    NEED ANSWERS RIGHT AWAY!!!!!!!

    Help!

    I have two couples that want to do their PC registry March 1! I was looking at the paperwork supply list and wanted to get a head start on things, and I wanted to order the 'We're Registered' cards. Reason is, one couple is getting married April 2, and wants to have them in their wedding invites that they are sending out this week, and the other couple is getting married in May. I'm mainly worried about the 'April couple', because of the lack of time before the wedding. However, the paperwork supply list doesn't say we can order those cards! I know that when they register that they receive 30 cards free, but they are inviting 200 guests, so 30 won't go very far!! I don't want this couple to get frustrated and not register with PC, so what do I do??? I've asked my director and she's looking into it, but I really need answers fast. I need to order these today if possible! I'm really concerned!!!

    Any suggestions, or information on this matter? I know 30 registry cards won't be enough for most brides, since the average that people invite is over 100! What are we supposed to do?

    Thanks!

    Bridal registry cards

    You could only get the cards through Merrill

  3. You could always buy some blank business cards and make your own?? That way you could make them any way you want and as many as you need.

    Oh, I see. I called PC and they told me the same thing, and how to find them on Merrill. Yikes $46 for 200 we're registered cards!? Um...no. I think I"ll just make my own. Geesh, that is pretty stupid idea if I do say so myself....these should be made available to the couple, and not something that A: is so expensive, and B: that we have to purchase from another company! :mad:

    Grr.....

    Thanks for the help.

    I'm scanning the samples they sent us in the new supplies and printing those out instead. :D

    cheaper? better?

    Can you print them for cheaper than you can buy them? I don't think $7.95 for 200 cards is bad at all. By the time you pay for your color ink and the cards...and the time you invest in printing the cards...you would think it would be cheaper and more time-saving to buy them.

    I personally bought them and they are great! I already have 8 bridal shows set for April and May and I already have 16 brides ready for the March 1st launch!

    I'm just good.... ha ha

    Becky,

    Just teasing in the title...but I am sure you knew that! :D I did a bridal fair here, cost me $200 for 6 hours...but as you can see by the results it was well worth it! I am still working on calling more brides as well! This is the hard part for me! I had over 50 brides register for my prize drawing of a basket along with many bridesmaids and friends of the bride! I thought this was great considering I do live in Wyoming!

    Smiles,

  13. Good job with bookings in WY!

    I agree with you...everything is harder in Wyoming! I live in Utah,and my husband works in Pinedale, WY. Everytime I go up there I remember why I didn't move there lol. :D
