Lisa and Brandon’s Save the Date Tags

Lisa and Brandon’s Save the Date Tags turned out so cute and we are all happy to say they they too, are in the mail. This project was definitely an experiment for me since this was the first time I’ve designed a set of tags for anything, let alone a save the date, but as soon as Lisa told me about it, I knew it was a great idea that we just had to do. I also knew trial and error was going to be a big part of this project from the paper to the printer to the envelope wraps. More on those envelope wraps to come. A big thank you to Lenny’s Copy Center for being able to print 100# cover, which was a necessary request to make these tags have the sturdiness they needed, when the larger print shops couldn’t (or wouldn’t) do it. I called every print shop in the book and they all turned me down because it wasn’t a big enough job for them to want to take it on. And not only could Lenny print them for me, he charged half the price of my usual printer. (Score!) Once we managed to get them printed, the tags were hand cut into a tag shape, hole punched and tied together with a thin black twine. They came in a set of three, tags one and two had their general save the date info, and on the third tag Lisa and Brandon wanted to use one of their beautiful engagement photos taken by E.C. Campbell Photography. Her photography is amazing guys, you should check it out if you haven’t already. More on Lisa and Brandon’s wedding coming soon. We are currently in the process of designing their wedding invitations and stationery, which will follow suit on the teal and black theme from their save the dates.  More photos of their save the dates here.
