hi I'm making my invites at the moment and I got the stickers from wedding crafted. They are fine to put on... A bit slow, but with a bit of patience it's grand. But if time isn't on your side you can buy the cards with the wording already printed on for you. Theses cards cost a little bit extra. Hth. If you need any other help let me know. :wv

Hiya betsy... it depends on what type effect your looking for with your invitations... Peel offs come in various wording /colours and fonts and can look lovely if you do not have a lot of detail on your card... sometimes they just get lost if they are not prominent against the card colour... Stamps - again different wording/fonts but unless you have a very steady hand and a few spare cards i would advise against these... Banners - these are pre printed with the wording and you have two options with attatching them to your inviations... either flat against the surface or raised with foam pads... these can look lovely... all of the above can look great and it really comes down to personal choice ... maybe purchase a small amount of each and do 1 card up with your ideas... see which one your prefer... also if you have not already bought your paper for your card there are many multi packs of invitations that have the words already embossed/printed on to them but that you could still decorate your own way - it with crystals/gems/feathers/ribbon ect ect... hth good luck with your invitations P [img:11h3u15l]http://www.weddingcrafter.co.uk/techniques/peeloff2.jpg[/img:11h3u15l] example of peel off [img:11h3u15l]http://www.twiddleys.co.uk/mm5/graphics/products/C4U318-2.jpg[/img:11h3u15l] example of banner type [img:11h3u15l]http://www.syntego.co.uk/photo_orig/BN2701Ft.jpg[/img:11h3u15l] example of preprinted multipack.. just ribbon added [img:11h3u15l]http://www.syntego.co.uk/photo_orig/BN2571t.jpg[/img:11h3u15l] example of preprinted - no embellishment for your own decoration [img:11h3u15l]http://www.syntego.co.uk/photo_orig/BN2803t.jpg[/img:11h3u15l] example of syntefold with peel off decoration - love this one ;-)
