    Is it possible to take a nice card blank inside and use my printer to print my STD's on the inside? If so what type of printer should I use?

      I would think it could be possible. The only thing is the card, depending on it's thickness, by get bent, mis-shaped when going through the printer.

        I was thinking that and I started to think about the card making software and now I am back to square one with my STD change number 650

          you will have to be careful as many cards have a glossy finish on them that might not print

            I was in Target last week and they have a pretty nice collection of invites/STDs that you can make at home. Check it out!

              they sell kits at staples you can get postcards, regular cards, business cards, all different types, they are just plain white, but you could print something on the front if you wanted as well. But you should use a good printer to do it.

              My dad has this crazy laser printer, everything comes out so good on it, I printed all of my wedding stuff there, hehe, probably why he's running out of ink now!

              If you can find a good color laser printer, that's your best bet. Check with friends to see if their offices have them, because they are $$$$$!!

              Next best bet is a decent laser printer on colored paper. But do a test run, and by about 10% more cards than you think you need - there will be flubs, and that way you can toss those without any pain.

                I want to take a general nice card that is blank inside but has the picture on the outside and print my letter on the inside. I just didnt like the plain letter concept and my family wouldnot get the tickets thing so a card like you get for your birthday or christmas with our letter inside and the STD RSVP and our STD magnet on the inside.

                Will they print?

                you know for our original STD's (for Jamaica before we moved it to Napa) we found these beautiful shell cards from Papyrus and I printed a label that fit perfectly on the inside of the card and just stuck it in there, they turned out really cute. Then I got a stamp of a sand dollar to add a little touch to it. I will try to find one and take a picture, but I don't think I have anymore.
