Graduation Announcements

We first met Marianne in 2012 when she hired us to create her custom designed wedding invitation. She was great to work with, so we were obviously thrilled to recently receive an email from her asking us to design two upcoming announcements. 1. Graduation Announcement and 2. baby announcement!

Marianne is graduating from Utah State University in April 2015. Having worked with us a few years ago made everything simple for both us and Marianne. She included 5 portraits and the information she wanted us to include on the announcement.

In a couple months, after her baby is born, Marianne will send us newborn portraits of her new baby, and we will create a custom designed baby announcement! We are excited to be able to participate in Marianne’s exciting life events. Wedding. Graduation. Baby.

 

Photo Collage

WeddingThumbnail66

A popular style of wedding announcement is called a photo collage. We’ve all seen a similar style, in fact, there’s a good chance you have one stuck with a magnet to the front of your refrigerator. At Announce The Day, we love helping you design the custom designed wedding invitations, and photo collages are one of the more popular options we offer.

When it comes to designing a photo collage, there are some important details that must be considered. First, it is important to remember that the more pictures you want to use, the smaller each image will need to be in order to make it fit on a 5”x7” card. A picture of you and your fiancé walking through the woods looks great, but not if the entire image is only one square inch. Next, you need variety. Very often, a couple’s favorite pictures are posed very similarly. View your favorite images on your computer and compare them to each other. Look for variety in your images. Does your fiancé consistently stand to your right with his arm around you? The last thing you want is to have a mosaic with 3 or 4 nearly identical images. Be creative, and consider multiple poses.

A bride once brought a file of images to me. She really loved a particular image of her and her fiancé walking along a sandy beach in California. She really wanted to use it as the main image of a collage. Unfortunately, this was the only image from that trip to the beach. The other images were from a mountain scene in the fall with beautiful red and orange autumn colors. When I opened all of the images and showed her the differences, it was easy to see that this wouldn’t look good.

 Follow these steps

1. Look for a variety of poses.

2. Consider how your choice images might look if they are only one square inch in size on the final invitation.

3.Follow a theme.

At Announce The Day, we want you to be happy with your custom designed wedding invitations, and if you consider these steps, we’ll be able to help you find complete satisfaction. Call 208-709-7892 today for a free consultation.

True love since 16!

WeddingZoom136

Taylor and Jordan have been dating since they were 16 years old. High school sweethearts, lovebirds, whatever you want to call them.

Taylor’s mom recently contacted me asking me to help her daughter design her wedding invitations. She explained that Taylor had returned from her LDS mission a few months ago, and was now attending BYU. Her fiancé, Jordan had been home from his mission for just one month.

The two love birds met with me in Orem, and we talked about custom designed wedding invitations. We compared paper samples, envelope colors, and looked at their pictures to create a mosaic style two-sided wedding invitation.

It was easy to agree on which image to use for the front of the invitation. Notice the open space to the left where we were able to nicely add the couples exciting news! On the back, the couple is shown on the far right, revealing about two thirds of open space to the left. This was a perfect area to add the three additional images of the young couple. It is easy to see that these two are happily in love!

DaLynn’s Story

WeddingZoom135At Announce The Day, our number one goal is to satisfy our brides. We understand that you have a budget, and you need to be careful where you spend your money.

DaLynn approached us recently to set up an appointment to talk about the options with her custom-designed wedding invitations. Dalynn’s brother Taylor was interested in graphic design, and thought it would be fun to design his sister’s invitation. DaLynn asked us if she could save money going this route. The answer was YES!

Dalynn and Taylor came for a consultation to discuss their options. They were still in need of a good printer for the job. Because neither of them were experienced in the printing industry, they had a lot of questions to ask. We showed them paper samples, envelope options, and we even looked at the digital files Taylor created. We shared a few tips, and then they left.

About a week later, DaLynn sent us the completed files, and we were able to order her custom designed wedding invitations, and best of all, she saved $100 by letting Taylor do the design work!

After receiving her invitations, we received a text from Dalynn. It said, “Thanks again for my announcements. I am very pleased with them. They are really well done!”

Panoramic 4″x9″

WeddingZoom64WeddingZoom6

If you are looking for a non-traditional option for your custom designed wedding invitations, a fun option can be to go with a 4″x9″ panoramic layout instead of the more traditional option of a 5″x7″. As you can see, whether you go landscape or portrait, this layout can be the perfect option for your custom designed wedding invitations.

  • 4″x9″ invitations can be mailed in a standard #10 envelope, which means nearly any style of envelope you find will be available in this size! 
  • Postage rages for a #10 envelope will be the standard rate of one postage stamp.
  • This pleasing layout will be appealing not only to you, but to those who receive an invitation. While it is little less traditional than most invitations, it will grab the attention of your guests.

At Announce The Day, our goal is to help you find an option that fits your style, your wedding, and your dream! Call 208-709-7892 today and set up an appointment for your custom designed wedding invitations!
