Hi Akp,

I haven’t purchased a template/design before from Etsy, but I have designed my own items and had them printed/ cut, so I’ll share my process!

The printer will probably send you a print-ready PDF file. Make sure the designer includes “crop marks” on the final file, which are tiny lines on the edge of your paper that show the printer where to cut.

You can do the following at this point:

  1. Purchase the paper yourself from Staples or Office Depot. They have cardstock in a variety of colors. (an Office Depot consultant actually opened the package for me to look at a single piece of paper which is SO HELPFUL!).
    OR
    choose your cardstock directly from a printing store [more expensive option].
  2. Print the items yourself on your home printer OR take the paper you’ve purchased and the file to FedEx Office [more expensive option]. You can obtain a quote from them beforehand, ask them how much they’ll charge to print 200 full color items on cardstock you are providing, for instance. It will probably be like $50, give or take.
  3. Have FedEx Office cut your items. They charge around $1.50 per cut (so, if you have a stack of 200 pieces of 8.5″ x 11″ paper and you want to cut the paper down to 4″ x 6″, the charge will be $6 TOTAL to make four cuts!! I was so amazed to learn this; I have nearly broken up with my desktop paper cutter as a result!).

Let me know if you have any questions!

Just to add to #3 a bit, the charge is about $6 total for 200 pieces, not for each piece! Also, they do a great job, even better than I could do at home!
