FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Have a question about our templates? We’ve tried to answer some of our most
frequently asked questions below. But if you don’t find the answer to your question here,
feel free to email us!
Q: Can I change the artwork / calligraphy colors?
A: Yes! We recently updated all of our templates to include color-changeable artwork and hand-lettered calligraphy. All you need to do is click on the image and change the fill color to match your wedding colors. Instructions explaining how to do this in more detail are included with each template.
Q: Can I change the size of the template?
A: Yes, template sizes are fully customizable. Instructions for how to change the size of the template are included in the instruction document you will receive with your order. Depending on how much larger or smaller you make your template, you might need to resize the font and rearrange some of the text boxes to keep everything centered and balanced.
Q: I need an invitation insert that I don’t see listed. Can you make one for me?
A: Definitely! We hope to one day have all the invitations and matching insert templates that you might possibly need, but it’s a slow process. If you need an insert and you don’t see one in the shop, you can buy our Custom Matching Insert add-on and let us know in the notes section at checkout exactly what you would like. We will make it especially for you and email it to the email address you have on file with Etsy in about 24 hours.
Q: How should I print my invitations?
A: Our templates were designed to be printed at home on your standard office printer because, let’s be honest, it’s faster, cheaper and a lot easier than working with a professional printer. However, many of our customers have had success having them professionally printed as well. See our handy Printing Guide to learn everything you’ve ever wanted to know about printing your own invitations.
Q: What paper do you recommend?
A: Any standard, heavy duty cardstock will work, but we personally love Paper Source for pretty, high end wedding paper. Be sure to check out our Paper Guide for help choosing the perfect paper for your invitations.
Q: What software can I use to edit the template?
A: Our templates were designed for use in Word 2008 or later. You may use other software to edit them but we cannot guarantee they will work properly if using any other software.
Q: Where can I get the fonts you used?
A: Each template comes with a detailed font guide that tells you where to find the example fonts and how to install them on your computer. Every font we use either comes standard with your computer or is available for free on the internet (unless it happens to be hand lettered script in which case we will note it in the listing).
Q: What size envelopes should I buy?
A: For our invitations and save the dates we recommend standard A7 (5 1/4″ x 7 1/4″) envelopes, and for our RSVP cards we recommend A2 (4 3/8″ x 5 3/4″) envelopes. Any brand will do but we’re particularly smitten with the colors and quality available at Paper Source. You can also check out our Paper Guide for help in choosing the perfect paper for your needs.
