DIY seal and send wedding invitations are an excellent way to save money. You can make your own invitations easily.
Here is a good example of how to make DIY seal and send wedding invitations and make your wedding programs too.
Purchase a ream of 67# white card stock in tabloid size. Tabloid size is 11 x 17″. You may have to order this but it won’t be that expensive. You might check at the copy department of your local office supply store. Many times they have these sizes and will sell them to you.
Now once you have one ream of 11 x 17 card stock, you have 250 sheets of paper. If you need 200 invitations open the ream and ask them to cut half of it to 5 1/2 x 14 inches. You can get it cut to 15″ if you need the extra. Once you have those cut ask them to cut the other half to 8 1/2 x 11 inches.
This will give you approximately 250 sheets for you invitations and you can use the other 250 sheets for your wedding programs. Now you have two projects for one small cost. The rest will just be your ink and time.
Set up your invitations in a good word processing program. You can add graphics and use a nice font. This will make a very nice DIY seal and send wedding invitation. If you know how to make your data base you can even address them to match.
Print out one complete seal and send wedding invite. Now by using a tracing wheel you can add a perf to this card stock. That will allow your guests to tear a postcard RSVP off and mail it back to you. Now add two score lines with a bone folder and you have a cheap invitation that looks good. I bought a tracing wheel in the sewing section at Walmart for less than $2. I got the bone folder in the craft section for $4.
You will need to have a good ruler and straight edge method to get an even mark for you folds and perf. You can make dummy cards to line them up too. It really is easy to make your own DIY seal and send Wedding invitations.
Not only will you be able to make these with this idea, you can also get enough paper to make your wedding programs also. By making both your DIY seal and send wedding invitations and your wedding programs you will save more money. I am sure you will find another use for that money!
