The WeddingInviteLove lookbook is here! Over 300 WeddingInviteLove vendors are listed by location, along with several awesome guest articles that have appeared on the blog. All vendors get both an image listing with online linking to their WeddingInviteLove profile and as well as directory is in the back linking directly to their websites. 72 pages, 300+ images, and 1000+ links of beautiful wedding invitation goodness!

View and download online for free from Issuu, or get a high-quality print version from MagCloud for $20. Send to any friends and family looking for invitation inspiration or need wedding invitations — or pass along just to promote the beautiful designs by the amazing WeddingInviteLove vendors.

I’m so excited that this has finally launched — I love running an online directory, but it was definitely time to start expanding offline. The next version will be printed in Spring 2012, and I already have a slew of things to improve on — that said, would love any suggestions, requests, anything, in the comments!

Finally I get to announce a new project I’ve been working on! Having an online directory of wedding invitation vendors is great, but I want to take it one step further.

Bi-yearly, WeddingInviteLove will release a PDF lookbook of all WeddingInviteLove-listed vendors! Vendors will be categorized by location as well as special listing areas for custom illustrators and hand calligraphers. All listed vendors will have an image slot much like the search listings on WeddingInviteLove, and upgraded vendors will get jumbo half-page listings.

If you have a full-size single image on WeddingInviteLove, then you’re already good and you don’t have to do anything. Upgraded accounts will be contacted for print-quality images (since their listings will be so much larger), and if your portfolio image is a collage, you’ll be contacted to supply an alternate image for the lookbook.

I’ll be posting preliminary screenshots soon. The first lookbook will be released online for free this fall, and a small number of printed versions will be provided to local Bay Area wedding boutiques as well as for sale online.

If you’re a designer and not listed on WeddingInviteLove, now is the perfect time to do so (not to mention we’re running a prize this month for all new designers). Sign up soon to be included in the first lookbook!

We’re also looking for a few advertisers for quarter-page, half-page, and full-page advertising. Contract Tracy for rates and guidelines.

I love providing a resource for finding wedding invitation vendors and I’m so excited about providing another way for couples to peruse and find their perfect designers, printers, and calligraphers!
