How The Printable Wedding Works

As you're making the arrangements for your big day, The Printable Wedding can help ensure that you can easily and affordably create customized wedding stationery.

Save Big with a Subscription to The Printable Wedding

Wedding planners typically recommend spending no more than 2% of your total wedding budget on invitations and other stationery needs. If you're working with limited funds, the easiest way to stick to this guideline is to create your own printable wedding invitations.

Taking into account your subscription to The Printable Wedding and the average cost of ink and paper, you can expect to spend less than $175 for 100 wedding invitations printed on quality cardstock. The average cost for 100 invitations at a design studio is estimated at over $1,000. At a brick and mortar stationery store, you'd spend about $700. That isn’t even including the additional costs for save-the-date cards, response cards, wedding programs, menus, powerpoint and scrapbooking templates – all things that are included as part of your subscription at The Printable Wedding!

Cost savings aside, printable wedding stationery eliminates waste since there are no minimum order requirements. You can print only the items you need, so you won't be stuck with boxes of unnecessary invitations long after your big day has passed.

Searching and Browsing

If you've already chosen your wedding colors, searching by color will give you a quick way to see options that fit your needs. For example, a search for "purple" results in over 600 wedding invitations and stationery item with colors ranging from pale lavender to deep plum.

If you're in the early stages of planning and don't have a particular color scheme in mind, click on the category links at the top of the page to browse through wedding invitations, wedding programs, wedding essentials, clip art, or wedding backgrounds. Each category is broken down into specific subcategories. For example, the wedding invitations category has subcategories for Christian, floral, beach, seasonal, and other unique invitations to help you find options that fit your needs.

When you see a design you like, click on the "Add to Favorites" button to save it to your account for future reference. This lets you easily compare your top choices when it's time to make a final decision.

Customizing Your Invitations

The wedding stationary from The Printable Wedding can be customized with your own text, photos, and design elements. You can choose to use matching invitations, RSVP cards, wedding programs, menus, and thank you cards or mix and match coordinating patterns. This gives you a level of creative control that you won't find anywhere else.

Printing Your Wedding Stationery

When printing your wedding stationery, you have two options: printing at home using high quality cardstock and your own inkjet or color laser printer or taking your invitations to a retail store offering copy and print services. Most brides choose to print their stationery at home, but professional printing may be a good option to consider if you're pressed for time and have many items that need to be printed quickly.

A Day to Remember

From save the date cards to wedding programs and thank you cards, The Printable Wedding makes it quick and easy to create customized printable wedding stationery.  When your wedding stationery perfectly conveys the look you want for your big day, you can feel confident that your walk down the aisle will be an unforgettable occasion.
