Lord have mercy ladies!
I have a template from download&print. I got it several months ago when I first fell in love with it. Now that it’s time to hunker down and get the invitations going, I decided to start working on them. They have been a nightmare! I finally got the font and wording down that I wanted, but after printing a test run, I realized the spacing is completely off. The spacing issue isn’t due to any of my changes, rather it’s in the template! I wish I had realized this sooner. Not to mention I had to completely rework the RSVP detail page because part of the graphics weren’t even showing within the frame (and because it was part of the copyrighted graphic, I couldn’t fix it myself).
I’ve emailed the lady at the website three times now and I’m super frustrated. I have only read good reviews of this company before…is there anyone else out there hiding that’s experienced something like this? I’m almost eight weeks out with no invitations…

i too looked at down & print invites. i downloaded the sample and did a test print. the color didn’t look right and i didn’t want to fuss with the cutting and lining up. i thought about having them sent to a printer and cut but i thought about the cost so i decided to just order them from an invitation company. i have too many diy projects. i didn’t want my invites to look homemade. i’ve seen some really great ones on here but many bees have a graphic design background. i tried photoshop, indesign, and illustrator and i couldn’t figure out how to use any of the programs.

@Miss Biner: Oh no! I downloaded a template from that same place, and I could edit everything. Which template did you download? I might be able to help.

@malisa0607: The Adobe programs are very difficult to use if you don’t have any experience with them. There is a free vector program called Inkscape that is similar to Illustrator. I have posted a tutorial in the DIY section. There is a link to the free download, as well as a step by step process (with LOTS of images) showing how to do the basics. (Hope this helps!)

I’m going a little batty invitation wise too! I’m not sure how to do that and don’t know of the company.
I caved and just used vista print. Quick and affordable and I didn’t have to rely on my own technological savvy.

The version that I was sent had copyrighted images that couldn’t be moved. They were all word documents. In addition to my emailing them three times now, my mom emailed her last night as well. If I can’t get it resolved soon, I think I am going to have to look at Vistaprint or something else like that.
Admittedly, I’m not super computer savy, so it would be nice to have the fomatting and all done for me.
Wish me luck!
