I am looking into using WPD for my invitations, but I’m having a hard time visualizing how the finished product will look. I’d like to do their layered invites but you can’t get a sample of the cardstock backing so how am I supposed to know whether I like their limited color choices with my invites? Also, I know you can get all the components of the invites/rsvps, but how do you bind them all together and make them look nice rather than a bunch of loose papers when people open the envelope? These seem like such silly questions, but I have gotten used to all the options Magnet Street offers on their invitation suites so I feel like I’m missing something on the WPD’s website. I’d just like to see some finished products so I can get an idea of options.

I too am going with WPD and ordered samples off their site which was a HUGE help in determining what I liked/didn’t like.
To keep the suite together I’m going to make a paper sash which will match the envelope liner I’m making.
Also, try Paper Source, they sell blank pocketfolds and they have all the same standard sizes as WPD.

I am using WPD as well. I designed my invite then did a “print screen” and scaled it in MS Paint. Then I printed out a mock up on my printer and attached it to the sample invitation kit I ordered from Cardsandpockets. I decided that the colors for my pocketfold were exactly what I was looking for and matched my invite. But, as has been mentioned, you can also order samples of your invites or inserts for a buck a piece. You can’t beat that for some peace of mind!
Good luck 🙂

I just ordered mine! They haven’t arrived yet, but I did order some samples a few months ago. They’re really beautiful, and only $1. I recommend seeing before you buy – their samples sold me on their product.

Thanks ladies. I ordered a few samples and got a notification that they’ll be shipping today or tomorrow, I just wish they would do samples of the cardstock they offer for layering because there really isn’t even a good picture on their website. Oh well. Magnet Street may end up being my choice since they make things so easy!

We are just getting ready to order ours from them, so I don’t have any finish products to share yet! It’s DEFINITELY a good idea to order samples though. One of the invitations, we thought that the colors were purple and orange (our colors), but when the sample came in, they were HOT PINK and orange. Sometimes the colors look different on screen than in person!!

They don’t show you the invite with your info filled in? I’m using Minted and it does that. I’ve already taken screen shots of a few different wording options so I can decide what I want.
I assumed Minted and Wedding Paper Divas were two sides of th same coin.

Yeah if you click personalize, you can personalize the invite on WPD. When you actually order it, before the order is finalized, a graphic designer sends you an email to verify that has the complete order so you can see it a second time.
