I have been looking at invitations for what seems like forever and have decided I want to stay on the cheaper side..Soo I was thinking of getting some from Michael’s and printing them myself! I am just worried they won’t turn out well, or that it is going to be a major pain! Anyone print their own invites for Michael’s?! Please share your thoughts!!

A friend of mine did and they were really cute. She got them with a coupon and they were so cheap she ended up getting a second box in case of mistakes. She didn’t need them so she returned them.

I didn’t use Michaels, but I did order DIY stationery from http://www.cardsandpockets.com and printed my own. Here’s a picture (sorry, the lighting isn’t good so the colors aren’t true, but you get the idea):
The most important thing is whether you or someone you know is at least a little bit talented in design and typesetting. My sister is a graphic designer, so she designed mine based on inspiration pictures I gave her, plus I supplied the exact wording I wanted.

We did, and they were PERFECT. With coupons I got out of a bridal magazine, we only paid $40 for two boxes of invitations (60 invites).
I’d heard a lot of bad stuff about trying to print them yourself, so we used the templates provided, and took ours to Kinko’s/FedEx. They printed the invitations for less than $60. So, all in all, we paid just under $100 for 60 invitations. It worked out really well, and a lot of our guests complimented us on the invitations, and were surprised to hear they were semi-DIY.
