    For those who don't know, I make my own invitations. The wording suits my type of show better than the ones available through PC. I have been using the same ones for a couple of years now.

    I was fiddling around trying to get my creative juices going on a project (I've was slow in catching the whole Wordle craze, but I'm making up for it. ;)) That's when I had a brilliant idea--new invitations. I decided to play around with some of my favorite PC words. Here's what I came up with

    [​IMG]

    I think it will be eye-catching.

    That's really cute - I may borrow (aka "steal") this idea and have something printed up from Vista. Thanks for the info.

    They're 1/4-page postcards. The back has a place for the address on the right, with a little square as a stamp reminder. The left side says:

    Join the fun . . .
    You’re invited to a sensational time of food, fun and friends. It’s sure to be a delicious experience. Plus, you’ll learn great tips to help make preparing dinner quick and easy.
    Please respond as soon as possible so I can plan my party. I’m looking forward to seeing you. Have a friend who likes to cook (or eat)? Bring them along!

    Date ______________ Time ______
    Host __________________________
    Phone _________________________
    Location _______________________


    You can preview the catalog online at
    [my website address]
    Can’t make it to the party?
    You can order online, too.
    Just be sure to put my name in as host!

    You are always welcome to "creatively borrow" anything I post on CS. Most of my stuff has been "artfully derived" from something I've seen here, anyway. ;)

    Great idea, beautiful colors. Do you print your own or do you have them printed? If you print your own, do you have trouble with the occasional rain and resulting wet mailboxes ruining the ink?

    Great idea! I spend a lot on invites through PC so I'm thinking maybe this is cheaper if I go through, say Vista Print...?

    I was wondering... I just signed up... Aren't we NOT allowed to use the Pampered Chef name without the little symbol whack a doo. I have no idea what all the rules are. I read over the P&P but it still seems a bit confusing.
    I just made some labels and used the PC logo and I'm still not sure if they are "allowed".

    When using it multiple times, the "symbol whack a doo" (cute!!!) or registered trademark symbol only has to be placed with the name the first time it is used. It does not need to be used throughout the entire document. Or at least that's what I learned when I worked with a Pharmaceutical company - they really like to use those trademark whack a doos!!!

    I print my own. As far as I know there's never been any problem with running ink.

    Sorry, it's in the latest edition of Publisher. You could probably just create a 1/4 page document and copy and paste most of the wording and the image.

    Thanks. I use Publisher for most of my creative documents.

    I have no idea. If I use the logo itself, I always make sure the whack a doo is included. Otherwise, I don't worry about it. I can't imagine that the HO is going to hunt me down over copyright infringement for my few little labels and postcards. If I hear different, I'll let you know.

    I made one small change so that you can just put your stamp with your website on the side near the stamp. I then converted it to pdf file so that everyone can use it. I hope it came out right.

    Never used Vista Print, so I can't help you there.

    Just click on the image or highlight the text and use copy and paste.

    Here a copy in pdf..it only has 2 per page...for some reason I cannot get it to convert to pdf with 4 to a page. However, for those who cannot open publisher, you can open this.

    I really like this and I am searching for a catchy invite for my January hosts. Would you happen to have this in anything other than publisher?
    Thanks
