Lincoln firm makes wedding invite face masks, but you can’t wear them

A quirky COVID-friendly way to rearrange your wedding day

With weddings being postponed throughout 2020 due to coronavirus, a graphic designer from Lincoln has come up with a creative new wedding date invite idea.

Julie Armstrong, who runs Invigraph, is a designer with over 20 years experience in the fashion industry, and wanted to make wedding postponements less stressful.

She designed face masks with details of the new wedding date as a COVID-19 inspired way to invite guests again, but they cannot be worn.

The mask instead is a novelty invitation that goes in an envelope and is posted to guests to inform them of the newly arranged date of weddings.

Julie, 45, told The Lincolnite that the reaction for the masks was incredible.

“The design has gone mad on social media, we’ve been inundated with orders.

“We had loads of comments and recommendations, with many customers ordering other styles off the back of seeing these designs.”

She came up with the idea amid all the talk surrounding PPE in public places as a response to preventing the spread of COVID-19.

“I wanted to make it a bit tongue and cheek. The pandemic has affected the wedding industry so much.

“We wanted to tie in the focus of masks at the moment. People are talking about this a lot, so it was an opportunity to tie both together and to get people talking.”

Over 150 people ordered from all over the UK already. You can find this and many other designs on the Invigraph Facebook page.
