Ready to learn how to have stylish stationery for your wedding day? Let’s take a look at some current trends in invitations.


Not only will your ring shine, but so will your invitations! This glamorous trend embellishes your traditional, contemporary or vintage wedding theme. Add this luxurious finish to your invitation suite and day-of paperie or mix this trend with thermography (raised printing) for a shiny impact.


Minimalist designs focus on a bold style, with structured elements or embellishments. Give your invitation suite a bit of an edge with vellum to strike a sophisticated, monochromatic color palette. Embrace the ‘less is more’ mentality. Letterpress is the perfect pairing to this trend.


An intricately cut detail on your custom designed invitation or bellyband is sure to be a showstopper. Elevate your stationery to include this fine laser cut detail. This treatment can be done on cardstock and even on wood, acrylic or metal. Look for this trend to grow in popularity, just as letterpress, thermography or engraving has done.


The first look should always take your breath away. Invitations are the first thing guests see so why not make a statement with an eye-catching envelope liner? These allow you to add some personality through a creative pattern, textured paper, vibrant florals, or a foiled monogram. Make an even bigger statement by using a colored envelope.
