As we sail through spring and into the heart of summer, brides, mothers-to-be and party planners are looking for the newest and freshest ideas for their event. One of the many important decisions to make will be the stationery you select to help set the tone, the look and feel you want to present. You can be bold, daring or memorable by making a statement with your stationery.
The 2010 color of the year is Turquoise. Turquoise paired with green to give that soft lagoon feel or kick your invitation up a notch and pair turquoise with lipstick red for a more sensual feel.
On the horizon is purple and when paired with neutrals is a classic look or with truffle and browns for the fall.
Personalizing is still going strong and more popular than ever. Name, monogram and initials are appearing not only on paper but also on note cards, magnets, travel mugs and more.
More choices in how products are made like recycled paper or printing with soy based inks. People like having more choices and are searching for alternative products.
Our love of all things French, the romance of France, Fleur-de-lis, Eiffel Tower and scrolls are as popular as before. Still going strong are cupcakes and food in general and butterflies are making an appearance as well.
