Pirate and Princess Wedding Invitations by greyorm Pirate and Princess Wedding Invitations by greyorm
I spent a chunk of the spring and summer designing these wedding invitations. Kept meaning to upload images of this, so I took some pictures tonight. It's a pirate map that folds out accordion-style, complete with instructions and old sea chart map graphics -- there's a pirate ship, mermaids, palm trees, and sea serpents, among other stuff -- complete with aged envelope.

EDIT: Wow! Thanks for all the favorites, everyone!

any chance you would be happy to share or sell a editable version of your fantastic design? very good job indeed! I've tried to collect enough graphics to make my own but its quiet expensive... cheers

The biggest issue with that would be not having an easily editable (or distributable) file of it right now. I'd have to rebuild it from scratch to make it useful for anyone else to use, let alone editable (various layers were merged, some text was rasterized, etc.). It's a possibility for the future, but it wouldn't happen until I've finished with other projects I'm in the midst of.

I'm in love with these!! I don't suppose you have instructions for this do you?  My daughter is having a pirate themed wedding in May this year!

I don't really. There was a lot of trial-and-error with the folding, even after getting the printed copies. But this might help some: the whole was 28" long, by 8.5" wide. The right-hand center fold was at around 12-1/8th and the left-hand at around 16", from there outwards each fold-point was about 1-7/8" away from the last (but it really varied...we found exact measurements didn't work, just trying to stick close to where the line was supposed to be and keeping the two sides of the outermost central fold matched). There was some excess on both the outside edges that we folded back once the rest of the folding was finished.

I hope that helps! And congratulations to your daughter and (soon to be) son-in-law!

Now all you need is the red wax seal and you are good to go! I would totally come to the wedding if I got this invitation! C: Beautiful job.

Thank you for the kind words! We tried to use wax seals as well, but nothing held up under stress -- everything ended up being too fragile. There was a hot glue method we never tried that might have worked.

That really is too bad about the wax seal...A nice alternative (this is just a thought, you can totally ignore) would have been pressed nickel/penny/metal disk made to look like a wax seal and then spray painted red to give it that authentic look. But that seems ridiculous. I love your invitation the way it is now. C:
