We know that you know, your wedding stationery sets the stage for your big day! All too often, we see articles that suggest you should DIY your wedding invitations. Don’t get us wrong, we are all about creating your own gorgeous, one-of-a-kind additions to your wedding, but a detail as important as your stationery should be left to the pros! Keep reading to find out why hiring a wedding stationer is the way to go for your big day.
Stationers are Wedding & Paper Experts
Taking on your own wedding invitations can be a huge responsibility (and not one we recommend) for the couple who already has a long list of tasks to accomplish before the big day. This is where we step in! Stationers are wedding specialists dedicated to guiding you through the entire process from start to finish. From mapping out your stationery timeline to properly addressing your envelopes we consider all the details.
As designers, we look at paper options, printing methods, color palettes, and finishings. We have a pulse on seasonal trends, are the first to know of the newest developments in print design, and are committed to bringing your vision to life! We work alongside professional printers and detailing suppliers, managing an array of behind the scenes tasks to ensure you receive the most intimate and elegant custom or semi-custom keepsakes! At PaperCrush, we marry our passions of love and paper.
Stationers Understand Commitment to Quality
If you’re looking for invites that are sure to make an impression on your guests, then hiring a wedding stationery designer is the first step! We’re going to be honest here, it’s nearly impossible to achieve high-end, luxury invitations without using a stationer. Quality paper is often too thick for home printers (think paper jams), which only offer flat printing and are limited in their capabilities. A professional printer is essential to achieving luxurious finishes—such as letterpress, foiling, and embossing—that require large equipment and the expertise to wield them. Online printers, on the other hand, can lack options and quality control (we once saw a bride’s name misspelled on Every. Single. Envelope.).
Here at PaperCrush, we design in-house while you get to work one-on-one with our lead stationer, Anissa, from beginning to end. We outsource our printing to an incredible local printer, working alongside them to ensure that your invitations achieve the style you have envisioned and are of the utmost quality. Once your stationery arrives back at the studio, we take the time to add any finishing details, assemble your suites, and prepare your package for delivery—all handled with care.
Stationers Saves You Time and Stress
Wedding planning should be a time of joy and happiness for you, not stress and tears! We are here to lighten the load and take just one more (huge!) item off of your to-do list. It’s incredibly relieving to know you hired a wedding expert who will take care of every part of the process for you, including the tedious and time-consuming tasks of assembling, addressing, and stamping each invitation to make sure every last detail is perfect.
