- Wedding: June 2010
ok. i’ve been putting off my invitations for as long as i could. my wedding is coming up quickly (too quickly!) so this weekend we decided that we would just go to the printing company here in town and let them do them for us. i already knew exactly how i wanted them to look. i even had one all put together so that i could show them what i wanted. well…they told me they couldn’t do it due the fact that the lady was sooo sure she had seen the kiss in times square picture on time magazine and that they would not be able to make my invites because of copyright laws. ugh! so, with a bummed attitude i left the printing company and headed to staples to get the stuff i needed to diy them myself.
i also decided that i wanted to buy a different computer program that would make it easier for me to create these invites. while i was in the isle looking at all the diff computer programs and not sure which one to get, a lady walked up and asked if i needed help. i told her i couldn’t decide on what program to buy and when i told her why i was buying one she asked me if i had talked with their printing center about my invites. i hadn’t because i made the mistake of assuming i would shot down by them also because of copywright laws.
the very nice lady at staples then walked me over to the lady who worked at the printing/copying counter. they had no issue with what i wanted! and it ended up being cheaper to have them do it than for me to buy all the stuff i need to diy them myself! my invites are being printed on cardstock. they’re costing me 16 cents per sheet with 2 invites per sheet. they’re also cutting them out for me which is only going to cost me $16 total. i ended up getting my invites ordered today for $65 total for 200 invitations AND they’ll be ready for me to pick them up tomorrow! the only other thing i had to purchase for them is envelopes and stamps. ive already got my rsvp cards.
so yeah…i got excited about going to the printing company to get my invites taken care of only to get bummed out and then got excited again at staples! it ended up being a great day! and its a monday! lol!
