At one time, party invitations had to be either hand made or bought at a store. With advances in technology, it is possible to print out you own invitations right from your home computer. Most people avoid doing this because they are afraid the invites will look cheap or ugly. This just isn't the case anymore; several sites offer very nice invitations that look professional when printed. To make the nicest invites, be sure to use thick paper, such as card stock, and make sure your printer cartridges aren't low on ink.
