25. New Project
I was inspired to design wedding invitations by a friend who was feeling frustrated by the cost associated with invitations and other wedding printing needs. I had previously researched affordable, high quality printing in order to print postcards of various paintings. So, using those resources I am able offer invitations, which are affordable. I have tried to think about cost holistically by designing invitations as 5x7 to prevent the necessity of additional postage in mailing. Also, designing response cards and save the date cards as postcards to cut the cost of postage in half and eliminate the cost of envelopes.
I am in the process of developing a series of designs which feature my original watercolors. This is one of the sample invitations. I have also aimed to created environmentally responsible invitations, by using recycled card stock and eliminating envelope paper waste.
