You can print it on the cards.  What you need to do it print one as a test and then you just have to keep moving it around in order to get it to line up properly.  It is sort of a pain.  On the other hand, I wonder if you could have a custom stamp made with the design so that you can stamp it on all of them?

You could make a design and take it to Staples or somewhere similar. IDK if you can use your own paper or not though, but you can definitely get professional looking printed things there. I just got my STD’s printed at Staples and I am SO GLAD I didn’t do it on my home computer, like I had planned.

 

I spent $50 on about 84 STD’s that are 4×4.5.. just to give you some sort of reference for proce at Staples. I got some sort of shiny ivory paper too.

I agree with the others, get it printed professionally somewhere with your design. It’s almost as cheap as buying the ink yourself and will save you time and stress. You can scan your design onto your computer and take it to them.

You can have the artist friend draw it and scan it into a computer, and then draw over it in Photoshop. You could also probably hang up fliers at a local college if one is near you.. you could offer an art student like $20 to transfer it to the computer or something.

Just save it on a USB or CD and they’ll be able to upload it easily at the store!

I don’t know if you have access to or friends who have access to any of the Adobe Creative Suite programs, but using InDesign, you (or a friend) could easily align the image and the text so that it prints in the correct proportion.

I agree with the ladies, professionally done might be the way to go, so that way you don’t have to deal with the hassle of so many corrections, and it could prove to be costly if things don’t pan out.

You can buy an Adobe file of a bird online and use that. I bought my invite motif, I’m useless with graphic design.

You could also go to istock photo and buy an Illustration, then you would have the file of it.  They arent super expensive for basic ones, just search for only illustaration and use key words like bird and branch. Good luck!  http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=file&oldtext=bird%20on%20branch&abstractType=4&fileTypeSizePrice=%5B{“type”:%20″Image”,%20″size”:%20″None”,%20″priceOption”:%20″1″},%20{“type”:%20″Illustration%20[Vector]”,%20″size”:%20″Vector%20Image”,%20″priceOption”:%20″All”},%20{“type”:%20″Flash”,%20″size”:%20″Flash%20Document”,%20″priceOption”:%20″None”},%20{“type”:%20″Video”,%20″size”:%20″None”,%20″priceOption”:%20″1″},%20{“type”:%20″Standard%20Audio”,%20″size”:%20″None”,%20″priceOption”:%20″1″},%20{“type”:%20″Pump%20Audio”,%20″size”:%20″None”,%20″priceOption”:%20″1″}]&orientation=0&text=bird,%20branch Try that!

What about stamping them and then using embossing powder? It makes it look really pretty if you do it right! I might be doing that since I’m too lazy to find a printer.
