I've done some searching on here and other sites and have found nada that is blank. Does anyone know where I can find cards or paper that is accordion style (aka z fold) that has the tear-off RSVPs? I keep looking and looking and find nothing. Sad

Thanks!

Gosh I dunno,  maybe you could get your local print shop to perforate you some paper.  I know mine will do that.  Don't think Kinkos,, I mean like a real printer.

Are you looking to do this yourself, or do you want pre-printed? I ask because you could do a perforation yourself using a paper cutter with a perforating edge (not sure what it is called, but I do own one.) You can fold the parts you want to fold using a bone folder (to make them nice and sharp), then perforate the part you want to come off. Just a thought...

DIY would probably be your best bet-- it'd probably cheaper as well.

You gals (errrr maybe guys too) rock! I've never done much paper work, so I didn't even know you could perforate on your own! And, yes, I am looking to make our invites because we're poor and I think it would be fun. Plus, we have currently have plenty of time.

Thanks again! I love this place. Smiley

Isn't that funny?  Before coming to this website, it never would have occured to me that I could perforate my own paper.  My husband and I made our announcements, and it saved us so much money, and they looked great.  Congratulations!

you can also perforate paper by simply sewing down (with no thread) where you want it to tear off, just be sure to test out the stitch length first, too far away and it wont tear easily, too close together and it might come apart when you don't want it to.

Okay, so I just tried this. I used a pink-colored card stock and plain white paper to compare. The colored card stock worked okay. I played around with the stitch length, but never got a super clean tear, even with bending it first. Also, another downer of the card stock is the back looked quite sad since in order to create the perforating, the needle pushed down and through the card, which left the back with the remnants of what was pushed through-- white paper that is between the pink layers. So, I tried plain white computer paper in hopes of success, and it worked wonderfully. It tore quite easily after just folding it once, and the back didn't look as pitiful since it was white paper. If you don't mind a little yuckness on the back, I'd say this is probably the greatest idea ever. Otherwise, I think I'd just invest twenty bucks in a paper cutter with perforating add-on.

You might want to search the internet for "send and seal" invites.  I think all I've seen of those so far have been printed already and you order them customized; but I  didn't search high and low, so it's possible that you might be able to find some blank ones that you can diy a bit.  I think they tend to be pretty inexpensive even if you order them
