  1. 1

    Open the invitation template you've downloaded and complete the necessary information for your event. The basic information is "Date," "Time," "Location," "Event," "Dress" and "RSVP." Save your template once this information is inputted.

  2. 2

    Customise the template where possible. Depending on the template you are working with, you may be able to change the colour of the invitation or other features within it, such as the type and size of the font.

  3. 3

    Save the final version of your invitation once you've made all choices for customising the invitation. Load card stock printer paper into your home printer. Make sure the paper you buy matches the size of the template and that the card stock also includes envelopes for mailing.

  4. 4

    Print the number of invitations you need, insert them into the addressed envelopes, attach the correct postage and mail.

Tips and warnings

  • If you don`t want to print the invitations out, consider sending your completed invitations via e-mail.
