Okay, back to sharing another gem I found while at the National Stationery Show last month... Acrylic invitations!!! So. cool.
The company that makes them is allie munroe. They had several different examples and they all blew my mind! I totally think this should have been a "Best New Product" contender. Maybe I've been living under a rock, but I have never seen anything like this before. Note to self: I've got to find an event to use these beauties!
Any color! Any shape!
Look at this awesome wedding correspondence. Click the image to make it larger so you can see the crocodile-skin-like envelope. Again, just awesome! Another take-away to notice from this picture... instead of generic "save the date" terminology, they said "clear your calendar" and it's on a piece of clear acrylic. Details people, details!
They also had plastic options. Maybe they are cheaper? I don't know for sure, but I think that is what the representative told me? Same great look though!
allie munroe has other great stationery products as well. My favorite was this birth announcement. Simple, modern and yet still captured the cuteness of a new baby.
1+1=3 -- Love. it.
Speaking of invitations and stationery, I'm finishing up the design for some wedding invitations that I'll share soon. They are timeless and classic. Just got the thumbs up from the client today!
