Instead of sending traditional save-the-date cards, make it easy for guests to "pencil in" your wedding date with customized writing tools perfect for the job. We chose colorful six-sided pencils and had information printed on every other pane by an online pencil store. Secure a bundle with a rubber band, and mail.
For convenient packaging, wrap pencils in tissue paper and place in a 1 1/2-by-9 inch cardboard mailing tube (available at shipping-supply stores). It will cost about 83 cents to send a tube of six pencils.
