Graduation 2020 Is it really happening?

Modern Graduation Announcement–

Is this really happening? Virtual Prom, Virtual Graduation, maybe a late summer commencement ceremony……. Usually this time of year my mailbox is bursting with graduation cards from friends and family near and far. I have not received one yet, ( which is a bummer because being a stationery lover, I enjoy seeing which graduation invite they choose.)

I looked through my collection of invites and I really like this one, it is modern, fresh and simple, kinda how we would like life to be right now!

Simply Modern Graduation Invitation starting at $125 for #75, double sided digitally printed.


The Wedding Rollercoaster- COVID 19

My son was just complaining about what a year 2020 is turning out to be, one of his favorite basketball players Kobe Bryant passed away, killer hornets in the USA , Covid-19, homeschool, and social distancing. Oh boy! My best friends daughter is getting married this summer, and they are riding the wedding rollercoaster! They had invitations all picked out (custom design by me- of course!) and the order was in for proofs and then- the Pandemic. I put the order on hold, and watched and waited as my business slowed to a halt. Brides are not sure what to do, not one is sure what to do!!! My friend’s daughter has shrunk her guest list, and is still trying to move forward with her plans. Many brides are scrambling to reschedule, or postpone until the restrictions are eased, some have already printed their invitations for this summer- what do you do?


  1. You can reprint your invitation once you have a set date, I have seen a few companies that will reprint your invitations at a discount. I hope more companies will follow this trend.
  2. Send out a Change of Plan Card, to inform your guests of new plans.
  3. Send out this beautiful Floral Seal n Send invitation in the picture above! If you have already sent out invitations, and have to send them out again, these are a bargain only $175 for #100 and it includes everything you need, an invitation, removable rsvp postcard all printed and ready to go. There are many styles available. The only downside is there is no envelope, it folds up to form its own envelope. They are very neat, tidy and affordable!

Not Your Grandmothers Lace

Lacy Wedding Invitations

I have seen a lot of lace wedding invitations, lace wraps, lace patterns etc….. This invitation takes a twist on lace, and creates a modern lace, classic wedding invitation. The lace pattern is modern, yet feminine, romantic and is now one of my favorites.

The Laser Cut Trend

Intricate Greenery Invitation

Laser Cut Wedding Invitations, pockets, belly bands etc… have been popular for the last few years. Do I think this trend is going out of style anytime soon- No! Laser cut stationery is intricate and romantic. When Laser Cut invitations first came out, there were very few in our albums- and they were mostly trees and branches. now you can find a variety of beautiful laser cut designs. When done well, laser cuts can compliment a wedding invitation and not be a distraction. Laser Cut Belly Bands, are a beautiful way to add a romantic touch to your wedding invitation. The wedding invitation shown above, “Classic Greenery” has beautiful intricate greenery that compliments this classic wedding invitation. This wedding invitation starts at $270 for #100 including the envelope!

For those Colorado Brides out there, this laser cut greenery looks a lot like an Aspen Leaf ! Contact me if you are interested in this wedding invitation or would like a free sample.
