Back to the classics
Letterpress
We've been seeing more and more back to the elegant classic Letterpress . . .
Believe it or not letterpress invitations are extremely popular these days. Over the course of the last ten years the interest in engraved invitations has waned and the popularity of letterpress printed invitations began to take hold. Why? Partially because of the influence of Martha Stewart and her wedding magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings. The magazine routinely featured letterpress wedding invitations by hot new designers who were eager to hop on this trend.

"Eco- Friendly Papers


Eco-chic is cool, not to mention it fits perfectly with the "Anthropologie-esque" wedding craze. The wide range of available eco-friendly papers makes having wedding invitations that are lovely AND earth friendly easier than ever before. As always, our standard printing paper 100% cotton that is made from the by products of textile mills in a wind powered factory, but the options don't stop there"

  1. I love how you mentioned coasters...and just today I discovered them! :) I have always loved the magnet idea too! One of my friends did it with a photobooth strip that was also a magnet and they held up a card that said "Save" in the first shot, then "The" then "Date" and the final of the four pics on the strip was the date itself...very cute!
