Free Wedding Invitation Templates

Our exclusive free wedding invitation templates and premium blank wedding invitations supplies were designed for the non-crafter to easily make unique wedding invitations with professional results. Wedding invitation wording is printed or copied onto overlay sheets, we offer translucent vellum or opaque white. Using our templates, each standard 8.5"x11" sheet will provide four 4.25"x5.5" overlays after cutting, the sheets are not perforated for a professional clean edge (small pre-cut overlays would be very difficult to setup, feed and print correctly). Order one overlay per invitation, we will send the correct number of sheets you need, for example if you order 25 overlays, we will send 7 sheets. We recommend ordering a sample to test in your printer and for better durability, purchasing water resistant ink jet ink or using a laser printer or copier. After you have finished printing you will need a paper trimmer or paper cutter to cut the sheet. Download our templates below, available in popular word processing formats:

Print onto Overlay Print on test paper before using the overlay. Make sure you have several people proofread your text. Use our paper guide to check that the text is placed correctly or cut the test paper in half both ways to make a mock-up. Print on overlay's when you are sure everything is correct.


Cut Overlay with Paper Cutter... After you have finished printing, you will need a paper trimmer or paper cutter to cut the overlay in half vertically and horizontally. If you are using a cutter, cut the paper 5.5" from the edge of the longer side, then again at 4.25" from the edge (longer side up).



OR Cut Overlay with Paper Trimmer If you are using a paper trimmer, mark the overlay with a pencil using the lines on our paper guide at the top and sides or measure 5.5" down from the long side and 4.25" from the short side.


Starting with the long side up, match up the pencil line with the guide marks on the trimmer. You can cut two sheets of the 65# overlay or three sheets of the vellum at a time.


Mark the cut sheets on top and bottom with a pencil using the paper guide or measure 4.25" from the edge and make the final cut.


Attach overlay to background card, then add embellishment, this step will vary based on style chosen, view our diy wedding invitations page for detailed instructions with videos by style.
