From save the dates through the thank-you notes, getting married can require a lot of paper. Invitations Plus does it all and more! The store features top paper companies like Crane, Carlson Craft, Checkerboard, and more to offer clients plenty of options to match any theme they have in mind for their wedding. Within the past six months, invitations with laser cut designs have been popular amongst brides, says owner Yvonne Stein. “Brides love them because the design is beautiful, lacy, and intricate,” she says. “I’ve also seen an emphasis on really nice borders, incorporating tree leaves for example, as well as interesting edges, irregular edges, and embossed rope edges — that’s another trend.” Invitations Plus also offers services such as printed envelopes (if the bride provides the guest list) and custom, in-store printing options, including incorporation of photographs, for those planning smaller affairs. Plus, brides who use its services receive a 20-percent discount on wedding invitations!
