Tie The Knot Wedding Invitations

These invitations turned out the be pretty cool. We did everything ourselves from the wedding invitation design to the embossing of envelopes and mailing. My friends over at AlphaGraphics took care of the printing and cutting for me.

Since we are a little unconventional we decided that our wedding invites should be unconventional, starting with the fact that we never mentioned the word "wedding" on the invitations.

The only real graphical element, the knots, was found by complete accident in an old manual that I had found. I scanned the image and did some minor clean up in Adobe Illustrator.

The artwork was imported into the layout that I had created in Adobe InDesign.

The invitation card stock and envelopes were purchased from www.paper-source.com.

Invitation envelopes

The origami paper, purchased from Michael's craft store, was cut to size, lightly glued and placed in the envelopes. The envelopes were embossed with our return address on the flap (also purchased from Paper Source). A friend of mine owns a local print shop and handled the printing free of charge.
