I’ll try to help ~ 

You can find jacket pockets for sale on line in tons of places.  Make sure you get samples ~ different prices typically indicate the quality of the pocket.  The classifieds here list some options.

5×7 is a typical shape, but by the time you layer a jacket, fill it with inserts and add a seal, I’m pretty sure you won’t be able to get basic postage.

Everything should be placed in the jacket  ~ it basically acts as an inner envelope.

My biggest tip would be to make sure you know the capabilities of your printer.  Test printing colors before you commit to printing in color and buy your paper.  Black always always always prints best.  

Make sure your printer can handle odd paper sizes or set up your document to print on 8.5×11 and then cut after.

If you need help along the way you can email me.

Best wishes on your planning.

I bought print yourself invites at Michael’s and ran into a problem…mine have cards for rsvps, directions and the actual invite.  My issue was how to let people know WHO I was including… and guest, kids, etc…

I ended up labeling the rsvp envelopes and I am  hoping that works.  Lesson here is plan before you print…wish I had a little better.
