pocket-fold invitation/STD- printer for inserts?

Recommended Posts

I did a search for this and didn't find anything, so I apologize if there's already a thread.


I'm going to do pocket-fold STD's but I want to have the inserts printed and assemble the whole thing myself. Does anyone know of a good printer who will do this for me? I'm going to try to design them myself but if I get too frustrated I might have the vendor do it for me. Any suggestions?? I'm up for any ideas.

kate, i bought my pocketfolds from cardsandpockets.com, and on their website you can buy pre-cut inserts but you have to print them yourself. i found that designing them myself in powerpoint and then printing 3 per sheet and cutting myself was the easiest way to go, (actually jason designed the map one), but i did use the measurements they listed for their inserts for designing and cutting them, so i knew how big/long to make each one.


also, i'm thinking kinkos may be a big help if you design your own and have them print them for you.. maybe go there and ask a bunch of questions first?


i did the signature size, and made the inserts 3.5" wide, they fit perfect in the 4" pocket of this size, i was able to fit 3 inserts on each 8 1/2"x11" sheet of cardstock.

I don't think there is a link addressing the printing issue specifically. So this is definitely a good question. I haven't started mine yet, but I did put this thread up about a couple of really good sites for diy pocketfold invites. The first one tells you how to do it, however, it is in Publisher. The other I don't recall what it specifically said since I wasn't making the actual folder (that website shows how to make the folder too).


But, if you don't have Publisher and the second site doesn't say. I can only suggest printing 2 inserts on one sheet of 8 1/2 x 11 paper and test how it comes out. The website for Cards and Pockets suggest you can use 3.5" wide or 4.75" wide inserts. So if you did the 3.5" you should be able to get 2 on one sheet. I hope this is a little help for you. Good Luck! I'll search around and see if I can find something for you just in case!

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
