I’ve made my own invitations from a kit. I made a mistake on the response cards. I forgot to put a place for them to write their names. 2 people proofread them and didn’t notice it! Bah! Here’s a photo of what the look like now.
Should I leave it? I would have to number the backs of them so I know who sent them.
Should I try to figure out how to add it? That’s risky since I don’t have a lot of extra invites to spare, and I don’t know where I’d add it.
Should I get cardstock and start over on making them?
Any other suggestions or ideas?

I would probably re-do them….
Or maybe you can feed them in your printer on the back side with the names?? (or hand write them)??

You can get away with just numbering them, like in this post: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/invisible-ink-pen-alternative-for-rsvps and then just keep a data base yourself of which number goes to which person. That way you won’t have to reprint or alter the cards.

I did what @future mrs Q: suggested. I had a space for the names, but numbered them anyways.
You would be suprised how many people dont know what to put on that line…or they dont put anything at all lol

@Ashley1001: To re-do them on this paper it would cost me $100. I’d have to re-do them on a different paper and I don’t know if that’s going to look weird.
I don’t need each individual’s name on them just the
“M _________________” space where they fill in their own name.
Argh. I just don’t want it to look ridiculous.

@future mrs Q: As soon as I realized the mistake, that’s exactly the post my mind went to! I just wasn’t sure if it would strike someone as weird if they didn’t have to put their names down.
My (biased) mom said if she had got it in the mail she probably wouldn’t have thought twice about it. I was hoping others might say the same thing.

Could you feed them thru the printer again, and just print a line on the top? Just use underscore like this:
The only other thing I can think of is to draw the line with a ruler and physically write the name in yourself (like calligraphy).
Theres still space at the top for a line tho. I’d try it.

Can you include a note for them to please write their names? Otherwise you can number them like pp suggested but you still need the names though for seating arrangement and escort cards

I agree with Eagle, there’s definitely room at the top for a line. If you don’t want to send them back through your printer, I’d just take a ruler and a nice pen and draw a line on each one. You don’t need the “M” or “Name”, people will figure it out.
If you’re worried, do the black light pen as well (or cheaper: just mark the number in light pencil on the back). Don’t worry, it’ll be fine! 🙂

I think you’ll be fine if you just leave it..Or like @toshella using a ruler and a good ink pen. Most people have no idea how to even fill out an RSVP card..I’d just lightly number the back so you know who it came from.

i’d put a line at either the top or bottom 🙂

I would just put the “M ______________” on the top, you have some space there, it should look fine!
