My invites were sort of DIY.  We got them printed at our local invitation store, By Invitation Only, and we put them together.  So I suggest finding a local inviation shop where you live, it beats using your own computer printer.  Good luck!

I am using Cards and Pockets and printing at home and then adding color with stamping and embossing.  I got a photo printer for Christmas and it worked wonderfully with the test paper samples I ordered.  I really wanted to print at home because I wanted the flexibility to be able to change things at the last minute or adjust contrast, etc.  The printer I guess was relatively inexpensive, my mom said she got it at Walmart on sale, and I should be able to use it for other project afterward.

I actually used Fedex/Kinkos for our invitations (Bought them in advance, just had them print the actual text), and I had a great experience.

We also have MinuteMan Press in the Indy area, too. I used them for my sister’s shower invitations, and they were great to work with also. I would check and see if they’re in your area.

I created mine in Publisher and Word then had them printed at Minuteman Press on card stock i bought from Hobby Lobby.  They turned out great!!  i had her print them slightly smaller than 5×7 then added a colored card stock backing using scrapbooking tape/ glue.  it was so simple and i was able to have complete control over the colors and design.

I am DIY-ing a lot of stuff for our wedding so that I can have exactly what I envision.

Good luck!  🙂
