Introducing Beautiful Paper Wedding Essentials from Smock. – with an Exclusive 15% Discount
I adore beautiful stationery and so today I am super excited to be sharing a new collection of Wedding Essentials from eco stationery experts, and lovers of the historic craft of letterpress, Smock. There is so much to love about this little eco print shop, the sister company of Bella Figura (who, if you follow CVB, you will know is a favourite of mine! You can see posts featuring their luxurious wedding stationery here) I don’t even know where to begin! Smock not only creates the most beautiful letterpress invitations and stationery (all designed by Amy Graham Stigler and printed using antique printing presses), but they also ensure that they do so sustainably. And to celebrate the launch of their latest addition to their paperie suite (and CVBs 3rd blogiversary) the lovely people at Smock have kindly offered you an exclusive 15% discount with the code ‘cvb3bday’ on their wedding essentials collection, which includes everything you could possibly need to complete your big day: wedding cards, wedding stationery, and tabletop accessories.
Smock is an environmental print shop based in Syracuse, New York who follows sustainable printing practices: they are wind powered, source recycled packaging and reuse packing materials from their vendors; and print either on an exclusive bamboo paper or 100% PCW recycled, FSC certified paper. All of Smock’s goods are made locally in Central New York with the planet in mind, and if that isn’t enough to make them the obvious choice for any eco conscious bride-to-be, they also donate 1% of profits to environmental causes; and offer bus passes to their employees as well as subsidize local organic produce for them through a discounted CSA subscription. You can read more about their green printing here – this is a company who truly practices what they preach!
This year, Smock added a variety of new everyday wedding essentials including stylish, foil-stamped table numbers, coasters, and escort cards, to their existing ranges of holiday and gift cards, tags & wrapping paper; and stylish studio stationery. Their table number cards are chic and simple in design, sure to compliment any wedding theme, season or venue. Available as blank cards for you to finish as well as numbered sets of 1-10, 11-20, and 21-30, with escort cards available to match each the table number designs.
Aren’t those Mr & Mrs Coasters just adorable?
In addition to their tabletop stationery, Smock also offers a variety of gorgeous wedding thank you cards, which are available in bulk packages of 30, which even come with a sweet little keepsake box, they’re ideal for those all important post wedding thank-yous! (which by the way should be really be sent a couple of weeks after the wedding, and definitely no longer than 8 weeks later!)
And if you love their ethics and values as much as I do, Smock also has a collection of custom wedding invitations and stationery. Each suite features everything you could possibly need for your big day: invitations, save the dates, rsvps, menus, programs, rehearsal dinner invitations, escort cards and more. Many of the designs feature Smock’s gorgeous, and exclusive, hand calligraphy fonts, which are only available through Smock and were developed with talented calligraphers such as Molly Jacques, Sarah Hanna, and Debi Zeinert. Creating the wedding invitations of your dreams is easy peasy with Smock: Customize a design to make it your own, choose from endless ink colors, patterns, fonts, paper colour, envelopes, motifs, monograms and more; and combine any of their printing methods (letterpress, foil stamping, blind embossing or digital printing) Then once you have the suite that perfectly suits you and your big day, have it printed on their luxurious (and sustainable) bamboo paper and delivered to your door. Here are just a few of my fave designs…..
It makes me wonder why Mr E and I ever thought DIY stationery was a good idea!
