what is the benefit of digital printing and what do I need to do?
Not only is digital printing an easy option, it is also much more affordable. You choose the design you want, I customize, email to you…and you print.
What you need…to view, edit and print files:
1. You will need a computer to view the files.
2. You will need to research where you would like to print each file (i.e. Your House, Staples, Office Max, Kinkos). If pricing is more than you expected to print yourself, you can contact me at anytime and I can print these for you. I print on 100# thick specialty papers in 12 different textures.
3. You can have them professionally cut, buy a paper cutter on sale at Hobby Lobby and do it yourself, or find a friend or business that already has a large paper cutter you can borrow.
4. You will need to purchase envelopes
Digital Files can be purchased individually at $20 per card or you can purchase a whole invitation suite which includes
Three digital files: Invitation, Save the Date, & R.S.V.P. card
Invitation file size: 5×7, Save the date & RSVP file size: 3.5 x 5
Cards can be made another size for a small fee, just let me know and I can customize them for you.

**All files will be in PDF or JPEG format. Please make sure your computer can open these.
what types of card stock and papers can I choose from?
I offer many lines of card stock for your designs to be printed on…and they are all the highest quality of papers from classic crest. The higher the (#)number the thicker the card stock. (The bamboo and cotton are the exceptions to this as they are not made from trees, they are the equivalent of 100# weight paper…which is still very thick…and our standard printing weight.)
