I used coprinted for my STDs and was wondering if there are other sites like coprinted where I can design my own invites, response cards, and such then print them at home or send them out to be printed? I’ve seen some pdf templates on Etsy but I’d really like to have more control over designing.
Thank you for any help

lovelymuse: I’m not familiar with coprinted, but Adobe offers a free 30 day trial on some of their design software (i.e. photoshop). I designed everything on photoshop and InDesign, and I think the cost to use these after the 30 day trial is $10-$15/month (not 100% sure on that though).

Thank you for your input. I’ll look into Adobe. I have Paint Shop Pro but it’s an old version.

I’m a full-time Graphic Designer, and I strongly suggest getting trial versions of Photoshop and/or Illustrator if you want to have a lot of control over what your print material looks like. Just be very careful when printing things with text from Photoshop–it can be finnicky.
Adobe now offers the Creative Cloud, which allows you to access all of their programs for a monthly fee if you want to continue after a trial period. I think you can get a singular program for $20 a month (like Photoshop), but if you want more than that it’s more like $40 or $50.

Hello there lovelymuse. Thank you so much for using our service. We are constantly adding new designs to our website and we’re also working on new features to give our users more control over their designs.
You may also want to give http://pixlr.com/ a try. It’s completely free, although the print resolution is much lower then what coPrinted or any Adobe suite offers.
