Paper Fancy.

I have LONG held a true love for beautiful, intricate and detailed paper goods. In another life I would have gone into a career in it (and wedding planning). Every opportunity I can find to use some kind of amazing cards, invitations or stationery I do. And I still obsess over other people’s wedding invitations- it’s such a spectacular way to set the tone for your event. And my GOD, the options available now!  Oh to be a bride in the time of Pinterest (when I was planning my wedding I only had magazine clippings and had to walk to the meetings two miles through the snow barefoot….)  No, I’m not THAT old, but I didn’t have Pinterest or wedding blogs to alert me to all the incredible vendors out there!

So here are two paper goods designers that I found that I’m quite keen on and thought you may be as well!

The first is Sideshow Press out of South Carolina.  Some of these wedding suites seriously made me weak in the knees. The liners, the detail, the unique quality to each….just spectacular.  Oh, and they do letterpress, which if you can swing it, is totally the way to go.  Such a rich tactile and textural option.

They also have an adorable inline shop with paper goodies to buy.  Currently they are rocking a scout/ camp theme and it’s quite adorable and perfectly executed.

The other company I found is brand new, called August & Osceola out of my own home state of MA!  I love the wedding suites available here and they also do custom designs if you are looking for something specific!
