If there was a Paper Source in Rochester (or even within a 100 mile radius) I would be at both of these spectacular events!


On February 21, 2009 Paper Source invites you for an afternoon of complimentary demos, make-and-takes and inspiration for your big day!

11:30 am – Announcing the Big Day
12:45 pm – Inspired Invitations
2:00 pm – Tasteful Tabletop Décor

On March 5, 2009 the wonderful PS invites you to the Exclusive Wedding Suite from 6:30 – 9:00 pm. Sip sparkling champagne and enjoy chocolate dipped strawberries while you create a full suite of wedding samples — including a select group of letterpress invitations, escort cards, favors and table accents.

These events are at all Paper Source store locations! Have fun! If anyone attends, please report back! I would love to hear about it!

I have always thought that the United States Post Office needed more “cool, design friendly” stamps than what they usually have. Luckily right now they have these awesome stamps dedicated to Charles and Ray Eames for their “groundbreaking contributions to architecture, furniture, design, manufacturing and photographic arts”.


I am not ready to send my invitations right now! I am not even ready to send my save the dates! So now what? Do I have to use the grand ‘ol flag? On some sites the stamps below are available (but they are worth .41)!


I like the sunflower, even though it does not match my color scheme, it is appropriate for the time of year – summer!

Snippet and Ink! Look to the right and the link to this lovely blog is there!

Kathryn has provided every bride to be (or anyone that wants to throw an amazing party) daily inspiration with her beautiful color boards, ideas and links to many other websites and blogs! She is also kind enough to give credit where credit is due to others!



Now I must give credit to my gal Darcey for letting me in on this blog awesomeness! Thanks Dar!

My Mom and I could not wait to design my sister’s wedding invitations. We also (more my Mom) could not wait for the assembly of the invitation to be over. Because it was Lauren getting married, I HAD to do something out of the box (but actually we ended up creating within a box). Lauren and Andrew’s colors were blue, cream, khaki and brown. I designed this:

Instead of mailing out the invitations in envelopes, we bought (Mom bought) great stationery boxes from the Paper Source. I wanted each guest to receive a little, fun package to open.



Each invitation fit perfectly in the box. Underneath lay the weekend events, hotel details and response cards. We (Mom) also tied a small white golf pencil in each package for the guest to fill out their response! My sweet, wonderful and amazing mother also hand stamped all 200 invitations, 200 events cards, and 200 hotel cards as well as tied 200 small golf pencils to each invite. She is amazing, that’s all I can say.







The favor was a mixed CD with everyone in the bridal party’s favorite song, or first dance song (if they were married). We used the CD holders as place cards for guest to find their way to their table. It is not shown here, but each half moon envelope had the guest’s name and table name printed on the front.

Lastly the weather, the flowers and the gorgeous tent tied everything together, making this the most beautiful weddings I have ever been too!

When Sarah first got engaged to Whitney, I was really excited to design her wedding invitations. Her colors were brown and orange a combination I would work with anytime.

Her bridesmaids wore a great dress in chocolate brown from JCrew (I would provide the exact link to the dress, but they no longer carry it) and we carried the most beautiful, bouquet of flowers!

It was a very special (and BOILING hot) day! One of the most fun weddings I have ever been to!

I created this invitation very early in my graphic design career. It was fun because Erin (the bride) and I got together at her house one day and assembled everything. I am pretty sure a few beers were involved! I printed each invitation on Star Dream Opal. Looking at this paper on the website does not provide justice for it’s beauty. You really need to see the real thing! We mounted the invites and reponse cards on Star Dream Mars Red. Gorgeous!


Erin’s color combination was classic: Black, red, silver, cream/white. Very elegant and formal. Considering that Erin is an event coordinator, everything was beautiful and perfect!

This is the first invitation I designed when I was in art school in California. Danielle’s cousin, Becca, wanted something orange and very simple, and I delivered (Becca was happy, and that’s all that matters!) Did I mention this was also the first invitation I got paid for?
