My niece is celebrating her 18th birthday soon. She called me recently to ask my help with the preparation of her invites. What can I say? I immediately requested her to provide me with her photo, the exact details of the debut party and the message she wishes to convey. It was not really difficult to do the copy for her invite having substantial experience in preparing other invites in the past.
When I finished the template, I emailed it to her to ask her comments. Satisfied with the copy, she immediately told me if we could print about a hundred of them. Oh my! That many, I said. Now , I have a problem. I think my printer is out of Phaser 8560 ink . This means I need to buy a couple of them, soon.
You see, the invitation is quite elaborate, size of an 8 1/2 x 11, bearing her photo serving as the over-all background. It bears her message which essentially says that at 18, almost about to finish her college course, she will take her birthday as a liberation from all things juvenile, looking forward to the future with hope and courage to face the challenges of officially being an adult. Great!
The invite card also bears the listing of friends and relatives participating in 18 roses, 18 candles, 18 gifts, 18 wisdom gems and 18 treasures, plus the venue and time details. Woow. That's one load of information.
But that is ok. I am sure that my printer will serve me well as it always did with all my printing needs. After all, my printer and ink supplier is always A-okey.
