    Is there any way you can post a picture? It would make it easier to offer suggestions.

    A picture would definitely help.  I DIYed my invites and printed everything at home (pocketfold, 3 insert), would that be an option for you?

    Could you try using VistaPrint?  They’re farily affordable with all of the links/groupons & maybe try creating something new or replicating what you have in different colors.  Can we see what you have already though?

    I would suggest maybe cut off the un-matching printed border. Since the text is smaller, the text color would not be too noticable.

    Was the shade of blue your choice or the printer’s choice? Maybe talk to them and tell them their color did not match up with yours and see if they can offer you a discount on a re-print?

    If you post a picture, we could give more advice…

    Hope it works out.

    Well the save the dates aren’t sent with the invitation, so that doesn’t matter if it matches. Does the font look smaller than it did on the proof?

    They look great and no one will notice the different navy shades. BYW- you will never be able to get the navy shades to match. Seriously, they end up in the trash after the date is entered onto a calendar. Don’t stress and send them out as is!!

    @ali_bride:  These are great! I really like the design. Don’t worry about the varied shades…no one but the bride notices these things. 😉
