I printed mine off the computer. I used Wilton invitations and then used their website uploader to print them using a laser printer.

I’m not sure what you mean by a stamp..

I think it depends on what you’re doing, exactly. There are invite kits at the hobby shops that are designed to be printed.

It might also depend on the quality of the printer. I printed our Save-The-Date Cards from our printer and they turned out fine, but I wouldn’t have used it for an invite that had a really intricate design or a solid color background.

I designed mine in Adobe Illustrator, printed on our home printer, and then sewed the pages together using my sewing machine. It really just depends what effect you’re going for! Are there any inspiration photos you have?

@tnovakow:  FYI, if you don’t want to commit to the illustrator purchase and you know exactly what you want, you might be able to get all of your work done over the course of 1-2 30-day trials of Illustrator. I thought the program was pretty easy to use with great tutorial videos.

@tnovakow:  i bought a wilton diy kit and printed them out on my laser printer.  there was just text (no design/pics).  they turned out great.  i also added some ribbons and monogram sticker to them to make them coordinate with my colours and theme.  with everything, they were only $1/each

@tnovakow:  no, the diy kit came with the jackets(wrap), the invites, the rsvp’s/envelopes, seals, glue dots to attach to the jacket, labels for the names and the outside envelope for everything.  each set is different of course.  wilton has a site with templates for their products for printing.  it was very easy to use.  i just printed them on my laser printer; no special inks.  my printer only prints black that is why i added some colour with ribbon. it did not take long at all.
