Show us your STD? Picture below

Where did you get it from? I ordered them from 123print.com.  I love that site! 

Why did you decided to get it? I liked the purple scroll design on the side and it was the absolute cheapest I could find anywhere.  Super nice!  

Did you make and design it yourself? Used the template from the site and just changed the font and layout of the text a bit.

Did you give them out already? Yes, we gave them out two weeks ago.  Managed to save plenty on postage since a large amount are coworkers and we just passed them out instead of mailing. 

Sorry for the super small image of the backside!  Had to edit our information and it saved super small!

Where did you get it from? we made them 

Why did you decided to get it? we came up with the idea when we saw a calender magnet during our venue search.  then we customized it using details from our venue, theme and invites.

Did you make and design it yourself? yup, everything was from scratch.

Did you give them out already? Yes, we sent them in November because most of our guests are an hour from the venue, plus its on a sunday.

Where did you get it from? Vistaprint. We went with oversized postcards. 

Why did you decided to get it? I saw a similar design on another website but it was way too much money, so I designed it myself in Illustrator!

Did you make and design it yourself? Yes, save for the vistaprint template used for a guideline

Did you give them out already? Yes, they went out about 2 weeks ago! Everyone loved them. I still have a few more to send out as I was waiting on addresses from my fmil and mom, but I was impatient and couldn’t wait to get the majority out.

Where did you get it from? Design concept from Martha Stewart Weddings; designed in Power Point and ordered through Vista Print.

Why did you decided to get it? We knew we weren’t going to have engagement pics done in time to send out Save the Dates so we wanted something fun and interactive for the guests. Plus, I love lottery BINGO tickets, and thought the scratch off idea was cute.

Did you make and design it yourself? Self-designed utilizing a Martha Stewart idea for inspiration. Painted all 150 hearts using 2 parts acrylic paint and 1 part dish soap.

Did you give them out already? Yes…and everyone loved them, including the penny we included for them to scratch.  My fiance’s friends at work were mad b/c their wives had already scratched them off before they got home to do it themselves.
