Our save the dates

I started working on the save the dates back in August and they have been quite the process.  After the design was finished (hand-drawn typography by Zachary Smith), I scoured the internet to figure out how I should get them printed.  Originally I was going to silkscreen them white on sheets of thin, dark walnut but then I found a guy in California who was doing some really awesome detailed work on wood.

They are laser etched & cut on sheets of 2mm oak. Because of this, each one is completely unique and one of a kind because of the grain of wood or how the laser hits them.

Pricey, yes, but I am thrilled with how they came out.

I used washi tape that I ordered from Japan to seal the envelopes.  They reflect the colors and patterns that will be used in decor of our wedding.

I then ordered a roll of magnet tape so that everyone could put these on their fridge as a keepsake.

For the stamps, I ordered them through Canada post's custom stamp service - Picture Postage. They are more pricey than regular stamps but I was pretty impressed with how quickly then were printed and shipped to me.

We really hope you like them and can save the date for our big day.
