Postcard Invitations


Aloha Sprinkerinos,

Woah there sailor (?!), when did I become a Mother of an almost two year old? Surely I was only pregnant three and a half seconds ago?

That aside, I'm having a little party afternoon for her and thought it might be nice to send official through the post since I'm oddly quaint that way. 

Postcard Invitations | Sprinkle of Glitter

To save myself the bother of notelets and envelopes, I decided to go with their lazy cousin option- the postcard.

I used a website called photobox (they haven't asked me to write this post and I paid with my own pennies), uploaded an image that I liked (which I previously edited on picmonkey), selected how many I wanted and voila, £6.99 for 10 and 2 days later, my invites where on my doormat.

I'm sharing this with you because a) it excites me, b) it was super easy, fast and affordable and c) because I didn't know about it until I did a little research, so it may well come in handy for you. A little life tip to store away until you need it. 

So far the postcards have been a hit and I shall keep a couple back myself to save as mementos.

What do you think? New age postcards or old school notelets and enevelopes? I have a tonne of crafts planned for her birthday so do keep your eyes peeled for those soon!



Toodlepip!

  19. These are so sweet! Darcy is gorgeous! I've used foto.com just for printing out photos and they're pretty good quality. The delivery was also quite quick but I live in Belgium, I don't know if the service is the same in the UK... Anyway, well done for bringing up such a lovely little lady!

  22. It is a good idea which I've actually used before - it was just some Danish website instead. :-) I think a lot of photo-websites offer this.

  23. Postcards are a great idea! Especially when you're in a pinch for time. I did this with valentines last year and they were great. Should definitely do it more often... These are too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  24. That's a brilliant idea! They're so original and way more personal than a Facebook event. I'd definitely be doing this at some point!

  34. These are the cutest that I've seen in a long time! Perfect for mommies planning their babies parties, and almost I think these would be great for sending out "Save the Date" postcards for weddings (an occasion closer to my own heart as I don't have children yet, haha). I'm really glad you did share this, and I also appreciate you telling us the post wasn't sponsored. I always wonder when bloggers rave about a website if they've been paid or not, and it's great to know you're showing us things that really genuinely interest you!
