Hi, looking to pick some creative brains.
I want to put my wedding invitation on a mirror.
I was thinking to print it out on a transparency and glue it on, but what glue will not show? How can I do it that it looks like the invitation is "printed" onto the mirror? Or any other ideas for a similar effect?
(Anonymous because dont want you walking into my house and seeing my wedding invitation mirror and knowing who I am lol)

Thermal Transfer Paper: https://www.reddit.com/r/DIY/c.....lass/

or pay someone to make vinyl lettering for you (Cricut)

You could print it on a large clear label, but it will probably be visible that it's a label.

Hmm that sounds cool...
Any other ideas that are maybe more "home made?"

You can do a transparency and use glue dots for each corner, so it looks uniform, neat, and like it is part of the design.

If you stencil it then can you spray some mirror spray paint on it and then remove the stencil? Would that work?

I don't know if it works, since it's small letters, details, etc.
I've done that before when it just says let's say Jones Family...
Do you think it can work with something so small?

Right, or maybe cover it up with other things I want to put on... (Peices of the broken glass, dried rose petals, etc.) It could look really good Smile

Can you blow up the invitation to make it bigger and clearer or just use some of the invitation at a bigger size?
How else could you get it to be clear?
Could you print it onto eg silver glittery sticker and then just peel it and stick it on?

That sounds nice! I wouldn't necessarily put something on all 4 corners though, you dont want t to look too scrapbooky. I wish I could see a picture when it's done!

Link to wikihow on transferring an image onto glass. I don’t think the mention this, but you first need to print a mirror image of your invitation or your text will be backwards.

Very cool idea!

That's very interesting. I don't think you need to do mirror image though. It's almost like you are taping down the image by transferring the image to the tape.
