Niki and Brent

We love Niki and Brent's paper goods - organic and relaxed - and the perfect introduction to their fall Cedarwood wedding. Along with their invitations, we made programs and custom CD covers for their guest favors... how awesome is that? Enjoy Susan Hudson Photography's photos along with a few of ours and check out our Steller album with our photos!

new stamps for 2015

Each year, the United States Postal Service release new stamps celebrating a variety of things - anniversaries, people, events and are increasingly getting better at also having some really cool options for that postage that's required on whatever you mail. As a paper company, we hope they continue to understand that the large population of mail that's first-class, full-price postage rate is social correspondence and the sender and receiver would love to see cool stamps as they shift through the mail (though I imagine people shift through less and less now as they have electronic bills, etc.). There's a few new stamps that I think will look fabulous on all those invitations we're already working on... For now, the postal rates will stay the same, though there's already an increase in the works for late April - sure to add 'fun' to our summer mailing of invitations. Here's our top picks for new stamps that are going to grace envelopes wonderfully this year: These hearts make typography lovers smile just looking at them. They're already available for your Valentines. The others below are not available yet, but will be soon.
These botanical, black and white versions of both the first class, one ounce and second ounce for heavier invitations are going to be a wonderful addition to the standard wedding stamps already available. I'm certainly a lover of the water lily - especially having some in the garden and being continually surprised as they bloom, hide and generally entertain me for the summer. Won't these be nice on blush, gold and pastel envelopes announcing a garden wedding? I think so, definitely. For now, we'll watch and update as the rates for postcards and non-first class, first ounce service is very likely to see a change in the late Spring. Hopefully, the USPS plans ahead and has the stamps waiting, though, not likely.

Heather & Michael's Wedding

It's a beautiful day today - and we've got a great wedding for you on the blog today that's just been featured on Bridal Musings. Heather and Michael's invitation was amazing - a custom designed gatefold to match fabric used at the reception with a lace bellyband with tag and twine. Their invitation was gold-foiled with hints of peach. We made matching tags for their favors as a part of their big day. Enjoy a couple of photos from Amanda Suanne Photography and check out the rest of the wedding on Bridal Musings and Cedarwood's blog!

Edie and Damian's wedding was all about the South! We loved how they wanted their guests to have FUN and they did lots of cool things to keep them having a blast!

Planning and flowers and general coolness by Simply Yours Weddings. Also, check out our Steller album for Edie & Damian!

Lauren and Sam!

Every year, we have a number of couples that know how amazing the right paper goods can totally make their big day. Lauren and Sam are one of those couples for 2014. We worked on so many amazing goods for Lauren and Sam and I'm so excited to see some professional photos from Lauren that I just had to post them! We also created a Steller album you'll have to check out! As an added treat, we put together the welcome bags for their out-of-town guests, so here's a few photos (and ideas) of them! Don't you just love their logo that we carried throughout their paper goods... and the gold foil - AMAZING. {invitations, save the date photos by Nyk and Cali!}

We loved getting to work with Summer of Social Ambitions on Julie and Mark's October wedding! Julie and Mark were just the sweetest and it was just a pleasure to get to meet with them (and Mom!) for their big day! We did a pretty big Steller album of their big day - and now we're posting the real photos here from Matt Andrews! Enjoy!
