Heart shaped magnets have been available at Save the Date Originals for just over a year, and it's time for another save the date magnet design, this time, one that works well with a winery or vineyard theme.
The background design is printed with a faux cork-board texture, and overlaid with the sketched cluster of grapes.
Announcement: Save the Date Originals is moving in December! STDO will be shut down for a little while during the move and will most assuredly be back by January 2016.
As of November 12th, STDO will stop accepting orders for production from new customers. If you were already in contact and have a design worked out, contact Angela to see if your project can fit into the production schedule.
Save the Date Originals is still running and available for questions during the remainder of November. Orders already placed will of course be made and sent on out.
Save the Date Originals is currently experimenting with a foiling trick (shiny wording and graphics)! Currently only available on white card stock - gold, rose gold, silver, and more.
Check out this layered 5x7 wedding invitation:
This invitation has dark gold wording and a black second layer for a simple classy design.
What really elevates an invitation like this is that while it appears simple from a distance, as you get closer and look at it, more awesome details are revealed.
For example, the fact that the wording is a shiny gold:
There is more - The black card stock isn't a matte black, it's actually a pearlescent black:
Example 2: Gold rose floral invitation:
Isn't it lovely? 5x7 inches, gold on white, pictured with red envelope.
This foiling process isn't engraving or thermography; It's not quite as perfect. But is finally a much more economical option for when you only need a small number of invitation sets. RSVP + accessory cards could be plain printed or foiled to match.

STDO is finally getting back around to some invitation section updates!
The newest design is based on a recent customers destination wedding invitation; Check it out:
This is a 4x9 inch card with cut corners and a hole punched, made to look like a luggage tag. No ribbon is included with this one as priced out, but of course you could have the designer customize it for you.
The sandy background is printed on white card stock, and white envelopes are included. Yes could upgrade to color envelopes!
Those plots need to be numbered. Not something too permanent, but it has to be durable. It needs to handle the weather outside for the spring and summer.
I make laminated cards for this. But it's not quite as easy as it sounds- if you just laminate a page and cut out the numbers, water can get right in through the sides of the laminated card. The trick is to have a laminate border around the card.
Then we use a good thick outdoor double sided tape.
If you live in downtown MKE, you might have seen these garden plots around local parks.
As usual, a lot of the people who ordered sports themed save the dates or invitations have me working on yet more awesome sports themed things for their weddings. Today, I have a baseball themed wedding program to show you.
It is not complicated - it is a folded card printed inside and out. What makes it cool is the red baseball stitches along the outside (wraps around front and back).
Even for simple programs, I like to go with 70lb card stock instead of a thinner paper.
Pricing as of 2016: 25 for $60.00 plus $8.00 shipping 50 for $100.00 plus $10.00 shipping 75 for $140.00 plus $12.00 shipping
After launching the circle shaped magnets, and then the heart shaped magnets, the next big project is something most of you probably won't even notice- making the website more mobile friendly! Work is well under way on that front.
Just so as not to neglect the blog, here is a pretty picture for you:
It's a 5x7 inch wedding invitation based on one of the designs in the invitation section, but with an added gold layer. Both the creamy color and gold color card stocks are metallic, though it's hard to see that in the photo. The printed chandelier color is a light dusty pink. With metallic card stock, you really have to go with dark colors for wording, but for some design elements, you can get lighter shades.
