I really want to save money and do my own pocketfolds. I have amazing printers at my work that I am able to use, but I am overwhelmed with designing the templates. i found this seller on Etsy who sells any premade template for $50, or if I want her to design a new one for me it will cost $100. What do you think – worth it? Or at that price, should I just pay for the entire invitation to be made (I found nice ones for $3.75 an invite)
How difficult are the templates to make ? I only have microsoft word on my computer! I’m just unsure where i can find the scrolls and designs to put on the invitations.

@JessicaDolly: oh! I’ve seen that photoshop brush!!!!!
You could always download Photoshop and play around with it. or, if you like, I could try doing something similar for you, no charge 🙂
Would you want everything listed there (like the matts) or just the invites and stuff? I’ve never done matts before, which is why I’m asking. You’d also have to tell me what you want it to say, kinda like what they have there…. so it’d be totally customized to you. 🙂
Otherwise, have you checked Michaels??? They have some good ones there and you get coupons from their newsletters and website.

@JessicaDolly: I’ve seen those too!
like on the inserts: http://photoshop-free-brushes.com/category/decorative/page/2
the first link has tons of awesome photoshop brushes. obsidiandawn.com has great photoshop brushes and if you google “photoshop brushes” you’ll get tons of hits. I suggest typing in “photoshop brushes” and whatever you’re looking for.
example: photoshop brushes chandelier
or photoshop brushes flourishes
One you open photoshop, you can either choose “us paper sizes” or, I highly recommend “photo sizes”. Or, you can just use the size you need by typing it into the boxes. Just be sure it’s CMYK and at least 300dpi.
if you need any help using photoshop, send me a pm!

Although the Etsy seller’s work is beatuiful there are definitely cheaper places to find downloadable templates. I have gone to a few but decided to try and design it on my own.
downloadandprint.com has templates at about half the price or less
designbetty.com has some nice ones too. just make sure it is the right size for your pocketfolds
Good luck to you on whatever you decide!!
