Lollipop Event and Design recently posted a comprehensive start-to-finish narrative, including all the design comps of our STD design in From Inspiration to Creation here.
I wish we had the budget to hire Lollipop to design our invitations, but we can't afford to. So I have been looking at inexpensive alternatives.
Paperless Post is a beta site I came across that offers users to:
- Design custom online invitations and announcements
- Deliver personalized envelopes to your guests' inboxes
- Monitor as guests receive your invitations, and track their replies
- Manage invitations you have received
Another alternative we've considered is printing our invites on postcards with instructions directing our guests to RSVP on our website. Over the weekend, I won 100 custom postcards on bride blogger @QueButtons' (aka Katie Olsen) terrific blog, Random Thoughts of a Perfectionist! She had partnered with UPrinting.comhttp://www.uprinting.com/, an online print and brochure design service that lets users easily create or upload designs for fast printing at an affordable price. Visit Katie's website for more adventures in planning a wedding!
Would you consider going budget and green for your invitations?
