As wedding planners, there is so much information that we have learned over the years that we love to share with brides. We call these ‘secrets’ our ‘tricks of the trade.’ Some key tricks of the trade to remember when looking for invitations include:
– Copyright Ownership! Some vendors will want you to pay extra to use their logo or design on your website. Look into copyright if you plan on using your invitations for other than just print.
– Be aware that sometimes vendors advertise that they are ‘custom’ but actually they are customizing templates. Ask questions to help keep your costs down.
– Be aware of extra costs involved for digital proofs, sample prints and more. Ask when reviewing your contract if they are included in your package.
– Always order 20% more than what is needed. You might end up with a few left over, but if you go back and have to print more later, it will be more expensive.
Now for some invites that we love…
