    Hi Girls,


    I noticed a lot of people were printing their invites on their own.  I know some were using vista print.  I wanted to know if you all have recommendations on where to print invites?  Did you use an online service?  A neighborhood service?  Did you have to resize everything?  Anyone use their own printer?  Any advice would be great.

      Hi Kate, My Fsil is going to make my invitations and she uses a regular printer. She's a graphic designer so she knows how to make things look special. Especially if it's for her brother's wedding! :) She's been making invitations for a while now. Makes beautiful stuff. I know if she needs papers cut I believe she goes to a store and they cut it for her and they charge her per cut. But it's still cheaper than having them made. Depending on how elaborate you want them. There's a whole bunch of forums which tell you how to make invitations. See if you like any :) Maritza

        I wouldn't use my own printer - try a local print shop, or a Staples. The local print shop may cost a little more, but at least they know what they are doing.

          I've read people take the file down to the store (Staples) on a memory stick and get it printed there.

            I use my home printer. It was a cheap printer that came with my computer as a promotion. I've hard a big share of printers though and I used to do a lot of home printing for my business. As long as you know how to set the proper settings they do the trick :)

            For the one I have now, it prints up to letter size (8.5x11). If I'm printing on cardstock I have to feed it through the back opening so that it goes through straight and I make sure to set the right paper and feed settings on the print options.

                Yeah, I was toying with the idea of printing at home, but it sounds easier (and cheaper in the long run) to just have some of the stuff printed for me.

                    We need to buy a new printer for our house, so I'm going to try printing at home. If its really that bad I'll go to a store, but I've done invitations at home before & everything has come out fine. Just make sure you have enough ink!
