this paper cant be easily torn with a deckle edge ruler, if you need to print two to a page, then it would probably be better to use a deckle edge ruler on all sides unfortunately...

    that's okay, at least I know it's possible. I'm getting them printed next week and then i''ll get the deckle edge ruler thing. :)

      we put a metal ruler against the spot where we wanted to rip b/c i couldn't find a torn edge thing like that, and i couldn't get pre-torn paper b/c it wouldn't have fit in the bottle. took FOREVER. do ANYTHING but that...

        I've been MIA --- those were my menus --- I used a deckle ruler --- it was super-easy, don't be worried! I printed the menus two to a page, two. Trust me --- all you need is to practice on a couple of blank pages to get the hang of things and you'll be set. You'll pretty quickly figure out where you need to line the ruler up based on the text of the page. The ruler I used was cheap --- maybe $5. I got it at Michaels!

          Ooops ... just read Lauren's post ---- I should note that I only had to do 40 menus ... it didn't take long ... how many are you doing?

            we printed 4 to a page, but had to do the outer edges as well. we did a total of 60? 70? invites...(how quickly i've forgotten)
