    TAaaDAaaa!

    My invites are finally done!

    I will start with the finished product:

    Its has totally been worth it in the end, but an absolute mountain of work.

    Easy stuff first - pocketfolds were from Click the image to open in full size.
    inside information (Rack Card) // one sided (stuck to pocketfold)
    Click the image to open in full size.
    Wedding Ceremony/Reception details // Welcome dinner details (Rack Card)
    Click the image to open in full size.
    RSVP Postcards (Postcards)
    Click the image to open in full size.
    Travel Brochure // Travel deal - All inclusive package // Hotel infomation // Travel agent contact details (Brochure)
    Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.
    Your presence is our present // Wedding website link (business card)
    Click the image to open in full size.

    I also ordered oversized postcards with Thanks! across the front that we are sending to people when they book - letting them know how excited we are that they are joining us, and how much it means to us that they are coming to Fiji.
    Click the image to open in full size.

    There were 100 invites in total. Althought I got lots of Free products from Vistaprint, I still had to pay AUD$8 per design that I uploaded, and you cant get the same design free twice, so some of the products I had to pay for. Most expensive item was the brochure ($1 each) but I really wanted to include all that information and people were really impressed by them. All up for 100 invites was AUD$415 (pocketfolds AUD$186 (special discount code used) and Vista print order AUD$217 and plain envelopes we printed on and sticky corners AUD$12 office works) which was a lot of work, but for the cost of completely bespoke designed invites, I think it was worth it.

    It also means I have all the design elements so eventually everything will match - menus, programs, thankyous, gift tags, welcome letters etc etc.

    It sounds like a lot of work, but I am so super happy with the end result, and I really enjoyed the whole thing. Plus, getting a design you already like from a vector website is a bit of a cheat way too...

    Anyway, thought I would share!
