Okay, so I want to print my own invitations. I want them to fit in an A9 envelope so I made the invite template 5.5 x 7.5. All of the paper I’m looking at is only sold in the size 8 x 11. Do I use this size paper to print on and then cut it after wards, or do I need to cut this paper and THEN print onto it?

Print and then cut. Then you can have a design that you want to go all the way to the edge of the paper (bleed).

Definitely print and then cut! And you can put two invites on one page to save costs.
One thing I wanted to mention, you can take it or leave it, but I originally wanted to do the same size you are planning on – A9 envelope – until I looked into prices for the envelopes and noticed that the A7’s were cheaper. Not substantially, but since we were on a budget, it made us switch gears and go smaller. If you do decide to go with the A7 size, look into Vistaprint and Groupons for it. That’s how we were able to afford our invitations that are much more exciting then I had originally planned.
Also, according to this site, your invite can be uper to 5.5×8.625. If you go 7.5, you may have excess room that will cause the envelope to bend during shipping.
