You didn't think that I would throw a huge birthday bash and forget the oh, so important invitations did you? What's a party if noone is invited? I was so pleased that Sugarhouse Ink wanted in on the PPM Birthday Bash. Simply because Sugarhouse Ink has some of classiest invites around. Sugarhouse Ink is also celebrating a birthday of their very own! They have now been in business for one full year and is celebrating first birthday. Happy Birthday Sugarhouse Ink!
Not only does Sugarhouse Ink create gorgeous birthday invitations, but just about anything that you can think of when you are in need of spreading the word about one of life's most important occassions. Birth announcements, holiday greetings, wedding invitations, and graduation announcements is just a sampling of what Sugarhouse Ink can do for you. Sugarhouse Ink uses only the highest of quality papers and printing techiniques to create the professionally designed and stylish cards that their customers have come to love and enjoy.
The Sugarhouse Ink gallery showcases a huge, and I mean huge, selection of designs for literally almost every occassion that you can think of. It is so easy to navigate the site and scroll through all the different designs. I found a few holiday card images that caught my eye. I love the photo card option as opposed to the traditional card for sending out at Christmas. I am definitely going to do that this year. I must admit, I haven't sent out Christmas cards in a few years. I just don't have the time to hand write out every stinking card. The photo card is so perfect because it is cute, thoughtful and creative. Not to mention I won't get writer's cramp! In addition to the holiday cards there are also Autumn and Halloween cards too! Within each category there are tons of card options within. Way too many for me to count!
The picture above is a sampling of announcements created by Sugarhouse Ink that they were kind enough to send to me for a review. I found that all of the samples to be stylish, modern and classic. The quality of each sample was awesome. It was clear to see that only the best ink and paper was used to create each one. The photo cards are available in a glossy or matte finish. I personally prefer the look and feel of matte. I've ordered other photo cards that look great but they felt home-made, thin and flimsy. This was not the case with any of the samples from Sugarhouse Ink. You can see the pride and time that is put into each and every design. Simple. Classic. Beautiful. If you are interested in seeing a few of the photo card samples for yourself you can order them for only $3.50, which covers the cost of the samples and the shipping.
In addition to photo cards, Sugarhouse Ink also creates traditional and classic Wedding Invitation Sets. The Wedding Invites and Sets are available on 100 lb. card stock and come with matching envelopes. Depending upon which type of Wedding Invite you choose there is a minimum order of 100-150 invites. Matching response cards and other inserts are also available for as little as .25 cents each. I also received some of these in the sample pack and I think that they are a very well put together set. I loved the design and the fonts. I thought it was elegant and modern, yet simple. Below is a picture of the same design sample that I received taken from the site.
Sugarhouse Ink understands that the customer is the most important part of the creative process. Not only do they offer a gallery of options for you to choose from but if you decide that you would like to change a color or a font they are more than happy to oblige! All designs can be proofed by the customer an amazing FOUR times before the order is processed. If for any reason you can't find a design that suits your needs Sugarhouse Ink will help you to create a custom design for only $15. All photo card orders will ship no more than five days after proof approval and payment. Orders are shipped via USPS Priority Mail and typically arrive 2-3 days after they are shipped. The samples that I received were carefully packaged and arrived safe and sound, covered in sealed plastic, and tied neatly with a ribbon. The presentation is part of the whole package in my opinion and speaks volumes about what a company does behind the scenes too.
I also really liked the idea of the keepsake enlargement of the photo cards. This option is available for those that want to remember their photo cards in a big way. Having them blown up to a poster size is such a great keepsake. I think that this would be so great for the birth announcements especially. I have kept pictures of my kids birth announcements up in the house and I definitely would have liked to have them blown up, matted and framed if it was possible. What a great addition to a nursery that would be! Prices vary depending upon the size of the poster that you would like. They are available from an 8x8 up to a 12x18 size, priced from $7.99 - $12.99.
In addition to the main Sugarhouse Ink site they also have an Etsy shop where Sugarhouse Ink offers is the digital images of their announcements and photo cards. With this option you will pay per design. The awesome part is that you can flip through the images designs offered and then have the image created just for you. Once your order is complete you will send over the picture and the text that you would like used and Sugarhouse Ink will create the High Res Image for you. Then you can print out the images on your own photo paper. Also with this option you will save money because there is nothing to ship! Currently there are 97 different designs to choose from, depending upon the occassion, of course. I really encourage you to take a look because the style and design is modern, hip and fun. Many of the same images that can be ordered from SugarhouseInk.com can be found in the Etsy Shop. I found a ton of images that I loved when I was flipping through them.
Whether its photo cards, or wedding invites Sugarhouse Ink has you covered. They have such a flair for creating the perfect designs that you simply must check them out. I know that I will!
