A Very Designer Easter

And by "designer" we don't mean Louis V....

We have some really fabulous invitation designers on our Paper Style team (most of whom have really cute kids or dogs). They're the ones who come up with the designs that you fawn over before deciding to buy invitations from us, and we love them. Since last weekend was Easter, and that usually gives us an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, we asked our designers to submit any great photos they took this past weekend!

Stephanie's (of InkTree Designs) bulldog Bella really got into the Easter spirit!
So did Terri's bulldog puppy, Winston!
Amanda (of A plus B) sure has some cute kids!
As does Sarah Beth (of White Dog Paper Co)!

Hope you all had as happy an Easter as all these happy (and cute) campers!

Friday Link Collective {Earth Day 2014!}

It’s been a busy year here at Paper Style, and we can imagine it has been for you, too. But we definitely want to take a moment out of all the craziness to recognize that next Tuesday, April 22, 2014 is Earth Day!

So for today’s Friday Link Collective, here are some great links for celebrating the Earth!

2014’s Earth Day theme is “Green Cities”. You can learn more about what that means for all of us here!

Earth Day is all about helping in whatever way you can, whether you plant a tree, recycle, or buy local, there are immeasurable ways to make a difference. There are a usually events all around the nation that you can attend or volunteer at to spread awareness. Here in Atlanta, there are at least four big events put together by various colleges and communities.

If you don’t really have the time to volunteer, the Earth Day Network suggests participating with an Earth Dinner, which involves “planning a dinner with as many local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as possible – supporting local and organic farmers”.

Got some cookie monsters on your hands? These super cute Earth day cookies are easy to make and fun for the little ones. And whatever they don’t eat is left to you… So it’s a win-win, right?

We love these t-shirts from the guys at biff tees, demanding respect for your Mother (Earth). They’re made with “cotton, ink, hard work, and love”, a perfect combo for Earth Day.

Wishing you a happy & green Earth Day!

Ladies & Gentlemen, we present to you: Dara!

If there’s one thing that’s important to us at Paper Style, it’s family. Since the majority of Paper Style employees have been with the company for at least five years, the emphasis has always been on family; outside the company, of course, but inside as well.

This past weekend, Dara, the daughter of Paper Style president, David, performed in her school’s annual production! Dara, a sixth-grader, has been in the Davis Academy plays all 7 years of her attendance, along with other students from grades K through 8. This year’s production was Willy Wonka Jr. Dara had the part of an oompa-loompa, and we thought this photo was too charming not to share with y’all!

Great job, Dara!

The New Year Brings New Designs!

We may only be 9 days in, but we hope 2014 has been treating you well! At PaperStyle, the new year brings new designs for new joy! We've seen a plethora of baby and bridal shower invitations coming through and its always so exciting for us to see our newest designs in action! We've even got some favorites of our own:

Type Stylist, Robyn, & Type Stylist Manager, Susan, both love our Chevron Chalkboard Rainbow Bridal Shower Invitations. Robyn says this design "hits on 2 of [her] favorite hot trends right now.....chevron and chalkboard. The colors are so vibrant and happy! It looks great printed ~ the paper quality is so nice and the colors pop!" And Susan calls this design "fun, modern, snappy and eye-candy appealing!"

Considering how many designs they see in a day, I think it's safe to say they know a good design when they see one...


Director of Operations, Kim, Social Media Coordinator, Aimee, and Web Developer, Shkiha, are big fans of our new Shower The Bride Invitations. They love the “retro” vibe and feel that the flowers and colors are different than most of our other offerings, which makes it quite unique.


Terri, our Purchasing Manager, loves our Pretty Gift On Blue Baby Shower Invitations because of their simplicity and "they say damask is the new trend" (and trust us, Terri's on top of all the trends). Type Stylist Traci also loves that this invitation is "another clean, classic look."


Paper Stylist Karen is a fan of our Pea In The Pod Yellow Baby Shower Invitations because, she says, "These invitations are perfect for a neutral shower when the gender is not yet revealed! Pea in the pod, a classic theme, never goes out of style!!" These invites are a great choice for mommies-to-be of single or multiples babies! (The card only gets cuter with more peas in the pod, right?)


But perhaps one of the most collectively popular of our new invites is our Baby Clothes On Chalkboard Blue Baby Shower Invitations. It's such a classic theme, and so versatile. We carry many variations of the clothesline baby shower invitation, but this one features a chalkboard background (there we go again with the trends!) and banner with great font options!


One of the reasons we love this invitation so much is because the clothesline theme is one that's pretty simple to carry out at the shower itself, and it always looks cute. Ashley, the daughter of our COO, Diane, threw a baby shower this past summer and put up a clothesline on the mantle to carry the theme through:

Come on, how cute are those little tiny clothes?

These are just a few favorites of all of our newest designs. Be sure to check out the rest of our selection at Paper Style to celebrate your new joy, whether it's a wedding, a new baby, a new home, or just a new TV (Super Bowl party, anyone?).

Lots of love for 2014 from The Paper Style Blog!
