Just in time for those planning an end of the year wedding, Cutcardstock.com, leading retailer of stationery, showcases new blank invitation paper and invitation envelopes that are perfect for turning into trendy invitations.
Online PR News – 28-June-2012 – Valparaiso, IN – Cutcardstock.com, an online retailer known for offering affordable prices on top quality blank invitation paper and invitation envelopes, is proud to announce new lower prices. These lower-priced invitations offer do-it-yourself brides the ability to afford a fancier looking invitation without going over budget.
“The top trends in invitations for 2012 are all fairly easy to do with a little creativity and effort,” said a spokesperson from CutCardStock.com. “Buying the blank invitation paper and envelopes from us not only frees up some room in your budget, it also gives you a beautiful, expensive looking base product to modify.”
Amongst the hottest trends reported by Ceci New York, an upscale invitation provider, is laser cutting. Laser cut designs are cut out by a special printer which does precise and beautiful cutout work, but is expensive. One way to get this look at a fraction of the price is to purchase a laser cut sleeve, a piece a few inches wide with a laser cut design that goes around the blank invitation paper.
Over sized and unique fonts are another great trend emerging in the 2012 wedding season. Continuing with the expensive look on a homemade budget, brides can take the money saved by purchasing blank envelope paper from CutCardStock.com and hiring a calligrapher to customize the invites. For brides who are committed to making the invitiations at home, a special or unique font can be downloaded for free and used to print on the blank invitation paper.
Another popular trend for 2012 weddings is custom cut envelopes. This is done by cutting the invitation envelope’s back flap to look scalloped or to create the design of an image, like the two halves of a heart.
“Any experienced crafter or do it yourselfer can handle cutting the envelope flap to make it look like a custom stationery store did it. Even Martha Stewart has done segments on her show about how to do your own calligraphy. These things really aren’t as difficult to do as they once were, especially with YouTube videos and crafting blogs available online to help facilitate the process,” the spokesperson continued.
