We now have a complete line of Save the Date announcements online for your wedding. Even months in advance schedules get filled up quickly, and it’s particularly important to let friends and relatives who will have to travel some distance know when they will need to make arrangements to be at your special event.

We have traditional, contemporary, photo, and calendar cards, and even magnets that will be a reminder of the date of your wedding. All of our cards or magnets are now online for easy ordering. For any questions, help with photos or other assistance, don’t hesitate to contact us by phone or email. There is no charge for our consultation and pre-press assistance.

Easy proof online with a variety of attractive ink colors and type styles. Experiment and make changes before placing your final order.

A Green Event & The Gift of Trees

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Many weddings (and other events) are going green. For those who want to give a gift that will last a lifetime, there is the option of giving a tree. The details are yours to work out, but a great place to buy that we would recommend is The Arbor Day Foundation

This link provides gift trees for wedding favors, anniversaries, baby gifts, and many other occasions.

The wedding couple may want to list this in their gift registry.

Environmentally Eco-Friendly & Socially Responsible

Monday, February 28th, 2011

We are always striving to make our products more eco-friendly. This includes our Wedding Invitations of course. We are not only expanding our category of eco-friendly invitations, but almost our entire stock of invitations are now printed with soy based inks. We are working to achieve eco-friendly status on all our printed products. We want to offer the most beautiful and creative designs, with the lowest impact on the environment.

Also, we are proud to welcome 2011 with a list of our Socially Responsible causes. We feel it’s important that, personally and through our businesses, we give back to our communities as a part of the ‘work’ we do. We were very pleased to see that the state of Vermont has formalized this business designation and clearly identifies and supports Socially Responsible Businesses. These businesses provide a percentage of their business to donate financially, give workers time off to volunteer, or donate supplies where they are needed.

Salem Design has always been a community conscious, and we would like to mention the causes and organizations which we support. We support these organizations by donations, gifts in kind, and volunteer our time and talents. For any Salem Design purchase over $100, just mention one of these causes, and we will donate 5% of the purchase price to that organization. And thank you!
Salem Design – Socially Responsible

Rush Orders of Wedding Invitations

Tuesday, October 26th, 2010

We are very happy indeed to have just demonstrated what a great job we do with rush orders. Ordering with plenty of time is always helpful if you can, but if you are in a hurry, we can get it done for you just right, super fast. This is how we did it.

First, we suggested taking advantage of the ability to look through our online catalog. We have hundreds to choose from, but they are well organized and the descriptions are thorough. Also, you can have friends and family looking through our online collection at the same time, no matter where they are, to help you select your final choice quickly.

Next, contact us by email or phone and we will help you finalize your order. We are glad to discuss wording, color, or special touches such as ribbon ties or other extras that you might want. For our rush client, we were able to work out a way to add wording to reduce turn around time for invitation and reception responses. We are happy to assist in any way we can.

A terrific feature of our online album is that you can make color choices, proof right away online, and email proofs to friends and family. If you’re having any problems, we work extended hours and are happy to be of assistance whenever you call or email. Since we were able to get proof approval in one day, the order was placed the next afternoon, the cards were printed next morning, and shipped by end of the print day. So, the invitations were delivered and being mailed to invitees in less than a week of making contact with our customer. And they saved with free envelope return address printing by getting their order in before the end of October deadline. Our goal is to have happy customers!
This is our latest rush order card, # 8719

As planned, after their spectacular wedding, Cricket & Black Magic have moved to other pages. They are on Facebook, Salem Design/Creative, YouTube, and they have their own personal email –

The Salem Dog Wedding DVD is currently our featured item. However, we have also published – with many more to come – photos of the dog wedding.

Also, you might want to check out our growing line of wedding invitations, note cards, and holiday cards, all on the Salem Design website.

Auction site offers super discount bargains

Monday, July 26th, 2010

QuiBids is a new kind of auction website. It’s less like a garage sale with inexpensive but perhaps unique, unpredictable, one of a kind items, such as eBay. QuiBids is different – it might have just what you need such as a new camera or gift cards that you need for your event or could use as thank you gift wedding items. Maybe even a laptop to take on your honeymoon!

There is a flat cost to bidding, which is $.60, but the deals can be phenomenal. It has more conventional items, but perhaps more just what you are looking for, at a deep discount price.

Cricket & Black Magic have Facebook page

Monday, July 12th, 2010

We had lots of fun with the Cricket & Black Magic Salem Dog Wedding. But now that they are officially married and have honeymooned, they have earned a FaceBook page of their own. We will be following them here at Salem Design under our Creative Design link (keeping up with the adventures of these dogs keeps us creative), and we will follow their lives on Facebook “Cricket & Black Magic” as well.

As usual, we will have links to their YouTube location when we do videos of the couple. The new Facebook page:
