As you make your wedding invitations, stop and look. Are your graphics and decorations taking over one side while leaving the other side blank? If so, then your invitation is off_balance. You don't have to put the same things on each side, but you can make sure that each side has the same "heaviness." Shape and size. Wedding invitations come in all shapes and sizes. Invitations can be long, squared, circle, wide, top fold, side fold, accordion fold, booklet and many more. When making your own wedding cards, you may not want to choose a difficult size and shape. Otherwise, you and whomever you've asked to help you make your invitations are going to spend days just cutting, gluing and folding. Instead, choose simple shapes and sizes that you can add texture, balance, color and decorations to. This will lessen the anxiety and frustration.
Making DIY invitations or printable invitations requires a lot of patience. This is the time when you will find out that patience is indeed a virtue. When creating the wedding invitations of your dreams, you will find that often times you and your helpers will encounter many challenges. You will also find that the computer programs you use may make it hard for you to create and print the printable invitations from the design template. You will also find that when it is time to print the wedding invitations, there will be paper jams or worse, the printer will run out of ink. Although DIY invitations will save a lot of money, they can also test the couples' patience.
