Can make them work
For the money, these are super cheap and they're easy but they require some attention. First, I went to Kinkos, Staples, OfficeMax... no one would print them for me. They said they can't be printed on the machines they have but I could easily do it at home. So I went home. Apparently, LaserJet is the only way to go which worked out well since that's what I have but I had to contact support at HP (my printer is HP) and have them install new drivers. Once the drivers were installed, everything worked great except for the response card envelope. For some reason, it would not print in any color other than red. (I was going for black.) The guy at HP thought it was to do with the tiny size. Anyway, I saved the template as a PDF file (instead of a Word file) and that worked. So got through that hurdle. Next up was the pearl on the outside. When you put the invite into the envelope, make sure the pearl is facing the back of the envelope. The entire set I mailed out with the pearl in the front had a whole in the envelope when it arrived. I think the post office puts the address through a scanner and having the "bump" on the front caused the whole. The ones I mailed with the pearl in the back did not have a whole. Also, I used 70 cent stamps and this worked but was more money. So, overall, these are super cute. The printing came out great and they're incredibly cheap but they're high maintenance. If you're up for it, go for it. If you're not savvy with the computer and/or the printer and how to print everything, I'd stay away. It may not be worth the headache for you.
Oh, also, I bought 4 boxes of these envelopes - in each box there were invitations that were damaged in some way. The boxes were sealed so it was incredibly odd to think they'd be ripped and torn but at least 2 or 3 per box were damaged and could not be used.
