Getting a printable baby shower game or a baby shower invitation template is the first step in having the most beautiful baby shower stationery. But you haven't bought the file to just have a digital version of your invitation, game or decor. You want to be able to feel the paper, to see it up close and to impress your guests!
Whether you want to print at home or you plan to order your prints at a local or online print shop, we have found some great suppliers of paper and printing services.
Our baby shower templates and printables are all designed with home printing in mind. With our detailed instruction guide, this will be an easy and fun DIY project that anyone can do!
For home printing, you will need the following items:
- a quality printer
- card stock
- a ruler
- an (X-acto) knife
- a cutting mat
- a paper trimmer (optional)
- scissors (optional)
We recommend to use card stock of at least 110 lb. Please make sure your printer will accept the weight of the paper.
Paper and Office Supplies
We have gathered some great suppliers of really nice card stock and office supplies for your baby shower printables.
Staples regularly runs sales on paper and card stock, so you might want to check them out for a good deal. And Amazon has a very large supply of different kinds of paper. If you have a specialty card stock in mind, Amazon is the place to shop. Paper Source has a great variety of card stock and beautiful envelopes.
Local or Online print shops
If you feel like your printer is not up for the job of printing your baby shower stationery, you can order your prints at a local or online print shop.
Many of these shops will let you send or upload your file to their site, select a paper stock and simply pick up the print-outs in 1-2 days.
If you are dealing with one of our editable templates, we highly recommend that you convert your final PDF to a JPG prior to submitting your file. This will ensure that none of the text gets changed or removed by accident during the file handling process.
Vistaprint is one of the leaders in online printing services. Their printing quality is quite good and they regularly offer some great deals. Staples is the online printer that most of our customers use. Prints of Love cares about the environment and shows it by planting a tree for every order placed, which we love and support.
