July's Favorite Project = New Offbeat Invitation

This newest invitation design to be added into the offbeat wedding category is a design that was inspired by a bride asking for something that fit in with keywords like "vintage", "tattoo", and "rock star".  For me, one of the first things that came to mind for "rock star" was a guitar.

The photographed invitation is a simple 5x7 inch card with a 5x3.5 inch response card.

The original project that inspired this was in bold pink, and, part of a black pocketfold:

That couple actually went with bright pink envelopes as well, which will really make things pop.

A design like this could work for any sort of "concert" themed wedding, and perhaps for those couple's who are in a band or otherwise involved in the music industry.

These fun invitations are surely a good follow up to a ticket-style save the date card or magnet, for which (hint) there are plenty of designs posted on the Save the Date Originals website.

What next for the offbeat section?  Feel free to make suggestions.

New Save the Dates

With some customers arriving at the STDO website in search of wedding invitations, having decided not to go with save the dates, there are new design ideas being added to the invitation section of the website that would also translate into good save the date designs too, if the designer gets around to updating her save the date design section.

A good example is this new save the date magnet design with a swirly heart graphic:

This graphic was created for an invitation design that hasn't even been posted to the website yet!

And lastly, this Rock'N'Roll save the date design with two guitars:

There are surely more designs to follow!

Lady Bug Calendar

The large 8x10 inch calendar fridge magnets can be made for business or fun.  Check out this calendar magnet made for someone who loves ladybugs:

It is simple, without a list of important dates or extra wording, which leaves some potential space for extra hand written notations.

This particular calendar starts in July 2012 and ends in June 2013.  These calendar magnets can start wherever specified;  No need to wait until the year's end to buy a calendar magnet.
