The invitations are easy to print. They come with practice sheets so you don't have to worry about messing up an invitation. My one complaint is that they don't come with extra envelopes in case you make a mistake on the envelope. If you have a good printer, this is much cheaper than going professional with wedding invitations. Because I have a filter on my computer, it would not let me pull up the website that they recommend you go to in order to help make the invitations look professional. I just went to Microsoft Word and designed it myself. I found that the font French Script MT went excellent with the invitation pattern. For the price, I am pleased with how they came out.
After reading the other reviews I went to my local Wal-mart and found them which was great because site-to-store takes quite a while. So I would suggest checking with your local Wal-Mart before ordering online. Also they have a variety of wedding items that match the double heart theme.
As for the actual printing of the invitations. It took me a trial or two of each to get the hang of it before I printed my invitations. I fed everything in one at a time because my printer has a tendency to pick up more than one sheet at a time so if your printer isn't great I'd recommend this method, particularly with the smaller envelopes.
Tips for printing: My set did not come with instructions on how to find the template but if you google "wilton wedding invitations template" you should find it easily. You need to have Microsoft Word on your computer. I don't but luckily my fiancee did. Once you have everything in the templates you have to change the settings on your printer so that it knows how to print your invitations. You want to go to Print-> Properties-> Features and then change the paper size to custom. Change the measurement to inches and set the page size to:
Invitation: 5.5 width x 8.5 length
Invitation Envelope: 4.75 width x 6.37 length
Response Card: 5.5 width x 8.5 length
Response Card Envelope: 4.37 width x 5.75 length
(measurements in inches)
Once you put in the size of the sheet and save it you have to exit out of the print screen and go back in to select it.
if you are wondering why the response cards and invitations are the same size its because the response cards are two on a sheet that is perforated so after you print you can tear them apart. Don't worry its an extremely clean tear and there is absolutely no signs that it was ever perforated.
We bought these because we ran out of our fancy printed ones and to be honest these are almost as nice (minus the raised printing you get if you order them from a specialty printer and the lined inner envelopes) For $19 plus tax these are really a steal and an elegant way to save some money.
The Wilton Crystal Cake and Knife Server set was very cheaply priced and my fiance' and I were very pleased with its apperance and quality! For all of you out there that are on a budget and are planning some sort of special occasion I would definitely recommend you buy this product. This is how I see it...no one is going to care what you cut or serve a cake with, ask you how much you paid for it, nor will they go up and admire it, so save yourself or your parents some money, because this is truly a nice product!
These invitations were beautiful. I used the Wilton Print web site and these were so easy to do. You just type in your product number and the templates for your invitation are right there---you can customize any way you choose. I made sure my printer was set to special paper, best quality print. I printed 5 invitations at a time, grabbing each one when it came out of the printer and spreading them out. Then I stacked them before I did the next batch. I didn't want to take a chance on the ink being damp and having them smudged. One suggestion I have on printing is to load an extra card but only print 5. This keeps from having a grab mark from the roller on the last card. The invitations looked like they had come from a professional print shop. It's easy to do the envelopes too. What a time saver. We saved over a hundred dollars.
I returned them. I was going to use these as wedding favors. Extremely small and very cheap looking. I would think by the picture that label would be in lavender, but it was bright orange-yellow. I would not recommend purchasing these.
