The invitations can be printed on general 8 ½ by 11 inch paper along with business size envelopes. Select envelopes with a parchment or linen look, a tan or off-white color works great. Stay away from the typical white colored envelopes.

Purchase or use graphic arts software that lets you to work on a plain letter sized document. A border should be positioned all-around the edge of the document. Celtic prints, flowered designs or scrolls with a decorative look work best. Try to keep your border within an inch of the edge of your document.

Gently and with care, rip or tear the paper edges to give a more medieval period look to your invites. You can use a ruler to accomplish this. Lay the paper flat with your ruler equal to your paper border. Pull the ruler upward with care in order to tear and soften the edges of the invitation which will keep a clean line.

Reply or RSVP postcards should be created from heavy paper card stock. Colors that can set off the invitation are terrific. The same font and border should be applied to make the look complete. Use the same 8 ½ by 11 sheet of paper. You can fit four to each sheet of 8 ½ by 11 piece of paper. Don’t change the edges of the postcards.
