Holiday cards 2014

Yep, it's that time of the year!  Early birds are already looking for holiday cards.

At STDO you can get a custom holiday card designed.  With photographs, without photographs.  Any colors.  Go with a typical matte card stock, a glossy card stock, a linen texture card stock, or maybe even card stock with a pearly shine.  You could even get color envelopes!

If someone adds an order of custom printed fridge magnets to an order of holiday cards (be it a wedding save the date or a photo favor), they will get free shipping.

Round is back Around!

In about 2010 when I decided to start making the magnets myself, I found that left me unable to offer shaped magnets.  Well, they are back now, and are the same high quality as the rectangular sizes.

These magnets are approximately 4 inches in diameter, have a glossy finish, are about 30mil thick, and are circularly awesome.

Check out some designs:

And, by the way, these will be on sale during November.  To celebrate the return... 20% off!

Steampunk wedding invitations

Steampunk is a style that I haven't happened try designing for... until now!

Someone asked for steampunk save the dates that wouldn't be overly surprising to their guests.  When I think of steam punk weddings, there are some crazy fun ideas that come to mind- like maybe a pair of advanced octopi!

But for something simple, here is an idea:
steam punk wedding invitation: gears + copper

This idea is 5x7 inches, and would be made of white card stock.  (That whole background would be printed on).  Old style typewriter font paired with one that looks handwritten.  Of course I had to include a couple of gears, but in this case I also added a geodesic dome.  Last but not least, I'm thinking of copper envelopes with be a good finishing touch.

This invitation idea will probably make it onto the actual STDO website sometime in the next year, but if not, contact Angela at for a price quote.

New in August

Many of the projects that I work on never make it to the website, because it takes time to get all the files in order, take photographs, add the details page, etc.  If I even remember which projects I was planning to add.  ;-)

Still, more things are constantly added.  What made it to the website in August?  Well...

1) A beach themed wedding shower invitation with a banner to highlight the bride's name:

2) A 6x3 inch airplane boarding pass save the date magnet with some tropical palm trees by the side:

3) A jungle themed baby shower invitation with a lion, monkey, and giraffe:

4) A 3x4 inch Vegas wedding save the date magnet:

5) A wedding invitation with the Chicago skyline:

....and that wasn't all.  I already posted about the luggage tag save the dates from earlier this month!

Door Hangers

Yep, door hangers are coming soon to the website.

Check out this 4x9.5 inch double sided door hanger example:

These are for a guests of the wedding that will be staying at a nearby hotel.  One side says a welcome from the bride and groom;  The other asks not to disturb, for the guests are recovering!

This example is a romantic red with bokeh and hearts.

These hangers aren't super thick, but they are laminated for a little extra durability.  There is a slit to one side just in case it would be needed to get the hanger over a door knob.

If you like the idea of door hangers awaiting your out of town guests, get your own custom design!   As with everything else... any wording, any pattern, any colors, we can probably come up with something together that will work.

Estimated pricing is 10 for $30, 20 for $48, 30 for $65, 40 for $80, 50 for $94
