Save the Date Cards – Madison Wisconsin Engagement Photographer

I am getting ever closer to my grand opening of my gallery space in downtown Madison, WI.   In the process, I’ve decided to run a line of custom products.  This is an extremely slow and time consuming process, but it is fun!  I get to create with fonts, textures, and backgrounds.  Digital design is Dare I say? FUN!  I am starting with three Save the Date cards.  I have romance, whimsy, and the ever popular chalkboard design. The colors and wording are customizable and fun to make all your own.  So after your engagement session, come sit with me and pick out your awesome unique one of a kind save the date cards.    Here are few examples that I’ve been working on.  I hope you really like them.

Cheers! – Erin

Here is a Romantic template I sourced from The Shoppe Designs called Chocolate Forest.  This is a great site for photographers for all kinds of goodies!!  Once in a while there are free templates for download, so I always check.  This one is a 5 x 7 flat card design that was FREE!  Thank you Shoppe Designs.    Some of the fonts were no longer available for free use, so I looked for similar fonts at Da Font.  This another great site in which you can get endlessly lost in if you are into digital design.

This goodie above is a whimsical design named Love Birds that I sourced again from The Shoppe Designs.  The was also a free 5 x 7 flat template card.    Again I changed some of the fonts because they were no longer available for free.

And last but not least!  My own creation!  After playing with the free templates for a while in photoshop, I had a light bulb moment.  I can do this!  This card is absolutely unique; a ONE OF A KIND only from Melissa Grace Photography.  Pretty neat! AND  I like being different!   This is my Chalkboard design.  The front is on the left and the back is on the right of the 5 x 7 flat card design.

I found the Free Chalkboard background on the blog One Velvet Morning which then linked me the download at Foolish Fire.

There are some great resources out there to create to my hearts content.  Cheers and come see me at the studio sometime.  Post a comment I’d love to hear from ya!
