Movie Ticket Save the Date Cards

This movie ticket is similar to an older movie ticket design I may have blogged about. The older version was a black ink design printed on a pink card stock.

This new ticket is brighter and bolder. A black and red design printed on a nice sturdy lemon yellow card stock.

These movie ticket save the dates are small, simple and fun. They are 4.25x2.6 inches, and come with white 5x3.5 inch envelopes.

Surprise birthday party, that is. I have not yet had the opportunity to work on surprise birthday invitations, but thanks to working with a recent customer, I have two 5x7 inch designs to add to the website:

Right now, designs like this are settled into the "Your personal events" section of my website; For everything that is not necessarily wedding related, Christmas related, or baby related. This section includes birthdays and Bat Mitsvahs, moving announcements and First Communion save the dates.

Save the Date Stickers

Like printed magnets, stickers are another way to "stick" a date of an event in a guest's mind. The idea is that your guest can affix the sticker on a calendar, or in a planner book.

Given that purpose, you wouldn't want to send your guest a gigantic sticker- just something small, with the date.

In this photograph is a good example of a small but effective card and sticker combination for a sweet 16 save the date party. The card is 4.1x2.6 inches, and the sticker is about an inch in diameter. With custom and personalized design services that STDO offers, it is easy to coordinate the card and sticker design.

I would recommend no larger than 2 inches in diameter for a save the date sticker.

New boarding pass save the date card

Save the date with a fun sea-shell boarding pass!

This new variation on the boarding pass design idea is 3.5x8.5 inches. Printed on a nice thick light blue card stock with black and a darker blue ink colors, this card takes advantage of the colored card stock.

Like the other boarding pass designs, this card comes with rounded corners. This card does not come with a perforated tear off section.

Vegas theme

I've been working with a customer on a few different stationery projects for her wedding. She has had some fun ideas. The latest is a playing card look-a-like thank you card.

This is a folded card with the right thematic look, complete with rounded corners. This thank you is an "ace of hearts". Other options are available.

I liked the idea so much that I added an etsy listing for a set of 25:
