    So I decided to try to be creative and make my own bridesmaid invitations. I brought really pretty cards from Michaels, and got home and realized I don't know how to print on A2 sized cards. For you ladies who have done DIY invitations, did you use a particular software? How did you print/design the invites? Did you use a template for the size card. Please help, I'm already getting frustrated and wishing I had brought the cards ready made.

      Flores the easiest way to print on A2 paper is to go into your paper setting and set the size of the paper. If it doesn't have the size that you want you can click on the customize button and put in the specific paper size and hit ok. The blank sheet on the page should be the size that you want. Then you can run a couple of trials to make sure that you have the size and that all of your typing is centered on your card. I usually cut a few blank sheets to the size of the card and use those as tryout sheets. Hope this helps.

          Don't get frustrated, you can do this! Ditto to setting your own paper size. If you have a PC, I recommend just sticking to using software that you are comfortable with like word or powerpoint. Also, cut some plain white paper to the size of your cards and run test prints on them so you don't waste your good cards. Feel free to post your docs on here to get some advice and input if you want to :o)
