For my friend, she was lucky enough to call me fairly early in this process and I filled her in all of the bad news. Fortunately, she was able to avoid most of the headaches and return the DIY kit to the store to get her money back.
I also gave her some recommendations on how to go about getting her invitations done. I told he what I tell everyone, go to Etsy.com! Seriously, this is literally the secret to having nice invitations and not spending a fortune. The best part is, it doesn’t stop with just wedding invites! You can birthday, baby shower, bridal shower, bachelor party, and any other type of invitation you’d ever need.
How is this you ask? Simple! There are 100’s of very talented graphic designers with stores on Etsy. You can search a wide variety of themed invitations and purchase predesigned layouts where the artist will customize the order just for your event. Once customized, the artist will send you a printable pdf file that you can email to your local print shop (I’m partial to On The Go Prints) and they will print and cut your cards for you. Most will even be able to provide you with envelopes, we certainly do.
Give it a shot and let me know what you think. I’m guessing you will use this service for more than just your wedding! It’s just too easy and the designs are just too perfect not too!
