{Papier Tuesday} Luscious Verde

I am a paperphile. 

 

When I saw Luscious Verde online, I was so impressed with the designs and concepts of their invitations.  When i was blessed enough to receive samples, well, it was pretty much over for me.  I am in love with Luscious Verde’s work!  Just look at the name—that in itself is pure fabulousness.

 

 

 

The modern elegance is a breath fo fresh air to some of the constantly overplayed designs that have saturated the stationery market as of late.  The heavy stock, classic designs, and handcrafted touches make you feel like you are holding a work of art instead of a mere wedding invitation.  They are all so refined—perfect for the couple who wants their personality to shine through.  Luckily for you, they are carried in several retail outlets across the country for you to see these gorgeous invites in person. But definitely take a moment to get to know the wonderful ladies at LV. As a mom, I loved their story, as well as the way they give back each month to the community.  Moreover, in addition to their recycling and giving back efforts, they have developed HOOT—which creates the most dynamic designs with post-consumer waste paper, which is better for the environment (learn more about HOOT)

 

They were even sweet enough to send me some handcrafted thank you cards—and a pirate notepad that my little ones have confiscated to leave random ransom demands in my work tote… all signed “Captin Jack Sparro”

 

Thank you again, Luscious Verde team for sharing your wonderful designs with me and I can’t wait to share them with our brides!

 

PS—be sure to check out their blog and enter their $5,000 custom stationery giveaway!

Haute off the Press: Haute Papier

I will be the first to say, I think this is absolutely divine!  I love how well thought out and intricate the designs are.  All of the “stock” sets from Le Catalogue are available in flat or letterpress, which allows you to add extra embellishment (or not) to your favorite design.  What is even more thoughtful, is that each set is named after an acclaimed romantic author.  The Couture line takes inspiration from the clients’ wedding themes and creates a wonderful paper experience!  What was even more enthralling than the designs were the awesome bios of the creator and president of the company– Sarah and Erin.

 

 

From the Catalogue line:

 

 

Browning— A beautiful damask invitation and wedding paper set.

 

 

Emerson– A lovely swirl invitation and wedding paper set.

 

I was so very impressed by their couture lines; I think you will be too!

From the Couture line:

Amy—  made from Thai silk with a “Chinese frog” door handle design

 

Jessicaa Save the Date made from a vintage postcard from Washington DC. 

 

MarissaWedding invitation set made from a gorgeous baroque design with papers of various luxurious colors and textures.

 

Nicole Wedding invitation set made of Thai silk with a design that opens like french doors.  Rich in color, texture and embellishments.

Mimio :: The Artistry of Paper

I stumbled across the fabulous designs of Mimio while reading a magazine the other day.  It was instant romance.  I loved the papers– and the designs were so rich, I felt like I could feel the complex textures through the pictures.

{Papier Tuesday} I Do Design

Another fabulous week has arrived, so that means another fabulous invitation company!  This week, we are loving I Do Design.  It is not hard to see why from their gorgeous designs.  I love that they aren’t too girly or frilly. Instead, they are modern, sometimes retro, natural, and just beautiful!

Another thing I love about I Do Design is that you can get a current design customized or you can have them create an invitation that is couture to you.

{Papier Tuesday} Real Card Studio

I had an opportunity to come across Real Card Studio, and fell absolutely in LOVE with the modern, yet so chicly romantic! They feature the hot new trend of the art of the letterpress, hand dyed ribbons, hand lettering artists, and hand assembled invitations. What is even better is that they are at a retailer near you! Check their website for your local Real Card Studio retailer.

All of their invites SCREAM personality! Here are some of my favorites:

{Papier Tuesday} Bella Figura

I’m late, I know.

My new work out and schedule is putting me on my butt. Literally.

box I did have to blog about a fabulous  invite company that I am swooning over. Bella Figura has been on my list of beautiful invites for a long time, but I recently received a GORGEOUS box of samples from them that has made me their number one fan.

bellafigurapink I am so big on romance– but this takes it to a whole new level for me. It’s almost like a vintage romance. Letterpress is soon becoming the new black among couture invitations. Bella Figura uses cast-iron presses on 100% thick cotton paper exclusively made for them by a historic European paper mill. As their letter to me said, “Letterpress is a historic way of printing, like engraving: it’s both time-intensive and timeless”. The work is beautiful– I couldn’t help feeling like I had traveled though time and was reading a love note.

What’s even better is that their paper is made form reclaimed fibers. But Bella Figura’s green efforts don’t just stop there, they are 100% wind-powered and carbon neutral. They also donate 1% of their sales to environmental causes by 1% for the Planet.

The Bella Figura print shop also offers binding, calligraphy, edge painting, die-cutting and assembly of custom pocketfolds and enclosures, duplexing, double-sided printing and color matching using the Pantone Matching System.

Andrea, thank you SO much for allowing me to experience Bella Figura first hand. I am truly enamored.

This little card was adhered to the front of a beautiful chocolate envelope that held a few duplexed cards. It was beautiful! Here are some of the pieces that came in my samples kit. It consisted of coasters (which had the couple’s name and wedding date on one side and a signature drink recipe on the other), invitations, menus, and other cards. So swoon worthy.
