Amy & Matt's Save the Date

I had the chance to design a very cool vintage Save the Date Postcard for Amy & Matt (referred to me by the lovely Joan of Five Grain Events).

When Amy and I first started on the design she had been looking to make an e-Save the Date that would be emailed out. We ended up transitioning to a snail mail Save the Date Postcard instead. Side Note - for any couples that are wondering whether to go paperless - keep in mind that all of your recipients may not be fluent in the computer world and that could mean missed Rsvp's. Also, since paper is a renewable resource (many paper companies have taken great measures to reduce their carbon footprint) and many printers are turning to eco-friendly inks, going with a paper version for your Invitation or Save the Date is actually an eco-friendly move.

Details for Amy & Matt's Save the Date Postcard:
• 110# Natural White Cover Stock - this paper was FSC Certified,
100% Carbon Neutral and manufactured with 100% renewable energy

• Digitally Printed with an
environmentally friendly printing company
• 2-sided Postcard
• Size: 4" x 6"
• Colors: chocolate brown and a muted gold
• Theme: 20's/30's Vintage

Amy & Matt had an adorable picture (
taken by a friend) that they wanted to use on the front of the card. This picture set the theme for the overall look of the Save the Date.

Thanks Amy & Matt for letting me be a part of the creation of your very special day!
