I designed our invitations and printed them on pre-cut paper from Target.  It was just fine.  Don’t overthink it – just follow the instructions.

I do recommend extras – we completely forgot to invite some people!  Oops!

The biggest tips I can give you are:

  • Make sure your printer can handle the weight of the paper you are purchasing.
  • Until you have your layout/design finalized Test printing on regular copy paper and cut down to your invite size after printing, that way you dont need nearly as many extras for testing purposes!
  • Don’t be afraid to try something completely different and new!

I did all of my invites myself and then cut the paper to the correct size. Absolutely no one knew I did it DIY. I’ve even had other brides ask who I used so they can use that company too. I really enjoyed doing it too.

Best tip- use plain white paper for your test paper instead of the fancy invite paper.

– Make the fonts interesting and more expensive looking by downloading better ones at dafont.com

-use fancy labels or print your labels on the envelopes
