Finding the perfect wedding card!

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

I don’t know about you guys, but I will be attending more than a few weddings this summer. And if your mom is anything like mine, she taught you never to show up at a wedding without a card for the bride and groom.

My problem with wedding cards is that they can get a little frumpy for my taste. Lots of flowers and long winded, sappy messages… that is just not my style. Lucky for me, and those of you searching for a more contemporary take on a wedding card, The Paper Place has got us covered! We carry a wide range of fun and funny wedding cards with blank interiors, so you can write your own message from the heart.


What about a card that accurately expresses your genuine excitement? (Emily McDowell $5.95)



Or a card with a modern take on romance? (Emily McDowell $5.95 & Elum Letterpress $6.95)



This card is perfect for that couple we all know who’s quirks complement each other so well. (Wit & Whistle $6.95)



And when in doubt, there are always the beautiful foil stamped cards from Rifle Paper co. Aren’t they gorgeous??? (Rifle Paper co. $6.95, $5.95 & $6.95).

Come on in to see the full selection of our wedding cards, and happy wedding season everyone!
