Presentation is everything

This summer, I was approached by a young groom who wanted to do something special for the upcoming union between himself and his fiancée. The two wanted a romantic wedding, that highlighted their love for the fairy tale wonderland of Alice. For those who may remember the story, Alice is prompted what to do next by notes and tags and other hints. In keeping with this interactive feel, we created each piece of the ensemble to include such details. 

These amazing petalfolds feature an ornate laser cut design (by Storkie). The invitations are inserted into the petal folds, featuring images of Alice and the Madhatter. The ensemble is fastened with an enclosure prompting each guest to "Read Me," while the invitation reminds them of the importance of not being late. 

This theme is carried through the remaining inserts, including the directions, which continue to playfully direct guests to "Follow Them" once they have returned their replies in the envelope marked "Return Me."

The couple purchased these petal folds from, along with their corresponding pearl lined envelopes, only. Since Storkie limits the amount of customization, they were unable to meet such a personalized request. For this reason, the interior cards and envelopes, as well as favor tags reading "Eat Me," and "Drink Me" were customized with digital printing by King Designs at Gossett Printing, Inc. The inserts were printed on a Recycled Esse Cover in a beautiful champaign tone. 

The Alice in Wonderland theme is presented in every detail of the event. The programs for the event were a simple 3 piece layered design, tied with a black ribbon at the bottom to double as elegant hand fans. Using a light robin egg blue I created a soft, antique background to feature the artwork, and continue the fairy tale theme.

This custom order left no detail neglected. The presentation of these elements whisks guests away down the rabbit hole, and entices curiosity. The blending of smooth vellum textures with metallic paper stocks sets the tone, indicating a high level of formality to your guests. When choosing the best presentation for your invitations and stationery, it is very important to consider the message you want to convey to your guests.

With King Designs, the possibilities are endless. I don't limit you to certain paper stocks or colors, or themes. I have the skills to create anything you can imagine, and I combine this with my years of experience in printing to provide you with the best solutions. Not only was I able to work with the couple's request for customization, but I was also able to save them hundreds of dollars by using cost-efficient processes. Visit my website for more details on how I can help you create the wedding stationery you have been dreaming of.
