I haven’t used powerpoint, though I’ve used microsoft publisher to design postcards–both for our save the dates, and for my friend’s bridal shower.  It seems like if you have access to powerpoint, you would also have access to publisher.  And because publisher is specifically designed for paper products, it may be a bit easier of a guideline.

Though I do have to say that francypants made a pretty nice invite 🙂

@francypants: You won’t quite be able to copy and paste into Adobe. To preserve formatting, you’d have to copy and paste the entire thing as an image…and then it wouldn’t be edit-able or scalable. Bummer, I know.

The issue with PPT is that it’s intended for display on a screen, not in print. But what you’ve made so far is beautiful. Have you tried printing it to see what it looks like? I’d be a bit cautious as you can’t make the adjustments in PPT needed for a printed piece, as well as the fact that colors and whatnot are intended to be seen on a screen.

Illustrator is pretty easy to use, especially if you’re working mostly with text.

But if this is your best option, I’d suggest getting a sample professionally printed (or however you intend to print) to ensure that print quality isn’t compromised.
