Printing Your Wedding Program

Use Canva as a graphic design resource to have some fun with graphics and it's free to set up an account.  Add your own photos and send PDF file to a local printer - I like to use Copyfast Printing in Scottsdale Airpark 480-860-9449.  They are very particular about the quality of images and let you know if it is of high quality or not. 

Or use Vistaprint - allow for 3 weeks to receive product so you are not waiting until the last minute. 

Please before you send to printer, let Amy review it - send her a PDF copy to azweddingsbyamy@gmail.com

 

What the Program can have in it: (not mandatory - see sample images below)

  • Officiant - Amy Stephens
  • Names of family members, Names of Bridal Party
  • Questions of the bride & groom as conversation starters for the guests who don't know each other. (if printing on both sides)
  • Dual purpose for Wedding Ceremony and Dinner (print on both sides)
  • Address of the couple for gifts not received the night of
  • Thank you to the guests for coming
  • Rememberance of those not with the family anymore
  • Make sure font is large enough to read for all ages.  (10 point for most, 14 if older attendance)
