Planning to make your own wedding invitations?? This workshop is for you! As part of our 20th Anniversary celebration we are offering a selection of low cost, highly creative workshops that feature the wonderful talents of our On Paper team. Join us for an inspired afternoon!

On Paper has been creating wedding invitations for twenty years, so to say we are experts in our field, it's not just tooting our own horn. In this workshop we will give you tried and true tips and tricks to help you make your wedding invitations like a pro. If you are already in progress with your design, feel free to bring a lap top and your files so we can review your design and make suggestions before it goes to print.

In this class we will cover:

  • How to estimate the proper quantity of invitations you will need
  • Parts and pieces- what insert cards do you need
  • Design ideas - a quick review of current trends
  • Fonts - text fonts and accent fonts / what looks best
  • Creating an art file - basic overview in Adobe Illustrator
  • What is a bleed, and does your file need one
  • Wording - etiquette and suggested wording
  • Ribbons, bows, and belly bands
  • Layering
  • Printing options if you want On Paper to print your design for you
  • What types of card stock will work best if you are printing your own invitations 
  • How to maximize quantity per sheet
  • Envelopes and standard sizes
