As I explained in the Custom Details & Options page on my store site, the reason that I say my invitations are custom is that I can really use almost any paper with any design, and the result will look significantly different and can work for any occasion. That is a difficult concept to explain sometimes, so I thought in this case, a picture really is worth more than just words. I designed the following invitation last fall for a wedding luncheon. This black and cream magnolia patterned paper came from Paper Source (of course), and I had been wanting to use it on an invitation for a long time. I thought it was a great option for a semi-formal wedding luncheon, and my client agreed.
Then when another client saw that invitation this spring, she loved the layout and even the font selections, but she made different paper choices (in shades of bronze and brown) that completely changed the feel of the same basic style of invitation for her art gala.
