Thank you very much!

Once I had registering on my mind, I also started thinking about thank you notes. Since we haven't settled on an invitation design yet, I didn't have to much to go on but knew I wanted the thank you notes to reflect the Chicago theme of the wedding.

The inspiration for the thank you notes was this vintage Chicago postcard:

I did a little Photoshopping and made them into this (excuse the poor photo quality...this is a new camera and clearly I need to read the manual):

They're printed on a thick linen paper, and overall I think turned out pretty well for about $1 per card from Vista Print. The one downer, which I didn't know about until I got the cards back, that it was printed on the back side:

I may cover that up with a monogram sticker. I also need to line the plain white envelopes, and think this may be the perfect opportunity to use up random Chicago maps I've amassed over the years.


  1. awesome idea! It looks great! From a bride who got married five months ago and is just finishing all her thank you notes, you won't care a smidge about that on the back probably by the time you're sending them. :) Also, lining the envelopes sounds really cool but you might also consider just doing the ones to people who will actually notice and appreciate. :) Just a thought. I'm excited to look more at your blog. Kelly

  5. I love it! What a creative spin on the original. It would put a smile on my face to get that in the mail. Great job.
