DIY Decoder Save-the-Dates

Design Inspiration

How fun are these decoder save-the-dates? I’m a nerd myself so you can imagine my excitement over this idea! They come with red glasses that reveal the message. I can’t hardly wait for their wedding, it’s going to be off the hook if you haven’t noticed yet. Shot by the darlings Kelly and Ryan from Kellan Studios.

From the bride,
“I did all the printing of the cards, envelopes, and stickers myself on a home inkjet and on a large-format printer, and we bought the decoder glasses online for about 20 cents a piece.” She said can custom design them if there’s anyone interested! Just leave a note below and I will give her email address.
