Printing our DIY Party Printables
If you have recently purchased a printable file from our Etsy store then the below information will apply.
We recommend printing at a professional print house or your local printers for best colour and paper results. Print 100% do not scale. Ask your printers to see paper stock examples so you can select the right paper quality, especially if you want a nice finish.
We will supply you a PDF file with bleed and Trim Marks. We set them up with extra bleed and trim lines so you can easily cut out using a ruler, scalpel on a cutting matt or just use scissors. READ IMPORTANT NOTES BELOW ON DOUBLE SIDED PRINTING
Please email me if you need the artwork sent to you as a pdf, 2 up on 1 page so you can print 2 invitations per page let me know.
If you need a jpeg file of the invite so you can email around to your friends, or if you need a high quality jpeg to upload to your print shop let me know.
Printing at a professional print house – email them the files, and they will set up the print files and print double sided for you, no fuss. Usually their print quality colour is better than home machines. Printing at home – You can print your invitations using a double sided printer using US Letter size paper or A4 at %100, Do not scale.
(IMPORTANT: Not using a double sided printer, and feeding the paper manually for the front, then the back can have alignment issues as paper can move in some printers.)

If you have a 1.75inch or 2 inch circle or flourish punch print the last page/s of the cupcake topper file, as this has extra colour bleed. If not, just print out page 1 and cut with scissors. Punches are available from online websites – EK Success Brands, Walmart and Kmart.
