Blog giveaway 2013: Alan’s Invitations

// Author: Julie // 17 Comments


This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered!

We’re back with giveaway number 2… Today we’ve got something familiar to the Birmingham area (although, the actual giveaway can be shipped anywhere – so anyone can enter!). I’m happy to feature Alan’s Invitations here today!

Alan’s Invitations will celebrate their 20th anniversary this spring. As Alabama’s largest pure invitation store, they help brides throughout the state and across the nation. They represent many fine lines of invitations including William Arthur, Crane’s, Carlson Craft, Checkerboard and many others. Their full list of lines here. Classic engraving with hand drawn calligraphy is a specialty of Alan’s and the many new and exciting letterpressed invitations. Alan’s store is relaxed and friendly. I know how stressful the invitation process can be and the staff at Alan’s makes it fun!

So, in honor of our recent Birmingham news (shout out to Courtney!), Alan’s is offering a set of 50 classic embossed notes (white or ecru), with embossed return addresses on the envelopes, shipped to the winner. But, I highly recommend you stop by the store if you have a chance. These cards make the perfect thank you notes for the bride, or a nice hostess gift or just a great addition to your stationery suite.

    Did #1, and #2, those are extremely classy. It does not get any better than monogrammed notecards!

    I am a FB fan of both Invision Events and Alan’s. I adore these embossed notecards!

    When you are a newly wed, you want everything to have your new monogram on it. Especially when you share your last name with your best friend! These notecards are timeless and so very elegant. If you are going to share kind words, it is always better on a beautiful piece of stationary.

    I have FB liked both Invision Events and Alan’s Invitations. The notecards are so classy, and who doesn’t love an elegant monogram?! I’m getting married in August, and these notecards would be amazing “Thank You’s”!

    Did one and two! I love embossing because it definitely makes the difference to people! I always stop and feel the embossing on any cards I get that have it on them! :)

    I liked them both… I LOVE these because I have them and they are my favorite. Only problem is they are in my maiden name initials, would love an update :)

    I did #1 and #2. What I like about the cards is that not only do they have the monogram on the front, but they also have the return address on the envelope which not only saves time but looks chic and classy.
