@Mulan05:   Great tip!   I was worried about how the printer would handle “itsy bitsy squares” of paper rather than the usual full sheets…and things coming out crooked!

 

Quick question – – When you fed in the “invite” or “rsvp” cards into the printer, did you center it, put it all the way to the left, or right?  I’ve never printed on anything other than fullsize paper…

I have a question for you all. When you bought your invitation kits at Michaels, were you limited by your colors? For example, if there was a design I liked, am I able to choose which colors I want with it? Or is it what you see, is what you get?

@PeachSnapple:  I taped the RSVP card/invite in the top-left hand corner of the paper. I then place the paper face down all the way to the right side of the printer. I’m not sure if it’s the same with all printers? I have an HP Deskjet.

What you can do to test how your printer works, is just feed through a regular full size piece of paper and see where the “invite” or “RSVP” prints. Then, once you figure that out, you’ll know which side to tape the RSVP or invite to the paper. Also, another tip: don’t separate the RSVP cards before printing. In my kit they came two to a sheet.

@MissKit:  what you see is what you get.   But the designs/colrs they have are very nice!!  I ffound a few I liked…  Although I to be honest I didnt care if they matched my colors, just if I liked them or not

Our enagement party invitations and my ladies’ bridal showert invitations both came from Michaels 🙂 We paid I think $39.99 for the engagement party ones:

And my Maid/Matron of Honor and I found the shower ones for $9.99 for 40! They were on sale/were just discontinued 🙂

The pennets took a long time to make, and then we had to glue the actual invitation (where we printed the words out) onto the blue background, but they were SO cute! The flower invites were much easier, you just put the invite into the pocket and tied the ribbon.

Printing was easy too! We were bummed that we couldn’t actually get the formatting that the pennet one showed (I still don’t know why it wouldn’t work for us) but we used a similar font and it worked just fine. The flower invites were super simple!
