How To Cut Your Invitations:

If you print your invitations at a commercial printer (like Staples or Kinkos), we suggest you pay them to cut out each piece for you.  If you're printing the invitation pieces at home, here's an instruction manual for cutting them on your own.  Remember that we've marked the invitations to the actual size of what you'll want to cut them to.  For example, if you've ordered a card stock backing for a 5x7 invitation, we'll set up the crop marks to measure just under 5x7 to give you a nice border.

Tools Needed:

  • Guillotine-Style Paper Cutter

Step 1:  Look for the Crop Marks

We add crop marks to each piece for easy cutting.  The "L" shaped crop marks are located on the OUTSIDE of the invitations - meaning the "L" shapes point away from the invitation pieces.

Step 2:  Cut All Outside Lines

We suggest starting on the edges of the invitation - cut all the outer edges off first. Start on one side, and work your way around the invitation in a clockwise manner, removing each outer edge.  That allows you to measure the remaining invitation pieces and cut precisely.

Step 3:  Cut Remaining Lines

Now you can measure the actual pieces and cut them to size on the remaining edges.
