One of those fun projects was designing Halloween invites for a party a friend was throwing at a bar. This project gave me the opportunity to draw again, as well as the challenge of seeing if I could make 800 invites on a $100 (£64)printing budget.
It also doesn't hurt being able to say that the bar was supposed to go out of business three weeks after the party, but did so well that night that they were still in business the next year.
On this project, I wanted to print program covers, invites, thank-you cards, RSVP cards, and two small inserts to put with the program on the same print run, all two-over-two with full bleeds (total sheet size was 12" 3 18" [30 3 46 cm]). The printer even allowed me to send the project with no crop marks (which allowed me to design the pieces ¼-inch [6 mm] larger), along with a PDF document showing where the cuts would be made afterwards.
