Tips for Printing Your Free Wedding Invitations
Now that you have free printable mason jar invitations that you can use and download, here are tips you need to know when printing wedding invitations.
Be Detailed When Customizing
As you’re editing the wording and finalizing your design, be sure to run it past multiple sets of eyes before you hit the print button to avoid any mistakes. It is so easy to make a typo and you want your invitations to be perfect.
Free but Professional
Just because you’re taking the DIY route, doesn’t mean you should settle for less. Make your invitations look hot off the professional press. Try using a paper trimmer to cut your invitations so that they are neat and clean. You can find my favorite paper trimmer here.
Choose Your Paper
When it comes to wedding invitation paper, you should opt for something other than regular thin printer paper. Generally, the thicker the paper, the more luxurious the feel. You might even consider using something with a bit of texture like a linen paper or one with a felt texture. You will want to make sure that the paper will run through your printer, however. Do a test run before ordering a huge amount.
Plan Your Ink Usage
You’ve likely thought about how much the paper will cost, but ink costs money too. Things like a colored background will use a lot of ink and increase the cost of your DIY invitations. Try services like HP Instant Ink to reduce the cost of the overall project.
If you’re printing at home, make sure all of your equipment is working properly and you get the quality you are looking for when printing. Home printers also tend to be a shade or two darker than what appears on your screen. Do a test run and consider using the highest quality print setting on your printer. This will use more ink but will yield a better result. You can find my recommendation for a home printer here.
Printing your own invitations may be more affordable than having them printed by a pro, but it may not be faster. There’s also a chance that it may be more stressful. Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to print and trim all of the invitations you will need.
Go with a Print Shop
You may consider outsourcing the printing to a print shop. Download your file then send it to a quality printer. Make sure you choose a print shop that can properly accommodate you and understand your requirements. Quality doesn’t necessarily mean expensive, so if you can choose a printing shop that provides quality service at an affordable price, all the best! I personally have order invitations from VistaPrint and loved them!
