There is a misconception that we only provide stationary for weddings but we also do a wide range of other social events. Any social event over twenty-five people is in need of invitations, place cards, menu cards and so on.  Today, I want to share with you one of my recent projects. I've been working on developing the Bar-mitzvah invitations you see above since February. The Bar Mitzvah will take place this Saturday!

We did something very unique for this event by developing e-blasts invitation accompaniments. The client opted to send both Save the Date's and Menu Preference Card's via email to their guests. This was a great way to save both time and money. Guests were able to get the Save the Date almost immediately after the planning of the event was underway and by having an electronic Menu Preference Card the client did not have to rush to have their menu tasting by a certain day. 

For this type of event I think it was a great way to make use of email while still making the email accompaniments something that correlated with the rest of the printed invitations. 

As you can see there were several elements that went into the formal invitation. We used natural white linen paper, navy matte finish envelopes, a pewter grey mailing label to complement and navy blue grosgrain ribbon to finish the look. The response card was actually part of the original invitation and guests were asked to fill it out, tear at the perferated edges and return. By having a built in response card we were able to save the client money by printing just one piece verses a separate card. In addition to the invitation, there was a separate brunch invitation that was only given to certain guests that were family of the hosts. This is an additional service we are able to do for you when you select to have us mail your invites for you. 

More pieces to come as I continue to work on this project and develop the escort cards and table numbers.
