Wedding invitations can often be your guests’ first glimpse into the style of your wedding. From classic, formal, modern, vintage, and everything in between, your wedding’s style can be skillfully incorporated into your invites. If you’re in love with the details of weddings and want that to come through via your invitations, Monograham Paper can help you out.
The Unique Style of Letterpress
Monograham is the place to go when you have looked everywhere else for your invitations without any luck – however, my suggestion may be to start there first. Their products specialize in the forever classy, old-world art form of letterpress printing. It creates an engraving-like impression of the font letters and design for a very unique, classic look.
Monograham’s paper products are GORGEOUS! If you’re the type that appreciates the finer things of paper correspondence – say you have a billion different designs of note cards and thank you notes like me – you need to take a visit to this store. Note that if letterpress isn’t your thing, Monograham also does the more affordable flat printing.
World-Class Stationary Expert in Your Backyard
Here is the amazing part – the owner of Monograham, Amy Graham Stigler, is the Creative Director and Designer for Smock and also founded the world renowned Snow & Graham. With this type of background you can be sure that Amy knows her stuff – and when you make an appointment to discuss your custom invites, you get to meet directly with her to walk through the details. Milwaukee is quite fortunate to have someone of this caliber right in our own backyard.
All the design books are made in-house by Amy which gives you an amazing springboard while still allowing you to add ideas and make the invite design your own. Amy suggests when scheduling an appointment to come with a few ideas of inspiration, whether that be a Pinterest page or other visual images. While this isn’t completely necessary as Monograham has a large library of invite samples to page through, having an idea of your wedding theme can help Amy pull a more focused book of invitation samples for you to browse during your visit.
Monograham Flea Market on June 2nd
Personally, I couldn’t leave Monograham without purchasing one of Smock’s cute thank you notes and I’m sure I’ll be back for more soon. If you’re looking for a good time to browse the store and get an added bonus, Amy is hosting a Flea Market at the Monograham store this Saturday June 2nd from 10am – 5pm. It will be full of Amy’s antique collections as well as some other dealers. Having a vintage wedding? Might be a great time to find some pieces for your wedding. As an FYI – no early birds and the scheduled rain date is June 9th from 10am – 5pm.
