How have I been blogging about budget-minded, hand-crafted, eco-friendly weddings for more than two years and I'm just getting around to finding out about the website Download & Print (thanks to another amazing website, iDiY)?
Wow. Double wow. Anna Skye is my new creative hero. She designs invitations for babies, weddings, showers, and parties. And then lets you download them for free. And, to top it all off, she gives you step-by-step directions for how to print them (like what kind of paper to use, etc.).
I am aghast. I am ecstatic. I am so appreciative!
I'm often torn about invitations. On the one hand, I think they are a huge waste of time, money, and environmental resources. When I get invitations in the mail, I honestly write down the important information and then toss everything into the recycling. When I get invitations enclosed within envelopes that are enclosed within more envelopes that contain an envelope, I cynically think to myself, "Couldn't you have sent me a dollar instead of wasting all your money on postage?"
On the other hand, I love, love, love good graphic design. I love handwritten letters and pretty things that arrive in the mail.
This site seems to offer the best of both world! Not too much hassle on the invitations, while still producing an amazing result.
Thank you, Anna!
