Due the popularity of the  MONOGRAM ETIQUETTE GUIDE and INVITATION ETIQUETTE GUIDE, we decided to work up a lovely little STATIONERY 101 Guideline to share!

Over at EMMA J DESIGN, we often receive questions about stationery format, etiquette and types of products available. We thought this would help everyone know the various stationery items available for personalization!

We’ve had the opportunity of working with our favorite local stationery store in Savannah, Georgia called La Paperie. Owner, Debbie Lewis wanted a new look for her luxury paper business that better represented the Parisian feel she had in mind. Using French inspired antique lettering, we designed a custom monogram and calligraphy letterstyle.

I have had the pleasure of working with two clients recently who adore letterpress stationery – the ultimate luxury!

For Heather, I commissioned local calligrapher, Bride Whelan, to hand letter her name in a beautiful script in Heather’s signature blue color. Heather’s stationery was printed on 220lb Crane Lettra – super textured and thick. Both are beautiful in person and I know they are excited about putting them to use!

For Andrea, we letterpressed her custom wedding monogram in metallic gold on ecru 160lb cardstock.

It’s about time! Time for me to finally design and decide on my own letterpress stationery. I just received a beautiful package of custom letterpressed stationery from my wonderful printer (Fireside Printing) and I could not be more thrilled with the results. The wardrobe is 2 pieces: A7 Flat Notes with a fretwork board and EM interlocking letters in addition to a small 4Bar Flat Card with my name in calligraphy by the talented Bride Whelan. I plan to use the larger cards for longer notes and correspondence and the smaller cards for quick notes and enclosure cards. We printed the wardrobe in my signature seaglass blue color on 220lb double weight Crane Lettra. Let me know if you are interested in placing an order for custom letterpress stationery for yourself – it is the ultimate treat! [email protected]

For all of the frequent blog readers, you may remember this lucky gal that received a custom monogram and letterpress stationery wardrobe from her husband for her Birthday. View the post here. This same creative husband approached me before Christmas last year and we created this uber practical basket of goodies. 
Everything in its glory!

I attended a monogram shower for my friend, Summer. She is so excited to be getting married and part of that is celebrating her new name! Brooke and I joined forces and created a unique basket of monogrammed items including double-sided flat baby blue stationery with her new initials on one side and her new name on the other. Also included were calling cards for gift giving with the couple’s combined monogram. To top it off, we did monogrammed cocktail napkins to use for entertaining.
I just love how her vintage monogrammed turned out on the blue rugby stripes.
