Hi Bees! I want to see if I can DIY as much of my invitation as I can! I really love these invitations on deckled edge paper. Does anyone know if a regular printer at home can print on this? I haven’t tried because I would need to buy a whole package of the paper but I might just have to spend the money to try. Or would a place like Staples print on it? Secondly, any ideas on how I can design it? I know of Canva only and it might work it might now. TIA!

awong16 : Gorgeous inspiration for an invite. No – I’m not thinking s regular printer could handle that though

If you need to print at home, I wouldn’t buy already deckled paper. I’d print first, and then deckle. https://www.oncewed.com/diy/diy-faux-deckled-edge-paper/ It won’t be the same as the real thing, but still may look nice.

second – regular printers will have trouble picking up already-deckled edges to print.

Standard at home printers will not be able to recognize the edges of the paper and you would probably end up wasting a ton of paper and ink trying to get just one to go through successfully. If you want to DIY, you’ll need to print and then reform the edges after. I don’t believe places like staples will print on this type of paper either.
I would strongly suggest using photoshop or even better, Illustrator, to design your invites. Canva can only go so far but adobe software will let you manipulate the font like your inspiration photo. Some college campuses have adobe software available to the public in their library.
