I need to make a directions insert for our invitations since our invitations didn’t really have the option to include one. Has anybody done this at Kinko’s? How exactly does this work. I put something together on a word document of what I would like to have on the insert. Do I need to also find the card stock I want to use or do they have it there?? I have no clue how to do this stuff so I would really appreciate it!! I just need it to be quick and cheap – and match my invites : ) Thanks!

The easiest thing is to a word document and provide that to Kinko’s. They can print it out on whatever card stock you want and trim it, etc. for you. It’s not the cheapest route, but it is probably the easiest.

The Staples store by us will print on their paper or on paper that you bring. If you really want it to match, I would suggest taking your own. We got printing done for work on our own paper and it was like 14cents per sheet and then I cut it down after it was printed. Those people are used to dealing with all kinds of situations, so I would suggest deciding what you want the final product to look like and then have them help you get there.

I did all my invites and inserts at Office Max by bringing in my own files and having them printed there, so similar situation to yours. What I would suggest is to maybe take a look at what papers they have and see if there are any that you really like and if so, you can have them printed on their own paper and you just bring in the file. What I did was find paper that I wanted (I bought some linen texture cream colored paper) and brought that in and had them print on my paper. I’m not sure about Kinko’s, but I know at OfficeMax, usually if you bring in your own paper, the price per print will be lower than if you use their paper.
Hope this helps!

I did a work doc at Kinko’s. In black and whte it’s 9 cents a page. color bumps you up to 59 cents. it was so easy, i just handed the guy my jump drive and used their fancy paper cutter! I brought my own paper

How do I bring them the file? Do I bring it on a flash drive. I imagine that would be better than just a piece of paper….. I think I will need my fiance to help with this one!
I will have to check out Office Max and Staple’s. That might be a better route to go – I didn’t even think of that!

you can bring them a flash/usb drive and they will print you off a "master" for you to check out. once you approve it, they can copy it AND CUT IT!
personally, i wanted it to be layed out perfectly already, so i made a print at home and made necessary changes at home. from there, i just brought the paper and they copied it for me on card stock. THEN they cut it to the perfect size. i had a website insert and directions both on there, and he cut them and rubber banded them up.
it was awesome. they were really helpful.

I purchased all of my DIY project paper from http://www.paperandmore.com They have cheap shipping and are extremely fast & friendly. Really good prices compared with other sites. I would recommend purchasing a sample sheet though, to be sure. I originally got the metallic white, but after getting samples decided on the metallic champagne. It wasn’t as bright against the other colors I was using.
