Ordering Extras vs. Ordering and Reordering

We’re here to help make your wedding stationery process a wonderful and stress free experience!  When it comes to quantity, it’s always better to overorder than underorder.

We recommend ordering extras, in case of guest list changes, mailing mishaps. It’s also important to ensure you have enough for keepsakes and photography.  

We fully understand that things change and move quickly, and sometimes reorders are necessary.  We’re here to do whatever we can to make all orders, including reorders, as seamless as possible.  

Many people and processes help create these keepsakes, and this process happens whether it’s an initial order or a reorder. The same amount of care, materials, and dedication of time is put into each order, so the cost of ordering 100 + 10 is significantly higher than the cost of 110.

To help save you stress and cost, below we’ve broken out the cost difference for ordering 110 in an initial order, versus ordering 100 and a reorder of 10.

Modern Black Mitzvah Invitations

We worked with our friends at Sweet Paper to bring Bryce’s bar mitzvah invitations to life. Our Pura Vida sample was the starting point, to which we added the motif from our Arches save the date. The Regina liner in black is the perfect minimal pattern to complete this modern suite.

Introducing Dahlman: Vintage Christmas Inspired Holiday Design

We’re always interested to learn about our designer’s inspiration. Our designer Cassidy created the Dahlman holiday card for our 2023 holiday collection, and walks us through her inspiration:

Dahlman was inspired by the vintage Christmas ornaments from my great grandma’s mini Christmas tree! I’ve always loved her tree so much so I knew I had to illustrate my favorite ornaments and turn them into a pattern. I named the suite after my Oma’s maiden name Dahlman, as she’s always encouraged and inspired me to live out my dreams as an artist and designer

The color palette and illustration style was heavily inspired by Christmas cards from the 50s/60s, but especially the 1950s collection of Christmas cards designed by the amazing animator Thorten Hee. You can see these below, along with some real vintage ornaments.

The champagne matte foil and pink pearl shine give the card that retro feel and the red shine foil brings in the holiday cheer! For the typography, I used Dark Paradise for the title and Altesse script to help give the card a retro feel and Avenir helped to add a modern touch.

The card can be printed in multiple different colorways and the illustrations can be moved and adjusted to create something truly personalized. Pictures could also be added inside the big circle cutouts of the ornaments to place photos of your family or pets! I’ve mocked up some alternative color ways below.

Dahlman Option 1 – Holly paper with green shine foil, red shine foil, and champagne matte foil

Dahlman Option 2 – Backer option –  Bella white paper with green shine foil, red shine foil, and champagne matte foil 

Dahlman Option 3 –  Bella bright white paper with pink pearl shine foil, ice shine foil, & champagne matte foil

Botanical Spruce Wedding Invitations

We worked with our friends at Ink Papery to create Karen and John’s wedding invitation suite. The reception card features the botanical border from our Braxton save the date, in spruce letterpress to match the rest of the suite. Our white flower vintage print liner, with a background in acadia pairs perfectly with the spruce letterpress used throughout the suite.

Ivory and Olive Wedding Invitations

We had the pleasure of creating Alexandra and Tyler’s wedding invitation suite. Theon v.2 was the inspiration, and a blind embossed border was added to the invitation card. Olive letterpress on ivory was used throughout, the perfect color compliment to the barn wedding. Our Camber liner in olive completed the suite, adding a rustic touch.

Red and Gold Floridian Holiday Cards

We worked with our friends at Arabesque of Naples to create these custom holiday cards. We combined crisp gold matte foil and deep red letterpress to create a modern festive card. The gold matte was foil stamped in the pearse design for the envelope liner, to tie the pieces together.

Letterpressed + Embossed Wedding Invitations with Khaki accents

Our friends at Oliver’s Twist worked with Greer and Jason to bring their wedding invitation suite to life. Our Euphrasia suite and embossed monogram was the inspiration. We updated the design with an embossed border and khaki details thorough. A knocked out white monogram with black letterpress accents on the reply card mimics the monogram on the invite. The suite is completed by our botanical Hazel pattern in khaki.

Woodland Mitzvah Invitations

We worked with our friends at Write Occasion to bring Eliana’s woodland themed Mitzvah invitations to life. We created a two color invitation border using the botanical pattern from our Augusta sample. The woodland theme was continued on the details card via debossed woodgrain pattern. The woodgrain appears again on the foil stamped liner. Jute paper accents are the perfect touch to add color variety while true to the theme.
