Mrstgun's Planning Updates (Pic Heavy - FINAL Planning Post - Page 65, Post 642)

Why don't you try darkening your purple.  It may not look right on the computer screen but as long as it is printing like you like than you are good to go!!!!  I had the same trouble when designing personalized items for my friends bachelorette.  It was the opposite though, when it printed it printed MUCH darker!

Loving your latest project and so looking forward to the final review!!

Congratulations! I knew you did amazing monograms, I just discovered your DIY thread!!! I managed to come up with five different monograms. When you get a chance, do you mind checking out my thread. I would love your feedback. I want to add our date and destination somehow without making it look crowded.

 

Happy planning!

To my inspiration,

 

Love the door hangers! I'm going to have to make us one!

 

Oh my gosh I'm going to go through withdrawal after you have your beach wedding. I hope you slept peacefully.

In my opinion, organized chaos (only when wedding related) is perfectly acceptable!!! I bet you know where everything is and where to reach for it if you needed it on that table!!  Loving the door hangers for while you are getting ready! May have to use that one myself, if you don't mind?!  Can't do the regular ones (shhh sleeping form attending ______ wedding) we are staying in family style condos and defeats the purpose. Thanks for sharing!!!

Sorry to hjack your thread R!!!

 

@ Tori - My biggest problem are the images I purchased to use for the invites.  Without having photoshop or being a skilled graphic designer (although I should have explored that option in college), I am left to match the font color to the image color.  It's not terrible as I've found paper from papersource that matches it spot on but it's not perfect (in my mind) and I think we all know how that feels...  


Thanks for the advice!!! I still may bring it to a printer - not staples and see if they can do anything different.
