Creating DIY Wedding Invitations Has Never Been Easier

If you’re thinking of creating your own DIY wedding invites there’s never been a better time or an easier process in doing so. We really feel like we’re changing the game when it comes to printable wedding and event templates. Our browser based designer app just makes it so easy!

In this post I’d like to show you the simple process of selecting a template from our shop and editing the template to make it yours using our web application. Before we get into that though, let’s first look at the Why?.

Why create and print your own wedding invitations?

There are many reasons you may want to create your own wedding invitations. For most people, it could be the money you’ll save by doing so. Paying a company to create and print your wedding invites can be expensive and it can even take quite a bit of time from start to finish. So saving money is a great reason in itself to create your own invitations.

Another reason may be the flexibility you have in creating your own invitations. You can play around with designs, fonts, and colors until you get something that’s perfect for your special day. You just don’t have this kind of flexibility when hiring someone else to create them.

A third reason may be just for the fun of it! DIY-ing is huge right now. It’s fun to do it yourself and it lets you tap into your creative side. If the rest of your wedding is being done DIY style then it just makes sense to create and print your own invitations, rsvp’s, menus, table placecards, etc.

The above a just three good reasons to create your own wedding invitations but there are a whole lot more!

    I can’t edit the text in the templates. I’ve been working on and off on the templates for a month or so but now I can’t edit text, can only move it around.

    • This was a Chrome bug that was introduced in the latest Chrome version but it’s fixed now.

    Hi Im having a bit of a problem with a printable wine label I’m trying to upload to Templett. I saved these graphics as 300 dpi CMYK 8 bit because I read that’s what’s best for print. But when I upload it to templett the colors don’t show up correctly; the blue-green/teal colors look neon. And when I download them from Templett they still look neon. Do you know if they will print the correct colors? Or should I save the design under different settings?

    • There’s always going to be a slight difference between CMYK and RGB. There’s no getting around that. Maybe you should try saving it as RGB instead and see how it looks.

  • Hi guys! One of my customers wandering if there’s a way to “reset” the template to original version (made by me) after she made changes on it. Please, let me know if that is the option. Thanks in advance!

    • We don’t have the option available for customers but you are able to do it for them. There is a “revert” option that does this.

      • That would be enough, Travis! Thank you for your fast response!
