    Hi Boo:
    What kind of laser printer is it? Is it using colored toner? Solid ink? Some printers have different ink, that prints color differently. Or have you tried to change the settings of your printer according to the style of paper? Most printer settings allow you to set it to "glossy Paper" so it adjusts to that type of paper to keep the quality good. don't worry - it takes a few practice runs to get the print the way you want it. if it happens to plain paper, then it might be the printer settings.

        Thanks I guess I will keep on trying - I have switched to thicker plain paper, its not doing it as much, funny thing though I have a picture above, just some silly flags and such, with lime green, pink, orange colours, we choose the 'same' green colour for our text. The flags are printing the same way we see it on the computer but the text is much darker...weird.

        Happy planning!

                  And yes I get so excited for the mail to come everyday to see if we got an RSVP! : ) I'll be happy to help as much as I can for any of you who do these yourself, it is rewarding to hear all the comments from people when you do your invites yourself.
                  Okay! I have been looking and looking for invitations and until now, I didn't know exactly what I want. Please help me! I want to do these and have fun making them. How do I get started?
