Here is the original poster :
Here was the criteria I needed on the poster.
- It needed to look like a movie poster.
- It had to keep the actual feel of the original poster.
- We needed to write our names in there somewhere
- It had to be bilingual
My name is Kelly and I'm the lucky and not to mention happy bride-to-be. I love anything weddings and planning my wedding has become my ultimate favorite thing. I live for weddings and I am sure that after it will be over I will be extremely sad. Until then... Welcome to my wedding blog.
"Canada Post announced the introduction of a new non-denominated stamp that will retain its value forever. The PERMANENT stamp will eliminate the need to purchase 1¢ stamps after a rate increase, doing away with the need for Canadians to worry about 'using up' postage stamps before a rate increase takes effect." source of text and imagesI was really excited about this news, especially being someone who rarely uses stamps. I went to the post office and purchased 2 rolls of 100 adhesive permanent stamps. The only disadvantage of these stamps I would say is the variety, but a pretty flower like the one shown is nice and wedding invitation worthy.
"even if I approved the proofs on Thursday, they would still be ready on Friday."Thursday is here, its almost noon and no call in sight, again I called the lady
"I apologize, the proofs won't be ready in time, our printer broke" Are you for real? No way!!!! But what could I do at this point... nothing.Its now Friday and I don't have my invitations like they said I would. So now I'm hoping they fixed what ever issue they had with their printer. I called again, the lady knew it was me before I even said a word. That's not a good sign. She told me
"I'm so sorry, we have the technician in sight, but I won't be able to show you the proofs today. But Monday for sure! Is noon okay?"Do I have a choice? Not really, so being the nice girl that I am I say "Sure, what other choice do I have?" I was angry all weekend long because I couldn't send out my invitations. Especially when the situation is extremely frustrating. On a good note, I took the oppurtunity to address all of the envelopes (at least that went well), so now I just have to put the invite in the envelopes and voila... send to the post office.
