i’m in the process of designing my invites….i test printed only the invite wording itself using the laserjet printer at my job, and i must say, i was impressed at how awesome the clarity was….it looked really good….problem is, its a black and white printer…doesn’t print color….
so i’m sitting here thinking….what difference is it really gonna make on the look of the invite whether the font is chocolate brown or black?? cuz if i do the font black…..i can print the parts of the invite that can be done in black using the laserjet printer at my job…..saving me half the cost of getting them all printed elsewhere….(i have no good quality color printers available to me whatsoever)….
what do yous think??
does it matter??

No. It doesn’t matter. Save the money. You could incorporate brown in another way…like a belly band that’s brown, or twine, or brown ribbon. I like black and brown together.
Seriously if they look nice, just do it yourself and save yourself the money. I promise that at the end of the day, no one is going to come to your wedding and be like what? Their colors are BROWN? They confused me so much because I was going off of the font color on the invites! Catastrophe!

Ha, I don’t think it matters either. As long as you are happy with the way they look, they’re YOUR invites! And, as @NauticalBride2011 mentions, you could always work color in another way (belly band, twine, ribbon, envelope, envelope liner, maybe on an info card or something, etc. etc.!).
