This listing is for a PRINTABLE 5x7 Invite!
Q. I HAVE NEVER PURCHASED A "PRINTABLE" BEFORE, WHAT THE HECK IS IT?
A. When you purchase this listing we will fully customize the design you see in the listing pictures with your party information. We will then email you a PDF or JPEG of the design so you can print it as many times as you need.
You will receive either a PRINTABLE PDF file of (2) 5x7 customized invitations formatted for printing on an 8.5x11 page. (See pictures for reference).
A single 5x7 JPEG for loading onto a photo printing website like Walgreens, Target or CVS for printing as 5x7 photo prints.
Select which version you prefer in the drop down menu labeled "Size"
*PLEASE NOTE* The JPEG version of this invite is for printing only as PHOTO PRINTS, not for photo cards, or 5x7 cardstock printing that is now offered on some photo websites like Walgreens, Vista Print etc. These websites have certain bleed requirements that vary from website to website. Because of the nature of offset printing this design is not compatible. If you decide to print the invites using this option you run the risk of the invite design being cut off, shifted, or off-center. Cutie Putti Paperie is not responsible if this occurs.
If you would like me to create a file with specific dimensions and bleed requirements, this is considered a custom job and would require a custom listing. Please contact me directly for a quote.
Print as many as you need! **NO ITEMS WILL BE SHIPPED**
My shop will fully customize the design with your specific party information!
* I DO NOT SEND EDITABLE AI OR PSD FILES OF MY DESIGNS. All designs are not editable by you once sent.
When ordering please indicate the following in the NOTES TO SELLER section:
(PLEASE make sure you send us complete and accurate information. Without complete info we cannot create your itemand this GREATLY delays the delivery process)
1. Name of birthday girl/boy
2. Age of the birthday girl/boy
3. Date of the party
4. Time of the party
5. Address or location of the party
6. RSVP number or email address NOTE* Some designs will only fit one. Please choose which one you prefer
Q. WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE THE WORDING OF THE INVITE?
A. If there is any line you would prefer to remove or change on the design, please include a note with your change requests in the notes to seller section. This type of alteration is done free of charge. If you do not indicate that any line be changed or removed we will customize the invite EXACTLY as it reads in the listing pictures, with your info inserted.
Q. WHAT IF I WANT TO CHANGE COLORS OR DESIGN ELEMENTS ON THE INVITE?
A. Changes other then wording changes are additional and start at $7 and go up from there. If you are interested in a design element or color change, please message directly with your requests.
Q. DO YOU SEND ME A PROOF OF THE INVITE?
A. We do not offer PROOFS of our designs or invites. The file sent to you is a FINAL version and can be printed as is. If you have accurately provided us with the proper information along with any wording changes, we will create the invite exactly as you request!
Q. WHAT IF I FIND A MISTAKE ON MY INVITE?
A. Cutie Putti Paperie strives to get your order out accurately the first time! If for any reason you receive it and there is a mix-up or mistake on our end we will gladly recreate the design correctly and send it out ASAP, free of charge.
If for any reason you notice a mistake because of your error, i.e. the date of your party has changed, time changed, you accidentally misspelled a name, street name, you would like to remove or add a line, etc. Please note there will be an additional charge of half the original cost for recreating the design with the correct info. This is why it is INFINITELY important to provide our graphic designers every bit of correct info.
Q. THIS SEEMS UNFAIR, WHY DO YOU CHARGE TO RECREATE A DESIGN I ALREADY PAID FOR?
A. The charge for this listing is to pay for the time it takes a graphic artist to add your info to a design, adjust typography and make it look as beautifully customized for your event. Due to our overwhelming number of orders, it is impossible for us to save every customized design we create on our server in a editable form. The files are just too bigand take up too much space. Therefore before it is emailed out to you it is "flattened"and cannot be edited anymore. When a change is requested the invite has to be completely created by our team, taking up the exact same amount of time it took us to create it in the first place. We do our best to work fairly with every single one of our clients and their special circumstances, which is why we have cut the charge in half for the second time around.
Q. I WANT TO ADD A PICTURE OF MY CHILD TO THE INVITE, CAN YOU DO THAT?
A. I do not alter my designs to incorporate photos. The only option for adding a photo to your invite is to have a full photo of your child printed on the back of the invite. For this option you would have to choose the PDF version of the invite and inform your print shop your file is to be printed double sided. The finished invite will have the design and party info on the front and the full image of your child on the back. If you are interested in this option or would like to see an example of this, click on the link below to see the Double Sided Invite listing. ***YOU MUST PURCHASE BOTH LISTINGS IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS OPTION!

Photos may show additional items available for this collection and are sold separately in my shop. They are NOT INCLUDED in this listing!
I have test printed every design in my shop! Color outputs for computer monitors and printers VARY GREATLY! If colors come out lighter or darker then expected please check your printers color calibration. We are not responsible if this happens! ALL ITEMS HAVE BEEN TEST PRINTED AND CHECKED ON A PROPERLY CALIBRATED PRINTER FOR ACCURACY AND VISIBILITY!
I recommend printing items at your local print shop (i.e.) Kinkos, Staples, Office Depot, on 80-110lb card stock or cover paper. This paper will give you a nice thick invite and is used for printing with a digital color printer. Colors will come out best when printing this way.
This paper is NOT made for printing on an "At Home" printer. If you choose to print at home please check your printers specifications for paper weight before printing.
PLEASE NOTE: This file is for personal use only! You may NOT forward, share, sell or distribute the file. It is for non-commercial use only. Cutie Putti Paperie retains all rights.
