One of my latest wedding projects

I've made more than 5,000 custom printed wedding favor bags since last year. Here are some photos from my latest custom wedding order.

These large glassine favor bags will be perfect for a cookie buffet. I worked with the bride to select the perfect gold and ivory scroll paper for the outer tags, the wording and style of the inner tags and the type of ribbon to tie the bags.


The bride sent me wording for this large tent-folded sign, which will be placed at the cookie buffet.


This cute little tent folded sign will encourage guests to pick up flipflops for the dance floor.


These 3x4 tags will be tied to apothecary jars holding different Italian cookies for guests.
