Question for anyone doing DYI invites with cards and pockets supplies
Posted 28 August 2009 - 07:18 AM
I've done numerous searches on here for a similar thread and wasn't able to find anything so please forgive me if this has already been posted.
A few months back I purchased all the invitation supplies needed to complete my pocket fold invites. We've designed them and have them ready to print (we're using the pre-cut cardstock that we ordered from Cards and Pockets), however everytime we try and print on the inserts or invitations themselves they come out crooked! We've tried 2 different printers now and get the same result despite having properly formatted the print settings.
We've tried FedEx Kinkos and some local invitation ships however nobody seems to be able to print on our custom sized cardstock. (they say the paper size is too small for their printers and they would only be able to print them if we had multiple invitations on one sheet). I'm just wondering how others have gone about printing on the smaller pieces?
We're getting down to crunch time now, I need to get these invites printed and out the door. Does anyone have any suggestions? Alternatively, if anyone has any templates for the Signature style pocket invites that I could print multiple invites on- I may end up having to go that route.
Thanks in advance!

Oh, and if you end up going the multiple invite per page route, I did mine in Publisher, but I'm not sure if it is the same size as yours. I made my pockets folds myself so the dimensions might be different. If you want to take a look at it though, to see if you can adjust things then just pm me with your email and I can send you the file.
My invites are on the forum here if you want to take a look, I don't know how to put in links but I think the title is Jules DIY Pocket Fold Invites.

Your best option might be to take some regular pages, print a line down them as a guide and tape your inserts to them and run them through the printer. Not great, but better than crooked.

Jules, thanks for offering to share your template. I'll PM you my e-mail. If you can send it to me, that would be great.
