Hello, we are JoAn and Toni, and we are... Paperholics!
Alright, so it was a hobby at first: this paper here, that ribbon over there, 3 rhinestones on the other cover, a velum on top of a photo, and soon enough both our homes allocated more space for paper than our families. The good news for you is that we looooooove to play with paper and cannot wait to hear your ideas so we can craft something unique and truly fabulous, all on your terms and budget.
We'll give you some ideas here and a ton more when we meet in person. However, keep in mind that although we cannot write a infinite web page describing all ideas we have and things we could do, virtually anything is possible: there is a seemingly infinite supply of paper types and colors, and we're just looking for an excuse to buy more paper, ribbons, velum, and many other goodies, to create the funkiest thing you ever imagined.
All kinds of things can be made with paper to add bling and class to your wedding celebration: save the date cards (if you are not ready to send invitations yet but want to make sure people will not plan to go elsewhere), invitations, directions to the ceremony or reception hall, programs, menus, favors of all shapes and sizes, and thank you cards.
The most popular set is $5 + tax = $5.35 (you will need one per household, not per person invited). This contains the invitation, RSVP, one custom insert, typically directions / information card, and the envelope. Adding more paper (like a colored backing or semitransparent velum), or ribbons, and rhinestones, or photos, and funky shaped envelopes adds to the cost of materials and the time it takes to make your treasure chest of impression boosting tools :) Some items are worth making fancy, while others can be kept simple. Also, in order to save money, you may want to consider grouping some of these items in little packages. For example, a two sided cover / booklet could include an invitation, directions, and an RSVP card.
We created 4 categories for our creations to indicate fanciness and price level. As you will see, for some items we do not think going full bling (super high scale) is necessary. A table card can be just that. However, if you need to make a statement, our scissors are itching for a cut! Thus, the categories are:
Sweet & Cute
Very nice, yet quick to make, they are made up of your choice of paper - with nice page arrangement, font and computer graphics
Artys & Touching
A step up in class and price is to add your choice of colored backing or a second sheet; and possibly a printing of a photograph
Charming & Delightful
Charming & Delightful
Well into arts and crafts territory, these items will impress with velum covers, rhine stones, embossing, cut-out slide-out covers and other super cute ideas
When you need to Wow! some people this is what you use. Only a few of the items typically get this much attention - and they are meant to be keepers - photos included in invitations, extra bows, ribbons, and additional pages inside
Based on our years of experience, we created several packages that will cover what you need, will save you time and money. The packages are packs of 25 - since most people will plan for 50, 100, 150 guests - so packs of 25 seems to make sense. While we can make pretty much anything, from simple yet stylish to extra fancy, most people seem to be very happy with an invitation, RSVP card, matching envelope and one other insert (program, directions, or whatever else you wish for).
Our typical, middle of the road, and most popular package is:
$5 for a set consisting of the following:
