Go For The Gold!

How can you have a warm, snowy wedding? Gold might be your magic ingredient; it's warm and cool all at the same time. Paired with white paper and snowflake designs, your invitation will tell your guests that they are warmly invited to your winter wedding.

The technique used here is heat embossing. Each snowflake is individually stamped, powdered, shaken, and heated to produce a shiny snowflake that is "raised" above the level of the paper. Very pretty and rich looking. You can even opt for glamorous, depending on the design.

Another reason to incorporate gold into your invitations is the doors it opens for decorating at your reception. The possibilities are endless. Let us know if you'd like to see more ideas - we are eager to help you plan!

Make it yours!

This week's photo illustrates how small changes can make a big difference in your invitations. The invitations pictured here have only two changes: The mat color, and the stamped image at the top. Yet with a quick glance you can see that they represent the four different seasons of the year.

You can just as easily use something this simple to forecast a theme for your wedding - an anchor for a seaside wedding or a castle for a fairy tale adventure in matrimony. Maybe you want hearts or flowers or a Christmas wreath. You are the one who decides what you want - and we'll do everything we can to make it happen: winter, spring, summer, or fall. We're ready and waiting to make your perfect invitations.

Frosted Romance

Are you getting married under frosty stars? Will bare branches shimmering with "snow" adorn the tables of your reception? The bare branches shown on this invitation are frosted with glittery "snow" and create an arch that serves as the entry way to your wedding.

These branches, with their supporting frame, are a wonderful possibility for invitations. We showed an invitation using them before. (Check it out here.) We've taken the branches from fall to winter with stunningly different outcomes.

As always, you can change the background color, order a corresponding RSVP card, add embellishments, or just talk with us about the possibilities inspired by this design. We hope we can help you invite your guests to the most romantic day of your life. Give us a call and let's explore the possibilities.

And now for something completely different. . .

Are you brave enough to go for the BOLD? It takes a confident couple to dispense with the traditional white invitation. What a statement this emerald gem makes! With marbled printing and gold embellishments, this is an invitation to treasure forever.

We imagine a richly colored and shine-studded wedding when we look at this invitation. Can't you imagine wreaths of ribbons and burgeoning bouquets of every shade of flower?

A reception with tablecloths in this color would be remembered for years to come. Are you bold enough?

Rustic Winter

Rustic weddings have been in vogue for many years now, partly because they are so very versatile! We tend to associate them with wildflowers, mason jars and outdoors, but with the increasing number of venues available, there's no reason you can't have a rustic wedding in the middle of the winter. Se we thought you needed an invitation option for that - and look what our designer Laurie came up with! An invitation perfect for a wedding in the North Woods of Minnesota, the mountains of Colorado, or even at a ski resort in Vermont.

If you've been looking for an invitation for your snowy wedding, look no further!

Winter Wedding

Winter wedding? This design is an incredibly elegant option. The invitation, made from a shimmery paper, features an open front with a snowflake hanging in the opening. Inside, yet another snowflake is stamped giving you three lovely  layers. The center layer is embossed in silver and the topmost flake is adorned with a rhinestone in the center adding to the winter sparkle. Silver satin ribbon provides more texture and shimmer, evoking new-fallen snow by moonlight.

Because the interior space is limited by the large snowflake stamped there, you will want the simplest wording possible (which is also very elegant.)

If you are looking for invitations for a December or January wedding, this design might be perfect. Contact us soon if you wish to mail them out before the snow flies.

Our new TIMELESS line lets you create invitations YOUR way without the expense of creating a design from scratch.

Each TIMELESS invitation has four design factors. Combined they create at least 72 possibilities so your chances of duplication are minimal.

The first two design factors are related to layout. First is whether you prefer vertical (as shown here) or horizontal. 

The second factor is the textured edge. Here it is shown at the top of a vertical design. It can just as easily be placed at the left, the right or the bottom.

Once the layout has been determined you will have two color decisions to make. The first is the color of the printed/textured space. This section is available in white, as shown, or cream.

Then you will want to decide on the color of the mat. In this photo the invitation has a black mat. We are offering eight other choices for your mat: Cherry, Coral, Curry, Marina, Plum, Razzleberry, Slate, and Wasabi.

Now for the exciting part! These invitations cost $1.74 each, including envelopes. And, from now through Labor Day you can order them 15% off.  That's $1.48 per invitation during our introductory promotion.

Sample packs, including a full-sized invitation with text, and swatches of all colors of paper available for use can be ordered for $3. If you choose TIMELESS, the sample fee will be applied to your order. Just send us an email at and we'll get it out to you right away.
