Fill it in, fill it in!

I have never been entirely drawn to fill-in invitations, stationery and thank you notes, mostly because what’s out there tends to look “lazy” (i.e. “I waited until the very last minute to invite your friends to your Bridal Shower!”). I used to think high-quality, printed invitations were the only way to make a classy first impression for an event, but, I have recently seen lots of cute fill-in invitations on the local Paperie shelves that are just as sophisticated as printed invitations. So, we just HAD to add some to the PosePrints site!

Here is one of our new Bridal Shower Fill-in Invitations. I know it looks like we are totally obsessed with polka-dots, and that’s probably because we ARE. We also created some unique Baby Shower Invitations and Children’s Thank You Notes for our Fill-in line.

We are in the process of adding even MORE Fill-ins to the collection, so make sure to keep checking our Packaged Cards section for newbies.

One common-sense tip for creating the most sophisticated fill-in invitations possible for the next Baby Shower or Bridal Shower you are hosting: ask your friend-with-the-best-handwriting to help you fill them out fill them out for you! That’s what friends are for…

New Poses in Packaged Cards

As we gear up for the National Stationery Show 2009 (May 17-20, 2009), we have started adding our “Packaged Cards” to the PosePrints website! Our retail line will be comprised of these stationery sets, and there are SO many more to come. We’d love to hear what you think!

While our retail line of cards will not be as personalized as our original PosePrints cards, we did sneak a few new personalizable full-body poses into the mix. With these cards, you may personalize a few of the features (including hair color, eye color and skin color) by noting your preferences in the “comments” section at check-out. We may add our nifty scrolling mechanism full of features for full-body poses at some point, but we want to see if you like them first!

Here is an example of one of the personalized full-body poses on my amazing friend Brooke’s Baby Shower invitation. It’s so cute and colorful, but still has a sophisticated feel!

What do you think of PosePrints’ full-body caricatures? Are there any other full-bodies you think we should create?
