A Few Tips for DIY Stationery A Few Tips for DIY Stationery

A Few Tips for DIY Stationery

Early on in the wedding-planning process, I decided that I wanted to design our stationery myself. We didn?t want anything complicated: a 4″ x 6″ invitation with square corners would be fine by us.

Some of our design inspiration. Note that this photo is almost six years old and designs like this are still going strong! / Image and photo by Ruffled Blog
I figured this was a DIY project that I could tackle as I have some professional design experience. I?m happy to report that this project was a success and not ?DI-whyyyy am I doing this to myself.?
Are you thinking of designing your own invitations from scratch" Here are my tips.

Be realistic.
Take a moment to think about your comfort level when it comes to design and the kind of invitations you want. Will you actually enjoy designing your own invitations" Do you ultimately want something complicated (like laser-cut designs)" When in doubt, save yourself the stress and hire a pro.
Patience is key.
It might take more time than you expect to get your stationery right. I went through several iterations of our save the dates and invitations before Mr. Horseshoe and I were happy. Once I had the design finalized, I still spent hours trying to perfect little things like spacing, font sizing, etc. Budget at least five to six hours of design time per piece of stationery, and split your time over a few days. I found it super helpful to take a break and come back to my design with ?fresh eyes? at a later time.
Free stuff is your friend.
There are tons of free fonts and graphics out there. My two favourite resources are Font Squirrel for fonts and Freepik for photos and vector art. I like using vector graphics as you can resize them as needed without losing image quality—loss of quality can sometimes happen if you are using low-resolution photos. An important note: Make sure you read user agreements and provide credit for any free fonts/images you use. You don?t have to put a credit on your invite, but it?s good to stick those credits up on your wedding website.
Find balance.
I recommend using only a couple of fonts and colors and try to balance them out. For example, use a script font for header text and then a sans serif font for your body. Here?s a fantastic guide on pairing fonts.
Paper can make all the difference.
Our invitations looked kinda ?meh? on matte card stock, but I absolutely fell in love with them when I saw them on felt card stock. It unfortunately doesn?t photograph too well using my blogging camera (AKA my iPhone), but it looks awesome in person!
And now, our invitation reveal! I must admit that the text spacing isn?t perfect since I rather quickly Horseshoe-ified them.

And the reply card that directed guests to our website for online RSVPing / Source: personal
Are you going to design your own invitations/stationery" If you did, do you have any tips to share"
