Do you have any advice? (wedding invites)

Do you have any advice? (wedding invites)
I'm making my sister's wedding invitations. I've been a stamper/scrapbooker for a long time now so this isn't anything too hard for me. I was wondering if anyone else had made large event invitations before and if you did, what advice you have for me.

I'm making the invite, response cards, and wedding party programs. I might be making the thank-you's too.

Would you think it would be tacky to have my name stamped on the back so people knew who made them? I have a rubber stamp that reads "Handmade by Renee" and also one made for a small business my friend and I have together. (She might be helping me too).

  • I think it's a little tacky if it's your gift to her, not tacky if you're doing it for a fee.

    If someone wants to know who made them, they will ask.

    That being said - good luck and good scrapping!

  • I see nothing wrong with marking what you make. how else are you gonna get business? If you're doing it for free, at least use it as an advertising point :)

  • Well, Hallmark doesn't hesitate to stamp the back----with a barcode no less, so even if it is a gift think of it this way- if you gave them to her from a card company they would still be marked.

  • When I handstamp anything that I make I use a stamp that says it's specially made for a special person...(I got mine at Michael's). I also used my cutter and perforated the card stock so that the RSVP just needed to be pulled off and mailed back post card size.

    Anything handmade is always the best way to go, it speaks volumes as far as personalized.
