Two 5 star reviews on Wedding Wire!

Two previous clients recently celebrated their nuptials and after reviewing Custom Printables' service, awarded us two perfect reviews on Wedding Wire! We couldn't be more thrilled and we thank both women for their business and reviews.

Shanacy said: "Valerie at Custom Printables did a phenomenal job creating our monagram. She took the palm leaf from our invitation and used that along with our names. It was PERFECT! We received many complements. Not only was it perfect, but she was so efficient as well. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!"

Jackie said: "I would recommend Custom Printables to everyone! I ordered Wedding Programs and they were gorgeous, exactly what I asked for and I got tons of compliments, everything down to the color and font was just perfect."

New download at Custom Printables!

Mindy and Vince's escort/place cards inspired me to create this downloadable, fully-editable freebie, available exclusively at Custom Printables!

Choose from Traditional or Modern (or both!) and download the place card template, which you can edit in Adobe Reader. They're laid-out four to a page, so you can cut them in quarters and use your bone folder to create small tents. If you have Adobe Acrobat Professional, you can also change out the fonts and move the text fields around.

Like the look but not the colors? We're now offering these two designs for only $5.00 each in your choice of any two colors and one font -- be sure to specify these when ordering.

Wedding package for Mindy and Vince

Jennifer in Beverly Hills ordered an entire package of wedding items for her brother's marriage later this month. She was an excellent client who had a great sense of style and imagination, and together, we came up with some fabulous pieces.

Mindy and Vince's colors are orange, brown, and light green, and the entire suite is designed around the images found on PROGRAM3. The fonts used here are Lainie Day SH (script) and Justus (serif).

The wedding program, which will be folded in half and made into a fan

Water bottle labels, designed for this template
(who knew you could order water bottle labels online?)

Table cards will be made into tents
(an extra tab was left at the bottom of each number to fold over and join)

These escort cards were designed to fold over into tents. They were created in a PDF form,
so Jennifer can go in and type all of the personalized information she wants!

Thank you, Jennifer, for your input and designer's eye!

Custom wedding program for Abbie

Abbie is a fellow blogger and all-around creative, delightful young woman! I was pleased to work with her on the creative process to design her custom wedding program for her mid-summer nuptials. She had wonderful feedback as we worked through the process. The three inside pages will be printed on Royal Fiber kraft paper (a bit lighter than what you normally see) and the covers will be printed on blue. They'll be bound together at the top. Congratulations to Abbie and J, and thanks for being so great to work with! (All names, dates, and locations have been changed.)

Monogram for Alexis and Jeremy

Alexis requested one of our Hebrew monograms with her wedding colors, purple and gray, using Black Jack, one of my favorite (free!) fonts. I think both versions look classy and modern. Thanks, Alexis!
