Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: Invitation Consultants

Today’s stationer interview is with Allison, the founder of Invitation Consultants based in Tampa, FL! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

I started Invitation Consultants 15 years ago on a whim. I was thinking of starting a side business, and paper seemed like something fun! When I was laid off from my marketing position, it soon turned into the full-time gig. I wish my story was something more exciting, but really the everyday is the most exciting part, not how I got here.

Get to Know a Wedding Stationer: MLShaughnessy Designs, LLC

Today’s stationer interview is with Meghan of MLShaugnessy Designs, based in North Brunswick, NJ! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

In grammar school I was lucky enough to have a pen pal. (Remember those, long before social media?) There was just something special about not only receiving a little note in the mail, but to go to the store and purchase pretty stationery. I could spend hours browsing boutiques just analyzing the detailed components (i.e. typefaces, design, paper types, etc.) of various notecards. It just made me overly excited to arrive home with my new paper and sit down with a pen in hand and just write. I might not have realized it then, but I always had a love of all things paper. It just wasn’t until after I designed my wedding day stationery that I grew passionate about design. Following my big day, close friends inquired about my work and it wasn’t long before word spread. Since then, I have been honored to work one-on-one with some of the sweetest engaged couples and clients celebrating weddings and various special occasions. I not only love creating one-of-a-kind [bespoke] stationery that will leave guests anticipating each special event, but I cherish the relationships I make with each of my clients that truly forms that MLShaughnessy Designs family.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

Oh wow! This question always gets me. It started out as a hobby, volunteering my time to making flyers and prints for my church events. I found out I really loved designing, and would spend hours trying to perfect a flyer. Over time, with encouragement from my then boyfriend now Husband, family and friends I decided to take the next step …become a paperie designer.

Today’s stationer interview is with Kristin of Brown Fox Creative, based in Fort Worth, TX! Enjoy:

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?

When I was planning my own wedding, I looked around and saw that often brides have to settle on stationery that is kind of their style, in almost their colors… and that shouldn’t be! So, about a year and half later (after I got the hang of being a Mrs.) I was watching my now sister-in-law go through the wedding process herself, and decided I could help brides just like her that wanted something personal… stationery that profoundly says we are not I, we are us, and this is what it looks like.

How did you get started doing wedding invitations?
