For fonts, go to dafont.com, all of theirs are free. You can search by theme (I would check retro or vintage for the playbill fonts). I know they have them, I’ve downloaded some before!

Yea! These should be easy!  The fonts I’ve downloaded from dafont before always work really well, and they’re free!  

I have kind of an older printer, so I ended up saving mine as a .jpg or .pdf, can’t remember, and taking them to Kinkos to get printed on the laser printer.

Also, I made ours 5 x 7s so that they would fit two invites per on standard sheet of 8.5 x 11 cardstock, and they only take one stamp.  I messed up on some DIY stuff earlier, so now I’m super anal about figuring out ALL the steps before even starting so I don’t waste money.

 

Good luck!

@Kings7911: Also, maybe my mistakes will help others:

I ordered postcards from vistaprint for the response cards because they’re cheaper for postage, and I don’t have to find envelopes.  However, I was a dummy and forgot that standard postcards come with a glossy finish. This means that people can only check “yes or no” in permanent marker instead of any old regular pen.  If I uploaded the image with the response part on the “back” and just had the address in black on the glossy “front” (or clicked Matte for that matter, lol), I could have avoided the whole problem. 

I realized nobody receiving these will care, so therefore I’m letting it go πŸ˜›
