Why are Custom Wedding Invitations so Expensive?

Why are Custom Wedding Invitations so Expensive?

Weddings cause sticker shock, I totally get it. And the thing that makes weddings so tricky is the fact that many wedding vendors charge MORE for their items if they are for a wedding, as opposed to some other event people might be hosting. I am NOT a vendor that does that. I believe that my prices should be even across the board, regardless of the type of people or event I'm creating them for. But, with that said, my prices are still high and a lot of people will ask me, "Why are your wedding invitations so expensive?"

What to Expect When Mailing Your Wedding Invitations Through USPS

What to Expect When Mailing Your Wedding Invitations Through USPS

This blog post is meant to serve as a quick guide for USPS related policies surrounding wedding invitations and save the dates, or really any piece of mail for that matter.
