One of the hardest things for me to do in life is to ask for help. But here goes… Like most small businesses, we have taken a huge hit this past week. With no real end in sight, I’m extremely worried for the future of Sweet Paper. Not only for myself, but my employees, some of whom have families to care for. Now, more than ever, we could really use your support. If you need a card, a gift, or something to make working from home easier, I hope you will think of us. If there is something you’d like but don’t see online, please reach out. We can add products quickly and are happy to accommodate.

If you don’t need anything at the moment, please consider purchasing a gift certificate to shop in store later. For every gift certificate purchased with a value of $25 or more, we are including a FREE GREETING CARD and the postage to mail it! We truly believe it’s the little things in life that bring joy, and we want to help you spread some of that joy!

If you are unable to support us through an online purchase but know someone who could, please share our online store, instagram or facebook posts. Even the smallest of actions can help in enormous ways.

Orders placed online will be shipping on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

For the time being, our custom wedding invitations, party invitations and personal stationery can still be ordered. We are happy to schedule virtual consultations, just shoot us an email to get started – hello@sweet-paper.com.

The best way to reach us is via email at hello@sweet-paper.com. On days we are shipping, you may be able to catch us by phone 858.456.1446.

We love you all and truly appreciate your support. We can’t wait until we can open our doors again and welcome you in with open arms. And you better believe we’ll be giving out hugs to each and every one of you!

Ocean Inspired Wedding Invitations

We had the pleasure of working with Natalie and Ryan on their save the dates and wedding invitations last year. They were married at the Pasea Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, so they drew inspiration for their stationery suite from the ocean, beach and the local surf culture.

Wanting their wedding invitations to be in line with the style of their venue, we kept things simple in pale blue and sand letterpress. The fonts, a slightly retro text layout, and a subtle wave motif added just the right amount of a SoCal beach vibe.

To start designing your wedding invitations, schedule an appointment with one of our Design Consultants using our online calendar or by giving us a call! We look forward to meeting with you!

Modern Organic Wedding Invitations

Last July Sweet Paper teamed up with Kayla Teague from Simply Gorgeous Events for a styled photo shoot at Mission Brewery. Kayla provided an inspiration board, filled with lush organic greenery and moody shades of black and gold. Taking inspiration from Kayla’s vision, our shop owner Theresa designed a modern organic wedding invitation suite. The invitation was simple, with bold typography, while the envelope liner and reply card included watercolor greenery to bring in a softer, organic element. Black envelopes with white hand calligraphy added just the right amount of drama! Coordinating menus, place cards and a bar sign carried the design throughout the reception set up. We think Kayla’s vision came to life beautifully!

Newly Engaged?!

Newly engaged?! It’s time to order save the dates!

Save the dates are typically sent 6 – 8 months prior to the wedding, and even further in advance if the wedding is a destination for many guests. Sending save the dates with plenty of time before the wedding, ensures that your guests will have adequate time to book their accommodations and travel arrangements.

Save the dates can incorporate engagement photos, be casual and fun, full of detailed event information or simple and classic. No matter your style or wedding needs, we can design a save the date unique to you and your vision!

Schedule an appointment using our online calendar or by giving us a call! We look forward to meeting with you!
