Wedding Invitations and Matching Products Made by Zazzle Designers

Share This:

After the ring and the “I Do!” it’s time to begin the planning. Large or small, weddings are events that cause great stress and take massive amounts of time to coordinate. The invitations are usually an important part of that planning. The invitation, or more likely “save the date” cards, will be the first impression guests see. The paper is going to set the stage for the upcoming event.

The internet contains many, many places to find wedding invitations of all types. Some offer upscale foil or letterpress printing. Typography is big these days and unique lettering can add charm and interest. Invitations come in all shapes and sizes and at many price points. I dare say you can find paper in any theme imaginable. If your preference is plain and simple, minimalist, or black and white, you will find those too.

My stores, including Sandpiper Wedding, are run through Zazzle. I talk about this more on my About page. Many professional designers create wedding suites in association of Zazzle, and Zazzle offers specialty paper as beautiful as any found online.

I decided to write this blog post for those people who have never heard of Zazzle, or didn’t realize they offer wedding suites. Zazzle is known as the best place to find customizable designs. Combine custom options with beautiful designs and couples can create invitations or entire sets with their own wording. See the finished product on the screen before you buy.

Sand Dollars Wedding Paper

Share This:

sand dollar beach wedding paperSand dollars wedding paper for the couple who will marry next to the surf. A beach wedding calls for specialty paper and this new design at Sandpiper Wedding is easy to customize. The rounded corners and beach sand background add to the tropical theme with two, big white sand dollars representing the bride and groom.
This design can hold any wording and the text you see here is just an example. Many couples include the families in a general way by having the line “together with their families” at the top, but we’d be happy to set up the text any way you choose. The Sand Dollar Beach set is new so make a request for any items you may need.

Invitation Sets With A Beach / Tropical Theme

We’ve been in business at Sandpiper Wedding since November, 2009, when I decided that adding seashell images to paper should carry over to wedding paper. I began adding wedding items to my first seashell store on Zazzle, “Seashells by Millhill” but realized that a separate store, dealing mostly in wedding invitations and matching stationery would be more realistic. I wanted customers to have a one-stop shopping experience and be able to easily find everything they wanted in each design area.

Now, the old store has mostly home decor and everyday writing paper and cards, while Sandpiper Wedding has the tropical wedding products.  We’ve branched out from using just seashells and also have invitation sets with tropical ocean water and beach sand on our paper as well as hand drawn flowers, sea horses, and palm trees.

Everything with text has easy to use templates for you to create your own wording and if it’s not set up as you want, we are just an e-mail message away.  Unless your changes are very involved, we seldom require a fee for making changes to any of our items, so don’t hesitate to ask for assistance.  Use the contact page here on this blog (link at top) or better yet, send a message using the contact button found beneath every product.  That way the product is linked to your question.

Let’s Talk Specialty Paper

Specialty Paper

Once you’ve found that perfect design for your wedding invitations, the next thing to decide is whether or not you want to upgrade the paper.
Invitation sets at Sandpiper Wedding offers a variety of specialty paper to choose from. The price of the invitations, reply cards and other items printed on the “invitation” paper will depend on which paper type selected.
As the designer, I choose one type that best shows the design and post the product on that paper. I hope that the customer will realize there is always an option to change the paper by either upgrading, or lowering the price by choosing basic.
Changing the paper type may also change the look of the invitation.

As you can see in the picture I’ve added here, this Starfish Border invitation takes on a different look in each of the papers shown. Felt paper will give it a pinkish tint and the metallic (ice) will make it slightly shimmery. Basic paper is plain white so the background will be white.  (Colored invitations printed on basic “white” paper will still have the color shown.)
Most people choose to upgrade to linen or felt, which are both nice, middle-of-the-line price wise. The metallics will be more, but are very pretty and look quite elegant.

At the current time the specialty papers (anything except basic) will cost an additional 30 cents per item, while the metallics will cost an additional 80 cents.
