Another Wedding Invitation by trenchmaker Another Wedding Invitation by trenchmaker
Phew.. I wish I had managed to make some decent pictures in... the last three months but I hope Meike Kenn will be so kind and do some brilliant photos at... actually my own wedding which is... in three weeks. So pretty card pictures will come in September. Hopefully.

If anybody wants to send wishes: Please send some thoughts and prayers to my dad. My parents had a really bad car accident and my dad's in surgery today and I pray he's getting out okay- as okay as it can be after getting your neck broken :(

Regarding the card:
I made a lot of invitations for some wonderful couples but doing your own is probably the hardest thing. Ever. Really. My hubby had no idea what he wanted (except "Make it pretty") and I only knew I wanted THAT format. The final idea and first doodles were ready in May and it took 3 weeks to find a decent print company whichoffered exactly the paper and format I wanted.
So yay for the printer for getting the print-without-space-for-mistakes done perfectly (Laser-Line btw.. the paper is 280 gr Mythos). And compliments to the service team- I can highly recommend them.
The backside states the address- which doesn't really belong here. Sorry.

Regarding commissions, please read:

Basically it says "ask me in January"

And now I will hog my phone and wait for a phone call from the ICU.

Anne :heart:

That's a beautiful card. I hope your dad feels better soon. Just curious do you do commissions for wedding invite cards?

Yes, but frankly it depends on several factors. If you are interested send me an email ( trenchmaker@yahoo.de) with a short description, desired format and when you'd need it. I can check if I can do it, how much it would cost and if I can fit it into my work schedule (since I'm already in my 2014 bookings).

Uh- in zwei Tagen ist es soweit? Da drück ich die Daumen, dass in der Vorbereitung alles toll klappt :D
(und ich möchte natürlich später Bilder sehen, ja, ja, ja? :D)


Ich find die obere Illustration mit deinen zwei Katzen so toll :D
Die Idee ist total süß, und ich möchte nicht wissen, wieviel Nervenzellen die Karten gekostet haben XD

He's in rehab now and will attend the wedding. Phew!
Unfortunately they can't fix his shoulder because the tendon can't be reattached but I guess it will be something he can live with. We had a lot of luck- more than anybody can possibly ask for since he had an heart attack last year (exactly 1 year in 7 days) and a bad bike accident afterwards and.... I hope things calm down now. I don't think I can possibly handle another huge accident in 365 days. =____=

Oh wow, that's a lot for one person in one year! I really hope nothing else have happened with your dad since last.
:fingerscrossed: no more huge accidents will cross your path.

Yay! Nur die besten Wünsche für euch beide und gute Besserung an deinen Vater! :heart: Die Einladung sieht entzückend aus, aber bei der Papierstärke und Qualität war das sicher nicht billig...aber wann soll man sich denn sonst das Beste leisten, als bei der eigenen Hochzeit? ;-)

Ehrlich gesagt ging es sogar, insofern man beachtet, dass man sein Preisverständnis aus dem Discounter über Bord werfen muss. Die Preisangebote schwankten jeweils zwischen 75 und 200 Euro. Da einige Druckereien Mindestabnahmemengen von 100 Stck haben und wir weiß Gott keine 100 brauch(t)en, wars dann auch okay für deutlicher weniger etwas mehr auszugeben. Final lag ich bei ca 71 Euro mit feschem Aktionsrabatt und Selbstabholung- so in dem Dreh hatte ich auch vorkalkuliert.
Dafür muss man bei dem Papier keine Lackierung benutzen, was bei anderen Sorten wie Chromolux fast schon Pflicht ist, insofern es nicht total beschissen aussehen soll.

Beim Preis knausern ist bei einigen Angelegenheiten dann doch wie TK-Pizza kaufen und beim Auspacken ein 5-Gänge-Menü erwarten. ;) Muss ja nicht sein. Überteuert allerdings auch nicht.

If I needed wedding invitations (which I don't yet) this would be the type of style I'd want. So personal and it is actually lovely artwork to keep. Makes keeping an invitation mean more.

Thank you.
I told my mum how many people send get well wishes and she got all misty eyed. My dad will be in reha (rehab sounds like he's on drugs O_o) up from Saturday so we keep our fingers crossed everything works out fine.

You're welcome :) I'm glad she's touched :) I hope everything is fine and he'll be released tomorrow. Rehab does make it sound like it's a very serious condition, but I guess breaking your neck really is serious. I'm glad he's doing relatively okay and I hope it'll only get better from here. It must be very difficult on all of you, so I wish you all the best of luck, hope and love :hug:

Die Stunden habe ich nicht  genau gezählt. On-Off 2 Wochen, wo Zeit war. Teilweise musste ich die Illu beim finalen Layouten in Indesign nochmals korrigeren.... da kommt einiges zusammen.
