2. Print Your Invite

To get some top advice on printing those gorgeous invites we spoke to Lizzie, of Connie and Joan She gave us her top tips for printing your invites. Here’s what Lizzie had to say:

Lizzie from Connie and Joan, Printable Wedding Invitations | Downloadable Wedding Invitations“ There are different types of DIY wedding stationery available. Some sellers provide PDF templates. Personally I prefer to offer Word documents. Word documents offer far more flexibility with the images and fonts. Word allows you to; change colours, move and resize images shapes, and text.

With PDF’s there are far less options, you can only use the fixed fields and type a line of text, but that is about it!

When you’re done editing your Word document files, save them as a PDF to preserve the document. PDF documents give you more printing options.  All commercial printers prefer PDF files to print from.  It’s very easy to save your Word doc as a PDF – you just go to ‘File’, ‘Save As’ and choose ‘PDF’ from the options under format/type.

Of course, you would only save it as a PDF after you’ve finished editing.  If you find you need to make further changes later on, you’ll need to do that on the Word document, and then save as PDF again.

Once you’ve saved the file as a PDF, you are ready to upload them to a printing website, such as printed.com or vista print.com or email them to your local printers. However, you might find using a local printer a better option as you can discuss various options with them, like paper and different card quantities, you might even be able to take them your own paper to print on – and they probably won’t cost that much more.

I love that brides use my templates. They often tell me how great it is to be able to make last minute changes themselves. This is key as changes are inevitably required when planning a wedding! “

Lizzie’s top tips for printable wedding stationery

  • Research your printing options:  At home/office, online or at a local printers.
  • Envelopes – you can buy them separately, but make sure they will look nice with the paper  you’re using.
  • Use paper that is at least 200gsm in weight.
  • Printing at home? Check your printer’s manual to make sure your printer can handle the paper you’re thinking of printing on.
  • Save your Word document as a PDF for online or commercial printing.

3. Pimp up your invites

You can also make those invites really look the part with lots of accessories. You can pimp up your invites with gorgeous wedding envelopes and wedding stamp designs. We found a great selection of unique stamps and designs on Etsy to personalise your invites.

A bit about Lizzie

I’ve always loved designing, creating and computers!  I was a web designer for the Press Association some years back, where I designed and maintained the Royal Family’s online magazine ‘Royal Insight’ and some of their other websites.  In 2014 I opened an Etsy shop.  I didn’t really have an idea what I was going to sell, but I wanted to get involved with Etsy.  I put some designs ‘out there’ and it soon became apparent that with my love of art and technology, coupled with what customers were telling me, I could provide creative wedding stationery templates to help lower the cost of a wedding a little bit.  The templates are easy to use but they also come with instructions if required, and I encourage people to contact me should they need any assistance. I am now also offering printed stationery based on the same designs, for those who don’t have much time to DIY.
