Lately, more and more brides turn to the internet to view and look at wedding invitations – it’s economical and it’s easy to do while you are at work. Some brides have their invitations “custom” made and more and more are trying to go the DIY route.
Let me tell you a secret – its not really saving you that much money, at least not enough to compensate you for the time and ink spent on printing them all off.
Below are the wedding albums that we carry in our shop for brides to view. The biggest benefit of actually going to a location to view the different kinds of invitations in these huge 20 pound books is that you can actually see the colors and touch the print before you purchase them. Some invitation companies will send you a sample for free or for a price, but 80% of them send them blank – so you can’t even see how the type set is. We’ll get into the different types of those in another post.
