New menu on Zazzle

I am over the moon about this new offering on Zazzle! This menu is fully customizable between choice of colors for the text and the image itself! Zazzle's flexibility allows the user to select the background color for the image, which instantly transforms this menu to perfectly match the feeling and color scheme of your event! Here is my favorite color combination, also shown on the site.

Try it now by clicking on the link and editing it yourself!

Smitty and Lizzy's Save the Dates

After spotting my Pennsylvania destination wedding Save the Dates on Zazzle, Jason contacted me to see if I could do something similar for his Michigan wedding. I was excited for the challenge and could not be more pleased with the results! Soon to be posted on Zazzle and Etsy for personalization.

Lindsey and Jim's Wedding Program

I finally caved in and got the gorgeous Burgues font that I had been coveting for ages, and was able to use it on Lindsey and James' wedding programs, along with another favorite font, Justus. These will be printing on 8.5 x 5.5 card stock. Thanks so much, Lindsey!

Overpriced wedding monograms and logos

I don't usually take this space to complain, but after seeing a sponsored post on someone else's blog, I felt like I needed to say something.

Today my blog feed popped up a sponsored post on a wedding blog advertising a 10% off a $26 catalog wedding logo. Why would you pay anyone $24.95, $34.99, or good lord, $49.95 for a single monogram?!

Custom Printables has always been committed to offering high-quality, low-cost monograms that offer choice of colors, fonts, and file formats at no additional charge. Our custom monogram pricing only begins at $25. Your wedding costs are high enough already. Don't pay for overpriced design work. There are dozens of artists out there on Etsy, Zazzle, and beyond that offer the same beautiful work at a fraction of the cost.

Sidnaya and Derek's monograms

Sidnaya contacted me through Etsy for two wedding monograms in yellow.

The Ellisha (top) and Simone (bottom) are two of our most popular designs!

Wedding program for Crystal and Douglas

This program was one of the most exciting and interesting ones I have ever made. Crystal and Douglas, a couple that just seems made for each other, has fabulous engagement shots taken not only of them, but of the entire wedding party. Crystal asked if we could incorporate them into the program, and I was so happy to oblige.

Although the pages are laid out here side-by-side, Crystal had each page layered individually into a pamphlet form bound at the top. I couldn't be more happy with the outcome!
