Engagement invitations

Latest job.
Am really excited and pleased with the way they turned out!
A variation of the square doily save the date cards.
Printed 2 colour c6 size.
Custom text from polymer plates.
Printed on crane's lettra.
Envelopes plain white with doily pressed in blue into the corner.

The doily pattern was printed across the long edge of a5 and the cut in half to make c6, the text was then printed onto the individual c6 cards so 3 passes in total.

Things I learned...
  1. Where the sweet spot is on my Pearl press.
  2. Ink has an amazing colour variation depending on paper texture and colour - the blue of the small doily printed onto the envelope looks completely different to me - although husband did not think it was that different, it frustrated me slightly.
  3. Printing text straight is difficult. I ended up re-cutting around 1/4 of the job to straighten the text up (ie cut around whole card so text was straight on page) this reduced the size of the invite only slightly and is much more effective than printing heaps more in an attempt to get them straight.
