Hi Erica,

Good advice! I never even knew there was deckled edge ruler! Erica! Amazing! I will definitely try that! I have such issues when printing.. I tried something last night, just while I was playing around. It wasn't a calligraphy invite so I won't share but I had it sized as a 5x7 in photoshop and illustrator and when I went to print it, it just printed as an A4. So I'm assuming I'm going wrong at the print stage!

I will absolutely share them when I get round to doing them, hoping to make a start the week after next. I also want to make them notebooks with their names on them and have those bought but I was thinking of have their names vinyl printed in gold but of course, no such thing in Ireland as far as I can see :)

Thanks for your advice as always!

Sounds wonderful! I recently purchased a silhouette cameo and you can print your own gold vinyl on it! I haven't yet but I have cut some things out and it's pretty amazing.

In terms of the printing, yes, check your print settings.  :)

Can't wait to see all the goodies.  :)

Hi Erica!
This is a wonderful tutorial, thank you! I'm so new to photoshop, and some of the skills I learned on Skillshare were a lot more complicated than the methods you use- so happy there's an easier way to prep for printing, and adding colour! Do you have an easy way to change the background colour of an invitation?

Thanks!
Priyanka
