Wedding Invitations are our specialty at The Paper Empire. We design and create beautiful and unique wedding invitations and everything you need to go with them, from RSVP and information cards, to all event day stationery for your venue.
Our beautiful invitations are designed and made in the design studio at our Melbourne store. We have a selection of in house ranges to choose from, with modern invitations, floral designs, classic elegant typography and more. We also love to create custom wedding invitations, and you can work with the team in the Studio to create a brilliant one of a kind wedding invitation suite. We do all our own high quality digital printing in house, and we can also create invitations with specialty finishes like foil, letterpress and laser cutting.
What we do
Creating wedding invitations brings together all our favourite things – creative design, beautiful stationery and people in love! From your engagement invitations and save the date cards, to your wedding invitation suite, the table stationery on the day and your thank you cards – we can help take care of it all.
We have a lovely range of in house designs to suit the style of your event. If you’re looking for elegant invitations there are chic black and white designs to choose from or classic traditional styles printed on luxe metallic cardstock. We have pretty florals, bold prints and invitations featuring beautiful handmade paper.
There are endless options to customize invitations from our in house ranges. We can change colours, fonts, size and the cardstock it’s printed on. You can create something truly unique without the time or the cost of a fully custom design. Of course if you have something special in mind, we love creating custom, one of a kind invitations as well. Whether you have a pinterest board full of inspiration or just an initial idea you’d like to explore, we can work with you to create beautiful wedding invitations that will make the ultimate first impression.
Acceptance, information or wishing well cards don’t just have to be practical, they can be a beautiful addition to the look of your invitations. We can create finishing touches like belli bands or help you pick the perfect ribbon. Our ordering is completely flexible, you can create an invitation suite that involves exactly the pieces you need.
How It Works
You don’t need to make an appointment to come into store and view our invitations and beautiful paper. Pop in anytime, and you can chat to one of the team about your wedding stationery. If you see something you like or you’re ready to get the wedding stationery ball rolling, we will create a quote based on your exact quantities and the pieces you’d like to include.
If you’re not a regular in Melbourne or Brisbane, just get in touch! We can whip you up a quote if something on our website or instagram has caught your eye, or you can let us know what you're looking for and we can email sample images from our range of designs. Our design proofing and approval process is all done electronically and for digitally printed invitations, we can send you a physical sample before we do the final run so you can make sure everything is perfect!
Letterpress and Foil Printing
Letterpress and Foil Invitations just have that certain something don’t they? The beautiful texture and bold colours make for an amazing impression (pardon the pun). Letterpress creates a luscious textured finished, and works perfectly with heavy cotton card stocks for a luxe, elegant invitation. Foil (or foil stamping) is perfect for the eye catching impact of metallics like gold and rose gold and looks equally amazing on crisp white card or deep colours like navy and emerald green.
Addressing and Envelopes
How amazing is that feeling when you open up the mail box and there’s a special looking envelope with your name on it? Envelopes don’t just get your invitations to your guests in one piece, but they’re a chance to make an amazing first impression and set the tone for your stationery.
We can’t help you track down your second cousins new address, but we can create custom address labels or envelope printing in the same font and style as your invitation. For something extra special, why not add envelope liners? Continue a design motif on your invitations, add a complimentary pattern or go all out with glitter paper (that doesn’t shed!) for real wow.
