I realized that it’s a little known fact that we design custom save-the-date cards and magnets. I’ve never written about it or have shown any on the blog! Silly me! Well, graphic design is one of my loves and I’ve been designing holiday cards, birth announcements, and invitations for myself, friends and family for years, but recently realized that I need to offer our lovely brides and grooms something too! Because I put a great deal of importance in the photograph, I design the cards so they enhance the photo and add to the over-all communication. Most save-the-dates are templates that the photo is placed into and I have found that quite often (1) the design is too busy and takes away from the photo, (2) many times the colors don’t quite work with the image, somewhat clashing and (3) the photo is just TOO small or there is a little collage of tiny tiny pictures that you have to squint at to see. This is why I started designing save-the-dates. You have to see the photo and the design needs to enhance it, not take away! When your guests receive their save-the-date, the card should make them even more excited about the wedding to come and the wonderful couple.
Here are a couple of our save-the date designs. First here’s the magnet designs. The magnets are 3″x4.5″.
Wouldn’t you just love to have something like that on your fridge?!
Ok, and now my favorite, the cards. I love these because they are unique and pretty. They are flat cards, printed on both sides on pearl card stock. We make them in two sizes, either 4×6 or 5×7.
This is the front of the card. See, it’s clean and simple and all about the photograph! I mean you could frame it!
Then on the back is all the information nicely laid out. Not cramped and crammed in. I usually have these printed with rounded corners and it just adds that final touch!
……… . So if you are having an engagement session done by K&K we’d be happy to design a custom save-the-date card or magnet. It will stand out from the standard save-the-dates and enhance your beautiful engagement photo. 🙂
