The Invitation Suite

for details, click on the link






Most of our guests will receive only the reception card, but I recognize that not every guest is comfortable with only an online RSVP option.  They'll get both inserts.  The online-only guests will have a code written in the white space at the bottom of the reception card that will be their online RSVP code. 


Necessity may be the mother of invention, but a good sale is the mother of inspiration, in some cases.  The website was offering some pre-cut, pre-scored cardstock at a price of 50 for $5.00, plus 20% off all clearance items.  I jumped on the deal.  The cardstock was folded on the short side, instead of the long side (hamburger style, instead of hot dog style, for you Dinah Zilke people). I designed a program to go with the cards!

They will be embossed with the same swirls as the invitation envelopes, and bound with blue or white cord. 


VistaPrint Orders:

Map/direction cards, Welcome Letter, Gift Tags, Stickers, Photo Sharing Cards, and even a Ring Bearer's Hat!

Taking advantage of a 50% off upload sale at VistaPrint, I ordered maps for our guests, a welcome letter for the hotel guests, and gift tags to go in the OOT bags.  (The bags will have Hershey bars in them!)  I even added a little something extra for our ring bearer.

The Welcome Letter for the OOT bags:

The Gift Tags for anything that comes with a Hershey Bar (Business Card, ordered in Glossy)

 Photo Sharing Card (Standard Postcard Size)

Small Car Door Magnet (still, pretty big!)

Ring Bearer's Cap



Custom Stamps

I ordered a custom stamp from late on a Thursday night.  On Monday morning, it arrived in my mailbox.  For less than $14, including priority shipping, I had a return address stamp that would work on both my outer envelopes AND any RSVP envelopes I sent out. 


The stamp is not smudged; the photos have been changed to maintain some sense of anonymity.



The script font is Splendid ES.  The serif caps are Castellar, but Felix Titling also looked very nice.

(The vision for the RSVP envelope: white ink on Stardream antique gold A1 envelope)
