Printing Tips


Baby Shower Invitations, Games and Decor are the first step to throwing a truly unforgettable Baby Shower. 

Whether you want to print at home or you plan to order your prints at a local or online print shop, we’ve created this handy guide to help you along.


Home Printing

Our baby shower templates and printables are all designed with home printing in mind. 

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 Supplies

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 using 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.

Printing Services

Vistaprint is one of the leaders in online printing services. Staples is the online printer that many of our customers use.
