06/15/2004: "Invitations at last!"technorati tags: blah.
I said I was going to be way ahead of the game this time and give myself plenty of time to order invitations so that I'd be able to use that company that Jackie reccommended that I got a sample kit from that did excellent work...but then I found myself out of time and forced to use our local copy shop again. They've done an awful time every time that I've used them but what else can I do? I sent in the job on Monday and they had proofs for me to look at today. Even though I had written out *very* detailed instructions, they hadn't used card stock, they did color printing on *both* sides, and the color didn't look very rich or deep. The printing didn't look like it was very high resolution. I was in a hurry though and not in a mood to argue with the guy, so I corrected the paper and the fact I only wanted color on one side (oh yah, they were going to give me 200 sheets of copies, as opposed to 200 total postcards also)...but I signed off on the less than stellar looking color copies on the front because I just want to get it over with and I think it's all the better they can do.
If anyone wants me to mail them an invitation just send me your address. If you've already sent me your address then you're already on my mailing list so you don't have to send it to me again.
When do you all normally send out your invitations? I usually send them out two weeks ahead of time but I was thinking of cutting it closer this time, to just a week and a half ahead of time. What do you think?
