I blogged about my wedding invite card design a few days ago. The physical copies of the cards have been collected from our printer. They are ready for dissemination.
Overall, I am very satisfied with the outcome of the card and envelop design. We reduced the tone of the sky to a light shade of baby blue to give it a more pastel, cheery look. The artwork was printed on Japanese wood-free textured paper for a hand-drawn, manga feel.
For the envelop, we bought the light-weight air-mail variety for thematic unity with the “flying” theme. The Chinese “double happiness” character was manually punched, one by one, by Rachel and I with a paper cutter we specially bought.
When I passed my parents their portion of the wedding cards and envelops, my mom was amused by the effort and cost we put into these as she felt people will just “take and throw”. I
told her it reflects our sincerity and we hope to spread our joy to everyone, with a little personal touch. The invite card is the first thing our friends and relatives will receive regarding the wedding and it’s important to give the right first impression.
