If you are getting married in the near future, it is important to make sure that you have wonderful wedding favors to give to your guests. Many people do not want to give generic gifts though. If you want to give one-of-a-kind gifts to the guests that come to your wedding, consider having custom bookmarks created out of metal for your guests. Use the guide that follows to learn how to have the bookmarks created as your wedding favors.
Choose Your Design
You first need to choose the design that you want for your bookmarks. Many machinists can now cut metal into very intricate designs. You'll be having the bookmarks mass produced so it is important to make sure that you choose a design that is great for men and women to use. This will ensure that your guests are able to get the most use out of the bookmarks that you have created as they possibly can.
Choose the Quantity
Next, you need to decide how many bookmarks you want the machinist to make. You want to be sure that there is at least one bookmark created for each guest that is coming to your wedding. It is important to remember that some of your guests will be bringing dates with them and you need to be sure to have enough bookmarks for their dates as well.
Choose a Machinist
After you know how many bookmarks you need created and what you want them to look like, you need to find a machinist to make them for you. Find a company that specializes in metal machining and let them know exactly which were looking for. They'll be able to tell you if they can create the bookmarks for you and if so how much it will cost.
Determine the Deadline
You want to be sure that the bookmarks are finished a few weeks before the actual date of the wedding. This will allow you to embellish them with ribbon or any other decorations that you want to use to make them look like a gift.
Once all of these things have been decided upon, your bookmarks will be ready to be made. Before mass producing the bookmarks the machinist may ask you to come back to the shop to look at the first bookmark that he or she needs. This will ensure that you approve of the design of the bookmark so that no major changes need to be made after all the bookmarks have already been created.
