So I bought my invitations from Michael’s (link below). I used their online template to create the wording and everything, so all I needed to do was put the paper in my printer and hit print, right? nope! My printer is NOT working with this paper. I did some research and found that it’s not uncommon for laser printers to have issues with some of the Bride’s invitations kits. I wasn’t too discouraged because I figured someplace like FedEx Kinkos could do the printing. I went into Kinkos today and the guy said that they couldn’t do it because my paper has some gold foil details at the top and that it would be bad to put that through their printer. He refered me to the copy shop at the local community college so I’m going there tomorrow. Have any of you bees ran into problems with printing your own invitations or have any suggestions for a printer or a printing company that may be able to help me out?

I just had this same issue and went to Staples. Don’t go there! They were so mean to me and wasted our time. Then we looked in the phone book and found a local printing house. We dropped the invitations off at close Friday and we had our quote today at 4! That was really fast (they aren’t opened on the weekend) they quoted us $114 for 75 invitations, response cards, infomation cards, maps/direction cards and to do our return address of both envelopes. It’s not a bad price at all… I highly suggest finding a printer in your area! Saves a lot of hassle and they will be done perfectly.

I have no advice, just wanted to second that the Brides invitations didn’t work with my laser jet. After a lonnnnng process, I ended up ordering cardstock prints off etsy and cutting them to fit into the Brides invites.
