Adventures in Gold Foil Invitation Design
This summer I have had the great pleasure to design invitations for my friends and family. Other than making one wedding invitation for a school project, I never really had the chance or reason to step into the world of stationary. That was until my friend Kaitlin let me design her wedding invitations this spring.
Her theme was a gorgeous but simple. The color palette was black, grey, gold and white and the couple wanted polka dots at the top but other than that, they let me do whatever I wanted! When I saw that gold was in the range of colors I knew it had to be gold foil. Only one problem: I've never printed with gold foil before. My solution came after searching wedding boards and forums - catprint.com
CatPrint, as their website says, offers high quality short run digital printing at amazingly affordable prices. This makes them a great solution for a DIY wedding invite. As impressed as I was about the ease of the process and the actual physical invitation quality, I was ecstatic about their customer service. Foil printing jobs must be emailed in to ensure the printing is done correctly. Every step of the process was easy and anything I needed help with or had questions about was answered promptly and courteously. A+ customer service CatPrint! Here's the final product:
I also went on to design the couple's ceremony program and took adorable engagement photos for their guestbook canvas.
After loving how the wedding invites and RSVP cards came out, I used CatPrint again for my niece's 1st birthday party invitations. Gold foil for the firefly themed Summer birthday. Her mom even took the invite to Magpies Bakery so they could use the design to make the cake. I'm in love with how it all turned out!
So if you're in need of an economic and quality way to print just about anything, I definitely recommend CatPrint! Now I'll leave you with a gallery of photos from the sunset engagement shoot I did for Kaitlin and Robert.
