Ideas for your Wedding Stationery

Thinking of ideas for your wedding stationery? Over the past few months at Spark this very blog has tried to promote the freshest ideas so you can have creative wedding stationery perfect for setting the tone of your event. This post features links to past blogs so you can kind find a specific idea or just learn more about letterpress along the way!

First we should start off with why Wedding Stationery is important. It not only sets the tone of your event (starting with a great Save the Date) but is a great memento for years afterward! Here is our wedding stationery time-line. Letterpress requires a bit more time than traditional flat or digital printing, so just be aware.

New this year is Prairie Paper - aka seed paper - which could be a fresh take on your invitation! Have your guests plant their invitation once the wedding is over and have a great reminder of your special day.

Thinking of trying to save a bit of money? Postcards are a great option! Use a postcard for a save the date or as a reply postcard and save the money on envelopes - also the more eco-friendly option to save on paper waste.

Trying to think of your wedding colors? Our great designers wrote this Insight (design only blogs) on Colors.

Don't forget other fun, creative artwork! Vintage maps (Domestic and International locations) can not only show your guests where they would be going, but provide a creative patten for your piece.

My personal favorite - letterpressed photos showcase you, as a form of art. Use an engagement photo for your save the date, or have a honeymoon inspired thank you card.

Day of items? Why not have a one of a kind coaster or gift tag to complete your wedding ensemble, starting with the save the date!

As always, please feel free to email with any thoughts or questions!
