Say I Do to Charity with Carlson Craft

I’ve written several posts on the fabulous I Do Foundation. Considering my recent predicament in my search for invitations, I figured it was the perfect time to write about the charitable invitations that they have on their site via their partnership with Carlson Craft.

Known for their high-quality products and fast turnaround, Carlson Craft has more than 60 years of experience in printing, publishing, and they offer a broad array of wedding and other printing services. Carlson Craft's online wedding site has hundreds of high quality and reasonably priced invitations available direct from a professional printer!

A lovely example of Carlson's craftsmanship.
If you visit the "I Do Expressions" Carlson Craft online store through the I Do Foundation's site, 10% of your purchases from Carlson Craft will be donated to the charity of your choice at no additional charge to you or your guests. You just have to register at the I Do Foundation to choose the charity of your choice. For more information, visit www.idofoundation.org.

The I Do Expressions site offers countless different options, no matter what your taste or price range. Planning a destination wedding? You can pick from the Seasons and Destinations category, which includes beachy themes like sea shells and coastal maps. Shopping on a budget? Check out the "value with style" section.
You can value style and save with this lime green invitation card for just $159.90 for 100 invites!
In addition to invites, Carlson Craft's charitable online shop also offers save the dates, personalized stationary for newlyweds, menu cards, direction cards, and of course, thank you notes.

This black and white themed thank you card is the perfect way to say thanks!
Not in the market for wedding related goods? They have a whole host of other items, ranging from holiday cards to get well wishes to congratulations.

In addition to partnering to offer charitable invites, Carlson Craft's Naturally Ever After line is both charitable and eco-friendly. The Naturally Ever After invitations are all crafted on quality, recycled papers containing at least 30% post-consumer fibers. The cleverly titled "Reaching Up" invite, featured below, is one of my favorites. Not only is it in one of my wedding colors, but it packs quite a socially conscious punch, since it is both recycled and charitable.

"Reaching Up" and helping out.
With so many options - ranging from elegant to casual - and everything in between, it is hard to imagine not being able to find your ideal invite on the I Do Foundation's site. What are some of your favorites? I'll leave you with a couple more of mine.
