I am in the process of putting together my invitaions and I am stuck. I am using square pocket card invites.

 

First, I would like to print our return address on the back of the 7 1/2 x 7 1/2 square envelopes.

Second, I would like to print our address on the front of the 3 5/8 x 5 1/8 reply card envelope.

 

I don't know if I can run envelopes that size through my printer. I went to Staples and they told me they can't print on any envelopes, no matter the size. Anyone else have this issue or have any suggestions as to how to print on these envelopes?

I am so not a DIY person or even remotely creative so I am probably the last person you want advice from but here goes:

 

1. I think if you go on the Martha Stewart Weddings website they show you how to do this. You could try a search on printing envelopes and see what happens.

 

2. I think they sell computer programs that allow you to custom make wedding invitations. I'm not sure how much these costs, but it will still be cheaper than having your invitations made.

 

3. If you can't figure out how to do it, there are other alternatives. A friend of mine had her counsin who has beautiful handwriting do the lettering and they look so professional and gorgeous. Another friend of mine printed the address on regular paper and then decopaged it onto the envelope. It also came out really nice.

 

4. Lastly, you can try searching the internet for DIY websites that show you how to do this. I think the Home Shopping Network sells a kit that shows you how to do this.

 

5. My best friend is an art teacher, I'll ask her if she knows how to go about doing this.

 

I don't know if any of this helps. Good luck!

I would think that you can provided that you go to page layout,select envelope, and enter the dimensions.

 

What program are you trying to use? Word, Publisher, Photoshop etc.

I am sure that you can - from Word you can go into word --tools - letters and mailings - envelopes and labels - from there click on options. scroll down to custom size and enter your envelope size.

 

that should work with some degree of trial and error for lining up the print.

If you are using Word, start a new document, go to the Tools menu & select Letters & Mailings, then Envelopes & Labels. There you can type in the return/delivery address (depending on which one you are working on) and then click the Options button. This is where you tell Word what size envelope you are using. You can create a custom size envelope if one of the options doesn't work with your particular size envelope.

 

After you've done the above, click "add to document" - the appropriate size area for your envelope should display. Now you can change the font, center it, whatever you need to do.

 

When you are ready to print, go to the File menu, Print...before you click OK, click on your Printer Properties and tell the printer what size you are printing on. Again, you can create a custom size if necessary.

 

I hope this helps. If not, post back!

Thanks for all the suggestions, guys! I don't think Word has 7 1/2 x 7 1/2, but I wasn't aware that you could customize the size. I want to print the return address on the back flap, so I don't know if it will work. Also, I wasn't aware that a printer would take envelopes as small as 3 5/8 x 5 1/8. I will try doing it through Word and if that doesn't work I will check out the websites (Martha Stewart, etc.) I'll let you know what happens!

Ditto, girls - was going to say the same thing. You should be able to put your envelopes through your printer. But if that's too hard, you could do what I did and just print out clear address labels and stick em' where you want them!

 

Also, for my address labels and the note cards I included with my STDs, I just downloaded the Avery template that I needed (Office Supplies - Office Products | Avery Official Website) and that made it so easy!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
