Since I’ve shown you our engagement pictures, I thought I’d detail to you the process by which we handmade our STDs. (They just went out in the mail—yay!) We will be repeating this process for the invitations, which will be more complex, so I thought I’d introduce you to the process with our simple, single note card STDs.
Officiant K is an aspiring graphic designer, and was really eager to design and make our STDs and our invitations. We, of course, wanted to be heavily involved in the process.
The first step, designing, was a lot of fun. We spent nights on our couch with music playing and picked out fonts, sizes, paper, and colors and designed the entire thing from scratch, without any sort of template or guideline.
Early on, we had found some clip art on Etsy made by ThePenAndBrush, and we decided to use this as inspiration for our invitations. We bought the clip art (it’s SO cute!) and started designing.
Once we had the pattern made, we began the screen-printing process.
