So, I purchased invitation kits online and am wondering what some other brides did for the printing of the invitations/response cards/etc…. Did you use your personal printer at home or did you design them and have a professional do the printing??
I’m just trying weigh the pros and cons for time, cost and quality. What do you think or what has your experience been?!

We made ours from a ream of paper so they werent’ cut apart yet but we just went up to my FI work after hours and ran them through the laser printer. When it was time for the envelopes we picked a nice script and ran those through the printer also.

if they are smaller than 8.5×11 then some places cant print them, i learned this the hard way, Staples couldnt print them. so i would check first before planning on that.

I did mine on my printer at home. They have a lot of color, so I ended up going thru 2 ink cartridges – it probably would have worked out cheaper to have them done! But if you are just doing mainly black text, I’d say try one at home & see how it turns out!

I printed mine at home and it was very easy. My printer got “tired” after about 30 sheets and I had to give it a rest for an hour or so. But I spread out my printing so it wasn’t really a problem. When I say it got tired, I mean it would just stop printing certian elements of the invitation. Like it would only print half a page, or it would print the text without the graphic. But after it “rested” it was fine.
My invitations were mostly text and were not saturated with color or black ink, so DIY printing was very easy.
