How it Works

Using e.m.papers printable templates is easy.  All you need is a home printer (or a copy shop), some paper or cardstock and a cutting instrument, like an X-acto blade.

Step 1: Download

Select a design you like and download the file. You'll be presented with a link after purchase, as well as an email with the download links. If you've purchased a wedding item, such as a printable invitation, enter your personal information (names, text, dates, etc.) into the form fields (see a more detailed how-to here).

Step 2: Print

Print the file on your home printer. You can also take it or upload it to a copy shop or digital printer. Print on card stock or regular paper as appropriate. You can find more information on what kind of paper to use and where to get it here.

Step 3: Cut & Fold

Depending on the item, you'll need to cut it, fold it or both. The solid crop marks towards the corners of the templates indicate where the card needs to be cut, whereas the dashed lines indicate where the item needs to be lightly scored and then folded.

Step 4: Send!

Purchase some matching envelopes (or download our free envelope templates) and send or give your printable card or paper good to friends, family and loved ones and bask in the glow of their praise of your DIY prowess!
