When it comes to the wedding details we love the most, printed stationery definitely takes the cake for us! What’s not to love about opening up an elegant invitation in the mail? Here are 5 reasons to fall in love with print (in case you haven’t already)!
1. Printed Stationery is a Lasting Wedding Tradition
Printed invitations are a long-lasting wedding tradition. We live in an age where everything comes to us directly through our smartphones, so receiving a beautifully addressed wedding invitation in the mail has a more profound impact than ever before. Traditional printing methods, such as the antique art of Letterpress, are kept alive by both passionate paper enthusiasts and couples who want to solidify their wedding day as a formal event while setting the stage for the celebrations to come.
2. Print Creates a Multi-Sensory Experience
Due to the high quality of letterpress and foiling, wedding stationery is typically heavier than the average letter. So your guests will surely take notice, and engage with, your invitations right away. Many love that these printing methods create a tangible, multi-sensory experience that guests can not only see, but also feel. It’s an experience you just can’t achieve with flat printing or digital invitations!
3. Print Customizations Are Endless
The world is your oyster when deciding on personal touches! At PaperCrush, our favorite methods of printing are letterpress and foiling; either technique will add a sophisticated touch to your wedding invites. You can also customize your envelope design by printing on an array of colors and even choose from elegant print methods to accent your suite. Add even more luxe with unique touches such as edge foiling or painting, embossing for texture, and silk ribbons to hold your suite together. No matter what details or embellishments you select for your wedding invitations, it will be uniquely yours!

4. Printed Invitations Show Guests That You Care
While your wedding day is all about you and your future spouse, a beautiful invitation is a great way to show your guests that you care. Your invites don’t just announce your nuptials, but they give your guests all the need-to-know details from the date and location to accommodations and registry information. A beautiful and timely invitation will foster your guests’ excitement for the big day!
5. Print Makes the Perfect Keepsake
When you have high quality stationery, your photographer and videographer will be able to capture the colors, depth, and texture of the paper when taking detail shots. It’s just one of the many ways to commemorate your wedding day!
The invitations themselves are an amazing keepsake that you can display in your house and pass down from generation to generation. You can have them framed, put in a keepsake box, or placed in a memory book (Tip: This also makes a great gift for parents and in-laws!) for years to come.
