Finished Our Programs and Menus - Pictures!

Recommended Posts

I always try to think of a snazzy title, but never can seem to find one. LOL


We finished our programs and menus last night :-)


We are using the same design concept through a few of our projects. Its our wedding website design. We used it on the invites, and now carried it over to the the programs. Its this tree with hearts, and grass.


We found this scalloped paper at Staples. It was probably a little more than we like to spend, but we really liked the look. And after shopping for paper for 6 hours its the only one that fit this vision we couldnt implement. LOL We used green for the cover and back, and than ivory for the in between pages. We designed the pages in photoshop, and printed them on our printer. Ill be honest, the printing was a nightmare. Thats mostly because of our printer. We have an Epson that does not let you feed paper in from the back, it has to go from the top. With this size paper and it being thick cardstock it was a pain. The paper stuck together and would jam. So we had to hand feed each one for awhile there. 80 pages. LOL By the last page it finally started to feed without our help. For a minute there I thought my FI was going to recreate the scene from office space. I kept whispering hang in there epson, hes not mad at you! :P


After we got everything printer, we punched a hole in the uppper corner, and attached the pages with a flower/star brad. LOVE the result!!!!


I was a little unsure about how the brown printed on the green, but after it was all together I think it went well. And the sun will be bright so it should be okay.


Here are my pictures...although they arent the best. I wish I knew how to take better ones!

Not sure what an average price on programs our, but our programs came out to $1.80 each.


And here are our menus. These were much easier obviously. Designed them again in photoshop, and we printed 3 on a 8x11 cardstock. I also rounded the corner to give it a little extra spunk. lol Maybe doesnt go to well with the square border, but I still liked the look. We plan on putting them in everyone napkins, like a pocket. We were going to do name tags lower on the napkin, like a ring. But we arent having assigned seating so decided against it.
