Coordinate your program to match your invitation! If your ceremony has a lot of traditions, consider a folded option to inform your guests!
If you opt for a flat program, use both sides for the ceremony order and the wedding party.
If your ceremony is shorter, or your bridal party is small, you can incorporate more design details from your wedding invitation!
Try a folded square option with a vintage monogram for your cerermony program!
Continue your motif from the wedding invitation to the wedding program for a lovely suite!
A trifold program is great for a traditional wedding!
5×7 Folded programs are always a great choice for space and elegant accessibility.
All of your wedding plans and preparations culminate when you say “I do.” So, one of the most important items on your “to do” list is planning the order of ceremony itself!
You’ll want to make your ceremony a unique and meaningful joining of two lives. There are cultural traditions to observe, your faith and family heritage to honor, legal requirements to satisfy and your own personal style and values to consider.
That said there is a standard order of events in a wedding ceremony that will help you be sure that you have included everything that’s important to the two of you.
Opening Remarks or Call to Worship
Declaration of Intent
Declaration of Support
Message or Sermon
The Charge to the Couple
The Exchange of Vows
The Exchange of Rings
The Pronouncement of Marriage
The Closing Remarks or Blessing
Follow this format, personalize it with the things that matter to you the most, and celebrate your union in your own unique way!
We just can’t believe that it’s September! Congratulations to the happy couples who were married in August! Looking back on a few of our favorite wedding invitations, there was so much love – and style, thanks to our amazing retail partners! A few cool trends we noticed in these wedding invitations:
Think Pink! Pink is a popular and fun accent color for wedding invitations! Pair a peachy shade with ocean blue for a playful vibe, or try bright fuschia and black for a really modern take. OR go for the gold and choose gold foil wedding invitations with an accent of a custom pink edge paint! We absolutely love the endless combinations you can make with the happy color pink!
A Touch of Shimmer. Shimmer backers or envelope liners add real glamor to any wedding invitation – whether they’re letterpress, foil or digitally printed!
Monogram Magic. Personalize your wedding invitations with a monogram of you and your partners initials, because: a.) you’re joining your lives and a monogram is the perfect symbol of your union and, b.) monograms are just plain awesome. Go for a minimally chic block monogram OR really play up the romance with an ornate, vintage monogram!
Refined Blind Impression. Blind impressions are so beautiful on letterpress wedding invitations — especially as chic wood grain pattern for a rustic yet refined wedding.

Wedding Party Gifts are such a wonderful way to thank your bridal party for all their hard work and help on your wedding day! When looking for a gift, they’ll love any thing that’s sincere, fun, and functional. Here are a few ideas that we’ve rounded up for easy gift giving.
Fall Wedding season is just around the corner! Here are 5 helpful hints to planning and designing wedding day-of paper:
Coordinate – Keep your wedding accessory colors, fonts, and motifs consistent with your wedding invitation suite. Your guests will enjoy all the details and time you put into coordinating your pieces!
Function + Form – Folded or flat, square or long and skinny — Be open with your stationer about wedding accessory formats that you do like, but be flexible! Don’t forget the purpose of wedding accessories is to inform your guests. If a size or format does not fit all of your text, making the text too small will make it hard for your guests to read. If you’re running out of space for your text on, say a program or itinerary, try a folded option. Also, editing the text is a great way to make your wedding accessories more legible without compromising your design.
Paper Choices – For letterpress, we offer white and soft white stock options. In digitally printed options, we offer a selection of white, soft white, shimmer, and a new diamond shimmer. We also offer navy, urban gray, and black paper with white digitally printed ink. Consider mixing it up for your wedding accessories to really make a statement!
Finishing Details – Fun details like rounded or inverted corners, shimmer backers, and custom edge paint add personality to any day-of wedding paper. We offer hole punching for favor tags or programs so you can easily tie them with ribbon. We also offer variable printing for guests names and table numbers on digital escort cards, place cards, and menus!
Custom Monograms – Consider two different monograms for an extra special touch:
Monogram 1 – just you and your fiancee’s first name initials – to be printed on items that will be used before the wedding – ie Weekend Itinerary, Welcome Card + Favor Tags etc
Monogram 2 – a variation of monogram 1, with your newly married last name initial introduced! This is a great monogram to use on the Ceremony Program, Reception Menus, Escort Cards, and table numbers! Plus you can purchase your monogram to personalize other items like embroidered towels, or use it to make a monogram door decorator.
Continue your wedding theme! Use colors + fonts from your invitation on your wedding accessories.
Consider the function of the accessories, and what format would work best for the text. This couple chose a letterpress ceremony program with a digitally printed text weight insert.

In the job hunting process, it is critical to follow a job interview with a Thank You Note. Taking the time to write a thoughtful, signed and mailed thank you note leaves a lasting impression.
So, what do you write in the post interview thank you note? There are three simple things that you need to include:
Firstly, you must thank the interviewer for taking the time to meet with you. Thanking them for the opportunity to learn more about the job and company is ESSENTIAL.
In the discussion during the interview, you inevitably learned something. Outline something you learned or something you found interesting in the conversation with the interviewer. This will jog the interviewers memory about your interaction, and will show off your great listening skills.
Voice your interest in the position again! Mentioning how your strengths would contribute to the growth of the company is always a good strategy, but also don’t forget to re-iterate your DRIVE for the job. Why do you want the job? Think about the team you would be working with, the Company mission statement, or the position responsibilities that get you excited about the job and express that in your thank you note. David Frost said, “Don’t aim for success if you want it; just do what you love and believe in, and it will come naturally.”
Hiring managers are extremely busy, so the thank you note can serve as a physical reminder of your connection at the interview. Let your Stationery say something about your personal style – in a subtle way. Personal Stationery shows a level of sophistication and dedication to the handwritten note. It makes a statement on its own. Shop Women’s Custom Stationery | Shop Men’s Custom Stationery
