TinyPrints Deal of the Day

I can't believe it but summer is right around the corner and like many of you, most of my weekends are already planned with birthday parties, weddings and other fabulous summer events.  Invitations are a great way to set the tone of your party!  Finding the right one at the right price can be a daunting task, especially since there are so many out there and almost everyone is having some kind of sale.

For those of you who are in the process of planning your summer get-togethers, if you are thinking of sending out actual paper invitations, you might not want to miss out on TinyPrints' Deal of the Day.

TinyPrints is a one of the most popular online invitation and stationery stores.  Right now they are offering 25% off on the following Invitations - Summer Parties, Engagement Parties and Wedding Rehearsals!

I have used them in the past for holiday greetings and announcements.  They are good quality and I have found them easy to work with.

Here are some quick tips to keep in mind when picking and ordering your invitations:

1.  When you pick your invitation you should consider the color, style and theme of your party.  Your invitations set the theme and tone of your party.   If you are having an adults only 4th of July Party and your colors are red, white and blue your invitation should reflect that.

2.  Make sure your invitation gives all the relevant information - the who, what, where, why and an RSVP date.  These invitations have the ability to be customized.  Take a minute to sit down and think of creative ways to share your information on the invitation, but be sure to include all the relavant details.  Note:  if you don't want to get phone calls or random emails to your personal for RSVPs, TinyPrints is now offering select invitations with an option to have a FREE RSVP manager website.  You still get to send your paper invitation, but the guests go to the website to reply. 

3.  Give yourself at least two weeks time to place your order, have them printed and shipped to you.  For summer fun parties 3-4 weeks is sufficient time to give your guests to RSVP.  However, if you are having a Rehearsal Dinner or Summer Engagement Party, you will want to give your guests 6 weeks.  So if you're thinking about having that Engagement Party in the beginning of August, now is a great time to be ordering your invitations.

4.  Before you order, go through the list of invited guests and make sure you have everyone's current address.  Take a final count and then make sure your order 10-15% over what you actually need.  You always want to make sure you have a couple extra for the "just in case" or "opps I forgot...".   The nice thing about TinyPrints is that all you need is a minimum of 10 and then you can order in additional increments of 5.

5.  Get a Proof.  Take the time to look at the invitation one more time before you send them to final print.  No one is perfect and we all make mistakes.  Getting a proof gives you (and someone else) the opportunity to look at it one more time and catch that mistake or missing information.

So have fun planning your summer parties and don't forget your invitations!
