So, it’s beginning to look like my invitations designer has disappeared on us (after we had our pocketfolds and supplies shipped to her).
I could redesign similar invites but it is the cutting process that concerns me. Doing a pocketfold invite with 3 inserts only looks good if it is cut well. Not to mention, I don’t own an ink jet printer and am loathe to print it out using a laser printer knowing as I do that the toner will rub off and the invitations won’t be very pretty or nice looking when they arrive.
Does anyone have any advice? Help.

well an ink jet isn’t too expensive, and at least you can still use that investment in the future..
As for cutting, I heard Kinkos does a pretty good job. I believe they charge per cut. Might be worth the printer investment and finding out how much a cut is.

I would suggest taking it somewhere to be printed because then they usually also cut the paper for you. We made all our pocketfolds from scratch (bought full size sheets of paper then had it cut into the size that we needed). After gluing down all the pockets, I realized I didn’t feel like doing all the printing and cutting too.
We paid $120 for 120 invitations and that included the paper, printing, and cutting (3 inserts and the main panel). I’m sure you can find a vendor in your area that does something similar.
If you want to see pictures of our invites, email me at [email protected] and I can take some then send it to you.

I thought it was the reverse that inkjet ran while laser printing stayed. If you look at professionally printed flyers that come in the mail, or books, they are always done in laser….

I DIYed our pocketfolds and took the paper to be cut at CopyMax (connected to OfficeMax) and Kinkos. Cheap, easy, and fast results. Highly recommended.
You could also probably have them printed fairly resonably at a similar place or another smaller-time print shop, or find a friend or relative with a printer you would want to use and maybe offer them ink cartridges in return for helping you.

I would not be looking at duplicating your invites – I would be chasing this woman with a vengance trying to get my supplies back from her! Is she located far from you? Have you tried calling/writing/visiting and demanding the return of your supplies in every way possible? I can’t believe you’re so calm – I would be completely freaking out right now!

by your handle it says you’re a December Bride. Are you sure your invitation person has absconded with your items and isn’t just busy with other brides and you’ve been put on the back burner since your wedding is nearly 6 months away?
