I used Michaels invites and loved them… It was easy to use, and we had many compliments on them (some even said they never saw such beautiful invites – for what I paid for them, I was shy to get comments so nice!)

I have them!! I just downloaded all the Microsoft Word templates I need for mine off their website! It seems to be super easy and when I bought mine from Michaels I used 50% off coupons and only spent $75.00 on my invites! and they are nicer then that ones I got quoted for over $600.00!!

i used them and they turned out fantastic!! step one- check to see if you have a printer that aligns in the middle and not to one side when it’s for a smaller piece of paper(i had this problem, after a few hours i figured it out but was a huge pain) but other than that, i don’t think anyone knows i did them myself!

My sister got her damask invite suite from Michael’s. I printed everything up on my HP 1315 inkjet printer using the provided templates on the “best” setting. They turned out great. She is on deployment so I took some pics and e-mailed them to her. Let me see if I can edit out the personal info and I will post a pic.

I used these and I am soooo pleased with how they turned out!

If you follow the instructions properly (online) it is a piece of cake!

I used an inkjet printer on the “best” setting also!

Here is a pic of them – I bought some pearl embellishments from Michael’s as well, to add a little somethin’ somethin’

My friend used them for her wedding and they turned out beautifully! Don’t have any photos, but I’d definitely recommend them!

I think I may use them. Invites is one place we’re trying to save money.

I used the chocolate ones from above.  Our colors were chocolate and pink.  So, we also precut light pink velum and put that on top of the invite and then tied the ribbon around it.  We had so many compliments.  People who said they were the prettiest invitations they had ever seen.

@Gemstone….they are super easy to use. They even have several examples of wording that you can use on the invites, RSVP cards, etc.

One tip: If you plan on printing the return address directly on the invite like I did, use MS Word to create your template and then create a custom format for the envelope size. If you use the envelope setting in MS Word, it won’t allow you to use 3.5″ x 5″ as an envelope size.

I’ve used their wedding invitations for a bridal shower invitation.  I got a lot of compliments on the invitations!  I made them extra snazzy by adding special ribbon and an overlay of floral paper.
