The Low-Down on DIY part 2

Good Morning!

First things first…I had a little glitch on Wednesday and you may have received a tiny little teaser of today’s post!

Good news! Today it’s the real thing!!! 😉

So, hopefully you’ve read our first little blog on this topic because we are raring to go with some tips and some realities of DIY!

The first place to start is to figure out what style of invitations you would like. Simple, one layer of paper? Something with a backing? Pocketfold?

Are you looking for something with an elaborate design? Or would understated elegance be closer to your vision?

Once you figure out those basics, it’s time to get down to business.

Are you going to design your invitation or will you hire someone to design your invitation for you?

If design isn’t one of your strengths, I have some good news for you! There are a lot of options for you!

Many designers (including little old me) offer print ready design only services.

You can also check sites like Etsy for customizable designs that you can purchase and print yourself! (We do this too!)

Check out our shop here ->
Uptown Designs on Etsy

They key is to do your research and figure out which option is best for you!

We have lots more advice on this subject so stay tuned for #3 of our DIY series coming next week!

As promised, here is my little invitation from my wedding!
