My STDs were designed and printed in Stamford, Connecticut. I took the Metro North up to Stamford and met with my bridesmaid LA. Immediately, LA got to work in her home office. (She does this for a living!)
We finally got them printed!!! The above photo is LA checking out the prints and making sure they were consistent, the black was black, and all the edges were clean. She even washed and cleaned the printer after every four or five sheets. I love that my friends are perfectionists. 😀
Then she cut and hole-punched the individual save the dates. She punched little semi-circle notches in the sides of the STDs because we tied a piece of twine around each invite. I thought it was a cute symbol of sorts, since we used “tying the knot.” I know it’s a little cheesy, but I like it. 😀
After designing the STDs, the next step was to line the envelopes. We went to Paper Presentation and picked up some high-quality kraft-paper envelopes and loads of scrapbook paper. I clearly couldn’t pick just one, so I picked up everything that caught my eye. Mr. Pancakes picked the one with the pink elephants.
Here’s what they looked like when they were done!
And this is the final product!
Are you sending save the dates? What do yours look like?
