Love, Love, Love!

"Our Save the Dates couldn't have been more beautiful! They were thick and felt luxurious while still being in our budget! Shutterfly was amazing in assisting us in getting new envelops because I messed up the addresses on mine and since we ordered 6X8 and could not find envelops at our local stores. They sent us new envelops at no charge. They were so amazing through this and we can't wait to buy our invitations as we know that they will look amazing!"

Loved our save the dates!

"They came out great! Easy to put together and the text box was large enough to include our wedding website. Other reviews said they were blurry. Ours were not, but the background picture is faded out a bit as a background. That's actually why we picked it!"

Foil Save The Date

In the past, foil stamping was used primarily on business cards or letterheads. The thought was that the metallic finish created an industrial look for a more professional feel. Such cold-hearted professionalism has no place is the warm-fuzzy world of invitations and cards, right? Wrong! Today, foil stamping is a terrific option to consider when trying to present a high-quality image and convey the importance of the message that a card contains. What message could be more important to share than news of a big event?

Foil printing has found a home in the invitation and greeting card industry with save the date cards. Typically, these cards are reserved for those events where attendance is (at least perceived to be) more mandatory than optional. For example, you may not care if your third-cousin-who-you-last-saw-three-years-ago makes it to your wedding, but you’ll certainly want your favorite aunt to be there. Given the importance of your event, foil printing is the ideal format to use to convey your message.

Foil Stamped Points to Ponder

Remember these foil tips when crafting your save the date cards:

• While foil prints are usually done in metallic colors, they can also create a stunning look when done in white set against a dark-colored background.
• Choose a thicker style of paper when using a foil print. This helps to avoid issues with the pressing of the print, and creates an elegant imprinted final feel.
• Limit your foil printing to line art and wording. Trying to get too artistic will not only cost more, but may take much longer to complete.

Remember, too, that you aren’t done dispersing your invites after having sent your save the date cards. These are meant to serve only as a placeholder until having received your actual wedding invitations. Whether the event you’re celebrating is a wedding, graduation, or baptism, you’ll need to convey the specific details of the occasion to those you hope will attend in your invitations. Also, don’t forget to send out wedding thank you cards after the event is over.
