Have you seen the FREE wedding invitation templates popping up around the web?
The free wedding invitation templates I have seen can be very pretty, lots of vibrant colors, lovely detailed script. Super – so what’s the downside, maybe there isn’t one? Let’s look closer at this ‘free’ wedding invitation option. How ‘free’ is it really?
Free wedding template on your computer that you can input your wedding details to, print at leisure or take to the printers to be printed at your leisure.
How are your IT skills?
To edit this free wedding invitation template you will need some basic design skills and the required design program. The template designs cannot be adjusted in any way and you are restricted to the exact layout and wording as shown on the template. If you wish to remove or add something that is included on the template – you can’t.
You could get around this by investing in some software that you CAN edit to suit your needs.
What printer do you have?
Once you have sourced the quality card (a trip to the local craft store) required for wedding invitations and the envelopes you need a printer that is robust and advanced enough to deal with the card thickness, the colors and the volume! I don’t have a printer like this do you? Mine is pretty standard.
Off to the printers then …
If you go this route, please go by recommendation! This is by no means a guaranteed route to quality or efficiency. You MUST see proofs before giving the go ahead and check for typos – there are inevitably some. Now add in the cost of travel and time going to and from the printers and of course the end product. We hope you like it, there are no returns!
Conclusion: VERY impractical, time-consuming and expensive when you add in your car fuel, parking fees, card and envelope costs, printing , perhaps buying the required software. It’s definitely NOT a cheap option.
