Wedding invitations...


It is hard to show how 150 invitations stack up!!!!Let's put it this way, the cards are 5 by 7 which means each card takes over a foot of ribbon.....which means it takes over 50 YARDS of ribbon to complete them! There are six individual pieces for each invitation, in addition to two eyelets. That is 900 individual pieces that have to be printed, cut, scored, embossed, stamped, or folded....plus 300 eyelets to be set....just the scoring requires six passes on each (900 total) invitation on my Scor It to do the center score and decorative scoring. I just feel that the decorative scoring and the use of the nestabilities for the monogram are such classy looks that I had to do them.
But I am almost finished!!!YEAH!!!! This is one package for which I welcome the trip to the post office. I hope the bride and recipients enjoy them.
Thanks for looking!

These are beautiful! I have made wedding invatations for my Granddaughter's wedding (150). Later made another 150 invatations for her best friend's wedding. It takes a lot of time and money!
You did such a beautiful job!

The invites are elegant and classy. I don't know how you did it. In addition to all the repetitive scoring for each one, the ribbon, etc., you actually made 150(plus probably some extras) of the same thing!! I salute you!
