Invitations are such an improtant part of the event planning process.  They set the tone for the event! I have been searching for the perfect invitaiton for a certain project I am working on and wanted to share some of my findings! First I found a great local store called The Invitation Spot. Laura (the owner) was amazingly helpful and very knowledgeable, I told her exactly what I needed done and she actually ended up referring me to one of her competitors where she knew I would be able to put together exactly what I was envisioning.  Such great customer service, not many people would do that, just goes to show there are some great locally owned stores out there! Check out her site!  I ended up piecing together my project using a store called Paper Source, the materials were inexpensive until they wanted to charge me $63 per insert to print on (I needed 3 inserts).  So I took the material to Kinko’s and got it all done for $40.09.  It was a lot of extra work, but in the end I saved money and still got the results I wanted! I will post pictures soon to show the end result!

Side note for great customer service and a fabulous location (Ventura County) to order invitations go see Laura at The Invitation Spot!
