DIY Jewish Wedding Invitations FAQ
Do I have to be crafty to do this?
Definitely not, our simple instructions help you with every step. Included is a materials list and tips on how to avoid mistakes people commonly make with their invitations.
What if I love a design but want to change the color?
ModernTribe can create a custom template for you. If you found one that you love, but your wedding colors are different, for $19 we can match the colors to yours. Within the template, however, you are already able to easily change the text color, size and font to anything you choose.
May I change the font?
Yes. You can the suggested font within the sample text, or you can use any font on your computer. You are also able to change the color and size of the text yourself when you type your wording into the template.
What kind of materials do I need?
Each of our templates comes with a materials list and instructions. All our invitations are formatted and designed to print out two invitations on standard 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. With this freedom, you can enter any paper supply store, large or small, and find the type of paper you want, Paper Source is one of our favorite resources. The invitations and RSVP also fit into standard square or A7 and A2 envelopes respectively, which are just as easy to find. Being standard-sized, hundreds of styles of paper are available to you and any desktop printer will be able to print them easily.
What are the advantages of doing my own wedding invitations or wedding stationery?
The biggest advantage is saving money! You can have beautiful invitations for a fraction of the cost of custom printed invitations.
How many are you going to need?
Once you start working on your guest list, it\'s very common to discover you need more than you thought, which again adds to the expense of a custom order. With our templates, you can easily print as many extras as you need. Even if you decide to have your invitations printed, that\'s not the end of it. You\'re still going to want or need wedding programs, menus, place cards, table numbers and favor tags, all of which are an additional expense. If you print your own, you can have as many of these items as you want, when you want them. You can also get a personalized, custom look because you are able to dress them up as much or as simply as you like using crystals, ribbon charms or colored backing papers.
