but I did have a quick question for you. From the instructions you posted it seemed like you printed these yourself, and I was wondering how many you made, and about how much ink it took.

I'm worried about bringing this to a copy place, because I didn't have the best of luck with the staff, and this would be much more complicated with cardstock and regular weight paper, and everything being double sided. buuut, on the other hand I am going to have to print about 100 of these babies, and that is sounding like a lotta ink.

thanks!!! :)

Hi Aimee:

I printed mine on the color laser printer at the office.

I printed 60 of them, and didn't have to change the cartridge out. But then, I think the color laser cartriges are good for about 5,000 sheets. One thought would be to strip the background color out and either go with a white background or actually print them on colored paper or patterned paper. That will save a ton of ink.

Let me know if that helps!

    Thanks for the speedy reply! It definitely helps! I think i'll look into a patterned paper that is double sided, and try to cut down on pages as much as possible. I think that printing them myself might just be the way to go about this project.

    ...not to mention it's a really great excuse to buy a new printer. haha.

    thanks!!

        they are flourishes. If you go to MS clip art gallery (google it), and search for key words flourish, or scroll, you'll find tons of options.

              Thank you, Becks for the wonderful templates! I have been searching and searching for templates and it always brings your templates on google but was not a member then, so I decided to be a part of this wonderful forum.

                I have a question though? May I know what printer you used for your invites and papers (cover and inserts) if you do not mind?

                Thanks in advance!
