Make sure to use the test pages to check that everything lines up nicely! I was super obsessive about it, and just finished printing my RSVP cards this weekend.

And you still have a couple weeks before you need to get the invites in the mail. I’m sending mine right after 4th of July – so a little more than 8 weeks out. But I have lots of family from out of state that will be traveling.

Spend a lot of time designing the invite and other cards using the templates BEFORE printing.

You want them perfect before you print them.

Make sure when you go to print that you set the printer to the right printer size. Directions on the gartner website!

Do test runs to make sure you like them!

Only print a few at a time. Once I got the hang of it I think I printed 15 at one time as the printer was doing a good job of pulling one invite off the pile.

Make sure your ink levels are OK before starting

Good Luck

Those are the same ones I got.  This weekend I’m finalizing fonts and hoping to print next week.  What font(s) did you use?  I have such a hard time deciding.

I got those same ones in chocolate and cream.  I agree with the other posts, spend a lot of time testing the printing to make sure everything is aligned correctly.  I cut out paper the same shape as the invitations/reception cards and used those until I got it right.  Thank goodness I did, it took a good 5 tries or so before I got it perfect.  The invitations have since gone out and everyone keeps calling asking where I got them done and could I pass on the info…..funny!!  I think I have set myself up for assisting with my friends/families future invitations….

Hi there, I just got done doing these exact invitations. I’m not sure what font is on the box, but I used Californian FB for the wording on everything and our names on the invitation where in Monotype Corsiva.  Any questions on these let me know, I just finished them up and they turned out great!
