Super Mario Themed Wedding Invites

These are custom handmade Super Mario themed wedding invitations made by Larry T Quach for Esther Tanouye and Ryan Watkins, and of course, they are only one of the many things you can do with an old NES cartridge (spoiler alert, this one is much worse).

As well as the invitations, there were also Question Mark Blocks given out to guests at the end of the wedding along with golden (chocolate) coins inside. Guests were also given a piece of card allowing them to choose which food menu they wanted (Vegetarian or not).

New Games As Old NES Cartridges

72Pins, is a (not so well known) company which basically sells NES cartridges. The unique 'service' they provide is that they put new popular game stickers on the front of the cartridge and try to rip people off $20 each, now I'm not going to say this is a bad idea, but this is a bad idea. Despite this, each cartridge sells for $20 (not forgetting $14 for shipping), and depressingly many of the cartridges are out of stock.

I'm not going to lie, the artwork for some of the cartridges genuinely look really nice, but you could just print one of the stickers off and put it on a NES cartridge for under $10, alternatively you could remember that they serve absolutely no purpose and keep your money.

Visit their site to view more new games on old games or to buy these for just under $40 each. That made sense, right?
