Modern Invitation

A new invitation design has recently been added to the website.  It can be described as "modern".

It's simple, and yet, quirky, in that the font style is fairly basic... and then it just so happens that the wording is printed diagonally.

It's for a couple that maybe hasn't picked out a specific color scheme, or wants to include multiple colors without covering the invitation with color.

It's for the couple that maybe doesn't have any particular theme in mind and/or doesn't want to go with the usual fallback of floral or swirly patterns.

PS: Square invitations are cool.

How much postage for your invitations?

This question still comes up a lot.  I've already written about mailing save the date magnets out, and will focus just on postage here.

The main question when figuring out postage is: how much does it weigh?  Postage cost is based mostly on the weight, so that is the logical place to start.

There are some quirks though, that you might want to be aware of.

The one that often surprises people, even though it has been a rule for quite some time: a square invitation such as 5.5x5.5 inches, will cost about 20 cents more to mail out than a rectangular invitation, such as the common 5x7 inches.

Most save the date cards and magnets will not require more than a forever stamp (first class) when you are mailing with the US postal service, because they are usually fairly small (5x3.5 inches, 5.5x4.25 inches) and will weigh under an ounce.

Chicago Save the Date

A new 4.1x5.3 inch save the date magnet design is available on the website.  The feature of this design is a photograph of Chicago.  Unlike the usual skyline photographs, this was taken from a boat on the Chicago river.

Baby on Board

A baby on board car magnet that is about 4x6 inches.  It mimics a poster that the British government released in 1939 saying "Keep calm and carry on."  Colors are attention-getting red and yellow, and, the black border is part of the magnet.

Heart Shaped Tags

How many of my posts begin with something like, "So, a customer asked me if I could do-"?  A lot of them.  Here is yet another example of something not posted anywhere on the main website (yet).  

A heart shaped favor tag:

Cute!  This was done for a bridal shower.  The tags are about 3x2.5 inches.
