Learn more about our ads. Loooongtime readers might remember one of my most memorable weddings to profile, Kimi and Paul's jug band, critter-filled wedding. That wedding was DIYed to the max with hand-made dress embelishments, art projects as centerpieces, not to mention the invitations designed by Kimi herself. That's why I'm not surprised in the LEAST that the next time I should here from this particular Offbeat Bride is when her stationery business, A Printable Press, became one of our sponsors! Damn, I love that! Let's all take a moment to cheer for yet another Offbeat Bride-turned-business lady, about how A Printable Press makes great invite designs affordable (besides the special discount code!), and gush about Kimi's awesome invitation designs… Kimi created A Printable Press as a way to bring high-end design to anyone, no matter what their budget! As Kimi explains, what inspired her to start A Printable Press was not a love of stationery but rather her amazing DIY wedding dress. She thought about how all those who are not professional artists and graphic designers who would also love a little elegance, a little whimsy, "but in a way that would still allow them to save for a down payment on a future home." And so she got pro-active and created A Printable Press. We believe that everyone deserves good design. In this day and age it is more important than ever to be careful with money — but lovely design should always be a part of life as well.

We just got our invitations in the mail from Printable Press the other day, and we're delighted! * We worked with Gen, who was prompt and friendly * Our first online proof was exactly what we had requested, with a little additional polish * Our second online proof was perfect * The invitations (and reply postcards, and thank you notes) arrived exactly as expected (we went with the option of having them print everything for us) * They were patient with us as we had a last-minute panic about what the holiday weekend was doing to our schedule, and flexible enough to let us upgrade shipping methods at the last minute * Everything was shrink-wrapped, which was important as our box got a little wet in transit (everything inside was fine, whew). And most importantly, the final product looks great. We've been getting compliments. I looked through about a zillion different invitations on different sites, but I kept coming back to two designs from Printable Press, and I'm glad we chose them. They don't have a way to preview the invitation with your text before buying, so I took a screen shot of the invitation and edited it (in Paint) to erase the sample text and stick our text in with an approximation of their font. I wouldn't recommend trying this as a final version – aside from that being kind of sketchy, their final version was MUCH prettier than the little mock-up I did. But my mock-up was good enough to convince me that the design worked for us. Reply I like one of the invitations shown above how would I place my order?
