I designed my STD's on Publisher and sent them as Postcards. 165 of them. The postcard paper and sparkly pens I used to address them cost $45, plus postage. Nothing special, but I wanted to keep the STD's casual and really just direct people to our website.

I'm currently working on our invitations and would love some feedback. I stole this basic design from the Destination Romance Collection of Invitations By Dawn ... and have been working on PowerPoint to put in a pic I found and use my own fonts and wording. We are having 2 AHR's, so I'm putting the basic info on the invite and will enclose an information sheet with specifics. Any thoughts on wordng, pics, general design, etc? This is just my first draft that I made up this morning. The fonts don't show up very well, but it's the Copperplate Gothic and Scriptina.

I just sent out my std e-vite, and then my formal invite Liam and I made. It was really, really cute. Liam has an art computer program and he drew a picture of the sand, water, sun, palm tree and himself, all curly haired and stick figured. His body was a heart with this stick figure legs and arms. We then smudged his picture to make it look like a watercolour, it was really pretty when we were done. Across it we put "My mommy and daddy are getting married!" and then all of the info was on the back of the picture. We worded the invite with the children's names asking everyone to join them in celebrating their parents marriage. I printed them on shiny cardstock paper. The total project was about $5.00. I love them and so did everyone else. We printed in the bottom corner art by Liam, age 4, so everyone would know that it was Liam's creation. Liam was so proud and I now have a beautiful keepsake that our son made. These invites were very appropriate for Everton and I considering this wedding is a family affair.

 

I think you can spend lot's of money on invites but there are ton's of idea's out there that really don't have to cost much at all.

I promise as soon as Kenda find the cords to our camera I will post everything, you will get everything all at once. You can borrow my small child, do you think you could meet us in Punta Cana the week of the 12th of August, Liam could use a playmate (babysitter lol), so his mommy and daddy could enjoy their first week of married life!!LOL I will bring the art supplies!!

Oh yeah I have a few more kids who could help you out also!! The more the merrier, right....

I don't really understand the vista print free postcards. I ordered the free sample package today & they sent me an email to get 100 free postcards. Why do they just give them away? Does the free offer expire? I'm not ready to print stuff, but I'd like the offer to be available when I am.
