Wedding Lesson: Buy Printer Ink

I read a lot of wedding and bridal tips when planning my wedding. There was a tip that said: Buy printer ink before you print.

And I thought this yesterday when I was planning on printing the address labels for our wedding invitations. For a moment, when I was out during the afternoon, I thought about picking up some extra ink. But I thought, "Nah, that's just a myth."

I set up our labels, which were supposed to have the invitees name in purple, the address in black, and a purple flower on the label. It didn't quite come out as planned.


Pretty sure that invitation isn't getting where it's going. The black is fine but the color cartridge, I can't say the same. And that flower that was supposed to be there ... not even close.

It was 1:30am when I was printing these (because that's how wedding stuff seems to go), so there's no way that I was going anywhere to pick up ink. I had a mini freak out ... and then it hit me. I had been warned about this multiple times and I didn't listen. I heard you would run out of ink at the most inopportune time, but I didn't listen.

And it happened.

There's a reason why cliches are cliches. So, please, heed my warning: If you are planning in printing anything at home, buy printer ink. Even if you don't think you need it. Even if you are sure you don't need it. Buy it.

That's your PSA. Consider yourself warned.
