So I went to do a test print at kinkos and my cursive font that I downloaded online and used for our names and titles didn't print in the right font. The guy wasn't sure why and even when he printed it behind the counter and pulled it up on his computer it looked different from what it looked like on my laptop. Anyone have problems with this? I wonder if staples will print it correctly, but just wondering if anyone had this issue.

 

My only thought would be if their computer and/or program at kinkos doesn't have this font you are using.

Did you download this font off the internet and install on your computer?

Just a thought, otherwise I am not sure...sorry!

@helenk - Did you save it as a PDF?  If the computer at Kinkos or Staples doesn't have your font choices, it'll print as something else. I usually print from PDF to make sure the fonts and spaces are the way I want them

    Yes I agree. You'll need to save as pdf since you downloaded a special font.

    I so wish I had the guts to try something like this. I am SO not crafty and I mean that. I'm thinking just to go the website that someone mentioned and have them do them for me. I only need like 10 so that's nothing.

     

    Yours turned out beautifully. I love the colours!

    These turned out great!  Seeing everyone on her have such success with their DIY projects is making me feel like maybe I can do it too...

    Ok so I had them printed and told the guy I wanted them cut. Silly me I thought he would cut into the exact outline of the invites but he just cut them into squares. We tried trimming at home, we bought x-acto knives and corner cutters and everything but around the smaller corners they look like a kindergartner cut them lol! How did you ladies cut your invites?

    It wasn't weird having them printed like that with the lines but not cut out? Bc I'm seriously over trying to trim them! Lol. I cut the RSVPs and I punched holes in them so I can add a little ribbon I bought to make them look more like a luggage tag but the invites are killing me! Ugh. I'll post pics.

    It was a pain in the tush, but I found the easiest way was to get a tiny pair of scissors, almost like the nail cuticle scissors, and cut the corners. We also had a corner punch that worked well for the one end, but the 'rip off' end would not work with the corner punch.
