Project Description

These wedding invitations were designed for a relative, and the only requirement was to use the color purple. The cards took a victorian adaptation with a fun illustrative theme. The invitations were printed via laser jet, and folded/assembled by hand costing under $100.

Production Lesson(s)

I was amazed at the professional appeal of this project with just a xerox printer and a multi-cutter. The turn around time including designing and printing was one week, which is an incredible accomplishment for me. Part of this was the instant nature of digital printing. The most amazing thing about this is that it cost under $100, which made my client happy as clams. The table cards & menus were designed after the invitations were mailed out. These took a little more time and were die-cut. ”
