STEP 1: CHOOSE A TEMPLATE

If your download came with a bonus backside, you will need to decide on if you plan to print it or not before choosing a template. Listings that come with a bonus backside come with two templates-- a 1-page template and a 2-page template. If you do not plan to print the backside, proceed with the 1-page template. If you plan to print the backside, proceed with the 2-page template. Page 2 of the 2-page template is the backside.

 

STEP 2: OPEN IN ADOBE READER DC

Open the file in Adobe Reader DC. This is the most important step. The following steps will not work properly in any other program. You can download Adobe Reader DC here for free.

  • Please note, after downloading, many web browsers automatically open PDFs in preview mode inside the browser. You will need to close the template in the browser and go to your computer's downloads folder to open the file in the Adobe Reader DC program. The template cannot be properly edited and saved using a web browser.
  • See a screenshot of what a template looks like when open in Reader DC here.

 

STEP 3: EDITING

Edit your text by simply clicking into the blue highlighted text fields and re-typing. If you prefer a different font, text color, or if you need to increase/decrease the text size, highlight the text you wish to change and select CTRL+E (PC) or Command+E (Mac). Do not click the Edit button. This will prompt you to purchase an extended version of Adobe Acrobat, which is not need to edit and save the template.

 

STEP 4: SAVING

After editing with your details in place, go to File>Save As and save the file in a location on your computer or on a flash drive where you can easily locate it. Close the template and then re-open it in Adobe Reader DC to make sure that your details have been saved.

 

STEP 5: PRINTING

There are many options for printing. To print from home, print from Adobe Reader DC and follow our at-home printing tips. If you plan to print from a print shop, please see our list of places that can and cannot accept the files. Many shops require the files to be set up in a specific way so it is very important to know these requirements before attempting to print our templates at your shop of choice.

 

STEP 5: SENDING AS AN EVITE

See our Evite Creation page for directions on how to receive your file as a single JPG file to be used as an evite that can be sent via text, email, or on social media.
