Okay, so I am thinking about doing the route where I buy one copy of invitation from an etsy designer and then I go somewhere or use vistaprint to print them out.
Here is my question. I did this for my bridal shower invites and the COLORS came out all wrong!! I had it done at kinkos and they did not look like the original invitation.
How can I make sure they turn out JUST like the way I bought them, who should I use?? Please help I need to order them asap:)

I used Vistaprint for some business cards and for our menus and the colours were PERFECT. I was really happy.
I also started a thread that has a great coupon code for Vistaprint so look there if you decide to go that route!

@mu_t: Thank you so much, so the coloring turned out exactly like the invitation you bought?

@BrideToBe14: It’s a little tough because different printers calibrate colors differently. If you have exact color builds – that’s the only way to truly ensure an exact match. If I were you, I would feel more comfortable going somewhere local (like a FedEx Kinkos) and printing one to make sure it matches – and go from there.

I used Smart Press and they did a fantastic job! The colors turned out correct. The only thing that I didn’t like were the envelopes I picked out. They were the Eco/kraft and they were see through so I had to make envelope liners. I really liked the way Smart Press works. I uploaded my template, chose all of the options I wanted (they literally can do anything), and submitted it. Then a representative sent me proofs and I had to approve them before printing. One of my templates wasn’t the right size so she offered to fix the problem for me. I can’t say enough good things about them. I ordered my Save-The-Date Cards through Vista Print and I prefer Smart Press more.
ETA: You can also pay a little bit for a sample and they will send it to you before you print a bull order!
