Free Wedding and Event Invitation Templates
Our free invitation templates and premium blank invitations supplies were designed for the non-crafter to easily make beautiful, layered wedding invitations featuring luxury papers and unique keepsake embellishments. Wedding invitation wording is printed onto opaque white or translucent vellum overlay sheets using our templates, available for downloading in Word, Pages and Google Docs formats below. For ease of use, each standard 8.5″x11″ sheet will provide four 4.25″x5.5″ overlays after cutting. After you have finished printing you will need a paper trimmer or paper cutter to cut the sheet, as sheets are not perforated for a professional clean edge. The overlays are then attached to a heavyweight paper card using an brad embellishment or glue dots.

The text will be printed or copied onto 8.5"x11" overlay paper, the standard sized sheets are provided for ease of printing (small pre-cut overlays would be difficult to setup and feed correctly). Each sheet will provide four 4.25"x5.5" overlays, as detailed in the following steps.
Change Text and Font
Change wedding invitations wording as desired and experiment with different typefaces to get the look you want. Insert beautiful vintage invitation clip art for a personal touch. The template is setup for 11 lines of text using 29pt line spacing...the first line is blank to adjust for the embellishments requiring holes. You may need to make adjustments depending on length of wording and the embellishment chosen. When finished, copy and paste the text into the other three table cells.
Print onto Overlay
Print on test paper before printing on the overlay. Make sure you have several people proofread your text and cut the test paper in half both ways to make sure it is centered. Print on overlay's when you are sure everything is correct. We recommend purchasing water resistant ink jet ink or using a laser printer or copier, for better durability.
Cut Overlay with Paper Cutter or Trimmer
After you have finished printing, you will need a paper trimmer or paper cutter to cut the overlay in half vertically and horizontally. If you are using a cutter, cut the paper 5.5" from the edge of the longer side, then again at 4.25" from the edge (longer side up). If you are using a paper trimmer, mark the overlay with a pencil using the lines on our paper guide at the top and sides or measure 5.5" down from the long side and 4.25" from the short side. Starting with the long side up, match up the pencil line with the guide marks on the trimmer. You can cut two sheets of the 65# overlay or three sheets of the vellum at a time. Mark the cut sheets on top and bottom with a pencil using the paper guide or measure 4.25" from the edge and make the final cut.
