You purchased a printable invitation, now what?
Printing at home is easy. Just use one of the methods below.
The weights or thickness of paper can be confusing. A “cover stock” is thicker than “index” or “text” weight paper. For best results, try white or cream colored paper in 80 pound (80#) cover stock or 100 pound (100#) cover stock. Most inkjet printers can handle 80# cover stock and many can even print on 100# cover. If you have a rear feeder on your printer, you can probably go with the heavier weight.
Many online stores offer samples to test in your printer before you invest in large quantities. Try www.paperandmore.com for great paper and samples.
Open your edited file when you are ready to print and click on the printer icon to open the printer properties box. Choose the correct orientation-landscape (sideways) or portrait (up and down), and paper size. Make sure that you have unchecked the option for page scaling. Set your printer to “Best” printing quality.
You can print a jpeg as a photo from your home printer, on pre-cut 5x7 paper. Or, you can print using the pdf at home with two invitations on an 8.5 x 11” sheet of paper and cut the invitations out after printing.
