Hot Off the Press: Wedding Design

Spring is in the air, which means wedding-related businesses are all aflutter about their busiest time of the year. It’s no secret that weddings are big business, which means brides and grooms and their families often end up shelling out thousands of dollars for the big day. However, more and more I’ve noticed a trend toward do-it-yourself weddings – participants working together to create a more personalized event. Not only does a DIY wedding mean it’s more unique, but it often means your day is also less expensive.

PsPrint customers are a smart and savvy bunch. Below is just a sample of the wedding designs I’ve seen come through our printing plants in the past couple of weeks. Some couples enlisted their graphic designer friends, and others created the images themselves. They designed their own save-the-date magnets, postcards and stickers as well as invitations in the form of postcards, greeting cards and, of course, invitations. Thank-you cards and even humorous, customized directions round out this collection.

I admit to getting a little choked up seeing these designs that reflect each couple’s personality. For example, that save-the-date magnet that looks like an amplifier? It’s for a couple of musicians who met when their bands were booked for a show together. Could you really buy a generic, stock design after being inspired by these?

“Hot Off the Press” will be back to its usual format next week, but if you missed last week’s, click here. And if you’d like your recent printing project to be included in a future post, please let us know in the Comments below!
