Show us your STD? BELOW! It’s designed by us and printed via Vistaprint onto recyced paper postcards. We also bought vintage looking stamps! We’ll address them by hand too.

Where did you get it from? We found old postcards and used Adobe Photoshop to make the info match us. (FNB 10.04 is Fox & Bear, our nicknames and the date we were engaged). Fiance drew the whole front. he got the idea from Politican posters in the 1800s.  🙂 he’s so talented haha. The back of the postcard was me. Type and everything.  🙂

Why did you decided to get it?  We came up with the idea together and went with it.

Did you make and design it yourself? The whole darn thing from start til end!

Did you give them out already? Not yet, they are still being processed! hopefully soon!

Where did you get it from? Ordered from Staples.com with a great coupon!  The back has a little more info, but it’s just boring printed black-and-white text.  The finished version also has our website URL below the location.

Did you make and design it yourself? FI did all the computer design work, though I did the original mockup (with crayons in my sketchbook!).  They are specially designed to go together with our invitations,  If you lay them out together they will make a whole picture!

Did you give them out already? Yep, we handed out a few to his family at Easter and the rest went in the mail a couple weeks ago.  I threw a sprinkling of silver star confetti in each envelope as well and several people report opening them and getting showered in stars!

Show us your STD? Picture below

Where did you get it from? MagnetStreet. 

Why did you decided to get it? We are having an Italian Film Festival theme – the Invites look like old fashioned movie theatre tickets kind of, and we wanted something on-theme, but a little more fun for the Save the Dates. I even ordered little popcorn envelope seals to put on them.

Did you make and design it yourself? I used the template on the site but chose which pictures I wanted, the colors, and the font.

Did you give them out already? No, I am in the process of packing and moving everything I own, but they will all be sent out by next weekend!
