    I wouldn’t give them out directly at someone else’s event.

    I wouldn’t give them out at the even that you’re thinking of, but I think it would be fine to give if you see these people otherwise. At someone else’s birthday probably isn’t appropriate though.

    I personally would mail them just because I really enjoy getting mail that isn’t bills or junk.

    I gave most of mine out in person. Still have a few to mail out. However, the ones I gave in person definately received theirs faster. I am a slight procrastinator when it comes to things as such but for the ones I have to mail out I am waiting for professional photos to come back on USB drive so I can order prints cheaper than through her website. I want to give them a thank you note with a professional pic of me and husband and pic of themselves at teh wedding. So its taking a bit longer because there are a few pics she has to finish editing.
