Custom Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Chelsea and Matt came to Sweet Paper looking for beautiful, unique wedding invitations for their big day. Their invitations and reply cards featured hand painted watercolor artwork. It was a perfect fit for their ocean front wedding. The watercolor flowers perfectly complimented their natural theme, floral centerpieces, and bouquets. The same artwork was then used for signage on chairs for the bride and groom.

Stationery Trend: A Love of Edge Painting

Screen Shot 2015-08-29 at 11.43.21 AM

Edge painting is the perfect way to dress up an invitation, notecard, or business card. It has the greatest impact when used on thicker papers and in bright, bold colors. Use a color from the existing card or invitation design or utilize this opportunity to add a new accent. Come by our shop to see our current retail selection of edge painted products. Even better, customize unique, personal stationery or wedding invitations and leave a lasting impression on your viewers. Create something memorable with these special details.

Romantic Wedding Invitations


This customization of Smock’s Chapman wedding invitation suite was recently featured on their blog! Our bride, Samantha, wanted a soft and romantic invitation suite for her garden wedding. We think the embossed flowers, tawny matte foil and soft pink letterpress all came together perfectly! We then paired her invitation set with a pale grey chevron invitation sleeve to keep her cards together and lined the envelopes with a vintage floral pattern. The end result is stunning if we do say so!
