Labour of Love

J and M Wedding Invites


1)       Colour motif is royal blue (with Silver) – I find blue masculine for a wedding
2)      Paper open size is restricted to maximum of A4 as we will be printing digitally, off-set will be too expensive with the quantity required of 130 nos
3)      After choosing from the initial proposed designs, Bride wanted to include their photo (not my specialization)

Final Product

·         Cover   

o    Blue colour boards folded into A5-size portrait, with 2 ends meeting at the centre
o    Die cut with asymmetrical coordinated waves
o    2 diagonal slits to hold loose inserts
o    2 punch holes at the centre to insert danglers 

·    Loose inserts

o    3 pcs loose inserts printed on 250 gsm linen textured white paper
o    Cut smaller than A5 to fit into the cover
o    Inserted through 2 slits, one on the upper left corner and one on the lower right corner

·         Finishing touches put together

o    Pearl-finish paper dangler with rounded corners and one side cut with wave to match the cover, punched at one corner, hung diagonally
o    75mm-thick Silver colour ribbon made into a tiny bow
o    Silver coated elastic cord to hold the dangler and bow, looped into the two punch holes at the cover
