So you’ve decided to use your laser or inkjet printer to print your baby announcement, baby shower invites, or birthday invitation. With Baby Cachet’s printable baby announcements and invitations, your work is already half done because there’s no need to find the right card stock, embellishments, or other card-making supplies. Our printable announcements and invitations come complete with everything you need and, in most cases, are fully assembled except for the occasional requirement to apply a double-sided tape. Best of all, you don’t have to design the card. Each printable card has been professionally designed and preprinted with a specific theme to match your special occasion. So all that’s left to do is to print your personalized text onto the card, mail it, and enjoy the compliments.
So what’s involved in printing your personalized text? We’ve outline the eight general steps below. You’ll need the following materials before getting started:
- Your Baby Cachet printable baby announcements or invitations
- A few sheets of 8.5″ x 11″ white paper
- Microsoft Word (learn about other software you can use to print your baby announcement or invitation)
- A ruler, pen, and pair of scissors
While these steps are written specifically for Microsoft Word 2000 on a PC, they can still serve as a useful guide if you’re using a Mac, another version of Microsoft Word, or another application to layout your personalized text.
Before you dive in, take a moment and consider the advantages and disadvantages to printing your own baby stationery. Then if you feel up to the challenge, make sure you get to know your printer before you print and learn about which printer (top-feed vs. bottom-feed, laser vs. inkjet) works best for home printing as well as how to determine if a card stock is compatible with your printer.
