Graphic Designer: Check!

My search for a graphic designer to design and process my wedding invitations went ever so smooth. Not only are they halfway paid for, but the stationer is going to start on the custom design concept this week. The printing production won't start until the beginning of next year because 1) I don't have the room to store them, and 2) I don't want the paper to fade or experience any other horrific ordeals.

I decided on thermography style printing. I absolutely love the way the raised lettering and images feel and the glossy look to it. The image below shows an example of how thermography printing looks, but the picture doesn't really do it justice.

*This is not the design or company I'm working with.

I didn't totally escape the diy process of invites, I will still have to assemble them and package them up {which is nothing is comparison to what I was going to do before}. I've also been toying with the thought of calligraphy, but as of now, pretty lables sound like a great plan.

In the meantime, I'm embarrased to admit that I have yet to start collecting people's addresses for the guest list. I don't know what I'm waiting for, but this something I need to start on ASAP.
