So I made my invitations in Word (will post a pic later but they are on my computer at home) what would be the best way to print them?? do I print them straight from word onto photopaper..or should I save as a JPG first ooor will I even be able to print them myself or should I take them to staples or something to get them printed?

I printed mine straight from photoshop with my printer and it worked best for me. If you’re unsure it might be best to have someone else do it. I know a couple of mine had some ink issues but it wasn’t that bad. I also used cardstock not photopaper so it depends on what you’re doing.

I took mine to Office Depot to print. I have a discout through my job and I didn’t want to have to worry about any printing issues that may have come up.

I wouldn’t save as a jpg, the quality might be vastly reduced. If you can save to a PDF that would be WAY better. Printing from Word would likely be fine so long as you have the printer set up properly for the margins, type of paper, etc. If you’re happy with the print quality you get from home, then go for it! I printed all of mine at home off my inkjet. I did my invitations in Illustrator though.

Agree with @bakerella
– definitely do not
save as a .jpg unless you want a blurry and/or pixelated invitation! Print directly from the source if you can, or a PDF if you must.
As for printing, if you have a high quality printer that will give results you’ll be satisfied with, go for printing directly from your Word doc!

Thanks everyone! I think I will attempt it from home and just do a test run- one on cardtsock maybe and one on photo-paper and if I dont like how they come out then maybe I will take it to Staples or something. Thanks for the tip about not saving as a JPG bakerella!

I would save them as a high quality PDF and have them printed at Staples or Kinkos or whatever. You really want these laser printed, not inkjet, so you should not do it at home.
