Digital Templates - print your own wedding invitations

You can make great savings by printing your own wedding invitations. You can edit online after buying a template set from sites like ETSY, editing for FREE via Canva (thousands of images and lots of editing tools to create a unique item) and then download to print yourself or via another budget-friendly print service such as Printsoflove

After purchasing the above-mentioned templates from Etsy, you will automatically receive a PDF doc to your email. This document includes a link to CANVA, where you can sign up for a free account and begin editing your templates. I have included two PDF documents with some basic editing and downloading instructions so that you can get started right away. The tools provided by Canva are extremely equivalent to those provided by other image editing software suites. You can alter the template's size, change the colors, change the font type, and add images and graphics using the extensive menu that they provide.

If you want to print your wedding invitation, you can save it as a PDF file when you download it, but you can also save it as a PNG or JPG file if you want to send it via email or text message instead. If you choose to send your wedding invitations via email, not only will you save money on printing and postage, but you will also reduce the amount of paper that is wasted. Many guests are now willing to accept invitations in the form of digital or online evites; however, you shouldn't forget about those guests who still value paper invitations as mementos, or who attach them to their refrigerators as a visible reminder, etc. In the event that you choose to print the invitations on your own, a light card weight for printed invitations is 300gsm.  Printsoflove is our printing partner should you wish to have them printed professionally at budget prices.

Digital Online Invitations - Evites 

There are many advantages to sending wedding invitations over the internet. To begin, let's have a conversation about the financial side of things. It won't cost you a dime to send digital invitations the vast majority of the time. You can still save money by sending out paper invitations, even if you choose to send out digital invitations to your guests (as we mentioned above with our own selection of budget flyer wedding invitations). Stationery items such as save the dates, information cards, and RSVP cards are just some of the stationery items that many engaged couples choose to send via digital online invitations and evites.  The use of paper can be reduced thanks to invitations sent electronically. As a chic, design-focused, and up-to-date alternative to traditional stationery, online wedding invitations and planning websites have become increasingly popular in recent years. Online invitations, also known as "e-invitations," are perfectly acceptable for the vast majority of contemporary weddings however, they may not be the best choice for a more traditional wedding or one in which guests value the sentimental aspect of paper wedding invitations and want to keep them as mementos of the day. If this is the case, paper invitations may be a better option.

How to make your own online wedding invitations

Websites like Canva offer a wide variety of free templates that can be modified to suit your needs if you are just starting out in the world of design. You can use the site's editing tools to design a custom wedding invitation, which you can then save and download as a PNG or JPG file, ready to be sent via email or text message to your guests.
