“Map” the Date

Today, we shipped out Kate and Brady’s awesome save the dates! This is a new design that was based on the Kate’s idea of using a map of the area where they are getting married on the save the date. The actual card is a white pearl square with their names, save the date and date on the front — accommodations information are provided on the back. The fun part is the vellum band that wraps around the save the date. In order to create the map, I got a crash course in the roads in and around Millbrook, NY, using Kate’s guidance, along with google! In addition to the roads, I included some of the key venues for the wedding weekend. And, when the vellum band goes around the card, SAVE THE DATE shows through the map…too cute! Enjoy!

  1. What you published made a lot of sense. But, consider
    this, what if you were to create a killer title? I am not saying your content isn’t solid, however suppose you
    added a title that makes people desire more? I mean “Map” the Date
    | Allison Barnhill Designs is a little plain.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create
    news headlines to grab viewers to open the links. You
    might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.

  2. An impressive share! I have just forwarded this onto a coworker who was conducting a little homework on this.
    And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I found it for him…

    lol. So let me reword this…. Thanks for the
    meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending some time to
    talk about this issue here on your site.

  3. Thanks for loving the “Map” the Date post! Actually, I use Illustrator for my designs, but I think you could use Word or Publisher and using lines and adjusting the “edit points” to make the lines look like roads! :) Or, let me know and we can do it for you. Take Care!

  4. I love this idea! And your map is great! What program did you use to creat it? I got married last year and hand drew a map for our invitations. Now I’m working on a few invitations for friends and I think they might want a more polished look! I love your designs keep up the great work!

  5. How creative of the Bride! I love it!! I am getting married next year and I am definitely stealing this idea.
