How to print your invite

After 3 years of operation My Digital Wedding will be closing effective September 30th. Thanks for your support.

To print your Wedding Invitation or Save the Date card, simply use the print functionality in your browser. The printed version will automatically hide the Wedding Wall, RSVP button, and other page content, showing only the card area with your photo and text. In the case of the slideshow invitation, only the last slide with your formal invitation wording will be shown. The printed version also makes some adjustments to the design to make it work well when printed.

In order for the design to print properly, you must check off a setting in your web browser to enable it to print background colours and images. This setting can usually be found in the print options dialog. See below for more specific instructions.

You may also want to disable the headers and footers normally added by your web browser (the title and date that prints at the top/bottom of the page). The settings for headers and footers are normally in the same place as the options to print backgrounds.

We welcome feedback on the printed version of the invites. If you have comments on the printed output, please let us know.
