My fiance and I are loving some of the Etsy designs for wedding invitations. We are definitely budget-conscious, but don’t want the invitations to look cheap. Therefore, we are a bit hesitant about going that route because we don’t actually know how to go about printing them and still maintain the quality of an elegant invitation. We want an invitation that has a solid background color, so the printing quality will need to be strong.
Does anyone have any experience with Etsy PDF wedding files that they had printed? Where did you get them printed? How was the quality? Cutting? Etc…Please help!

you can have then printed by a professional printer/copy company like Kinkos or something local.

Cards and Pockets
I’ve never gotten anything printed from them but I’ve heard generally positive things and I know that Cards and Pockets has great customer service if you want to call and talk to a rep

I ordered invitations from etsy that I printed out myself. Because I was concerned about the amount of ink involved in printing one of those image rich invitations, I chose this one (excpet the silver background on mine is yellow) : http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35698673
I then ordered nice paper from http://www.envelopemall.com so that the invitation would have a nice background. I chose quartz paper with amethyst envelopes.
Next, I asked the lady I was buying from if she could print the invitations 2 to a page. When the PDF file was ready, I printed from work (shh!!) and took the paper cutter home (SHH!!) to cut the invitations. I really didnt have to make more cuts than maybe 3 per page, once in half, once on the top, and one along the edge. It really wasnt hard cutting since I had the paper cutter.
I would definitely reccomend this to you! We spent $22 on PDFs for thank you card, info insert, and invitation, about $70 on paper and envelopes (1 set for thank you cards and another for invitations), and maybe $30 on postage and labels and such. The paper and envelopes come 100/pack, so it was worth it!

I bought invites off of Printable Press, they sent me a PDF, and because of the amount of ink used, I felt more comfortable using a printing company vs printing them ourselves. I used CatPrint and was really happy with the quality of my invites and the service. I’d definitely recommend using them.
