Client Spolight: Rachel & Kamal

Being a bride in 2008 I have made quit a few "net buddies" over the last year and a half. On one of the message boards I am apart of, Rachel mentioned that her original invitation designer was no longer able to complete her invitations, so I offered to help her out. Rachel supplied us with the artwork because she already had a theme and wanted to continue with it. We completed the layout and printed everything on linen cardstock with matching envelopes.

Rachel wanted to take her invites even further, so she put her DIY hat on, and decided to mount the invite in a pocketfold. With a customized label from her invitation is finished and ready for mailing.

Well done Rachel, and congtats on your upcoming nuptials!

If you have the room in your budget this is definitely a splurge and worth it. If you can't find the room then regular postage stamps will do, and you will save a ton of $$. also offers the same service, as well as a slew of other sites, so compare prices to get the most bang for your buck.
