There are many different reasons on why you would want to be creating your own wedding stationery. You could either be wanting to save money, love the idea of a creation project or want to add your own flare to your wedding stationery.
Things to consider before making your own wedding stationery
Creating your own wedding stationery takes time. Even if you are a pro on using services like monogram maker online then it can take time. You should give yourself double the amount of time to design and create your wedding stationery than you think you should need.
Once you have a design and style then you should stick to it, after all you do not want to add the extra stress of having to change everything once you are halfway through. This also means that you should make sure that all the colours are correct. Some colours can be slightly but different enough from screen to paper, due to lighting and even the type of paper you are using. Monogram Maker has plenty of styles and designs with which you can play around with and use in designing your wedding stationery.
You need to decide on a budget that you will set for creating your own wedding stationery. Like all other aspects of a wedding it will need it's own budget. After all you do not want to spend a massive amount of time and effort into creating a perfect design only to discover that it is too expensive and you can't use it. As such you will need to consider multiple different things to make sure you are staying within that budget such as: What size are they going to be? Are there embellishments? What paper or card will I be using? Will I need more printer ink? You will also need to consider how much postage will cost, as added embellishments could make it heavier or larger than what you might think. So once you have made the first you can either weigh it yourself and look up prices online or take it down to your local post office to get a more accurate weight and cost.
Things you may need to get started
- A computer with internet connection and a good design suite like Photoshop or monogram maker online.
- Good quality printer and supply of ink
- Long armed stapler
- Stationery guillotine

- Craft stamps and Ink pads (these can be great for designs or for doing repetitive writing like return addresses)
