#496: the invitations.

have you seen the latest kleenex campaign? you know. the one that goes:

touch touch touch touch touch touch touch touch...

...feel.

****************************************

yeah, well, i wish you all could feel the invitations i just received from april. because she did it. she captured what we were going for. and made it happen for us. with the lamest of directions.

the stock is so beautifully textured, the font is perfectly whispy, and the ink colors on the paper exude a tinge of vintage. it's everything i (and inadvertently the fiance) love but could never (and actually didn't ever) articulate.

so dearest april: you are brilliant, talented, awesome, and somewhat of a mindreader. in the best possible way.

t.h.a.n.k. y.o.u.






next step: decide on the packaging. i'm pulling the vintage stamps idea since they cost a lot. regular postage it is.

as for the invitations...i keep coming back to lace for some reason. hm. a lace cozy perhaps? or just a little trim on top?

idk. TBD.

Do you mind my asking; were your invites expensive? I have a $100-$150 dollar budget for 75 invites and I love these!

Why don't you try zazzle.com. You can produce a "vintage looking" stamp for a few cents more than a regular stamp. It's worth trying :) Hope it works for you!
