Printable invitation files offer a simple and affordable way to get customized invitations without sacrificing style. The process is quite simple-you pick a design and send us the information you would like on your invitation and we send you a file that you can print right on your home computer/printer, without any fancy software or special equipment. Not into printing yourself? You can also take your file to a printer or photo center and let them do it for you.

*What supplies are needed to print at home?
You will need 8.5 x 11 card stock paper, a printer, envelopes and a paper trimmer or scissors.
*I'm not very computer savvy, is it easy to print at home?
Yes! All you have to do is print the .pdf on regular size heavy paper. The invitations and other items can be set up two on a page and have trim lines to cut along. It really is as easy as print and cut! Or, you can bring your files on a flash drive to Staples or Kinkos and have them print and cut it for you.
You can also have your invitations printed as photos. This option is very economical and can be done at your favorite photo printer online or in store.

*Why do the colors look different on the screen compared to when I print the invitations?
Colors will vary depending on your monitor settings and the way your file is printed. Also, I use RGB colors in my invitations. Some printers use a different color profile and will have to convert the colors resulting in slight variations.
*How many rounds of editing will you do?
I will revise your file to fix our errors (typos, etc.) Please proofread your text carefully and send it to me just as you would like it printed. I do not edit your text. I may adjust line breaks when necessary to fit on the invitation and fix an obvious error, but you must provide print ready text, for the most part. Include all information at one time. Adding reply dates, and other information after the final proof has been made changes the layout and the invitation may have to be reformatted. This will incur an additional fee of $5.00.
*Can you send me a proof before I order?
It takes time for me to design each invitation and personalize it with your colors and text. Proofs are only sent after the item is ordered and paid for.
*Where can I buy envelopes and what size do I need?
5” x 7” invitations use A7 size envelopes. 4” x 6” photo invitations use size A6 . You can buy them in most office supply stores, craft stores and online paper retailers. 5.5 x 4.25 Thank you cards use an A2 envelope.
*How do I send you my photo?
If your invitation has a photo option, email your photo to jancyule [!at] gmail.com. Photos must be 300 dpi or greater.
By sending me photos, you assume all responsibility for the use of the photos. You are responsible for obtaining appropriate permissions for use of the photos, if applicable.
