Ok… So I designed my pocketfolds and am in the middle of figuring out the correct size for all of the inserts. I have decided on a specific “Champagne Metallic” paper to print then on and they will come in an 8 1/2 x 11 size.
I will have the invitation, 2 inserts (to be printed on front AND back of both) and the RSVP card. All of these items were created in a word document. My question is this: How… or better yet is it even possible to merge two documents in to one so that I can print them on the same sheet of 8 1/2 x 11.
In my mind, I should be able to put the invite and the RSVP card on one and the 2 inserts on the other. This way I can save paper and time. Our Best Man said I should print screen on one of the inserts, crop it in paint and insert the jpeg in word… Any other suggestions?

I agree with your best man, except
1) Save as a .png image (better quality that way), and
2) If you have Photoshop or access to it, paste it into there on an 8 1/2 x 11 plain page as you want them to look on the printed out cardstock (that’s what I do). You can place the images where yoy want them.
You can either print right from there, and/or save the final 8 1/2 x 11 as a png image and print that right from Windows or the Windows Paint program.
There’s always more than one way to achieve the same results with computers!
Personally, I’ve stopped using Word for the wedding stuff because I found this process too time consuming, however, I’m an advanced user and have some digital graphics experience.
Initially tho, I used Word to create the programs, and have since created Save the Dates, Invitations, Menu’s, Table #’s, etc. all in Photoshop and now I have to scrap the Word Programs because I can’t get them to match.. Meh…….
Anyway, I digress….
VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure the resolution is set at minimum to 300. Anything lower and you risk pixilation!!
