A Closer Look At "Printables" For Your Wedding

Happy #WeddingWednesday! Wanted to discuss printables with you today. I'm sure that if you've started researching wedding paper at all, you've come across this term. Thought I'd do a primer of sorts to help navigate this process and also list some pros and cons.

What are printables?"Printables" refer to pre-designed templates including, but not limited to place cards, photo booth signage, reserved seating tents, invitations, favor tags, cool backgrounds, etc. I've seen places where you can actually customize your printable and a file is generated for you to download, and also blank templates for download that you yourself have to customize.
Should I consider utilizing them?I think printables are smart and cost-saving. I know that I should be coercing you into having ALL of your wedding and special event paper customized by myself, but I really don't think its necessary unless there is a theme woven through all of your materials. If there is not, and your event does not dictate everything to be "matchy-matchy", then there are thousands upon thousands of pre-designed templates that you can and should consider.
ProsElement is already designed. No lengthy proofing process to go through. In some instances you can even customize the printable prior to downloading. Time saver and affordable. Tons of variety to choose from.
ConsIf you have already begun with customized stationery, then the rest of your elements should pivot off of what you started. Also, you will have to have some computer savvy to customize some of the printables that are available. Finally, be mindful of the equipment that you use. Many a lovely printable has been compromised by a low quality output.
