Baseball themed placecards

Thanks to the ticket save the dates that are so popular, STDO ends up with a lot of sports related projects!  Here is a set of baseball themed place cards that I recently worked on:

In this case, the couple sent in a list with each table #, player table name, and then the guest's name.  They are folded, and about 4x2.5 inches.

You could get a similar set of 50 for around $65 plus $7 shipping to anywhere in the USA.  Place cards with blank spaces for you to hand write names will cost less.

Classic Invitation with Gilded Wording

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.

If you are interested, send an email!

Below is an example of a foiled thank you card:

This particular thank you card design is actually now posted on the STDO etsy shop:

You too can get your *own* name in foil for an unforgettable thank you note.
