So yesterday, we went in JB to settle our kad jemputan. I previously blogged about getting a package from Kad Kahwin Cun but we made a mistake that day. We were a bit tired that day and made a noob mistake by ordering 1000 cards for 1000 people. Obviously none of us realised the correct amount is 500 cards instead.
My previously chosen design – I liked how the paper had a nice grainy texture
So we went back to their shop at Larkin to amend the package. We scaled down to 400 pax instead because we had decided on a leaner guest list. Obviously with the drastic reduction of cards needed, the amount needed to pay them was much lesser than what I had been prepared to pay the first time. So I took the opportunity to upgrade my card to a larger size, with hotstamping and inlay. Something like what zzanny shared in her blog. With the very good exchange rate, it all worked out to 55 cents/piece.
We would have been out there earlier if not for another noob mistake – we didn’t prepare the directions for how to get to the majlis venue. So there we were in the shop feeling hot (banyak shops there don’t turn on their air-con) and googling away for public transport directions. Anyway we settled the information required, and the designer will get in touch in another 2 weeks, so hopefully that first draft now is not something that needs major changes.
Anyway they also do berkat – a jar of honey with tags and ribbon can be as cheap as 80 cents per piece. I am seriously considering this.. but I’ve no car, so can be leceh to bring across customs.
But am definitely going to make more trips to JB. The train is a much better way to travel to avoid the jams, and its so much easier to get around there now with Grab/Uber. With the frequent promo codes they have there, the rides are sometimes free!
