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.
