Twilight &True Blood Themed Party

I have worked on Halloween themed save the date and invitations in the past. They have all incorporated imagery you might expect- such as a haunted house, a pumpkin, a skull, or maybe a ghost.

A party theme that is similar, but more specific, is: Twilight and/ot True Blood vampire themed parties.

One of my recent customers decided to throw a party with this party theme. She found some awesome drink labels here, on HWTM's blog, that incorporate blood splatters.

But she wanted more than drink labels- she wanted favor tags, First Aid Kit labels, and invitations.

The 5.5x4.25 inch invitations were sent out with 5x3.5 inch response cards, and include a quote from Twilight. She will hand out mini first aid kits to guests to symbolize Bella's klutzy nature.

You might have noticed that her themed party was also her birthday party. Turning 30 might suck, but this party won't.

On a sidenote- check out this alternate 4x8 inch invitation design:

There really are a lot of ways to go for invitations designs in this "vein".

Student Driver?

There are a lot of things you can do with car magnets; Advertising, personalizing, politicizing, and joking. I get the occasional "just married" car door magnet order from bridal parties.

Another idea is: the student driver magnets.

I recommend getting more than one magnet- you can put them on the back, front, and sides of your car. That way, your nervous new driver might get a little more understanding from fellow drivers. If not... at least they were warned.

This photograph features three 8x4 inch magnets with: "BEWARE: student driver".

There is an etsy listing for 3 of these magnets.

Spring cleaning: Baseball Table Numbers

STDO is getting ready to move locations in a couple of months; This meant that spring cleaning this year had to be very thorough. Consequently, I have run across all manner of save the dates, invitations, and other projects from over the years.

Check out this baseball themed table number:

Being sports illiterate, I do not actually know the who the baseball player in the photograph is. Each of the 20+ numbers featured a different famous player.

This table number is a tall folded tent card about 4.5x9 inches tall. The number is printed front and back. To ensure that the card stands up well, a join was added to the bottom. The join also folds, so that these are as much of a pain to store before the event.

Love Birds

At long last, a save the date with a lovebird theme. This is a demure design with a white background and gray graphics (though you can change that). Two birds sit on a branch.
