How to print and assemble wedding invitations

Filed Under: wedding, papercraft

wedding invitationWeddings are so fun, but for the bride and groom, getting prepared for their special day can be a hassle. It is quite a feat to pull off a wedding without a hitch.

Although it is exhilarating to pick out flowers, the hall, the chapel, and those you've chosen to be in your wedding party, it can get a little frustrating to agree on all aspects of the day.

You can take the hassle out of choosing your wedding invitations with an awesome instructable that teaches how to print and assemble multi-layered wedding invitations.


ean5 used vellum and handmade paper that was part of a wedding invitation kit, but had to add a middle paper when she learned that, according to Kinko's and Staples, she couldn't print on handmade paper or vellum.

To be friendly to the environment, ean5 used one sheet of paper to print out 2 invitations, then printed the pages out at Kinko's because they trimmed the paper to the correct size she needed. When doing this easy invitation project at home, you can use a paper cutter to achieve your correct size. Use a hole punch to make the holes in the top of the pages and some pretty ribbon to bind the pages together.

Back in September, I wrote a wedding invitation post, complete with some cool links to check out pertaining to various sites and tips to help you through choosing your handmade wedding invitations. M.E. Williams directed us to free templates for cards, envelopes and boxes. In any case, you can stop your head from spinning on wedding day decisions; we have you covered!

    It is a very important factor to keep in mind when making your own wedding invitations, that some paper and card stock do not go through your home printer or that of your local stationery store or copy store.

    Also, certain climates cannot withstand vellum and will curl up before you even get a chance to get your invites assembled.

    There are however, lots of wedding invitation kits available now for the do it yourself brides which makes the overwhelming stress of weddings a little bit easier to deal with.

    There are hundreds of easy ways to make your own wedding invitations that look both professional and stunning. You can use high quality papers and envelopes to give a real premium finish too.

    Most of the printing can be done on your home printer, it just takes a bit of experimentation. You can even print on vellum, as long as it's not printed vellum. Just use the 'draft' setting and make sure you don't allow the sheets of vellum to stack on top of one another as the ink will smudge. Instead, lay them out separately and give them plenty of time to dry.

    I get great results even on printed vellum when I wipe it first with a nifty little thing called the Perfect Printing Pouch ( http://www.scraperfect.com ). It makes the ink dry REALLY fast and the words come out looking just amazing. The directions say to use it on normal ink settings--NOT draft because on draft there's a lot less ink applied and the writing wouldn't be as dark. It's a really impressive little product!
