    so i just realized that I totally inverted two of the numbers in my travel agent's area code on my save the cards. of course the numbers aren't an easy fix like a 3 to an 8...because that would mean god loves me and he doesn't. the error is on the opposite side of the card (in other words, not the main page) so I figrue I have two options:

    - cross out the area code completely and rewrite it
    - start my STDs from scratch

    i ordered my STDs so starting from scratch sets me back about two weeks for re-ordering/shipping and maybe $150 dollars. not a big deal, but also not thrilling

    what would you do?

      I would get some white out tape, so its not clumpy, and just re-do the area code.

      If it's not the focal point of your STDs, then it shouldn't be a big deal. 2 weeks and $150 can get you a lot down the road.

      You can always do one and post a pic to get some input to see if anyone notices!

        How many are there? How many people will really get confused? Or will they know it's inverted and call the right number? IF it's the latter, I would just roll with it.

            our 89 STDs are ivory so white-out won't work...unless they make it in ivory now...i'll have to check on that cause i'm thinking maybe they do.

            my mom thinks i should just leave it since most people will probably just visit the website (or our website) and the number is correctly listed there.

              What if you get some little business cards done up just with a note on them saying "due to a printing error blah blah blah call this number instead" and stick them in the envelope with your STDs?

              Most local print shops will have them done for you in a day or two and they're pretty inexpensive.

                    hahaha...thanks, Morgan! I'll go pick some up and see how it works out. i'll post a pic later.

                    MelissaH - that's a great idea! we're actually including business cards already with our wedding website address and the contact info for our TA and prices for Dreams Tulum - so at least that one will have the right number listed on it! I'm DIYing them since i found business card paper at Staples this weekend. I'll post a pic of them tonight too!

                      If you are including a card with your TAs number, I would just leave the invite the way it is.

                      You can get cheap business cards through vistaprint. I did 100 postcards instead & they were less than $7 shipped.
