Is it really worth it to make your own wedding invitations or party invitations?
We hear over and over again from our customers that the answer to this question is a resounding YES!! The biggest advantage of course, is that it will save you a TON of money. Catalog-ordered or custom wedding invitations are usually quite expensive. And the more you need, the more they will cost. Once you start working on your guest list, it's very common to discover you need more than you thought. Or maybe you need a few last minute invitations because some were lost in the mail or accidentally damaged. With our printable templates, you can easily and affordably, print as many extra invitations as you need - quickly. Keep in mind, that you still might want or need wedding programs, RSVP cards, invitation inserts, menus, place cards, table numbers, Save the Dates, favor tags, and/or other wedding stationery items - all of which are an additional expense. But with our templates, you can print your own, and have the luxury of including SO much more coordinating stationery. This will add a completed and cohesive feel to your event and make a statement of sophistication and elegance. Your guests will no doubt be impressed with all of your matching wedding or party stationery.
Another huge advantage is all the creative control that you will have over your finished product. Try out different wording versions, different paper types or textures, different details or enhancements – your options here are limitless. Making your own invitations gives you much more creative freedom, so that you can take our unique designs and add your personal touches. And adding embellishments, additional inserts, matting or pocket folds are great ways to enhance your DIY wedding invitations with a minimal cost. Store bought invites that offer these options often charge you a LOT more for it. But our templates give you the option of creating a high end, beautifully detailed invitation for a fraction of the cost.
I have never done DIY invitations before. Do I have to be Martha Stewart to do this?
Not at all! Our easy to use invitation templates make the whole process super simple! You can make your wedding stationery or party invitations as simple or as detailed as you like. You get to take advantage of our easy templates with beautiful and unique designs, but still have a lot of creative control, such as adding your own wording and/or using colored backing paper (mat) or adding a pocket fold to your invitation. You can even add embellishments such as ribbon, crystals, or embossing. This gives you the opportunity to have stunning party invitations or wedding stationery with your personal touch and style, for MUCH less! And your guests are sure to be impressed when they find out you made your own invitations!
I see that you have Monogram wedding invitations. Can I use my own initials in that monogram?
You sure can! With our easy to use templates, changing the monogram to reflect your own initials is as easy as simply typing them in. The monogram is an editable image! So making your invitations personal with your own initials has never been easier.
What if I like a certain design but want to change the color?
Not a problem. If you like one of our templates, but your party or wedding colors are different, we can change the graphics of the invitation templates to any color that you’d like, for a small additional charge. To find out more, click here.
Do I have to print these at home on my inkjet?
Nope. You can take your final version of the PDF file on a disc to just about any professional printer and have them printed up. Even letterpress! Though the templates work great on most home inkjet or laser printers, having them professionally printed is a great way to add a bit more of a luxurious feel to the quality of your invitations. You’ll still save a ton of money compared to catalog or store ordered invitations. And giving you the template to work with gives you the ability to print out as many samples as you want without waiting for samples to be mailed to you. That’s a huge plus in my book.
Can I change the size of the templates?
This is not something you can do on your own, but for a small additional charge, we can resize any item for you. To find out more, click here.
Can I change the wording of the templates?
Absolutely! That’s one of the factors that make DIY wedding invitations so much fun! Each of our templates has sample text already included inside pre-placed text boxes. But you are able to type in any wording you like, with your own names, and wedding or party information. This is a great opportunity to experiment with traditional or non-traditional wording, because you can print out as many samples as you’d like, and change your text as many times as you want! Imagine the time and money you’ll save when you consider the cost to have this done, and the time it would take, through standard invitation ordering companies.
Can I change the font style?
Yes. Each template includes a suggested font that corresponds with the design of the invitations. But, you are able to change the font with any font on your computer. You are also able to change the color and size of the text yourself when you type your wording into the template. See our How it Works page to learn more about how this is done.
Are there any custom options available?
Indeed! All of our templates are digital files, so it is not a problem to offer some custom options. We can change current templates to the specific sizes or colors you need. See a design that you sorta like, but you’d be happier if you could tweak it a bit? That can be done too. Or maybe you just want to start from scratch and have us design something exclusive – just for you. Read more about our custom options on our Custom Options page.
What format are the templates?
Your templates are a PDF file that can easily be read on any PC or Mac, by Adobe Reader 7.0 or higher (available in English only). If you do not already have Adobe Reader 7.0 or higher, you can click here to download a free copy of Adobe.
When will I receive my template?
