Best of Fold of the Week: Event Invitations
This week, I’ve got the best of event invitations, and this is a category that had so many great candidates, it was really hard to decide. I’ve narrowed it down to 6 outstanding ideas that go from simple to complex:
- Event invitations are usually designed outside the lines of standard marketing and branding and can feature some really fun themes.
- We’ll see a range of solutions, finishes, papers, and strategies that will make you want to get even more creative with your next project.
And that's Episode 3 - I hope you enjoyed it! If you celebrate, I wish you a lovely and restful holiday, and I'll see you in two weeks for episode #4! Thanks for watching — I appreciate you.
