Default Help!

Can someone delete all those threads I just posted? My computer is acting funny.

And since my question didn't show up, I'll ask it again.

I'm making wedding invites for someone on commission. Should I print the inside info on white cardstock or computer paper? I'm sure the cardstock would look nicer, but would it make the invite too heavy/bulky??

Cardstock will look nice and you can find some thinner stuff at office supply stores. Also consider using vellum to print the info. You could then stamp bells or flowers on the base card, overlay the vellum and some of the stamping will show through.

I would use CS or Vellum. I did a set for a wedding. The one thing I learned - do the insert last. Just as we were finishing up the invites the bride changed the time. I thought we got all the invites changed out, but apparently not. The pastor was an hour late to the wedding. Good thing we were all family friends .

I am assuming-and I know I shouldn't, that you mean the insert? We used a parchment vellum for ours.
I agree postage needs to be a factor.
We then printed the extra info on a sheet of the same paper so it did carry through- I would love to take credit for how well it worked out but it was a fluke. Don't forget the directions probably should have a recap of the time and date on them, so many guests wont bring the invite but will bring the info sheet.

Yes, I mean the insert. I have enough of white cardstock, plain paper, or white vellum, just not sure which would be best. Or if it even matters. LOL!
