So today I am going to share some of the fruits of my labor. I am happy to say I am enfianced to a truly wonderful man and we are planning our wedding.
I've been working on the design for the invitation suite for a little while and the save-the-dates dropped just over the holidays.
I ordered the 5" x 5" kraft envelopes from an amazon shop and was pretty stoked when they sent a double order for the price of one. Ooops. :)
I ordered a custom return address rubber stamper that I designed, from this awesome company: Simon Stamp Shop. Seriously, they turned the whole thing around in under 72 hours. I give them 5 stars. A white stamper pad from Michael's, and done. [Note: The stamp isn't pictured since I placed it on the center of the envelope flap.]

Michael's also provided me with the paper for the envelope liners (this made a huge difference in the overall quality), and it invites themselves. I found the only decent paper was in the scrapbook section, sold in 12"x12" size and on sale for 25¢ a slice. Oh yeah, and simple white milky pens for addressing, which didn’t take as long as I expected!
After all that, and some assembly line printing, tearing, stuffing and sealing, they were outta here!
