BEFORE YOU PRINT

Use Adobe Reader to view and print PDF files. If you don’t have Adobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC, you can download it free from Adobe HERE. All PDF files have crop marks to help make trimming your signs or stationery easy. JPG files are non-editable, ready-to-print with no crop marks. Open JPG files with your default JPG file viewer.

SUPPLIES

We recommend high quality 80-110 lb. card stock to print your signs & stationery. Check to ensure your home printer or copy shop can handle your chosen paper weight before purchasing a large quantity of paper. Read this helpful article on Paper Selection for more information.

HOW TO TRIM

Trim Prints

The easiest way to trim your wedding signs and stationery is with a paper cutter. It will be much quicker and yield more professional results. If you don’t have a paper cutter at your disposal, you can also use an X-acto blade and a cutting mat. If you are having your signs and stationery printed at a copy shop, they will probably trim your prints for a small fee.
