Fresh Idea: Computer Generated Invitation Addressing
If you are getting married usually you have to address several wedding invitations. Michelle King shows us an easier way to label your invites in this Fresh Idea.
Traditionally wedding invites are supposed to be addressed by hand, but that can get out of control when there are hundreds upon hundreds to send out.
Now there's a way that you can print calligraphy on your invites without dipping in any ink.
Kathy Scott recently helped plan a dream wedding for her daughter. She was looking for a way to efficiently address over 500 wedding announcements in the middle of the holiday season.
“We were ready for any kind of help we could to get through this the season and through the wedding,” Kathy said.
Calligraphy by Computer of Salt Lake is company that uses calligraphy fonts printed right on the envelopes.
“This is way for them to look like their all hand addressed and yet not have to go thru all that work,” said wedding consultant Sharon Larkin.
This company has over 50 fonts to choose from and also prints the inner envelopes if the bride and groom desire.
“It was just beautiful. I had several comments from people saying how beautiful they looked,” said Kathy.
Calligraphy By Computer offers its clients an online database that helps organize their guest lists and events.
And after every envelope is printed the company then sends them out.
“We stuff stamp seal and mail off their invitations for them. What we're here for is to do all the work for them,” Larkin said.
“For the minimal cost that it is it's just alleviates that one more huge stress,” Kathy said.
This service costs about $200 for the first 300 pieces and you drop off your own invitations.
