@MrsWinTraining2014:  where would you take photographs to be printed?

What format is your file?

try target. I’ve had great success with the photo department there.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  have you tried walgreens? Pretty sure you can upload a file onto their website, and have them printed in multiple sizes for pick up.

Print larger on standard paper through the printer then cut it down to size.  We had to do that with more than a few wedding paper projects.

Try FedEx/Kinkos? I printed our Christmas cards there. They were an irregular size too so I put two on a letter-sized pdf and just cut them out when I got them. they also do different papers. 🙂 how many sheets of 5.5×5 will you need printed?

@MrsWinTraining2014:  oh and not to be the bearer of bad news.. and perhaps you already know this… but my invitations were an akward size as well…  you will need to figure in postage… my invites were $1.66 per invite and as I learned, many post offices will put it through if the postage is incorrect, bu there are some that will send it back.

@MrsWinTraining2014:  FedEx doesn’t have photo paper it seems but they have “Gloss Cover” cardstock (not sure what that is though), and it’s about $1.50 per letter page. Their regular cardstock is $1.30 per letter page. You can choose however many pages you need of each kind. Just saw too that they have $25 off orders of $100+. there’s no minimum order so if you have a nearby branch and you want to get just 1 sheet to see how it’ll come out, you can do so within a couple hours. 🙂

So sorry you’re going through so much trouble! I DIY’ed my invites too and definitely reached a point where I totally regretted it… Til I was done haha. 🙂
