Tracy Schabl, owner of DoubleTake Invitations, offers a fresh, unique approach to invitations, not to mention endless stock choices and competitive pricing (in Tracy’s own words, “custom doesn’t have to mean expensive!”) All of these factors come together to make up just a part of what Ontario bride’s love most about Tracy’s work. In this featured expert tip, Tracy shares some of her company’s favourite stationery suites from recent weddings.
Rustic Trends [Image, above] Rustic Invitations were a very popular choice for DoubleTake’s clients this year. The combination of a chalkboard design, textured chocolate “bark” pocketfold, pop of metallic blue and orange and mason jar elements helped to make this invitation suite stand out.
Personalize your message [Image, above: 2tonestudios.ca] With the option to personalize both sides of a reception stable stationery piece, you can share two personal messages with guests. In this example, seen right, the bride and groom display a menu on one side and a thank you note on the other. These were placed on each table throughout the reception, offering a warm welcome to readers.
