When Paper Source fan Stephen C. and his wife announced their big day, they took on the project of creating one-of-a-kind invitations inspired by Stephen’s old train tickets.
We own a public relations and design company, so we were really interested in making our wedding invitations. I designed them with inspiration from my old train tickets from London to Paris that I’ve been using as bookmarks.
The couple’s invitations were enclosed in #10 Open End Shimmer Gold Envelopes with a string and button enclosure that was fashioned by hand. They printed #10 Savoy Cotton Notecards at home to achieve the faded look, then finished with rounded corners.
Using a perforating wheel the couple created a tear-off piece that could be placed in purses and wallets, and the black strip across the top is magnet tape for refrigerator posting.
They also included a QR code on the rear. With a scan of a smart phone, guests are taken to either their Adroid or iPhone app store to download the couple’s wedding app.
With their know-how and creative thinking – and the help of basic note cards and envelopes – the couple created a project that instilled the essence of their wedding’s theme. We were truly excited to hear from Stephen, and equally excited to share his project.

Who’s ready for some wedding inspiration? I am the Kansas City Paper Source Assistant Store Manager, and I wanted to share my wedding invitation story with the PS family!
My fiancée and I decided right away that we wanted a DIY and mostly paper wedding — he wanted it to be cheap and casual, and I wanted to make everything. So DIY was an easy decision!
I wanted a neutral color palette of cement, whites, and gravel. I also love lace. A vintage-modern wedding theme married the two and quickly became our style.
To start, I found a case of 1,000 paper doilies from a website called www.mypapershop.com, and got them at an awesome bulk price! As every bride knows, you have to watch your budget, and I was really excited to make all my inner envelopes with the doilies, so I would save money and have something surprising and different!
