    As some of you know, she does wedding stationary. Here is the table numbers she's finishing up for the wedding this weekend. Menus on two sides, table number on the front side. All handmade. ;)

    Its bulging because of the ribbon under the paper. its 2 layered, and the customer wanted it that way. My wife tried to tell her it would do that, but they didn't listen. Oh well, they liked it and the wife is getting her money... thats all that counts. :)

    This order w/ the invitations, table numbers, and a small ceremony 'outline' is about $1100. :)

    She can usually whip one of those table numbers out in under 3 minutes once its printed.

    Well, but it is Art & Photography. They could be tasteful nudes.

    :rofl:

    Thats actually how she got started. She did that as a hobby for a while, and when it came to our wedding and she saw the outrageous prices people were going to charge, she said "I can do this shit myself...".

    Our florist saw her stuff, was so impressed she made my wife get a DBA and started flowing customers her way. Last January was the first month she did it for a paying customer... and in 2007 she did a total of 8 weddings. This year so far, she's already done 9 and she has 2 more she's working on right now. Booked another one tonight. :o

    People usually don't throw elaborate parties like a wedding but once in their life. For that one time, they're willing to pay almost anything to get it as perfect as they can. Its a great business, and if you're good at what you do, there's a limitless amount of money that can be thrown your way.

    My wife also owns a nail salon in the galleria area here in Houston and she offers packages for the bridal party before the wedding to get their pedicure and manicures done as a group. Almost every party she's done weddings for has gone there before the wedding... so, money on the back side too. ;)
