I am not very knowledgeable in the DIY invitation area. I would like to order my paper and pocketfolds from cardsandpockets or paperandmore. After that I need help!
I have created the attached Invite, Info card, and an RSVP card (which is not attached) using a Microsoft template. Please give me your honest feedback!
My question is where do you recommend getting them printed. I have an Epson photo (inkjet) printer at home, but didn’t really love the results.
Thanks so much in advance!!

I’ve heard a lot of people use Kinkos and have great results :).

i think either kinkos or like staples you can print them out for a decent price..

Side note: My one piece of advice just looking at your mockup, is that they look like they may not be standard size.
Obviously you can cut paper, but envelopes (particularly if you have your heart set on a particular colour) are limited. I would find your envelopes, and design backward from there.
Don’t be like me and burst into tears trying to jam my too long reply cards into teeny tiny envelopes.
Back to your question: I’ve heard good things about Kinkos too.

I’d try a local print shop. I got a quote from a famliy owned print shop for WAY less than what kinko’s quoted me at. And I think you’d get more personal assistance that way too…the shop gave me tips on formatting so that nothing would get cut off and they’d even help me edit if we needed to.

@SaphireSun – What is the standard size? (I’m really new to this)
I ordered a sample pocketfold/invitation from CardsandPockets and used those measurements.. Could it have uploaded a little different or maybe I need to double check what size I have it at.
@MissZigZag – How did you find the local printshop? Did you google something specific, find it through word of mouth, or did you just know about it?
Thanks for the help and suggestions ladies!

@Gilde37: If you ordered them from cardsandpockets they will sell the cooridinating size envelope so you should be in the clear
I googled it and found a ton and the local folks made me one so that I could decide who had the best stuff for the lowest price.

i used staples for my save the dates — they were cheaper than kinkos and office depot. call around, the quality is pretty much the same everywhere. all of the local shops around me cost 3x more, but it’s worth asking!

We are planning on using Catprint. We used them to print our Save the Dates, and we loved them. We going to have them print the RSVP cards, rehearsal dinner cards, and later on the programs and menus.
I also requested (before I even knew what the invites would be like) a wedding samples package. It shows some paper examples, so you can feel the different weights, colors and quality of the prints. I would recommend them!
