How we Differ
Our influences come from interior design, fashion, fabrics, architecture, industrial design, fine art, graphic design and mother nature. There are no limitations when it comes to design style, fashion or printing methods.
Having been in business for over a decade, we are reliable. We have the processes, knowledge and partners that deliver a high end product, on time and on budget.
We are able to work with almost all budgets and ideas! For those on a tight budget or timeline, our off-the rack collection starts from $5 per set. For those who want a truly original design, there is our annual “hot-off-the press” collection. We can help give you direction but if you have your own unique ideas or influences we can make it happen.
Our wedding stationery services are all encompassing. This includes save the dates, monogram design, invitations, replies, map/accommodation/info cards, printing of addresses, pocket enclosures, envelopes liners, monogram seals, custom ink stamp, postage information, stuffing and mailing services. Day of stationery is also very popular… such as ceremony programs, seating/escort cards, seating charts, menu and table number cards, gift tags, decorative tags, thank you cards and more….
When it comes to printing, we work with a number of trusted partners who offer quality digital, off-set, thermo engraving, foil stamping and letterpress. We help guide each couple towards the right print medium depending on what they are envisioning, making sure this will suit the style of their wedding.
