01- Mixtape Wedding System by Studio On Fire
This invite pumps up the jam with an old school boom box and mix tapes. We love it for its fun factor and unique departure from most wedding stationery. The horizontal size is different, the illustration is super fun and the couples initials are even in the speakers of the boom box!
