DIY Ordering Guide

Welcome to our DIY guide! You will see in our DIY section that we have lots of materials to choose from. You are free to buy and make whatever you wish, however if you would like to replicate some of our designs, we have put together a recipe for each design showing 'ingredients' list and the 'method'.

Below is what you need for 1 invite, but when you are ordering you will need to work out the total, so for example... if we tell you below you need 70cm of ribbon for 1 invite, and you need to make 80 invites, then you need to multiply 70cm x 80 = 5600cm aka 56 meters. So order 60 meters just to be safe. Another example; if we tell you need to buy a sheet of A4 paper to print your tags, and that you will get 25 tags out of a sheet, and you need 80 invites, then divide 80 by 25 = 3.2 sheets, so buy 4 or 5 sheets.

Another tip is to order more than the exact amount, especially cards/papers/envelopes which you will be printing or writing on... just in case you make mistake or need to make tests.

Doing DIY can save you money. On average it saves you about 45% - 50%. (not including your own print cartridge)
