Take a look at the paper section on the bee there are loads of people who have done just that.

You can even get free downloadables from weddingchicks.com and just take them to a cheap printing place or even try vista print.

I created our invitations in Photoshop, and printed them through Catprint. I wouldn’t have done it any other way… there was definitely a sense of pride and accomplishment after it was all said and done, lol.

willkayl:  I designed and printed mine myself..at home no less. Luckily though I have a printer that can print on heavy card stock.I dressed them up with a sewn outer jacket I made on my sewing machine. I think they came out nice. I just googled rustic invitation when I was thinking of DIY in the beginning..i found these beautiful burlap invitations and thought I could make something similar. I’m glad I did it myself, I saved a lot of money and they came out just how I wanted them to look.

I don’t know if you even really need a template. If you have Microsoft, try opening Publisher and playing around with different fonts, etc. I went on the hunt for free fonts from dafont.com and the like and found a bunch that I absolutely loved. From there, I played around with text boxes on Publisher until I found what I wanted. If you have photoshop you can probably add other elements a little better. I’m going to either have mine printed elsewhere or print them from home. It’s a little time consuming, but I feel such a sense of accomplishment from getting them done 🙂

brighteyedgirl:  I made my own in photoshop too!  What font did you use for the swirly title words on yours?   I am not sure I have a photo I can share at the moment because I’m at work.  Mine are much simpler than yours – yours are very elegant and nice!  That’s what I wanted, but I can’t afford it.  I bought paper in Toronto and my dad is printing ours at his work.  Hopefully it turns out ok… I don’t really know what I’m doing!

MrsPhilly:  Aw, thank you! And don’t go knocking your invites… I’m sure they’re just as nice, if not better! ;] Oh, and the swirly font is Burgues Script.

I started mine on photoshop too and saved it as a picture.  Then I went Micrsoft word, pasted how many could fit in one page and just cut them out.  i pasted each one on a special glitter silver heavy cardstock and it turned out better than I thought.

willkayl:  I’m a graphic designer so I did mine and printed through catprint! The quality was nice and you can also get envelopes through them so it was very easy

I’m a graphic designer, so I designed ours using Adobe Illustrator. They were printed at a local print shop, and I ordered pocketfolds and all of our envelopes from Cards & Pockets. It was a fun process for me.
