@MissDodger:  Often times, in your print settings, you can specify print quality and paper type.  Go for best quality and cardstock specialty paper, and it will print MUCH more cleanly.  Also, allow them to dry for at least 30 mins before handling.  Especially if you are printing an image or something that requires a lot of ink, they need much more drying time than a standard print or else you will smear.  Do a test print on a scrap invite first before you waste time/$$$ on printing the whole lot.  If it doesn’t do well, then take them to Kinkos or Staples to get printed.  If you are buying the digital file, instead of just licensing it, you are able to do what you want with it after the fact.

I bought a printable on etsy and had it professionally printed, I never got the sense that any of the sellers would have known, or cared.  Once you have the PDF I don’t see what it would matter where you have it printed.  I had mine letterpressed by Reaves Engraving.
