    I have heard that kinkos does a really good job.  Office max has done some similar printing for me and they have always looked good.

    Calm down! ๐Ÿ™‚ your invitations are lovely. Why exactly are you freaked out about the cutting? Do you have a paper cutter? they’re quite cheap off ebay!

    printing might be expensive since you’ll need a lot of ink for these invitations in particular, unless you have a laser printer. I only managed 40 pocket fold-invitations with one set of cartridges on my Canon Pixma.

    Uprinting.com

    Theyre great, and they do free online proofs before you pay with bleeds and a color check. I printed mine there, and use them a lot for my pro bono work.

    Have you practiced cutting on scrap paper first? it took me a while to get the hang of it, now it’s fine!

    Or perhaps the blade isn’t sharp enough?

     

    I guess i’m a firm believer of getting things done myself, specially if I’m short on time!

     

    Could you please take some time to give me an idea on my invitations? thanks!

    @heather5743:

    ๐Ÿ™ really wish I could help! I don’t see why they shouldn’t turn out ok, specially since you’ve already practiced! 

     

    Perhaps you could try going to a local photographer…they might be willing to do it for a small price!

    I know this is late, but in case you still haven’t done them:

     

    – place them all on one page (or as much as you can) so that you can use up a good percentage of an 8×11 (or bigger)

    – buy the paper yourself

    – take your design & paper to a printer (you’ll be paying the lowest cost this way)

     

    If you’re paper slicer isn’t cutting it for you (I apologize for such a horrible pun), then just head to Kinko’s and use their giant ones there (make a copy or two then just set yourself up in the corner, I do this every now and then for the work invitations I send out)  Wink
