Does anyone have a template for a pocket invitation with 3 – 4 response cards?
I’ve had a design I’ve been working on for a long time, but finally feel like I hit pay dirt yesterday.
IE, I’d like to have the words below in Navy in black or navy, and the elements below in gold, gold foiled. I kind of also want to put our picture on the right, I have a graphic element to the bottom left corner (that I’m not advertising yet), and the date I have layered in the same scripty/block font fashion… and then on the front of our postcard, I have a lovely little phrase at the bottom that I kind of also want in gold foil, so we’re talking gold foil on two sides and overlapping text.
This is the problem with being a designer, y’all
For your design I think doing the inkjet black or navy first would be your best option. Then I would just remove that from your design so you only print the areas you want foiling through a laser printer. That way you wouldn’t have any issues with it picking up extra toner in the overlapping text.
I have to share mine soon too. I did decide to use foil though I had to change it a little bit. The cardstock that I bought was too heavy to really attach the foil properly. It was sad to have to completely change my vision. I ended up decided to just foil our names on the main invite. I was going to foil the title of the 3 details cards too but it didn’t work out. I changed it to use ribbon instead. I’m actually shocked at how creative I am after making these invitations.
I still have a few dozen to make but the first set included me sitting at a kitchen table all day with my family the day after Christmas. None of them live here so I needed as much help as possible while I was there.
