Party Invitation Infographic

Cool infographic about invitations, courtesy of Staples, in time for party season. While it explains the origin of RSVP, it does not mention the percentage of people who refuse to RSVP to invitations, a pet peeve of mine. I’m guessing the current non-RSVP rate is about 75%!
