Today’s stationer interview is with Monika of Little Dove Design based in New York, NY! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started with my very own wedding invitation. I wanted something truly personal, that showed my own aesthetic and featured my love of paper and illustration. I later left a lofty career in advertising to pursue my passion for art and illustration and turn it into a business named Little Dove Design. I thrive on working with couples to create wedding suites that feel unique to them, make them happy and be something that will live on as a cherished keepsake.

Today’s stationer interview is with Eva of LoveofCreating based in Winnipeg, MB! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Well, it actually was not really planned. I have always loved scrapbooking and design. I started off with making handmade greeting cards and started my Etsy shop with that. I thought that there has to be more that I can do with my life as I had been a stay at home wife and mom for 13 years. My youngest was starting school and I wanted to do something that I could earn some extra money for my family, but really wanted to be able to work from home.

One day I started playing around with some invitation designs. I had seen some beautiful handmade invitations on Pinterest, and thought, I can do that. I made a few handmade invitations and listed them on my Etsy shop. Before I could even really think about what could happen, the sales started coming in. Before I knew it, I was busy, my invitations just took off. I feel so blessed by our almighty God, he has led me down this path and I am so very grateful.

Get to Know a Wedding Vendor: Glo

Today’s Wedding Vendor interview is with Taryn of Glo, an innovative company that offers paperless wedding invitations and matching websites! Enjoy:

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

I’m Taryn, the founder of Glo, which I started almost 5 years ago. I have a business background, and I love technology, so that makes running Glo lots of fun. Glo helps modern-minded engaged couples invite, inform and organize their wedding guests. We offer an integrated suite of email wedding invitations, responsive wedding websites, online RSVPs and guest messaging tools.

With Glo, you can:

  • Send Glövites: beautiful email wedding invitations, save-the-dates and even a group thank you. All of our online designs have matching paper designs available to order too.
  • Create a Glösite: your multi-page, responsive wedding website. You can personalize like crazy by adding photos or slideshows, videos, interactive maps, or any other widget. You can even specify which guests can view each page.
  • Add unlimited events to your website (e.g., rehearsal dinner and reception) and select which guests are able to view each event. The website only shows the correct events to each guest, thus preventing hurt feelings.
  • Add unlimited RSVP questions for each event, seamlessly collect responses, and view them online or download them to a .csv file. Guests can edit RSVP responses for their entire household, preventing duplicate RSVPs. You can also update your guests’ RSVP responses online.
  • Easily communicate with all or some of your guests before and after the wedding celebration using the easy messaging tool. It’s super easy to ping and remind guests to RSVP or send last minute updates.

You can choose from a range of Glö designs – or upload your own design. Our invitations and websites are responsive, which means they are beautiful on any mobile, tablet or computer device.

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Paper SnapsPhoto credit: Oh Snap Photography

Today’s stationer interview is with Liz Schulte of Paper Snaps based in Kansas City, MO! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I honestly just fell into it! After graduating from The University of Kansas in 2010, the job search was not going particularly well. I was trying to avoid advertising, but I wasn’t finding much else in KC I was qualified for. Trent (the owner) saw my resume online and, luckily for me, he was willing to take a chance on a new grad! All the work I loved in school – branding systems, letterpress, typography, book layouts – turned out to be a perfect set of skills for an invitation designer!

Today’s stationer interview is with Sarah, The Print Fairy based in Melbourne, Australia! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I have always loved colour and pattern and how the combination of these two elements play such an important role in our everyday life through fashion, interiors and lifestyle. I have built my 13 year career off the back of a design degree majoring in Textiles and Graphic design, and from working for a couple of other design companies in both New Zealand and Australia. The Print Fairy evolved from a desire to create a business for myself and after successfully working on the look and style of a few weddings in my spare time, I realised there was a real need for a style overhaul in the wedding invitation industry. I turned that passion into building my website, and 7 years later here we are going from strength to strength.

Today’s stationer interview is with Laura of Lucky Invitations, based in Chicago, IL! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

We were planning our own wedding a little over 10 years ago, and were disappointed with the invitations we were finding. We just wanted something a bit more personal and unique, and thought about creating our own invitations. With my early training in commercial art and his natural born affinity for color combinations, we went to work. It was a very simple and personal invitation which I hand bordered in gold leaf, wrapped with a cotton leaf paper and tied with a ribbon. After that, I made invitations for friends and received requests through word of mouth. Finally, after many years, we made it an official business.

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: I Will Invitations

Recently, we shared this lovely invitation suite by I Will Invitations. Today we’re getting to know Gayle, the talented woman behind the scenes. Enjoy!

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

My original profession as a teacher was thoroughly enjoyable work. When I got cancer, however, I knew that with the treatment I couldn’t be in the classroom enough to make the difference that a teacher should, and needed a career that was flexible enough to fit around me. With all the prior experience and courses I’d done, the obvious answer was something in graphics. One and one together made two when I thought about my own recent marriage and how much fun I had with the planning aspect. Nine and a half years later, I Will Invitations continues to grow. It has survived my health problems as well as the ups and downs of motherhood three times!
