Cardstock for Wedding Invites?

by DIY wedding planner on May 19, 2012

I’m getting married in July and have started thinking about wedding invites. I know I want to DIY and make everything on my own, but I was just wondering how I should get started. The biggest thing I need to know is where can I get my cardstock and should I have a professional printer (like Kinkos) do it, or should I use my home printer? I just need some basic ideas on how to get started I know the layout and pattern of my invites so there’s no worry there.

You can take them to Office Depot and they will copy them for you and also cut them. I do this with greeting cards that I make myself.

I’m just using the cardstock from Walmart that’s like $6 for 500 sheets for mine. I’m just printing them on my home computer. I’ve got it lucky, though, cartridges for my printer are only $20 for color cartridges. I should only go through 3 cartridges, so for 100 invites and rsvp cards, I will only be paying a $66.

I actually ended up buying holiday post cards (snowflakes). I printed them at home using my printer and they turned out really nice.
Just make sure you do a couple of sample test runs to make sure everything lines up correctly.
You can buy card stock at any Joann’s, Hobby Lobby or Micheal’s.
