Getting your invitations off the screen, onto paper and into envelopes is pretty easy but if you've never done it before, here's a quick step by step for getting perfect invitations in a snap!
1. Print your invitations:
You can have your file printed at any local print shop like Kinkos, or Staples just make sure you ask for a heavier paper. The quality is usually excellent and a reasonable cost.
If printing at home, I recommend using good quality white card stock. It can be found at any craft store or places like Walmart and Staples. Here's a step by step to get them printed:
• Open your invitation PDF file in Adobe Acrobat Reader (the jpeg you would use at a photo developer or for an emailed invitation). If you don't have Reader on your computer you can download it free here (Mac's do not have it by default).
• Go to File > Print
• Enter the number of copies you want to print
• Under 'page size and handling' select ' actual size.
• Hit 'Print' and watch your invitations roll off the press!
2. Cut your invitations:
The PDF version of your invitations has crop marks (those skinny little lines at the corners) which mark where you need to trim your invitations to the correct size. Since it is much easier to show than explain, i've created a little video to explain how to properly cut with crop marks below:
