Halloween Party Invitations

Here's my Halloween party invitation from 2010. I found the images, labels and fonts online and built it in Photoshop. It was printed double-sided on thick card stock, wrapped in a wrinkled craft paper "envelope", sealed with a vintage poison label and tied "butcher-style" with twine. I'd love to see your invites!

Can't compete with those! Outstanding job. We had over a hundred invites go out for 2010...so me and the misses decided to go the cheap route and email them.
But you just can't beat the detail of a invite like yours...maybe next year!

Hey thanks! I had to go cheap too. I printed them out like cards on my home printer, folded them in half, glued them together and wrapped them in craft paper by hand. I only made about 2 dozen this way and handed them out in person. For the rest of the invites I emailed a link to a picture of the invite online.

I found the skeletons image here.

Do a Google image search for "poison labels" and you'll be amazed!

And I used the free Headline 1, Telegram and Slabserif fonts from this site.

Thanks Jen! Just let me know what you like to drink between now and then and I'll make sure to have plenty of that handy for afterward! ;)
