i dont know what kind of computer/printer you are using but You should be able to adjust the print margin settings.

It depends on your printer, there are a million things for the margins that could be whacked.  But for the quality of it there are usually a few places you can change the settings on to a higher DPI, some have ’rounding’ options to smooth out the print and changing the paper thickness can help as well.

I know it’s super frustrating – take a break from it for a day or two, have a cocktail and test it out again after you look through all the customizing spots in your printer settings.

Good luck!

Take it to Fedex/Kinkos.  They’ll typeset it for you, and charge you to copy it onto he invitations… assuming you’re doing all black printing.  It should be about 6 cents a page for the copying, and you do all the assembly.

@kermie: Honestly. I would start a new document and copy/paste your text in fresh. It sounds like you need a landscape layout with 3 columns set up? Would that work?

What program were you using?  You could try using Microsoft Publisher.  It’s easier to play with the margins and comes standard with most microsoft suite options.  If you need help, let me know.

After you create the file, can you save it as a PDF and try printing it? Sometimes that will work

Check the type of paper your printer thinks it’s getting. If I forget to specify “envelope” or “8 1/2 x 11 letter” and it thinks it’s the other one, the margins get horribly wrong and I end up wasting my expensive envelope/paper. (I’m *gasp* printing my envelopes too. Emily Post would not approve.)

I was like you. Not that I’m crafty but the whole printing issue. I gave up and went to a local print shop and they printed it at a discount and did  all my cutting for free. It saved my sanity, I kid you not. Now, mounting the first and second layer backing AND rounding the corners on all pieces of backing and inserts…oh well, my wrists 🙁
