Vowing To Save Money on Your Wedding?; Staples Makes Ordering Professional Invitations Easy

FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 2006--As thousands of couples prepare to walk down the aisle, one of their biggest sources of pre-matrimonial stress is often the creation of a wedding invitation. Creating personalized, professional invitations to convey the excitement and anticipation of the big day can be frustrating and very time consuming. Wedding invitations and stationery printed by a professional printing company can cost thousands of dollars, but experts at Staples Copy & Print Centers are offering an easy solution for couples to order high quality, elegant wedding invitations without breaking the bank:

    --  Make it easy from the beginning: Start by selecting a wedding
        collection that fits your style. Stop by a local Staples Copy
        & Print Center and ask an associate for wedding invitation
        samples or specific bridal stationery collections.

    --  Select the right paper: For a formal wedding invitation, white
        or ivory is traditionally used with black print. However, a
        touch of color can be just as formal, providing more
        flexibility to reflect your personalities and wedding style.

    --  Print invitations and envelopes: Do not spend time searching
        or hiring an expensive calligrapher to pen the names and
        addresses of all your family and friends. Instead, print names
        and addresses directly on the mailing envelope. Avoid using
        labels, your custom wedding invitations from Staples Copy and
        Print Centers can be professionally printed with your return

    --  Seek out experts to help: From finding the right words for
        your invitation to selecting the best format, flip through
        invitation sample booklets available at Staples Copy & Print
        Centers. Visit a local Staples store for expert advice.

    --  Remember to complete the ensemble: In addition to
        invitations, consider other important items such as save the
        date cards, reception and respond cards and thank you notes.
        Ask any Staples Copy & Print expert for affordable suggestions
        to complement your invitations for a coordinated look without
        spending thousands of dollars.
