The girl who created my invitations took them to Office Depot to have the paper cut because she is super persnickety about straight lines. And I believe they are probably cheaper than Kinkos so you might want to check into that. Please spend the money to have them professionally cut. It’s just one more task that if you don’t have to worry about it, then don’t. I was doing my programs at the last minute (so me and bridesmaids were cutting with papercutters), and even with the help, it was still tedious. If it wasn’t the 9th hour, I would have dropped them off at Office Depot with a quickness – please believe it!

It turned out well. What we did was we created a paper template first with the lines and gave it to them. They used it as a template to cut it and it turned out very well. But be aware. Kinko charges well over a dollar per cut. So in order to save money make sure to do your outline well and avoid additional cuts.

I used Kinkos here in CA and it turned out great.  I had heavy cardstock and all the cuts were clean. I would agree w/the girl above to have a template w/the lines on it for them to use as a guide on the cut.  The price in CA was $1.50/cut.

We also had our stationary cut at Kinkos…and wanted to clarify what was written above – it’s $1.50 a cut, which can be through a stack of cardstock – not one cut per sheet.

In my experience Kinkos can be very hit and miss. If you do go with them make sure your prints have crop marks and a bleed rather than an outline. (crop mark are little cross hairs at each corner showing where to cut. a bleed is when you extend the art, graphics or color beyond the edges of the cut line so if they are off a fraction there will not be a white line showing.)
