting, Sonic Print, PrintPlace).
These are mine! The purple front had the green back, and vice-versa.

struggling with the same thing–labor of love how did you print those given the photos? did you use photopaper on your own printer, or go to a copyshop or use a website?

We ordered these from an etsy seller unlesssomeonelikeyou…they are scratch-off! She has a few other designs of scratch off STDS!
We put the date under the scratch off.
