A Very Fairy Sweet Sixteen!!! February 23 2015

No matter what the celebration is, the invitation will be an introduction to the imagination of the host. When we sat down with Jessica, we were shocked at how specific and creative her vision was. Every element of design was exactly how she imagined it - fairy inspired magical garden with flowers and vines. This fairy tale event did not leave anything out. The unique liner, 3 diamonds and 2 layer response card came together to become one of our most creative invitations.

This detail of the invitation shows the 3 diamonds that were placed on the invite. In this image you can see that the invitation was laid out with 3 layer metallic layers and many colors that were all the same tone. Using magenta to highlight the event and the birthday girl's name. The event information was colored purple to blend in with its surroundings. Below is another detail image.

Each diamond is individually hand glued. This entire event used over 200 diamonds.

Above is the 2 layer response card with a pink envelope. Mimicking the invitation with the ornate gate frame. Digho provides the addressing service which means all envelopes are addressed to the guest and response envelopes have the receiver address. This allows all the fronts to be the same, creating a unified look.

To keep the design consistent, the thank you card has some of the art elements.

Who still uses stationery??

Our teachers and brides do!!

Some business owners and professionals also use stationery but it is rare these days. There is nothing like a personal note from someone, in their handwriting to make you feel special or important. I know the last time I received a note from someone who thanked me for a great meeting and looked forward to future business ventures, it left an impression with me. I believe many people feel the same way. Emails and texts do keep us connected but a letter always does the trick on a different level.

Teachers receive many useless gifts at the end of the year. I myself have been guilty of handing over a wrapped ceramic apple. But really, what is a teacher going to do with that? I now go out shopping for teachers and before I buy anything I ask myself, “Would I want that?” and most likely I say to my self, “NO!”

A teacher and good neighbor of mine came up to me one day and said, “You know what teachers always need—stationery!!” Being that I own a custom invitation company, making personalized stationery was very easy for me. So I did and the teacher loved it. That was 3 years ago and when she sees me she still thanks me for it.

Along with teachers, we find brides are also writing notes to thank their wedding vendors or help. A wedding thank you is usually where the handwriting stops. Writing online reviews and sharing via social media are nice, but a hand written note always stays on the desk or in the top drawer.

digho can create any and all styles of stationery for yourself or a gift. Leaving an impression is always more meaningful!
