Pencil Us In Save the Date for Wedding

When looking for save the dates, I really wanted a unique option other than a photo magnet, so I was excited when I saw this featured in an issue of the knot. I loved the general concept but wanted something that was a bit cleaner in aesthetic. We created a template in Photoshop and had them printed at a local letterpress printer. I originally wanted to attach each pencil with glue dots (like in credit card mail offers) so everyone could easily remove the pencil, but because they weren’t tacky enough I ended up using my trusty hot glue gun.

After sharpening about 70 pencils (by hand!) and assembling each save the date, I attached these modern off-centered labels to thick envelopes so the pencil wouldn’t break through. I love the way they came out and I’m so excited that the wedding planning is starting to move along! It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been engaged for ten months, and we have only six until the wedding!
