i used adobe illustrator to edit the vector images and adobe indesign for the layout.  after they are designed they were saved as pdfs and printed from the pdf.

I used adobe indesign and did the whole thing in their. Although I didn’t use a lot of actual graphics in them.

and like peachykiwi, i sometimes did complete editing in illustrator if the document did not require a lot of typesetting.  i just prefer indesign for items that required more formatting and more typesetting.  i did baby shower invites entirely in illustrator but the fonts were simple.  for my invites, i used a lot of pro fonts so it was easier to access the glyphs in indesign.

I used word as well, but I bought a BRIDES invitation kit from Michaels, and they had a website to download a template from.

Microsoft Publisher. It is much better than Word…..more cooperative. 🙂

@red_pepper_gal:  I’m also using a Brides/Michaels/Gartner kit also. It does come with templates, though I’ve found I’ve had to make up some of my own for the envelopes and such. All I’ve had to use was Microsoft Word and fuss around with margins and text boxes, pretty easy stuff. My main problem has been getting things centered correctly when I’ve made the template myself. Printing them right now, they’re looking pretty good!

I vote Publisher as well.  I did invitations, menus, Rehearsal Dinner invites, everything on Publisher.  Most computers with MS Office have it.

Not printed yet, but made with Inkscape, which is a freesource Adobe Illustrator. Vectors won’t lose integrity so no worries about grainy stuff there!
