Partyflops are pricey...would it be cheaper if...

Recommended Posts

....I bought some cheaper flip flops ($2.50 each) and had my monogram printed on them myself? Walmart sells cute flip flops for 2.50. Party Flops are 5.95 for women and once you add shipping you pay almost $9 per flip flop.

 

If I buy Walmart flip flops and get them printed myself, what would the cost be? Where would I go to do this? I tried googling information on this but can't find what I'm looking for.

 

Anyone else thought about this?

 

HELP!

I can't comment on how hard it would be to have the monogram printed yourself - but I wanted to let you know that I was at Michael's last week and they have blue and pink flip flops (and probably some other colors but lets face it- I am zoned into my own wedding colors 90% of the time) for $1 each!! That is way better than 2.50 per pair. Good luck - I am going to be watching this thread to see if anyone knows how to do this themselves!

wow. Thanks for the heads up! I will going to Michaels ASAP! And blue and pink are my colors too! I was just about to start a blue and pink thread because I want to do fuschia tablecloths with fuschia orchids but I need some type of runner to offset the fuschia in the tablecloth and the flowers.

 

What type of setup are you doing

We are blue and pink too, and people give me funny looks all the time. But we couldn't decide on colors so we looked at Martha Stewart and the Knot wedding color palettes and joe liked pink and blue so I went w/ it. and I know The Knot isn't wrong when it comes to weddings!

As a side note, the pink and blue theme looks great! I would not have thought to put them together, but I think it works.

 

I bought 1.00 flip flops from the dollar tree stores and ordered gift tags from Vista Print with my logo on it. I am going to attach them to the flip flops with a pink ribbon and call it a day. The gift tags were free I just had to pay the 4.99 fee to upload the logo. i loved the party flop idea but it was just a bit too pricey for me.

update!!

 

I bought michaels flip flops and tried the DIY route. I bought paint markers, acrylic paint and stencils and tested the designs out on two flip flops. The designs turned out great, until I actually wore them. The paint started rubbing off (and I used an acrylic sealant to seal the paint). It was too messy and too time consuming, soooooooooooooooo....

 

I'm going with PartyFlops! Lol.

 

Oh and here is our inspiration for the pink and blue wedding : Google Image Result for http://bumataystudio.com/Ventura/details1.jpg
