    No problem! Tim is the boyfriend of my friend Erin, so as long as you say Jamy he'll know me. (but not as starchild...lol)

    The dresses were actually "burnt orange" although they look more red than orange in certain light. They are from David's Bridal but the style has been discontinued :o(

    I got the 99cent natural colored totes that are on the home page. They were fine for our purposes. Not thick, sturdy canvas, but they are still very durable and cute. Would you believe I don't know if I have a pic of the finished bag? Let me scour through my photos, if not I can take a pic of a bag I saved.

      Are you the one with the red logo? I may have to copy you...how can I get your logo :) I mean, I'm not getting married in Cabo, but...

      Also, which is the best kind of iron on transfer paper out of curiosity?

      I've found some places online that do one color screen prints + bag for about $4 so that is looking like an option if I'm willing to have a washed out looking photo, which might work for the photo I'm using...

      Oops....totally missed the part where you said you are doing a photo! Like Jenn said, you'd have to try it out. Yes, I had the red logo- I got it from Aylee designs: Aylee Designs - wedding design and print services

        So maybe you guys can tell me if doing a photo would be cheesy?
        A different company I contacted gave me a quote which works out to about $5.95 a bag (based on getting 50, but I'm realizing I'll probably need more) for the 2 color print and $3.03 a bag for the 1 color print. I'm including renderings of my photo based on the 2 color (2 examples) vs. 1 color. He also said he'd give me a discount on the printing if I order bags through him, and he quoted btwn $1.90-$3.33 a bag depending on type. I'm going to go in later today hopefully to see which he means.

        2 color version that I like best:

        2 color version that I like less:

        1 color version that is cheaper but looks too black and white for me I thnk:
        Image of company's guess of 1 color screen - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
        I wouldn't mind something between the 1 color and the 2 color I like best. So do you think this would look cheesy on a natural color tote? Probably in the size of 2x3 or something?

        I also like some of the designs people have used, like Sarah's red design (my colors are red and I guess aqua or that type of blue? - red flowers, probably red bridesmaid dresses if I can find some I like, blue, brown, and white invites (copied cheese diva, thanks!), and I'll probably combine the 2 somehow more for all my stuff. I love red, but blues and browns and naturals look nice on paper products!

            I like the 1st one you posted in 2 color. Very cool :) BTW - my colors are red and aqua too!

              Hopels - Oh please share what you've done with the colors. I've done nothing but order invites so far, so I am in need of help!

                I like the first photo too, that will look cute on the bags

                  My sister seems to think a logo would look cuter. And maybe it would be cheaper to screen on? I'm thinking of contacting the company that did Sarah's palm tree monogram thing (the one on the bottom)

                  but have it done in red or aqua with just the location and date underneath. I don't know. So confused. This is what happens when I ask my family's advice .

                    I guess it is cheap enough to buy the logo, but if anyone knows where I can find the actual palm tree clip art so I can design it myself, LMK!! The one in the circle is cute too. Not sure if it'll still be cute in my colors though...

                      I got my logo from them too, I'm not sure where to get the clip art. I'm guessing that a logo would be cheaper to transfer/have printed than a photograph but I'm not sure....
