Maggie’s save the date


We wanted to get the word out about our holiday weekend destination wedding early. Marit Hanson‘s concert poster Save the Dates were perfect for us – setting a “not to be missed” tone from the start, and perfect for two live music-lovers! We’re still getting compliments about them.

Leshia’s save the date


I have really enjoyed reading your blog while planning my upcoming wedding. You have a lot of unique, creative ideas that are so refreshing amidst the wedding hoopla!
Anyway, I thought I would share our save the date. We wanted to do something quirky, and decided to have our pets pose together; the dog is my fiance’s, and the cat is mine. They are actually wearing the signs, but we Photoshopped the text onto the signs. Our guests seem to think it’s pretty fun!

Natalie’s save the dates


I’ve been watching your save the date series and thought I would try to submit mine even though I might be a little late, but I just finished printing these yesterday!

Our wedding is going to be cozy/casual with lots of green and wooden elements. I’m a graphic designer who is fortunate enough to work in a studio that also has a C+P letterpress, so I designed and printed these save the date postcards for our wedding.

We wanted to give our visitors a taste of the wooden elements to come with the wood grain, and I went a step further with it by drawing a heart with our initials in it as if it were carved into the wood. We also came up with the idea of using the “tying the knot” wording to have fun with some wood puns (we’ll probably doing things like, “Wood you join us at our wedding?” for our invitation). All of the bold type on the front and back of the card is hand drawn (it took forever), and the first side of the postcard is a darker cream color while the other side is a lighter cream color.

Save the date submissions

Wow, I am so thrilled with the response to the save the date series…never did I think so many people would submit, and are STILL submitting! Since I’ve still got a bunch to show, lets do one more week, and then move on to something else, does that work for everyone? If you’ve got STD’s you want to share, email them to me by this upcoming TUESDAY at the latest, and include ALL the information you want to share.

And for those of you asking about the 2nd Annual Holiday Card Swap….information is coming soon….:)
