On Mac, I’m especially fond of using Pages.  I use it to create invitations, tags, etc.  You can pull inspiration from templates, Google Images, Etsy, Pinterest, etc and then free fonts are available online for download.  Then just play around with colors, orientation, fonts, etc until you have the right look.

@murphy2207:  Pages is either going to already be on your Mac or you can get it with the iWork package (I think it was about $70 from the Mac store, but you might be able to get it cheaper online).  Here’s the link to information about the program:

http://www.apple.com/iwork/pages/

The iWork software has a number of applications that I use constantly, so I think it’s a good investment anyways.  If you play around with Pages for a day or so, and look through the tutorials, you’ll get a feel for what it can do.  My favorite feature is sizing down the page margins, getting everything the way I want it, and then converting the document to a jpeg.  For invitations, this is a must because then you can have them printed on the cheap from Vistaprint or the like and have all your information in one file that can be uploaded.

MS Publisher was a million times faster and easier to use than Photoshop was for me.

@inspiredcreations:  I’m trying to DIY my invites on pages too and feeling completely lost! I don’t know how to set up my enclosures (invite, reply card, accomodations, map, etc) to print them using the least amount of paper. Also, this might be stupid, but if you print more than one card at a time do you use lines on the text boxes so that you know where to cut? I’m so confused :0(

I was wondering about the cutting too!
