Elgin can also incorporate any photographs, logos or other graphic elements the customer wants into the design. If the customer wants a certain look or feel to the invite, Elgin can help make that happen as well. “We had one person who wanted a zebra-stripe effect with pink and black, so we created their invitation using that motif,” said Elgin. “Another wanted an Old West theme, so we created something that looked like a ‘Wanted’ poster. Others have chosen a formal look with elegant script on a damask-texture background or lace. One wanted two little pig caricatures, one dressed in a tux and the other with a wedding veil, so we created those. Of course, flowers of all types and trees are always popular.” Brides and corporate planners from the area come to Valley Printing, but so do customers from across the country, as well as Canada, Ireland and Scotland. “We even did the map with driving directions for the wedding in Ireland,” recalls Elgin. Valley Printing’s graphic designers work closely with each customer to create the right invitation. Usually once an order is placed, it takes two to three business days to get the invitation designed and ready for the customer to proof. Another advantage is that there is no minimum or maximum order, so the customer can choose exactly how many invitations they need. Eclectic, fun, formal or simple, the invitations created at Valley Printing are as varied as the events, but the customers’ reaction is always the same: “They are beautiful!” “Thank you for all the time you spent so that it turned out just right!” “They are amazing!” “We can’t wait for our family and friends to receive them!” For more information on the invitations, please stop by or visit their website: Valley Printing 3045 Main Avenue Fargo, ND 58103 701-237-6408 www.sealandsend.net or valleyprinting@ideaone.net
