Has anyone designed and emailed their own invites manually (Instead of using an online site)? Any regrets or considerations?

    Thank you Abbie! Those are my 3 little fur babies. I put the link right under the invite for people to see. That being said some older folks were a bit confused. For them, I took a screen shot of the STD and sent it by email saying they could just reply to the email. I also just sent 1 email per family, you can address it to several people so with 50 flyers you can invite many! Good luck in finding what your are looking for!馃

    Hi abby! I used the flyer option from paperless post. You can send up to 50 for free. I basically just found the visuals I liked online and created a collage on word. I uploaded my collage as one image and then added the text directly in paperless. It can be a bit more time consuming but for me it was worth it having a custom save the date for free. I linked it to my wedding wire website if people where ready to respond. This is what I ended up with Paperless Invites 2

    I know one cousin who used greenvelope and others unsure of the websites they used. This site has its own website which you can use to have your invitation posted.

    Thank you Abbie!
    Oh yes, Canva is great with the edits and you can do a lot with it and it turns out well. You are very welcome!! 馃槉 For my welcome table, I created some signs that had the same templates as well. Including 鈥極ur Love Story鈥 and 鈥楾able number and guests list鈥.

    I ordered digital templates off of Etsy which I could edit/create with using a web based tool and then I ordered the prints from Prints of Love. Has gone very smoothly.

    Never mind, lol I guess I glanced over the part where you asked if someone did it without using an online site. Loved the site we used though, would recommend them to anyone

    We are using greenvelope.com . We sent out the save the dates and they were great. It allows you to keep track of everything.


    I originally wanted to mail out invites and go all out with stationery design, personal touches and etc but the online option worked out well and our invites look great.

    Hello Abbie,
    I did not use email, but I made my own on Canva, then I sent them by text. I find it better. It was very personal and that option saved me money!! Hahaha!

    It worked for us. I would recommend but it depends upon what you like. The invites will be thrown out anyways when you do all the printing and such. Might as well sent them text and not have to deal with the entire process to decorate and such. 馃し馃徑鈥嶁檧锔 my opinion. Haha.
