These three amazing little people are the inspiration behind Print It Yourself Invitations. Master 6, Miss 4 and Miss 9 months.
I had been designing on and off for years whilst at school, in various jobs and in my spare time, but the catalyst that started PIY Invitations was when I was looking for an economical, but high quality invitation for my sons 1st birthday party and struggled. All the fantastic ones were really expensive (out of reach for a then single income family of three) and the free and cheap ones were... well cheap and nasty! I felt I could do better myself- so I did! My first attempt at a birthday invitation was the “Pirate Aidan” design (see right) and as a result, a seed was planted!
In April 2010, I launched PIY Invitations on Facebook and haven’t looked back! I absolutely love creating personalised designs for my kids and friends and often find my inspiration from their favourite games, imagination and mischievous activities.
I work from home, in a make shift office around the games, laughter, squeals from miss 9mths and inevitable fighting of my two excitable elder children. Print It Yourself Invitations & Design is wholly and solely a Western Australian owned and run work-at-home-parent (WAHP) business. All products are designed by myself, with the some of the more complex graphics purchased from deposit photo or etsy when I am just too busy to draw it myself. All of our PIY designs are unique to us!
Print It Yourself Invitations & Design offers affordable, but high quality designs that are customised to suit your style, your personality, your event. By printing your invitations yourself, you save money on postage, and steep mark-ups on printing. I am able to keep my custom and pre-design product price so low as I reserve the right to resell a design over again- making changes as and when each customer needs. I want everybody to be able to access gorgeous, personalised invitations without having to break the bank.
I hope that you allow me to design you a special invitation for your next event. Please feel free to share your birthday theme ideas, ask questions and make requests so that I may serve you better!
