Stationery design what makes the difference
The industry expert: The Paperie Store – Wedding & Event Stationery Design & Production
At the Paperie Store we do stationery design. Our mission is simple “Your job is to dream and our job is to create your dream.” Meredith and her team opened The Paperie Store, to give budget conscious brides the option to purchase unique and elegant looking event & wedding stationery items for their special day. Often this is the thing that gets left off the budget, or consigned to the “I can do it myself”. However, it is important to have a completed set of event stationery so that the wedding guests feel informed and included.
Top tips for the best stationery design
Having worked in this industry for many years, we have consolidated useful tips for the bride & groom to get the best from their stationery design.
- The Style
Your wedding invitation and the on-day stationery should reflect something about bride and groom personalities. Furthermore portray a little of the wedding theme itself. If you are having an autumn wedding, with red and burgundy colour tones you want to incorporate this into your wedding invitation. Also, for cohesive look, carry them through the rest of your wedding paper (like welcome sign, seating plan, menus and ceremony programs).
Whether it be a large banquet or a private event, careful planning of your wedding is a must and will help alleviate any unnecessary stress. Once you’ve decided on your theme and have agreed the guest list and the financial contribution, you should be ready to look for a stationery supplier. Create a board on Pinterest and search the web to see what’s out there. It is very important to find a supplier who 1) quickly replies to your enquiry 2) is flexible with your requests 3) does not charge any additional fee for too many changes on your design.
When ordering your invitations, be careful not to make the common mistake of ordering for each individual guest as some of these guests will be arriving as a couple or family. In addition, it’s recommended that you order a few extra cards on top of your required number. This allows for any mistakes that may happen when writing the invites and also for the extra people who you may have forgotten to add to your original list. Plus, you will probably want to keep one as a reminder of the day as well!
Once the design of your event stationery products has been confirmed and numbers priced, you should consider when and what to order, to keep the cost at a minimum. Good communication with the supplier is key to make sure that their production timeline meets with your receiving timeline. Products like seating plan or name cards are normally last-minute tasks.
The Paperie Store will always ensure that your event stationery and paper goods will be memorable and suit your event perfectly, regardless of your budget and preferred style.
Working many years in the event industry and having successfully completed a lot of last-minute wedding stationery-printing jobs, we want to offer brides an easy go-to production/design house that is flexible and works with the clients’ request (not the other way around). After all wedding stationery is a bit of an obsession here at The Paperie Store.
Each of our stationery design is crafted with a unique touch and customised after a consultation between the designer and client.
How to choose your stationery design
When looking to find the right stationery production house you should ask the following questions to make sure it is the right fit:
- What types of printing do you offer and which would best suit my budget?
- Can you do custom design?
- Apart from my invitation, can I order all my other stationery from you as well?
- Will I be able to approve the design before sign off?
- If revisions need to be made, will there be an extra fee?
- How long will it take for me to receive the finished product?
Beautiful wedding stationery design sets the tone for the event – there’s nothing like receiving a gorgeous invitation in the post to build the excitement for the guests. Moreover, it also gives a great idea of the style of event you are planning. We normally suggest our clients to put together a list of all the paper elements they require to make sure that they are within the budget and to see which element is required. That way they can think about it all well in advance, and won’t miss anything or have to make any last-minute rush orders.
