1. If desired, take this extra step to make these invitations look authentically old: Brew strong black tea; let cool. Pour it into a plastic bin. Soak uncoated 8 1/2-by-11-inch paper in the tea for 1 to 2 hours. Remove it, and let dry completely on paper towels.
2. Print invitation template directly onto the dyed paper.
