Hi Bees! I’m seeing soooo many GORGEOUS home-made invitations and getting so many great ideas from you crafty ladies…however my question is, are you bees printing your actual invitations and other cards on your home computer or are you having a company do them? I just feel like I have no idea how to make sure everything is the write size and I feel like it would be a pain in my rear. (not to mention I’m not very creative and would rather have someone else come up with the design and printing for me) haha. But I do like the idea of ordering the pieces and putting it together myself to save some $$…Just not sure about the actual printing bit….What have you DIY invitation brides been doing with such great success?!

I printed all of mine. My kit came with some pages that you can run through the printer as testers to make sure alignment is correct. I also downloaded the page template off the wilton website that corresponded to my invite style to make sure the margins were set correctly. I made sure I had plenty of ink in the colors i was using. Printed 150 sets on my home computer & they came out wonderfully. I may have not been the best graphic designer, but the printing went without a hitch & they look great 🙂

I have been having the same worries! I really want to print myself to save money but I am afraid it won’t come out well! Do some printers work better than others??

I printed all of my stuff and cut all the paper instead of ordering things pre-cut, which saved a lot of money! but when it did come time to print stuff, it took a little trial and error to get it just right, and to do test papes, I just used plain scrap pieces of white paper, and I would use a different color ink than what the actual invite was going to be just so i didn’t use all the black ink just doing test pages
