aww thank you so much christine! i really hope i can incorporate the DW flair... i grew up in fort worth, now live in dallas, but we are having the wedding in austin. that's where i lived for several years when going to college/graduating so it has a special place in my heart. especially because that's where our relationship developed so it is a city that has a lot of significance to both of us and lots of good memories. i think it will be fun. i really wanted to get married on the beach, but i think i'll settle for maybe a TTD shoot on the honeymoon to make sure all the important people can be there. sorry to hijack! :)

Go to your local craftstore (Michael's or A. C. Moore) and buy an invitation kit. You can dress it up any way you want with fun stickers, beads, diamonds, palm trees, etc. and it gives it a personal touch.

Invites don't have to be super expensive.

I haven't found a way to make 4x8 cards at mpix. They have 4x6 and 5x7 but they are more expensive than the 4x8. That's why I suggested making the 4x8 with enough room to crop the edges and affix to a cardstock background. I think this would accomplish 2 things: dress it up and make it thicker...

 

What resolution are you saving your .jpg's to? Mine seem to turn out fine and my quality doesn't diminish at all when I save as a 300dpi jpg in Lumapix.

Thanks! It was definitly a BDW collaboration.

I'm thinking about just printing a few with vistaprint to see how they look. The first 10 are free. I'm looking for a cheaper upload deal. If they look nice, I might just stick with that. I'm not good at cutting a pasting. I usually get glue where I don't want it & I never cut straight lines. Even with a paper cutter.

I'll have to check out the craft stores. I'm not so crafty so I don't know what's out there.

They're great- that's what I used to make my invitations. They're little squares of, basically, double-stick tape. Actually, if you really wanted to be budget-conscious, just use double-stick tape! Get a cheap paper cutter (you can get them for like $10 at Hobby Lobby and other craft store) and cut like 1/4 to 1/2 inch off each edge so that there is a border when you tape it to the cardstock. I still think that would look awesome (and expensive!).

The 4x8 cards from vitaprint are actually 3.74" x 8.27". I have a sample that I've layed on top of a 4x8 christmas card. If I chopped 1/2 inch off the bottom, it would fit nicely on a piece of 4x8 cardstock.

 

Do they sell 4x8 cardstock pieces or do you buy sheets & cut them?

 

I'm going to order the 10 free 4x8 invites & see how they look. I'll be sure to take pictures. I'm getting the matte finish, because the 4x8 cards are not available in linen finish. I pulled out my sample notebook & I think the matte finish will look really nice.
