Similar to our international RSVP inserts, I used the PDF proof from the existing stationery to create our thank you cards. (I've gotten a lot of mileage out of those proofs!)
|Nope, not our names!|
To simplify the process (and because I couldn't find the 4-Bar size envelopes that I wanted at Staples, just the ones that fit a sheet of letter paper folded into quarters!), I created another 1/4 sheet designthis time, I remembered to account for the margin printing problems!and then doubled the canvas size in Photoshop to create a folding card template. I then placed two of the designs side by side, printed and cut, then used a bone folder to crease the cards in the middle for a nice, smooth fold.
Sixty pages and 120 thank you cards later, voilà! Finished thank you cards, all ready to be written during our honeymoon! They might not be as cute as the photo cards, but at least they're still personalized, they'll inform people of my new married name, and we'll be able to reuse any extras for other occasions.
How will you thank your guests?
