    Hello Ladies,

     

    So to save some money, my FI and I are planning on labelling our own tumblers....

     

     

    here is what we came up with (with ideas of course borrowed from another bride)....

     

     

    We went to staples and asked for a waterproof label....the guy gave us one that is partially clear...brought it home, printed them all out....then my beautiful dog drooled on it...guess what! It's not so waterproof!!! Thankfully they aren't on the tumblers yet.

     

    We're looking for other options to personalize them, anyone got any ideas?? Anyone done these before?

     

    Thanks for your help! :)

      i'm still contemplating whether or not to do some sort of tumbler or just a koozie (which i think is cheaper & lighter!)

       

      good luck!

        I ordered waterproof labels from Bridget at Davet Designs.

          Those are beautiful!! :) I love the saying on yours! :)

           

          Etsy dealer - never thought of that!

           

          My WONDERFUL fiance came up with a solution for our tumblers today! :) He went into a sign company today and we're having them put the labels on the cups for us...and it will probably cost us about the same amount as the stickers off Etsy.

           

          Will post a pic when we get them back! :)

              They should be done by next Wednesday - I'll post pics ASAP.

               

              Also, just wondering if anyone else did this...we decided we wanted to make ourselves some cups too. They'll be most memorable for us...so we went to buy more, and the dollarama told my FI that they aren't selling them like that anymore because they break too easily during shipping....SOOOO....I immediately went out and got three extras JUST IN CASE any break on the way down there...we all know our luggage gets tossed around pretty badly. Anyone else get extras?

                      Hey Ladies! Just wanted to share a site that I came across..www.totallyweddingkoozies.com

                       I wanted koozies as a last minute addition to our OOT bags and the majority of the sites have a larger than needed minimum order. I was able to order 25 of them from here and they even threw in a "bride" and "groom" koozie! They turned out great and were pretty cheap =)

                      They actually have a bunch of customizable items if you go to http://www.totallypromotional.com/
