The Paper Mavens specializes in completely handcrafted stationary items for all occasions, including weddings. When a bride has a specific or abstract vision for their wedding stationary, it can often be difficult to find a product that fits that vision. It’s almost like creating your own personal sample book instead of flipping through thousands of pages of high-production invitations. In addition to the invitations, we can create the entire suite of stationary products, including escort cards, menus, favors, and more. The best part is that invitations are truly unique and one-of-a-kind.
Describe your favorite wedding invitation:
When asked what her favorite invitation was Kim described an one with an upscale southwestern theme that incorporated a lot of bright orange as well as more earthly and organic elements, such as faux cow linens and succulent centerpieces. The invitation incorporated those colors, and had great sparkle, the finished piece was then wrapped with a piece of rustic twine. The contrast between that sparkly paper and the twine, and it perfectly summarized the personality of that particular couple and that particular wedding.
Anything that involves design for a wedding can be a very personal process and with that, an in-person meeting is the best place to start. After discussing budgets, they go work on creating samples that reflect their style and their budget. Typically three samples are created and then another meeting takes place to determine the next step. On occasion, a couple will immediately bond with one of the samples we’ve created for them. Other times, they may like the layout of one sample and the papers of another. We do not go into production until the sample is perfect.
