Zane and I went back to the little shop that said they could print our save the dates. They told us that I’d have to remake all of them and just bring in the center 5x5 square without the Mickey punch because their printer wouldn’t print with the two layers of paper. They showed us a proof on a plain printer page with a cursive font for our names and a century gothic type straight font for the rest. It looked nice and would only cost us 20 bucks to print all 36 cards. Since I’d have to go buy all new paper and cut it, we couldn’t do it until Monday.
When we got home, I decided to play around with it myself. After all, they were just using a regular printer anyway. After sacrificing two cards, one being upside down and one with the font not quite big enough, this is what I ended up with.
I have to say, I’m honestly impressed with myself. I know all I did was cut some paper and download the Disney font off the internet and put in paper settings for the printer, but seriously… this is about where we would have ended up 20 dollars later (minus the Disney print which is probably my favorite part). I don’t know why we didn’t try this in the first place. I’m so happy with them!
I decided not to put those quotes on them though… they just don’t really need them. Maybe on the formal invites? We might as well just make those too…
Anyway, I’d call today a success!
I’m cleaning out the desk and coffee table chest and I keep finding tons of those little Mickey punches and scraps from making these. I still love them and I’m so glad I put the work into making them.
I’m getting anxious to start my scrapbook!
Ashley and I got the purple one!! I think Otto and Chris got the purple teal and red one!! <3
