I decided to design our invitation suite myself since I had a vision in mind that I couldn’t find anywhere ready-made.
It was great to be able to customize our invitations, including a tag that we decided to add when my brother unexpectedly passed away on April 14th. (We struggled a lot with whether or not we felt ready to continue with the wedding as planned, but Johnny was so excited about it and he was so passionate about enjoying life and being happy.)
Here’s the breakdown of where I made/printed/purchased each element of our invites:
Main Invite Card: Front: Microsoft Word, Back (Map): PowerPoint (over a Google Maps image)- Printed at Ryerson University’s CopyRite
RSVP Tag: Front & Back Made on Microsoft Word – Printed at The Printing House (TPH)
Grey Tag: PowerPoint – Printed at TPH
Envelopes: http://www.envelopes.com (A7 (5 1/4 x 7 1/4) – Grocery Bag w/ peel & stick flap) – Highly recommended.
Envelope Wrap-Around Labels: Template made in PowerPoint, printed onto 8.5″x11″ label stickers (from Staples) at Ryerson’s CopyRite, then I cut them to size with a paper cutter.
Fonts: Ostrich Sans & Raleway Thin (downloaded for free online) & I used Times for the big, green ampersand
Twine: local dollar store
Here are some (non-pro) pics of how they turned out (contact information smudged for confidentiality):
