These look great! I would never know you did them yourself if you hadn''t said so. Very pretty looking. I think the invitation is really the highlight of the bundle, although we''re all impressed with your mad map skills

I think that should be the focal point.

Dreamgirl - Nope, my friend and I actually rented time at a studio that let us use their presses. My friend did just recently track down and buy a tabletop press. She still needs to fix it up and buy some parts for it, but we may be able to use it to print the programs and menus before the wedding.
Perfect! I''ve always loved letterpresses but they cost so darn much. I never thought of renting time at a studio. I know a calligrapher who owns a letterpress. I''ll keep him in mind for the future!

Thanks for all the nice feedback!

After looking at the order again last night, we've ruled out stamp side up, although it seems split between invite first or smaller pieces first. So I think I ended up just putting them in different orders at random... :) I guess that's what you have to do when you're as indecisive as I am

(For those who commented on my avatar...That would be our cutie patootie, Annie :) Here's a picture my sister mocked up of her along with her doppelganger, a Japanese anime character called Chi that we think looks exactly like our Annie. I couldn't resist :) )

I am really, REALLY late to this thread, but your suite of stationary is simply stunning. I can''t believe it''s DIY. What an inspiration.
