A HANDMADE WEDDING

June 26, 2012

INVITATIONS

Once the decision was made to make 1000 paper kranes for the wedding the rest of the ideas flowed (sometimes) freely!

Place cards, table decorations, guest book, favours, flowers, cake!!! Most importantly and urgently were the invitations... At this point, I am still in Korea and Ken has returned (from Korea) to New Zealand to get back to his 'real' job! Luckily I had plenty of things to keep me occupied outside of school hours.
  

After that, I got down to business... Using Adobe Illustrator I set about recreating a design I had seen online and really liked. This took a lot of back and forth between Korea and NZ as we got the details needed on the invites just right! We wanted to take the design and add our own special touches... which included some more informal language than your standard wedding invite! Until they were 'Sweet As!'



Just to make sure I wasn't taking things too easy I went and bought packs and packs of thick paper in the colour we wanted... drew up two simple templates and traced, cut, folded and stuck together around 100 envelopes for the invites, and 100 envelopes for the RSVPs! 
The end result was awesome, and had that handmade touch that we were going for while looking completely beautiful and tidy at the same time! On a tip from a friend I headed to Chungmuro in central Seoul to the 'Print' area to get the invites done... One day and $100 later I had in my possession the invites to our wedding!

PK SIZING - FIND YOUR SIZE

FOR BEST RESULTS... 

For ideal and best fit, it's always recommended you have around 10-12mms of space in front of your toes. Our size chart is specific to our footwear, and may differ from your usual footwear.

If needing further instructions on "How to Measure" please scroll down below the size charts.

Once you have measured, please take a good look at the info we have provided on our size charts.

HOW TO MEASURE

Stand with feet on a piece of paper, and mark where the end of the longest toe/s are, and middle point of the back of the heel. 

Use a ruler to measure between those two points. (Use your longest foot measurement to choose a size) 

If socks will be worn in the shoes, pop on the socks and then measure in the same manner. 

We also include a width measurement across the widest part of the shoe, this is a measurement of the FLATTEST part of the sole, so there is always more available space than stated, as the sole curves out and up giving your feet more room to spread.

We also have a natural rubber sole that is able to flex with a foot, which helps accomodate feet that have more width. 

While the available length measurements are the same across all styles, the upper construction affects the fit and feel of the shoe. 

See HERE for a more detailed "FIT and FEEL" description of each of our PaperKrane styles.
