Spring 2017 Stationary Trends

We are so excited to have Devika, owner and designer behind Pink Elephant, giving us all the ins and outs on what is trending in the world of paper goods. We are loving all the gold details! What about you? 

 

Hey hey all you trendsetting brides! I’m Devika, I’m the owner and designer behind Pink Elephant, located in the heart of Highland Park. We are a bespoke invitation studio, and using a marketing background, we specialize in event branding and graphic design to take your invitation suites and stationery to the next level. This year, we’re seeing some really fun trends in the paper world, and my brides have already been sending out super-trendy invites! 

1. Bespoke illustrations

So far this year, we are seeing a lot of bespoke illustrations. Brides are commissioning their artists friends and family members to paint watercolors of themselves, their dogs and their venue. What’s a better way to capture a couple’s story than including those pieces in their invitations and day of stationery?

2. Bright colors and white ink

White ink is the new trend this year. It’s not that common to find a printer who can print white ink, so when I did, I was pumped! It gives such a fresh new look when printing on bright, bold stocks. Are you ready to give it a try?

3. Gold

We have had a couple brides that are just loving adding a big pop of gold to their invitations this year! We offer gold digital printing, an affordable way to gain the metallic feel without breaking the budget. Imagine the statement this makes when your guest opens up your invitation. You want them to treasure it!
