Envelopes, envelopes everywhere…but not a drop to drink.
(I’m being somewhat liberal with my poetry quotations)
This is the kind of crazy, drawn-out story about small issues that arise when you do somewhat bizarre wedding-ish things, such as save-the-date cards.
A really generous Virginia friend who is an AMAZING graphic designer has offered to whip up a save-the-date holiday card for us to send out in a month or so. Thank you!
The “photo shoot” was last week (the glam photographer was my fiance’s old roommate and all we did was run around the neighborhood posing in front of every green shrub we could find). The photos came out well, and it should be really cute.
Well – since the card will be a photo card, I had to find envelopes that would fit a 4×6 photo. Apparently this is an impossible task. The problem is the “4” (not the “6”). Most envelopes are not tall enough! Greeting card envelopes are, but who sells loose greeting card envelopes without the greeting cards?
Office Depot, my savior, happened to have just put out their holiday printing display case. There on the bottom shelf, lying in a manger, I found laser-printer ready “greeting card envelopes” after hitting up 3 other stores in search of a taller envelope! Here they are:
Beautiful, I know.
Considering that I followed this envelope hunt with delivering a mock opening statement in a real-life Federal courthouse, I am ashamed to admit that the envelope hunt was both more difficult and more rewarding.
