>> About Printables <<
What are printables?
Our printables are wedding stationary products that you can print yourself. Each of our products allows you to print as many as you like for your personal use, whether you are having a wedding of 30 guests or 300 guests. Our products are delivered to your inbox as a digital file, so if you prefer to have a professional printer print your wedding collection then you can easily do so by providing the file to them.
Why should I use printables for my wedding invitations?
We love printables because they let us color outside of the lines and give us freedom – the freedom to choose, to let our creativity shine, to express ourselves, and to add our own touch to our wedding day. Add a pop of color by printing one or more of our products on colored cardstock. Change the look of our products to better fit with the feel of your wedding day by printing on different types of paper, such as watercolor paper, textured paper, sparkly paper or even vintage book pages. The possibilities are endless!
>> About the Different Types of Printables we Offer <<
One Handspun Day offers two different product types within each collection: Print-Its & Templates.
Print-Its arrive in your inbox, ready to print. All you have to do is fill out the order form to tell us what wording you would like used on your printables. We will do the rest and you will receive a proof within 5 business days to review. Once you have approved the proof you will receive an email with your final printable within 3 business days. All you need to do is print.
Our Templates arrive without text so you can type it in yourself. Templates are designed to give you flexibility with changes that may occur as your wedding day gets closer. We will provide you with a link to download the font we used so it looks the same (or you can choose a different font that tickles your fancy!) and you control the wording on your printables. Our Templates are available for our name cards, favor tags, programs and menus. That way you don’t have to worry if an RSVP arrives late or your caterer makes a last minute change because you can just change the Template and reprint.
>> How to Print your Printables <<
You can either print your printables out on your home printer or have them printed by a professional printer of your choice. We put together a sample here for you to print so you can see the size of our invitations as well as the colors and quality of printing your home printer will produce. Don’t forget that paper choice is very important! If you print out the sample onto a piece of computer paper the quality will not look nearly as good as if you print it out on a textured piece of card stock.
All of our printables are formatted to fit on 8.5” x11” paper so they are faster and easier to print (no adjustments to your printer tray are needed to fit that 3×5 piece of paper!). Once they are printed, all you have to do is cut them out using the trim marks. We prefer to use a paper cutter, but a ruler and a cutting tool (such as an x-acto knife) works as well! If you prefer not to do the cutting yourself, you can take your printables to a professional printer such as FedEx Office to be cut professionally.
