@PacificMrs: Thanks! I am in love with Cards & Pockets now – I couldn’t believe how quickly items were shipped! The seal was FI’s idea and he carefully sealed each one for me!!

@pengoala: Thank you!
@JLR1982: The seal was my FI’s idea and I tracked down a personalized anchor one to coordinate with our theme.

These are fantastic! Did you have Cards and Pockets print for you, or did you print at home? FI and I are debating which way to go on that, as our laser printer HATED printing on the sample paper.

Gorgeous! Love the theme, navy blue is such an awesome colour.

@ArtDecoDC: I printed on my own because I couldn’t really decide on a design and I wanted to experiment with the number of inserts. My printer actually couldn’t handle the cardstock for the inserts. One of my friends who had recently gotten married actually bought a HP Photosmart C4200 printer for her invitations so she let me borrow it. It worked perfectly!
