How To Print Your Invitations:
We do NOT suggest printing these invitations at home - most home printers will not accept the thicker card stock we supply. An industrial printer works best. Below you'll find our video tutorial on printing your wedding invitations on your own. We've also written out step-by-step instructions:
Inkjet Printing (local printer)
Step 1: Print a Sample
Before you print the entire order, print one sample first, to ensure the coloration and density is what you're wanting. When printing samples, print one of EACH page (Invitation, RSVP and information card, for example). Begin with a sheet of regular white paper so you don't waste the limited supply of paper we provide.
Step 2: Adjust the Printer's Color Settings
The representative of the printing company is able to adjust the printer's settings to make it print lighter or darker. We have set the coloration to match the Pantone color of the envelopes you've selected, but unfortunately, every printer is set differently. Once the coloring is close, then you can use a sheet or two of your own paper to make sure it's perfect. We always throw in a few sheets of extra paper with the D.I.Y. printing orders because printing mistakes do happen.
Step 3: Print the Order
Once one has been printed, you'll want to place the rest of your order. Make sure the sales person knows exactly what settings the printer was set up to, to ensure all the pages come out looking the same.
Step 4: Ask them to cut your paper
When your paper is printed on a commercial machine, you can typically cut all all the pages at once. It costs money per each cut, but it's a major time saver. If you've printed the invitations on your own printer, we do not suggest cutting the pages in bulk - it likely will not line up properly.
