5 Helpful Hints for Smart + Stylish Wedding Accessories

Fall Wedding season is just around the corner! Here are 5 helpful hints to planning and designing wedding day-of paper:

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
  5. 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.

3 Tips to Writing Post Interview Thank You Notes

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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

Top 3 Trends for Summer Wedding Invitations [Photos]

It’s the first day of August and we’re reflecting on our favorite Wedding Invitations from last month. Couples who were married in July showed us that romantic wedding invitations can have traditional elements and modern touches at the same time. Check out a few of our favorite wedding invitation trends this summer:

  • BOLD COLORS, MODERN TYPOGRAPHY. July’s wedding invitations were super chic with bold colors and contemporary typography. We love these crisp contrast of the color combinations in these summer wedding invitations from last month:
    • Sleek yet traditional navy with silver
    • Poppy orange and black
    • Cool ocean turquoise and warm gold
    • Striking hot pink and shiny silver
  • THE MIDAS TOUCH. In letterpress wedding invitations, traditional gold continues to be popular color! It’s a warm and elegant color choice for a summer wedding, and is neutral enough to use as the overall color or as an accent color. Hints of gold were incorporated into a few of July’s wedding invitations by means of shimmering gold envelope liners + backers, gold foil motifs and glitzy gold edge paint.
  • CUSTOM DESIGNS. We LOVE to customize our designs to meet our bride’s or groom’s vision. The below letterpress and foil wedding invitation was created from one of our older wedding invitation designs, but we completely re-vamped it for our bride. The bride and groom embraced bold colors, modern typography and custom touches for a uniquely beautiful wedding invitation. For this invitation suite, we custom mixed the pink letterpress ink and pink edge paint – which were used through out her whole wedding suite and day-of wedding accessories (more photos of those pieces coming soon!) The two color letterpress and silver foil invitation was stunning, complete with a custom map made by Melisssa Kartler of Pretty Paperie. The silver foil and silver letterpress played perfectly with the silver foil pinstripe envelope liner. The result is jaw-dropping gorgeous!

Congratulations to all the newly weds who honored us by choosing us to make their invitations. It’s our pleasure to create wedding invitations this sophisticated! Thanks to our amazing retail partners who worked tirelessly with us to create these wedding invitation masterpieces:

Fall Wedding Invitation Inspiration + Tips!

Dear Fall Brides and Grooms,

We rounded up a few of our favorite Fall wedding invitation looks for your inspiration. Here’s a some quick tips and ideas to consider before you order your invitations:

  1. Experiment with paper color. Choose a paper stock that suites your venue, or wedding theme. Consider a shimmer stock, or a dark stock with white ink for dramatically beautiful wedding invitations.
  2. Opt for romantic fall motifs + details. Grasses and leaves are pretty Autumnal art additions to any wedding invitation suite. Wedding Monograms play perfectly with a laurel wreath. Or choose a classic vintage monogram from our library. Deckle edges are soft and sweet, and look lovely with a vintage monogram.
  3. Pick a pocket. A pocket invitation is great option for a suite with multiple inserts – like accommodations cards, welcome party invitations, custom maps, rehearsal dinner invitations, or brunch invitations. Vary the sizes of the inserts in the pocket for a nice layered effect.
  4. Be adventurous with ink color! When it comes to ink color on your wedding invitations, showing your personality is what it’s all about! We’ve been seeing a lot of pretty powder blues and aqua colored inks in this fall wedding season. It’s an unexpected color for fall, but it’s stunning and unique.
  5. Accessorize! Add an envelope liner or shimmer backer to any wedding invitation suite for a glamorous touch.
  6. Foil Fever! Letterpress and Foil go together like peanut butter and jelly. It’s just such a sweetly classic combination. Of course, foil shines on it’s own, especially paired with a darker painted edge.

Whatever you choose, we know it will be uniquely you! Our talented retail partners are equipped to guide you through this process. Find a store in your area to schedule your wedding invitation appointment!
