Saving the date and keeping my sanity

April 21, 2013

After all that time after making my save the date cards, I never got around to putting them in envelopes and mailing them out. Sounds so easy to do but when it comes down to the nitty gritty it ain’t. I wanted to press our address on the envelopes instead of printing them out (seemed too blah to me), finally got the plates (yay!) and got them pressed.

But then I ran into a dilemma, the envelopes looked way too boring to me, so I decided to press the envelopes a 2nd time, and then a 3rd (yea I can’t seem to make up my mind) to add just a little touch to the graphic. I think they came out well considering the weight of the envelope is only 70lb.

The work isn’t even beginning, I still have to make the official invitations and make it in enough time to get my plates made for it. Plus all the other non invitation wedding things that need to be taken care of. I never realized how hard it was to plan a wedding, but I am going to make the best of it. I hope you enjoy the pictures of the save the date cards.

There were a lot of trial runs with the press, to the point of frustration but I finally got my inking down pact and almost perfect. I’m actually sick today but I couldn’t sit still and looking over at those un-printed envelopes was driving me insane! Hopefully my next post will consist of some venue photos (my mom is doing a kick-ass job), it is gorgeous!
