What a gong show situation this has been. I have been stressing over how to get these invitations done. Do I print them off at home? Take them somewhere to have them printed? Should I just scrap my original idea and get a generic type card from Michael's and go that route? I just didn't know and it was getting stressful.
See my idea for my wedding invitation was to do a picture card. But I didn't just want a flat card, I wanted a folded card, so then I started playing around with Microsoft Publisher. They have all kinds of pre-formatted cards to use and you just insert your text and pictures to create your card. I found one I really liked except the card when folded had what I thought was the inside on the outside. So the interior of the card was blank but it had the pictures on both the outside folds. Then I looked into using Vista Print online. I have used them for my business cards and they did a great job. The only problem with them is that they only offer a 4x6 folded card and I wanted ours to be a bit bigger. Then I looked onto Costco's website. I always print my pictures at Costco so I thought maybe they would have something and THEY DID!!! They had a 5x7 folded card. After some working with Creative Memories and then inserting them into the card layout on Costco's website I have my wedding invitation done.
