Want to create custom cards but don’t know where to start? We have you covered. PAPYRUS offers an easy custom printing tool so you can personalize cards and invitations to your unique taste, whether you’re looking for wedding cards, birth announcements, shower invitations, or personal stationery. We digitally print each item on premium white paper stock, with coordinating envelopes when applicable.

We’ve put together a step-by-step guide to make your experience as easy as possible.

Step 1

Have your information ready. For invitations, have all the names, dates, and venue information on hand. If you plan on customizing a photo card, make sure you have a high-resolution image. A good rule of thumb: Images smaller than 100 KB are too low-res. Always take photos at the largest size and best quality possible, and use the original image when possible.


Step 2

Use your PAPYRUS account. We recommend you either log in to your existing account or create a new one so you can save projects as you go.


Step 3

Select from our exclusive line of cards, invitations, and stationery to find the best fit for your occasion. We offer a range of cards in different sizes and orientations. Select your quantity and enter the custom printing tool. This allows you to personalize your font color, size, and style, upload photos, and select motifs or monograms. Also select from white or kraft envelopes, custom envelope liners, and envelope printing options where applicable.


Step 4

Review. After customizing your design, our tool allows you to review all spelling, fonts, colors, and positioning. If you are unsure about your design customizations, you may wish to indicate that our professional typesetters review your design and make slight design modifications where needed.


Step 5

Submit! You will receive a typesetter's proof in about one to two business days via email. Once you approve the proof, it generally takes seven to ten business days to print the order. Orders are shipped based on the selected delivery method after that timeframe. Additional production time may be added depending on the time of year.


Our customization tool, along with our exceptional customer service, are just two of the many ways we at PAPYRUS offer a seamless, enjoyable buying experience. Want a professional to walk you through the process? Visit one of our store locations for one-on-one assistance.
