As wedding season is quickly approaching, we hope that social distancing and COVID-19 will soon be over so that weddings can still proceed. Weddings are expensive, so why not save a bit of money on wedding invitations by printing your own?
If you’re looking to save a bit of money on your wedding invitations, a great way to do this is to print them at home on your own. Today we will be touching on programs and websites you can use to print your own high-quality wedding invitations.
First Things First: Ink
Before you even get into the design of your wedding invitations, ensure that you have high quality ink in your printer. If you are in need of ink (that is high quality) we can help! An important tip to remember about your ink, you must think about your ink usage when designing your invitations. Choose your colours carefully and try not to choose a full coloured background as this will take a lot of ink per invitation and you will almost certainly run out of ink quickly. Try to use a light-coloured background and put your colours in your text and graphics.
If you are printing your own wedding invitations from home, be sure you get proper card stock paper. Using regular printer paper just won’t cut it for professional looking invitations.
If you are looking for a free option, Canva is great. Canva allows you to design wedding invitations either from scratch or using one of their templates. Canva has hundreds of templates to choose from, as well as fonts, graphics, and photos that you may want to add to the invitations. Make sure you save the invitations as a “Print PDF”. This allows for the best printing quality.
If you already have Photoshop on your computer, this is a great option and allows you to do a lot more than Canva does. Photoshop, like Canva, offers many different template options to choose from. However, if you do not already have Photoshop, rather than spending money on the program, we recommend just sticking with Canva.
Greeting Island is a free alternative to Canva. Like Canva and Photoshop, Greeting Island has many different template options to choose from. If you aren’t sure exactly how you would like your wedding invitations to look, be sure to look through Canva and Greeting Island before making your decision. Like Canva, be sure to save your Greeting Island wedding invitations as “Print PDF” to allow for the highest printing quality.
