Adding a few more pictures of the progress:
Cutting all the corners off the invitaiton cards:
Here you can see the green edges. The paper is actually three sheets sandwiched together, so it’s white-green-white.
Blurry picture but you can see the green strip better. Green is one of my favorite colors so I had to sneak it in!
Better picture of the RSVP card to show the spot UV.
And a picture of my desk/workspace… and my cat who was very supportive of this process!

I think your cat is unwell…
Surely they should be sat on top of the stack of paper? or playing with the ruler?!
They are absolutely beautiful, you clearly have a good eye for design.

Haha she’s a very good girl, she knows not to go on my desk. She did sit in my lap pretty much the whole time I was working on the invitations, and if I dropped anything she took that to mean it was for her to play with!

You are the sweetest! I went on their website and saw the option to Spot UV– score!!! Did you find the quality for the RSVPs okay? I would love to use the Spot UV for our STDs (sent in a postcard) but it seems thinner than other options out there?

The quality is fine – not amazingly high quality, but for STDs I wouldn’t want to spend a ton on the best quality ever (there’s also a max thickness to postcards that can be sent with the cheaper stamps, at least in the US). We’ve received a few on the postcards back from guests, and they’re a little scuffed up but considering they made it to their destinations and back to us I think they held up great! I can post better pictures of those cards, would that be helpful?
Also if you’re not in a rush to send STDs, finish your design and then wait a bit. OvernightPrints often does sales, sometimes really good ones so if you have the time to be patient definitely wait! We got ours during the weekend warrior sale (they do it maybe once a month I think?). Sign up for the mailing list and they should let you know of sales!

Thank you! Oh man, that would be the ultimate compliment! I’ve gotten so much help and inspiration here so I’m happy to be able to pay it forward!
