You can afford better than this – Staples wedding invitations

It’s our general policy here at Papillon Press to not poke fun at other wedding invitation styles (to each his own, really), but we have to draw the line somewhere, and when we came across this Staples brochure we simply couldn’t help ourselves. We highly doubt we’ll be hurting Staples’ feelings by posting this. They are more likely sitting on their mountains of cash laughing at us!

We lack the words for how cheesy this is. It's bad enough the invitation features ultra-clichéd bridal roses, but they've photographed it and added a "softening" filter to the photo!
Talk about arbitrary placement of bad flowers! This border doesn't even make any sense.
Save the worse for last! Nothing says "we have no idea what we're doing" like a photo of the couple on the actual invitation. We're going to ahead and say it: it's in very bad taste to put a photo of yourselves on any wedding stationery. It pretty much will guarantee your invitation a place in your guests' recycling bin. Please, for the love of god, don't do this!

There is no excuse for ordering wedding invitations that look this bad. If you’re going to go cheap, at least go with a boxed set of Anna Griffin or Martha Stewart at Michael’s!

    The worst part is that Staples must’ve had enough requests to provide this service. “Your image here”…terrible.

    I totally saw these the other day! They are absolutely terrible and I don’t think modifying these in any way can make them even look good.
