We Likey: Ink

Everyone knows I am such a technophile– if there is an app for it, I’ve probably got it.  This is why I think the new app  Ink Cards is perfect for couples who engage through technology with family and friends.
Apps for Wedding Invitations, Save the Dates Announcements

Why not share your  BIG news a little more physically this year, instead of announcing it on Facebook or sending a mass text message. Try sharing your news with a cool new app!

Ink is a card app that marries digital with snail mail. You can customize and mail unique Save the Dates or Announcements straight from your phone. You can add your own photos, special notes, and other personal touches with just a few clicks, and then a few days later a totally custom card arrives in the recipient’s mailbox! Best of all, you can skip a trip to the post office and let Ink Cards take care of all postage, printing, and shipping.

Apps for Wedding Invitations, Save the Dates Announcements

Ink Cards is all about making your wedding planning even easier. All of your sent cards are saved, just in case you’re in line at the grocery store and realize that you forgot to notify Aunt Marjorie about your wedding- just open the app, pull up the card on your phone and send away. Once addresses are entered they are saved, so sending Thank You notes from a beach during your honeymoon is an absolute breeze.

Apps for Wedding Invitations, Save the Dates Announcements

It’s the perfect new way to share the big announcement or even send your save- the- dates for the bigger day! Here is a great video showing you how it works:

I am soooo in love with Swiss Cottage Designs!

Their fresh, vibrant and ultra creative designs brings out the personality of each piece.  From Save-the-Dates, invitations and custom maps, they offer wonderful heartfelt designs that are like a piece of art more than a piece of stationery.

Courtney Jentzen opened Swiss Cottage Designs (based in Brooklyn, NY) in 2010 after years of working in the gift industry as a stationery designer. Drawing insight from her design and illustration background, Courtney incorporates a range of bold looks, artistic trends and color schemes to suit each customer.  To help customers navigate the sometimes overwhelming design options, Courtney engages each and every client to draw inspiration and incorporate their unique style (rustic, vintage, casual elegance) into the design process, often including illustrated images and hand-drawn typography.

{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!
