Checkerboard’s fine collection of wedding invitations has long been popular with style-savvy couples, but for many budget-conscious brides and grooms the company’s paper goods have been just beyond their reach. Until now. Last week, Checkerboard unveiled Fusion Invitations, a more moderately priced line of wedding invites that promises to be the “Future of Inviting.”

The Fusion collection features 20 affordable, customizable letterpress, thermography, and digital invitation suites, as well as matching accessories and keepsakes such as guest books, personalized ring pillows, dance floor decals, wall art, throw pillows, and more.

And that’s not all: Fusion Invitations may be the perfect marriage between traditional correspondence and online innovation. The collection offers the class and sophistication of paper invitations, but also lets tech-savvy couples manage nearly everything else online–from addressing envelopes to tracking sent invites to managing RSVPs.

Locally, Fusion Invitations will be available at The Write Image in Salt Lake City. The collection will be arriving in the next couple of weeks. Store owner Miriam Footer and manager Lauren Brady had the following to say about the new collection:
“Fusion Invitations are where tradition meets technology–couples can send guests a tangible and beautiful custom invitation that won’t break the bank, and have access to a single online source for compiling guest addresses (imported with Excel, Word, a contact list, or even from Facebook), creating a guest list, envelope addressing (yes, Checkerboard will print your envelopes to match your invitation!) and RSVP management.”
What do you think of Checkerboard’s Fusion Invitations? Do you like the look of these invitations? Would you use an online system for addressing invites and keeping track of RSVPs? And what do you think about the matching accessories and keepsakes? We’d love to hear your take on the new collection!
