We’ve all seen wedding invitations before; a couple sheets of paper, some printing, maybe a pocket fold, and an envelope. While many of these are beautiful, and offer a myriad of choices for customization, sometimes the ideas you have for your wedding theme require something completely different. Don’t you want to really make an impression, and give your guests a truly different wedding experience they’ll never forget?
Imagine your custom invitation made out of a non-traditional material; one that will catch your recipients’ eyes, and stir excitement about your special day. Perhaps the theme of your wedding is Alice In Wonderland, asian fusion, or your love of fine wine. We’ve created items for these themes that did not use much, if any, paper at all, including, fabric Mad Hatter hats as table numbers, acrylic lotus flower menus, custom wine bottle labels and even shaped wood bride and groom chair signs.
We can make your invitations out of wood, acrylic, steel, aluminum, cork, and fabric. These non-traditional materials all stir the imagination and make a striking impression, as well. Using different materials together can make for a unique invitation that will delight your guests and start them talking!
Forget your preconceptions about what an invitation is, and expand into what it can be! No idea for a themed wedding is too outlandish for Platypus Papers. Alternative materials may seem daunting at first, but we understand them and can help you create a unique design while making it a fun and relaxing experience. With the proliferation of laser cutters and CNC routers in small shops such as ours, interesting and exciting designs can be achieved, often in-house. And the cost may be lower than you expect, with some materials being close to the same price as paper options!
So, lets work together using all sorts of special materials to bring your wedding theme to life.
