Printing for your Wedding Taken to A Whole New Level
The time leading up to your wedding is filled with both excitement and stress.
Your to-do list is likely a mile long, no matter what type of wedding you’re planning. Printing is probably a large part of that list, starting with your Save the Dates and going all the way through to the thank-you cards you send after the big event.
When you find a trusted resource for all your printing, it takes some of the pressure off. But with the right finishing, you can also make all your wedding materials stand out. Here’s a summary of all the print needs to consider as you’re preparing for your big day.
The first impression you make on your future wedding guests is through your invitations. Many choose to start with a Save the Date mailing, followed by wedding invitations that include RSVP cards. The type of paper you choose can set the right tone, whether you opt for cotton fiber, vellum, a linen finish, or pearlescent. But laser cutting can add a unique touch to those materials, carving shapes into your chosen paper type.
As the date draws closer, there will be at last one bridal shower thrown in your honor. Typically, this is handled by the bridal party and/or the mother of the happy couple. There are plenty of ways they can make your bridal party invitation unique, including adding a coating to take even the simplest invite to the next level. It’s a very affordable touch that makes a big difference.
Traditionally, individual printed programs were handed out that listed the order of events, as well as any other messaging the couple wanted. Today, programs are still a part of wedding ceremonies, but some couples choose to have the information printed on a sign. Whatever your format, there are plenty of techniques that can make it pop, including foil stamping and embossing.
The fun doesn’t end once the officiant declares you husband and wife. You’ll need print materials for your reception, as well, starting with your welcome signs and continuing with the table numbers and name place cards. You may also choose to have printed menus at each place setting, although some couples also choose to have this displayed on a single sign. Also, consider having a custom-printed guestbook for your gift table.
In the weeks following your wedding, you’ll need to set aside time to write personal thank-you notes to each guest who attended. You can buy thank-you cards in bulk, but you’ll leave a lasting impression by creating custom-finished thank-you cards that match your other print materials.
Long after your wedding day, you’ll look back on these print materials as mementos of a wonderful day. Lamination can help you preserve keepsakes like your wedding invitation and program, ensuring you’ll be able to enjoy them for a lifetime.
