i too looked at down & print invites.  i downloaded the sample and did a test print.  the color didn’t look right and i didn’t want to fuss with the cutting and lining up. i thought about having them sent to a printer and cut but i thought about the cost so i decided to just order them from an invitation company.  i have too many diy projects.  i didn’t want my invites to look homemade.  i’ve seen some really great ones on here but many bees have a graphic design background. i tried photoshop, indesign, and illustrator and i couldn’t figure out how to use any of the programs.

@Miss Biner:  Oh no!  I downloaded a template from that same place, and I could edit everything.  Which template did you download?  I might be able to help.

@malisa0607: The Adobe programs are very difficult to use if you don’t have any experience with them. There is a free vector program called Inkscape that is similar to Illustrator. I have posted a tutorial in the DIY section. There is a link to the free download, as well as a step by step process (with LOTS of images) showing how to do the basics. (Hope this helps!)

I’m going a little batty invitation wise too! I’m not sure how to do that and don’t know of the company.

I caved and just used vista print. Quick and affordable and I didn’t have to rely on my own technological savvy.
