I finally found the perfect save-the-date cards. After months of searching for the PERFECT one, I finally decided that instead of ordering “cookie cutter” cards that I wanted to find someone, who would design the ones I wanted in the way I wanted.
Another factor in my save-the-date cards was the fact that, like everything wedding related, they are yet another expense. In talking with a coworker of mine, I found out there her husband owned a sign and graphics company in my community and would able to design a postcard-like save the date card that I really wanted to do. Working with a company besides a traditional wedding-inspired company gave me many options at a fraction of the cost. I wanted to ease of having my cards printed as postcards for all of our outside invites but also to cut back on the cost of postage. I submitted my ideas to her husband and he worked with me on the design to create a save-the-date card that was specifically what I wanted, sending me proof after proof until it was perfect.
