Handmade Paper - The New Wedding Stationery Trend for 2021
Handmade paper is becoming the new trend for couples that desire to express their personalities through exquisite wedding stationery so we invited Fine Art Curation member Papier June to tell us all about what makes handmade paper so special!
AN ECO FRIENDLY PAPER THAT LASTS
We choose to work with the finest and silkiest cotton for its ability to last for decades without fading, discoloration or deterioration, contrary to industrial paper made from wood pulp. Each paper maker has their own recipe but what makes our paper different is that we use only natural and organic products. We believe that wedding stationery can be elegant while having a minimal impact on the environment.
A UNIQUE AND AUTHENTIC EXPERIENCE
Another way in which couples can add a unique touch to their wedding and stand out is by using handcrafted wedding stationery. We carefully work with couples to thoughtfully design invitations that reflect their story and that gives a stunning impression to all their guests. Each sheet of paper has its own one of a kind imperfections in its raw textures and natural deckled edges. The timeless feel of the handcrafted paper contrasted with minimalist design is a perfect match for modern weddings.
AN OLD AND PRECIOUS ART
Making paper is an ancient art that started in the 8th century BC that requires time and patience. Like the rest of the world, the paper making process has become fast paced and industrialized but we seek to return to the roots and bring a genuine artisanal touch to your special day.
Couples that are looking for customized invitations can expect to spend at least $40CAD per suite (based on a 4 piece suite and on a quantity of 50). The pricing includes a fully custom design, handmade invitations and RSVP + envelopes and letterpress printing (including guest addressing and return address on both envelopes).
