With his upcoming wedding in mind, Colin decided that the wedding invitation they mailed to their guests needed to be self-mailable — meaning no envelopes. And beautiful, of course. And budget conscious.

So he created a poster that folds into itself creating a self-mailer. A simple postcard was then created for the reply card, which was wrapped inside the invitation to provide further rigidity for mailing.

And with all things DIY, there was a little pain to be endured:

Folding 100 invitations by hand = not so much fun.
