so i'm getting ready to get my invites together, but i have a few questions when it comes to printing the images.


what's the best format?


i've heard .tif files are best for printing.


cmyk is better than rgb.


what about resolution? is 200dpi okay?


any help would be great.

I know that .psd or .pdf are better than .jpgs, but I'm not sure about tiffs. (pdf=adobe reader & psd= photoshop)


CMYK is better. If you don't have a converter, PM me & I'll convert it for you.


300 dpi is ideal. I've printed photobooks with 200dpi & 175dpi & they looked fine. I would think with text it would be OK. If possible though, make them 300dpi.

My only thought is that if you're having it printed at Kinko's or wherever, and you have any special fonts, definitely put it in a PDF. Otherwise everything gets all ooky when it is loaded on a different computer.

300 dpi (or ppi) is optimal, but in terms of file type it depends on how they're being printed

for invites my guess would be that they would use the four-color printing process (CMYK)


but I would call your printer and ask for their specs just to be sure :)

    • 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.
