Tips for making invitations en masse:
- Listen to the bride and groom to be. It's a given that their opinion is important here and they're trusting you with setting the first impressions of the mood for their wedding.
- Think economically. How many cards can you squeeze into one A4 sheet with minimal leftovers?
- Incorporate the wedding colours.
- Keep it simple - the more detail, the more time consuming it is to reproduce.
- Use a quality laser printer and paper for graphics (photos, digital stamps, text etc).- Consider a magnet for the back so guests can keep it handy on the fridge. I picked some strong sticky ones up from the local print shop for 6c each.
