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!
