Invitation Meltdown....I think I'm going to cry....

Recommended Posts

I agree with a few of the others- what program did you create them in? Illustrator and InDesign both allow you to convert the fonts to outlines so you don't need to supply the font- or change it. Let me know if you have any questions- I'm a mac gal! : )

sounds like something went wrong when creating the pdf ... your proportions shouldn't change at all, and your fonts should be embedded (if they were properly embedded, it wouldn't matter whether it was mac or pc, because the pdf is basically one image). i don't know what program you used or how you converted it, so i can't be much help.

 

if you have photoshop, and the pdf looks ok on your end, try opening the pdf in photoshop, flattening the image and saving it as a tiff or eps file (be sure to save it as a copy with a different file name, because once flattened, it will no longer be editable). then your file, fonts and all, will be just a single image, and anyone should be able to print it.

we designed ours on a MAC but we found a professional printer to do it. It wasn't just a printing house, it was someone who was set up to do that type of printing. I would do a bit of research on the internet on "printing press" in your area, and just call them to find out what they can or can't do.

I would suggest finding a local printer. I was considering Staples as well, but for 48c per side of a coloured sheet, I though it wasn't worth it. I found a local printer (through google) that was fantabulous and 14c cheaper than staples!

Most local printers will be more flexible with fonts, the guy I used did not have the tropicalBV font, but he ask that I just send it to him, so it worked out great!

Don't cry - this is salvageable!

 

Call around to find a professional printer who can print them for you. Explain that you have the paper and that you have created the job already. You should be able to find someone - most designers use MAC's anyway.

 

Good luck!

The pdf solved my font issues (I used almost only downloaded fonts).

 

If saving them to a pdf does not work, can't you try saving them to a jpeg, and then resizing to the exact size using photoshop elements or another similar software ?

I agree with what others have said about wanting to know what program you used. There's several ways we can work around this... I've worked in the print industry so I know quite a bit about getting stuff ready to print. If you want to pick my brain feel free to contact me!

 

As a side note, most actual print houses operate with Macs so they would definitely be able to work through your problem as well. :)

I would check online to see if you could find a program that could make it Microsoft compatible. I agree with the other poster about possibly printing them yourself....I lucked out yesterday and picked up a color laser for more than 50% off (Office Depot).

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
